Path Report In

Postby juliej » Thu Jan 03, 2013 7:27 pm

It's official. The pathology report says the suspicious growth on my lung was a "necrotizing granuloma." The surgeon said, "'There was no cancer." :D

So if you're in NYC, I'm the fool you see walking around with an ear-to-ear grin. Now I just need to heal from the surgery.

Only in the cancer world could someone be so happy to have an unnecessary surgery.

And yes, those of you who know me too well, I'm at Rocco's having a cookie to celebrate! :D

Oh well about the surgery. This needed to be confirmed, so you can eat all the cookies you want, without the slightest doubt.
