The charge nurse from Head and Neck Surgery finally called Wed. morning with an appointment for Erin to have the core biopsy today at noon. Clark took Erin in for the appointment. (My sister Patricia arrived Wed. from Denver and we were tied up with a bridge game.)
Dr. Cua took 2 samples from the spot at the base of Erin’s neck. I asked Erin if the process hurt, and she just shrugged and said she has had so many procedures in the last 7 years that nothing really phases her.
Dr. Cua said that the results would be back next week, and wouldn’t speculate about the possibilities.
Erin really enjoys talking to Patricia. Whenever she hears Patricia and me talking in the kitchen, Erin appears on the scene.
