A View From the Edge, and Back


The biopsy report came back from the pathologist today. The tumor was invasive but NOT malignant. Surgery over, no further treatment is required other than to just take it easy for a few more weeks.

I can't thank everyone enough for their prayers. Somewhere up north the sun is shining and my guardian angel will be resting a little easier after his mission today is done.

I hope you'll pass on our collected gratitude for everything they've done to all the health care professionals who took care of you. They've done well.

Tonight, a Guinness in their honor.

Great news and it must be comforting to have so many people care about you. And I'm guessing a high percentage have never met you in person. Speaks to your talent to be able to touch people with the written word.
