    No freakin' evidence of Melanoma. NED or whatever it's all good.

    The lower left lobectomy was a complete success.  The pathology is better than we had ever hoped for.  As we suspected the only need for the lobectomy was the damge caused to the airway by the tumor location.  There was evidence of necrosis and within a few months the tumor would have been gone, but their was also pneumonias collecting in the lower lobe and a swollen lymph node was putting pressure on the upper lobe.

    After surgery my blood oxygen maintained at or near 100%. 

    I'm at home a bit tired but Oh so Happy. 

    Bonnie Lea… it's time to DANCE.

      Dancin' in the moonlight……  yep Jerry you and me baby…our spouses can sit and watch, or we can do the 4 wheel jig? (dunno what I am saying)

      Since I never managed to figure out the "happy dance"  think some cabbage patch kid invented it, I have to do a slow 4 step or box step but in my heart, its JIVE YEP  (even with lobsters and drawn butter)

       

      Love Bonnie Lea

      That's wonderful to hear, Jerry.  I've been thinking of you  while you were at the hospital.  Bet you can't wait to get back on that bike of yours!  Soon.  :)  Meantime, rest and be good to yourself.

      Cheers,

      Jerry,  I am very happy for you.  I didn't lend you that term with expectations that I wan't it back, I'm hoping that more and more people borrow that baby in days to come.

      I'm jumping around (well kind of tottering with most of the weight on my right foot-due to brain damage) all 200lbs of me!

      Well, not really, but that is what is going on in my head.smiley
