Dr. M from Tampa called just minutes after I walked in from dropping off the kids at school. I'm so grateful I didn't have to sit around a wait for the phone to ring. Jake just happened to be home (he is usually out the door by 5am), but had slept in a little bit due to a sore throat and hadn't left yet, so we spoke to the doctor together.

The plan, surgery mid June to take more tongue tissue and replace it with soft tissue from my arm. Even though the recent pathology and scans look reassuringly good they want to be as safe as possible and make sure ALL the "bad cells" (I hate the c word) are gone. And although I really don't want more surgery I know this is the best route and will give me the peace of mind I need to move past this. It's a big surgery, a week in the hospital, but Dr. M says I should have a good recover and full function/speech after healing. No chemo, no radiation! Just surgery, recovery and an awesome summer of fun with my boys! Yippee!

I'm planning on having a lap top with me during my mute days in the hospital so I can email, blog etc. I'm counting on all of you to entertain me!

The crossing guard at Nathan's school got hit by a car this morning. She was taken away by ambulance as I left the school. I hope she is OK.

I saw the baby deer this morning. Alone, without it's mommy....for the second time. I watch too much Animal Planet because I called the wildlife hospital for them to check on it.
