Our visit to MD Anderson Cancer Center was quite an experience. There are enough stories there, I'm sure, to fill a few hundred books.
But let me cut to the chase. When we saw the lead doctor on Judy's "team," he said that based on the results of the previous tests, "If it's what I hope and expect, it's very low grade, and highly treatable." I heaved a sigh of relief that you may have heard, even if you're in New England and California. I just hope that I'm not building myself up for a letdown, but I don't think so. He wouldn't say that just to kid me along. Right?
The bad news is that Judy will still have to undergo a series of pretty grueling tests, including a bone marrow biopsy and another biopsy of the lymph nodes in her neck. But we're both confident that she can get through the tests all right and that when we see the doctor again (currently on the schedule for July 11) that he will have the same good news for us.
I want to thank every one of you again for your support and concern. It's hard for me to express how much it's mean to us, but it's meant a lot. Trust me. And keep right on thinking those good thoughts for us. We need 'em.
