Results are in!

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Saw the ENT to follow up the surgery. Surgery site looks good and I can talk again. The biopsy of the tongue and salivary gland came back clear. However the gland in my neck was positive for lymphoma. I'm going to need about 4 months of chemotherapy.

Things are moving fast now. I had an appointment with the oncologist scheduled for tomorrow but they are closing the office since we're getting a huge storm tonight. They called me this morning to move my appointment to Friday morning. I also have an appointment Friday afternoon with the GYN. I'm not expecting any problems there but they want a current exam, PAP and mammogram just to be sure there isn't any problem.

Once I see the oncologist I'll have a better idea what the action plan is going to be. I'm very blessed they found it this early and it is treatable. One of my friends was really upset and I ended up comforting her. I told her I was fortunate this happened the way it did. They found the lump and took it out. Now that we know what it is - we treat it! I'm expecting good outcomes and I am powered and protected by the prayers of all my friends. I want to thank all you for your support and prayers. As I know more , I'll keep you posted! God bless!

    I just went back to catch up on what has been going on. I am so happy they caught it and removed it. It sounds like the doctors are quite optimistic, too. I'll be thinking of you. Please continue to update!

    I must admit I'm pretty upset too. I wanted it to be nothing. Is it Hodgkin or non-Hodgkin lymphoma? You are in my prayers. emoticon
