Update on my health

Thanks to everyone that have left me messages here, Twitter, Facebook and emails. I appreciate the comments and I did read every single message. Thank you.

Just a quick update -

Doctors still think I have a infection in my lungs. Since Sunday I've been on different types of antibiotics through an IV line. In order for them to give me the correct antibiotics, they need to see what exactly it is that I have in my lung.

Which means that later today they will be putting a camera inside my throat and take pictures and take small samples of the infected area. They will take it to a lab and we won't know the results until Monday the earliest. One doctor told me that it's either a infection or I have lung cancer. That scared me. I'm just hoping it's a infection and I can avoid surgery. I've gone through two lung surgeries before and it's not a nice time.

I saw my son yesterday for the first time since Sunday morning. He got so happy.

As you can see, I look like crap. And my son is enjoying his nap.


How cool is this? Thanks Tommy....



I will let you go now. I don't have energy to be on the laptop. I will most likely update you Monday or Tuesday. Have a nice weekend everyone.

Why do doctors throw the C word around like nothing? Take things step by step, as of Now you have an infection, Monday it will be clear what type an infection it is, THERE are SO many types of infections out there like STAPH, which are hard to diagnose some time. Disregard the c word!

Love your Blog,
Oscar

Robert, I don't know you, but I feel like I do from reading your blog. I pray that God will take care of your lungs and whatever the results from the test are that you would be at peace. I pray that it's just an infection that can be cured by some meds and no surgery will be needed. I also pray for your family. God Bless.

Ask me to pay not to pray, cause that makes no difference. It's the same song and dance when this happens on the internet, then people are going to get butt hurt and call me out. The fact remains saying all these nice things is to make YOU feel better, not the person who is in trouble. I hope the doctors know what they are doing and medicine has advanced enough to take care of it.
Of course when the person gets better it will be "god" who gets the credit.
