8/7/06 Good News Du Jour

Family and Friends,

Although I received the pathology reports on Friday, the info was relayed by a physician filling in for my own pulmonologist, Dr. Lafor. Today Dr. Lafor called and gave me more information to give a better context to the results. Dr. Lafor informed me that over 95% of the time, with this type of cancer caught this early, that the cancer will not have spread. We like those odds!

I will have the PET scan Tuesday morning to find out for certain whether it has spread, and if so, to where. We should get the results from this test Wednesday or Thursday, and we will share the news with you ASAP!
