Good News

We are home from surgery. It has been a long day, and we are all tired.

But I knew you would be checking for an update.

Everything went well with the biopsy.

We know that the mass is not malignant.


Unfortunately, we still don't know what the mass is made up of.

They have sent the tissue off to pathology to find out what we the mass is made up of. It will be the end of the week before we know for sure what it is.

It could still be an infection.

Or it could be a benign mass, the doctor had some super long 20-syllable word to name it, I will have to call the office tomorrow and have them spell it out for me.

If it is this, she will need chemotherapy still. But not the worst kind, that causes your hair to fall out.

The details are all groggy, I am exhausted, and emotionally spent.

But we know it is not cancer, and that is enough for today.

I'll keep you posted on anything new.

Thanks again for caring and for your prayers.
