Got the results back from the CT scan of the lungs. There is only one nodule but it is 14mm in size. It does not show the signs of being malignant and the TB test came back negative. The doc does not want to do a needle biopsy at this time because the location is too close to my heart and so we will monitor and see if it grows at the end of November. No reason to become agressive when there is additional risks with it being so near the heart. Thanks all for you thoughts and prayers.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.

Congrats! I know that is a relief, scarey stuff isn't? I know I was so relieved when my doc called and said it did not look like cancer. She actually said it looked like pneumonia but since I didn't have any other signs we'd just see what happened and check it later. Woo! Glad to hear you got good news too!
