Good news today

Postby Cowgirl918 » Mon Feb 22, 2016 10:04 pm

Today my doc called with the long awaited pathology report from my EMR 1 1/2 weeks ago. There was no evidence of cancer found in the 80% of the mass that was removed. :D I feel very blessed and very lucky. Needless to say my family and friends are over the moon. I have another surgery already scheduled for August and I intend to enjoy EVERY minute until then. I realize that each time I go in we start over and the odds are not in my favor. BUTT, today I have more time. Thanks to everyone for their support. I intend to stay here if only to support others. More updates in August and with a little more luck, not before. As we say in my world, "COWGIRL UP".
