Brain Scan: Beautiful! Nothing in there that shouldn’t be there. Emily’s dad, Kevin, is convinced this is because her head was solid bone already though 😉
Pulmonary Lung Function: Now this is a good story…
The technician (who had no idea why Emily was having the test) told her at the conclusion: “You have great lungs!” When he asked Emily why she was having the test, she said it was ordered prior to surgery. The tech responded, “Well, it’s really important to have good lung function for surgery. And that is not something you need to worry about. Your lungs will get you through it!” Emily, God bless her, did not have the heart to tell him that she was having surgery to remove one of them.
Surgery is now scheduled for February 4th or 5th, with a pre-op meeting with Dr. Flores on January 31st…meaning Emily and Miles will be in New York NEXT WEEK!
Many thanks to all who have reached out and given their support in finding a place to stay. Emily and Miles are currently chasing down all leads and will let those who have responded know if further help is needed. They are so grateful to everyone for stepping up and charging into the search – they couldn’t do this without all of you!
