Hope the pathology report comes back that way. That would be great news on top of great news.

The accommodations here are top notch.  No joke it's like an upscale hotel. I have a private suite. My husband is snoozing in the next room.  The pain is not so bad. Flat screen with movie menu plus a library of DVD's  in the Library. Stocked fridge with Soda and Kerug machine. I'm not sure if I spelled that right. Anyway most of my fears were needless. My blood pressure was up for a month! After surgery is blood pressure is back to my low normal. 117 over 70 I think. If you go to MSKCC try for the 19th floor. I'm watching White  House Down With Channing Tatum. They just brought me my breakfast menu. Just resting for a busy woman like me is heaven.

xxooo You guys really helped me cope with the fears of surgery and beyond. Ok new photo Ron.....a happy one.

YAY.. glad its over & out!!

funny to learn again that worrying is fruitless. My mother would tell me (I was such a worry-wart as a child) that worrying is an insult to God! LOL I am so far from that now.

Wow! Yes your suite, DVD players, coffee & Soda machine..Kewl!

But the movie White House Down is/was nonbelievable, except fun to watch Channing Tatum!

Continue good healing, glad you had robatic, and can't wait to hear the Path results.

Warmly, Jan

We've got to quote this and put it somewhere," Most of my fears were needless."  Nothing to it. Glad it was not difficult. Don't forget to tell that to the new people. As many say, "Now you are officially in the club." Take your time recovering and don't do to much. Keep thinking positive.

They say 'What can change in 24 hours - seemingly everything' it is like night and day. What a great transformation! Love the new pic! I am so glad everything went so well, and the possibility that it was benign too! 

Sounds like you have the creme dela creme of hospitals there, enjoy the rest and time to heal. Wonderful result!

Given the already good odds you have based on the Bosniak classification of your cysts, giving you a good shot of it being benigne, then the reaction you describe from

the doctors above should boost your optimism :-)

Thanks for asking Djinnie!! It was a blast! I went with 3 girlfriends and we had so much fun!! We saw Cirque de Soleil Love - it was terrific! One night we went to Gordon Ramsay's retaurant - delicious!! And Sunday night we saw the Eagles who outdid themselves. We got to lounge around the pool and bask in the sunshine surrounded by palm trees (and had 4 buckets of beer!) We had some great adventures and lots and lots of laughs. Then we came home to a snow storm, decided to drive through it (mistake) We spun out on the highway and a drive that would have taken us 3 hours took us 7 hours.  We want to go back with our husbands next year.

Hi Diana,

The Eagles were performing at MGM Grand in Vegas. We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel. It was a great place (a little bit off the Strip) and they have one of the best pool areas. (It caters to the youger partying crowd in the warmer weather). I don't think I would want to stay there then. There are some great places - you were planning on going in the next few months, right? The Monte Carlo is pretty popular. I hope you get to go!

HI Jojo,

I've stayed at The Hard Rock and at the MGM Grand.  I love Vegas. I saw the Eagles this summer.  It was a great show.  I think I'm going for business in March.

Sounds like you were bored rigid! Lol! I love Cirque de Soleil, we saw it when we lived in Texas, it was spectacular! Not quite so keen on Gordon Ramsey but his restaurants are top notch.
