My name is being used fraudently to ill represent me. Please be cautious of any information you receive with my name. including,,, anything from anyone claiming to be Engi Nowaira online. Otherwise, I will be representing myself in person so that everyone will have opportunity to identify me in person.
My previous drivers license was also stolen. The new one has extra security features on it.
My Surgery
My surgery is scheduled for March 5, 2009. They will attempt to go in robotically to keep from splitting the chest wide open. The mass per surgeon's observation is about the size of a lemon.

While the location suggest malignancy, it is small enough that he isn't thinking that is the case. He said we won't know until he gets in there and then gets it to pathology.

My health history presents additional risk as does the myastenia gravis. He was very thorough and even took us to look at the cat scan to show my husband and I what we were looking at and what he is taking out.

I feel comfortable with the surgeon and confident that he can take care of this appropriately.

Mom to Matthew, 01/16/08, GERD baby, has been on Zantac since 2 mos. Aidan, his twin brother, no GERD. Max-ed out on Zantac at 1ml-3 times/day, and switched to Prevacid 15mg split tab 08/20/08. Switched again to 20mg Prilosec 09/18/08 due to Prevacid's restlessness/headache side effects. Reflux was out of control again and had to switch to 10mg Nexium 02/11/09. Good result so far.
You're in my thoughts and prayers that the surgery goes well and you recovery is smooth. It was good that you found a good surgeon that you feel very comfortable with.
