In late December 2016, Lori began feeling a congested feeling in her lungs, but associated it with having one of the various bugs that were going around at the time.  In January 2017, a spot of squamous cell skin cancer was removed on her chest.  After doing a bit of "googling", Lori found that occasionally squamous can metastasize, so decided to go in to her provider to have the chest congestion checked out.  An  X-ray was taken and came back as acute pneumonia.  The first round of antibiotics did not take care of the congestion issue, so a stronger antibiotic was prescribed. After the second round of antibiotics did not clear the congestion, another chest xray, then a CT scan, revealed a large mass on her right lower lung.   A bronchial scope and PET scan were completed.  These tests revealed lung cancer that was completely  contained in the lower lobe of her right lung.
