    Ok, so. I have a tumor on my eye. Probably a melanoma, but could be from the lung cancer. I have to have a radiattion patch sewn on to my eye and keep it for five days and then removed. They will take a biopsy of the tumor to see what it is, but this procedure will work for both types of cancer. Used to they would have to remove the eye, but lucky for me they do this now. They said I will most likely lose some of my vision, if not almost all. The radiation does damage to the optic nerve. I'm a bit nervous about this one. I really was hoping not to lose my site. Will see how it goes. I'll let you know how it goes. Surgery is Aug. 27th. I will have to stay there for five days because of the radiation patch. So I'll go home on the 31st.

    Thanks Rose. I'll keep ya all updated... I also had a girl who I met in chemo gave me this card about a website called advocacyconnector.com. They have a whole list of organizations that help with cancer patients. They have all kinds of programs to help with finances, travel and just getting a ride to appointments. I hope it helps...

    Thanks SG, the nurses and doctors say attitude is everything with this disease. I've always had a good attitude though. I always try to stay positive. This disease makes it tough sometimes though. The nurses at the chemo place say I always came in with a smile and that always put a smile on their faces. They love me.... lol Green MOJO SG. :D
