i'm unremarkable!!

A few months ago, I discovered a lump on my neck. It was a lymph node that had grown and was palpable. I recently saw my primary care physician, who referred me to an ENT specialist because of my medical history.

He did an FNA (Fine Needle Aspiration) and it came back nondiagnostic. (That's doctorspeak for a biopsy that's inconclusive.) Then he sent me for a CT scan. Today, I got my results.

I'm "unremarkable." (That's doctorspeak for "everything's normal — or as normal as we can expect, given that we don't really know you.")

I can't tell you how good it feels to be unremarkable.

It feels great to have so many friends and loved ones who continue to support, inspire, nurture, and help transform me through my cancer odyssey. Thanks —I love all y'all remarkably unremarkable folk.

Raise the roof to being unremarkable! That's great news, Happy.

Hope my scans get the same reading (taking them next Friday).
