It Helps me to Write about This. . .

. . . but you don't have to read it.

There are a couple of things we're dealing with now.

The certainty and the uncertainty.

The certainty is that Judy has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

That's the good news.

The uncertainty is worse.

What will the tests at M. D. Anderson tell us? What stage is the cancer in? What will the treatment be? How long will it last? What's the prognosis? What can we expect?

So we're riding a roller coaster between the peaks of hope and terror. thanks again to all of you for caring.

Best wishes to you both. I just had an extremely large spleen removed & it had non-Hodgkins lymphoma, B-cell type. I'm still recuperating from my surgery, but a trip to the oncologist is looming. The doctors keep saying that lymphoma is the easiest type of cancer to treat. Good luck!
