We Win the Lottery

Biopsy today. Hodgkins biopsy takes five days, but it is clear that the lymph nodes do not show Hodgkins. It's either a fungal infection or Sarcoidosis.

Bob got teary. The nurse said I looked as beautiful as I will ever look in my whole life.

Got to sleep off the anesthetic. I have a hellacious sore throat and I'm waiting for the Vicodin to kick in.

But I'm dancing.

MAUREEN -- YES I'M SHOUTING!!! I'M ECSTATIC!!!!

Man, Sarcoid so rocks. It's not at all uncommon among Hodgkins patients -- I'm so, so happy!! You'll go on prednisone, right?

Hmmm.....let's see. Another Maureen, over at the Hodgkins board went through the same thing -- the big scare, the SCT preparation -- and then it was Sarcoid! You should reach out to her. I'll see if I can dig up her info.

Wow. WOW. WOW. WOW!!

Can you tell I'm excited???? Tell Bob he's not the only one with tears in his eyes! :)

You, girl, are a cancer killin' MACHINE!

"Win the lottery"?

You won a lottery you hadn't known you'd entered; one you didn't know you were eligible for. The metaphor isn't strong enough for the reality.

What was the term in Dickens?
"Returned to life"? That's more like it.

Oh, hot damn. I am so happy for you. What the hell is Sarcoid, and how do you chase it away, and who cares anyway, cause it isn't Hodgkins?

Oh, man. I am glad.

Wonderful news, Maureen!

Mad, sarcoidosis is an auto-immune disease that makes internal body surfaces (lungs are classic) hard. It's something that can kill you, but usually is managed with immunosupressants. As Sarah says, it's a much better deal than Hodgkins.

I'm so happy for you. It's bizarre for a stranger to be happy for you when you're probably sick with some disease you'd never heard of 2 weeks ago, that's going to be unpleasant to treat...but there you go. Whee! There you go.

Best wishes,
Adrian
