Biopsy Results

All the biopsy results came back cancer-free!! They took out my entire thymus gland, and a piece of tissue behind it, which looked suspicious.  However, both came back cancer free!!
Next, I will be looking at a date to get my Mediport removed, normally a fairly routine operation.  And I think my next set of scans will be in October!

Thank you all for your prayers, encouragement and support.  We are truly blessed to have friends like you!

Science Lesson for Today- The Thymus
"The thymus is a specialized organ of the immune system. The thymus "educates" T-lymphocytes (T cells), which are critical cells of the immune system, which includes the lymphatic system.  The thymus is composed of two identical lobes and is located anatomically in front of the heart and behind the sternum ."
