yeah  I had my biopsy done on March 28th and got the results yesterday. All samples came back negative. The biopsy itself was a little uncomfortable but painless. I want to thank all who responded with information and support. I am taking a little vacation this upcoming week and will check in to lend any information and support that I can. Again thank you all again Bubba55

That is absolutely fantastic news.  Thanks for coming back and telling us.  You're the first one I can recall in the past 6 months who has done so.   Again, congratulations

So Glad Things Are Better

A message of hope by Emily Matthews


Sometimes the road

  seems dark and long,

  but suddenly, there’s light

To warm our hearts and let us know

  that things will be all right,

And in those golden, warming rays,

  we find the strength to cope

And emerge from times of trouble

  with a brand-new sense of hope


So glad that things are better

  and this stressful time

  is through ~

Here’s hoping

  this is just the start

  of better days for you.
