Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts. We are SO relieved.
been there and know the relief......

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Me too.
Years ago, my dad's lung cancer was caught very early--a shadow was seen on an x-ray. He had a biopsy and immediate right upper lobectomy. Since it was caught so soon, he didn't need any chemo or radiation. He was very lucky. He lived a very long time after that as well.

This is truly a Christmas miracle. Hold close to your loved ones.

I am so happy for you and your family, ChefJune.

Time is what keeps everything from happening all at once.
