We spent the afternoon down at UCSF consulting with Dr. Adil Daud - a
very knowledgeable doctor who specializes in treating melanoma and
co-directs UCSF's Melanoma Center. He talked with us about some of the
different treatments that are currently available. Dr. Daud also
recommended some other tests that will help us determine the best way to
proceed after the surgery. It is really great to have his expertise
available to us.
Tomorrow morning, Madeline will be admitted to Kaiser hospital at 7:00 am. First
they plan to do a test on the possible spot on the right side of her
neck, and then they will do the long surgery where they take out all the
lymph nodes on the left side of her neck.
Thank you again for your prayers and for all the encouragement. We're hoping Madeleine gets a good night sleep tonight!
