Hi Everybody. I cant write much here, I am home from the hospital,and very sore and tired. The good news is I do not have cancer. My ent got me opened up, started taking out stuff, sending stuff off to the lab, including my lump. The first results came up negitve for any cancer. Still she said she had to take out the lump, tissue, nerves, and some lympm nodes. Tuesday she called me at the hospital and there is no cancer in any of it. She asked the pathologist why my needle biopsy showed cancer cells. He said the begign tumor I have sloffs off cells that can make a false positve. I forget the name of the tumor but usually happens in people in their 30s. This is a miracle, so even if I had to go through this pain at least I am healthy.
Mary

    Hi Mary,

    Well you must be one happy and relieved lady !! Good for you. I was always concerned with your diagnosis from your first post ;

    "I have always felt fine and healthy. I have been a vegetariann for 10 yrs and then a vegan." (I asked 'Why would this person get cancer ??")

    Maybe it has really paid off. Anyway I am very happy for you.

    Oh, Mary!
    Your post has brought tears to my eyes. I've included you in my prayers every day for the last several days. Not that the prayers of a jaded old newsman tipped the balance in your favor, but there were a lot of other people out there pulling for you as well. It's so wonderful to know, once again, that prayer works.
    God has blessed you.

    Jealous and Happy
    But the happiness way outweighs the jealousy. This is fantastic news, Mary - you have been blessed, and I'm glad to know about it; very happy for you. Heal, and enjoy your family.

    Things happen for a reason
    Mary,

    Remember awhile back, you questioned why it was going to take soooo long to be operated on ? Over a month of mental strain and worry.

    Is it just a schedule back log or was it in God's hands to have this happen so close to Easter ? Only you will know for sure. Many Prayers have been sent out for you over this long time. I know that when I first got this cancer, I asked God if He didn't mind, I'd like to see my 1st grandson play baseball, he was only 5 months old at the time. I knew it was in His hands. My one Grandfather died 2 months after I was born. Was history about to repeat itself? I am still here and hopefully will be here to see my grandson play baseball in College. He starts Tee Ball in a few weeks : )

    The Sun is very bright here on the East Coast, or is that your smile that is making it so bright here.

    Enjoy your Easter with your family and a speedy recovery to you.

    My Best to You and Everyone Here

    thankyou everybody
    Thankyou all for your prayers. This has been such a miracle for me. It was all the prayers, even from myself, I hadnt prayed in years, but I did and so did so many people.
    My husband had come into my room after surgery and told me he talked to the doctor, he said the operation went shorter since they couldnt find cancer. I thought he had heard wrong until my doctor called me later. At that time she was still waiting for the final pathology. When she called me Tuesday afternoon I just kept saying are you 100% positive????? Even yesterday when she came into take out my drain, I said are you sure nothing was cancer in my neck? I have to get the name of the tumor I had, has a long name and I forgot it already. I guess because if the needle biopsy,she had to take alot of tissue out, since it takes time for the final. Now my left ear is numb and part of my upper chest, but thats ok. I am feeling pretty good today, throat is sore still.
    I will continue to pray for all of you, to heal and be cured,I will stay on here for awhile, maybe someone else will be like me and I can be a help to them.

    Wellll....
    You could go ahead and get a dose or two of chemo and a few radiation exposures bolted to the table if you realllly want to get the full effect...LOL...April Fools.

    Glad you have been spared the full course.
