I just wanted to write and say that I understand that my worries and fears seem to be less warranted than most of the rest of you and I'm sorry if anything i'm saying is insensitive as I'm coming to terms with where I actually stand. I know that I'm extremely lucky to be given the current diagnosis.

Thank you jmn -- I really appreciate the well wishes and glad to hear your care at MSK are top notch. I'll keep in touch as we both seem to be in the NY area (Huntington here) I am feeling more positive each day that passes that this can and will be contained. In a few hours I will get the second opinion @ Mt. Sinai. Current hope is that after surgery (if recommended) that my Lymph nodes are deemed clear.

The wife and baby (en route) give me all the hope and strength I need to overcome the fears of surgery and the scary road ahead.
It sounds like we both found out very recently -- hope to hear good update on your end.
