The waiting is worse than anything. Just remember, anything they remove counts towards your weight loss

And don't forget to tell them you are on a weight loss diet. They will cooperate with you. Today these are for you.

I agree with Fiona that the waiting is the worst. We are waiting for my sister's surgery date for her back (cancer) and it is a day by day thing. I am so thankful for you that the original biopsy came back benign. It is still good to get it out of there - you will feel so much better.

But SB, you are strong of mind and, thanks to the pool and the gym, of body. You will get through this. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Let us know when the surgery date is and come here for encouraging ANY TIME you need it!

All of the doc's are going to consult this week & we go back next wed morning. They will discuss 1 of 3 options. The first, they feel, will be to do a laprascoptic biopsy where they would be able to get a bigger piece of the mass. Another option would be to leave it alone & watch it for approx. 3 months & see if there is any change. The last option would be to surgically remove it, they are aprehensive about just going in & doing that without more to go on. I just want it to be gone! Tomorrow we meet with the radiology oncologist for a consoltation. I guess it's better that they are being throughal, although the waiting & the unknown makes me crazy.

Went in the gym for an hour yesterday & back in the pool today for an hour. Continuing to work out is about the only thing still keeping me sane.

Thank you to all for the prayers & support!!!
I think one of the most wonderful words to ever hear in the English language is the word "benign." I so love that word, and am so happy for you, SB.

They are now looking at ten months for the next change. She also discussed some other health problems she has been having that has nothing to do with the cancer. (That is a hard word to type.) So he is going to call some of the experts in the fields she needs and have them take her right away. Her spirits are still up. And I guess that is all I can ask at this time.

Thank you all so much for the angels. I know they are watching over her.
Where is the happy dance emoticon? Addie, I am so happy to hear this--can't wait to go out and tell Harriet and Myrtle. I bet they know how to do the happy dance...

That's why I didn't think you would catch one wearing lederhosen.
