Well I am back home from the hospital and a little sore, but not too much. The biopsy was a needle biopsy. Got there around 6am this morning, got into the assbackward gown and was taken into the cat scan room. was strapped pretty tight so that I could not move then run through the CT scanner, a mark was made on my upper left side chest. Stuff was put into my IV and I got a little woozy and it was all over in less than half an hour. The doctor said that the decision to do the biopsy now was so that we could get going while it was still tiny. Won't know anything for a few days, hopefully before the weekend. Was held there for three hours and then came home, fell asleep which was good as I did not sleep much last night. Big boy boots are on, blunderbuss in hand and ready to do my Elmer Fudd.

breath on this one. You are handling it better than I would have done. Biopsys are tough but lung biopsys must be tougher. Hope it's histoplasmosis or some nonsense like that?

Hang in there, I am hoping and praying for you.
