Tomorrow’s Surgery

November 30th, 2008

Hey guys,

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  I had a great time hanging out with my family and more importantly eating all of the great food!

So, tomorrow I have surgery very early in the morning at Christ Hospital.  The procedure is called a Radical Neck Dissection.  Dr. Popp and his team will remove all of the lymph nodes in the right side of my neck.  The surgery will be about four hours and I will stay in the hospital for a couple days.

I feel that I know what to expect this time around and I am just anxious to get through this.  It is just a step on the road to recovery and I am willing to do whatever it takes.  I will start the Immunotherapy about a month after this surgery and I will remain in Cincinnati while the drug is administered intravenously for the first month or so.  I hope to return to Colorado as soon as I can and hopefully get some skiing in this season.

As always, thanks to all for the support.

-Andy
