Hello all of you oldtimers and you newbies. I know, I have been away a long time. But it took that long for me to get better. My depression is well under control, my thyroid is finally at normal levels, my strength is returning and I feel great. There is only one hitch. I found a mass on Sunday last on the chest wall, right above where the original tumor was. It did not receive any radiation or surgery. Dr. Kleinman, my surgeon, said it might be a lymph node. Anyway, I'm scheduled for excision of it on July 2nd. But I have already been visualizing - knights dressed in white with white lancets and on white horses chasing after all the bugaboos. I also have some friends and relatives who have already started prayer circles. So, I know I will be okay. I'm just concerned about all of you. How are you? What have you been doing?
