Subject: BS: Curmudgeon's Vocal Cord Cancer, Oct. 200
From: Bat Goddess
Date: 18 Oct 09 - 07:17 PM

Here's the initial thread -- Original Thread - Biopsy, etc.

We take the Downeaster to Boston tomorrow morning. Figures, Durham is the only station that has no accommodation for leaving a car for 5 days. So Jeri has generously offered to drive us and our week's gear there "so ear-li in the morning" -- and keep an eye on our felinities during the week we're away.

Tom's got pre-op tests, etc. tomorrow afternoon then his surgery with Dr. Zeitels is on Tuesday. He'll spend Tuesday night in Mass General, then we stick close to the hospital (Holiday Inn Beacon Hill -- about a block from the hospital on Garden St.) until Friday when we can come home.

My presumption is that he won't be able to speak after this surgery for a couple days -- vibration of the vocal cords encourages scarring, and that's not good. He didn't see the pictures (tiny camera down his nose), but I did -- there's a fair amount of cancerous tissue to remove from his right vocal cord.

I'm taking an antique (read: slow) laptop with me and should be able to hook up with the hotel's wi-fi to keep in touch here and at Facebook.

Linn

They should be on the train to Boston right now. Linn has the laptop, and Tom had a smallish suitcase that I swear weighs about 50 lbs. Tests and 'poking around' are on the agenda today, and then some lying around and Linn trying to get the laptop to work (which will probably involve some Bad Words). I hope it all goes smoothly.

I should have mentioned earlier that we have available at the Neil Young Center for the Terminally Screwed, a special warehouse program. Right now, our Spare Parts Repository is a bit low, but we do however have a fine assortment of artificial parts that require no anti-rejection meds by the user, although in some cases the meds may be needed by those around the recipient.


For instance, we have 27 "Nancy Reagan Vacuous Smiles" which are always in demand by those who have spent time in the James Taylor Rehab Wing for the Chronically Bland at the NYCFTTS. Modeled after James himself, we also have 48 "Pre-Conditioned Electronic Voice Boxes" programmed to make everything you sing sound like "Fire and Rain." Of course there are always a large supply of the special model (built for Neil himself) of the Neil Young "Fart of Gold" Rubber Assholes.

If some of this can be of help, let me know as the NYCFTTS and all its services are free to 'Catters.

Good to know that Spaw.

I just had a call from SINSULL. Linn's laptop and wi-fi card don't want to play well together and so she is off line for the present. Once she gets to a working computer she will report on how things went.

They are waiting to see whether Tom will be sprung from the hospital today.
