I just got the best news!

Well, I'm gonna make this short. Since Nov 2004 I've been seeing doctors for a tumor. Getting to see the right specialist and getting squeezed into a very busy schedule has taken forever. The specialist I'm seeing told me it looks suspicious and he wanted a biopsy done. Weeks later, this past Friday, I finally have it done. For the last four days I've been going nuts waiting for the results. I got a call today and the tumor us benign!!!!

I'm in such a good mood, I think I'll let hubby take me out tonight an buy me a fish. :P

I'm still facing surgery to have it removed but, bah, that's nothin. Right? lol

Yay me!!!

That's great news. Don't take the surgery too lightly, as any surgery has risk, but be overwhelmed that it's not cancer.

How soon til surgery?

I'm not taking the surgery lightly and am not looking forward to it. But, considering what I could have been facing....
I've been warned already that due to it's location, there is a major nerve that runs through it that could get severed. But, I'm not thinking about that right now. I'm just so happy it wasn't cancer.
I'm not sure when surgery will be but it's probably gonna keep me from going to meet everyone in Baltimore. They told me it would be next week or later til they call me in just to talk to me about the surgery. Not sure why they need to do that but, I'll go talk to him again. Then it could be weeks again before it gets done. So, I may be in Baltimore, but not at the aquarium. To soon for me to tell though.

I'm relieved to know the tumor is benign. Although you face possible surgery for the tumor...it is a relief to know.

Go out to dinner...have a good time. Kiss the kids.
