We were both feeling pretty good and were very anxious for more answers. Check out Trent playing it cool while he was waiting.
Before he went in for surgery the nurses were explaining everything that would be happening. She mentioned a port-a-cath. I didn't know what that was so I asked. She told me it was for the chemo. WHAT???!!! We were not expecting chemo! She fell all over herself trying to say it might just be a precautionary thing. She quickly got Dr. Silva to explain things a little more. However, we knew something was up and it wasn't good. Trent was anxious and I kept telling him not to assume anything but to wait for the doctor to explain. After what seemed an eternity Dr. Silva arrived.
Apparently he found cancer in Trent's lungs also. A couple of spots on each lung. So as far as I know right now, Trent will start chemo next week. Immediately following surgery we will meet with the medical oncologist, Dr. Kissinger, who will map out a treatment plan.
Truthfully Trent was a little shaken up and I was doing my best to cover my panic. I am not sure how well I did. I kept assuring Trent he would be fine and we would move forward with fury and faith to beat this. Right now I am sitting in the waiting room shaking like a leaf trying to type this. Strangely, everytime I am in the same room with Dr. Silva I feel totally calm. The whole time he was explaining about the CT results I was completely dry eyed and taking in as much information as I could. I let a couple of tears slip as I kissed Trent goodbye and told him I loved him.
