I know we are all sitting around refreshing so here is the latest update.
Today turned out a little different than we all thought. The procedures completed today include a microlaryngoscopy and bronchoscopy. Both of these are accomplished with a scope and are non-surgical. They took approximately 1 hour and the purpose is to take some biopsies and visualizations.
Tomorrow there will be a meeting with the “tumor conference” to work on next steps. The diagnosis officially changed from sarcoma to squamous cell carcinoma. Sounds like surgery is still a possibility for removal. Additionally, chemo and/or radiation treatment are anticipated. The PET scan showed no sign of metastasis which i believe is a good sign (even though I am far from being a doctor).
Paul will go home today as well.
