deanna swan My unexpected journey

On July 12, 2017 I had not been feeling well all day, but I had a wedding to prepare for. That evening I developed severe pain in my left side. Early July 13, Hunny took me to emergency room at Hoag where they discovered a 3.7" benign tumor on my left kidney that had started bleeding. I was taken for a angioembolization to stop bleeding. I was then admitted to hospital not knowing whether I would make it to my Princess's wedding 1 week away. I needed a blood transfusion on the 15th and was able to go home on the 18th. I am currently waiting to have as much blood dissipated around kidney to enable surgeon to save as much of kidney as possible. Will update as soon as possible.
