The Waiting Room, Third Cuppa


Just heard from Digby again — Jane's oncological surgeon came out to give an update and seemed cautiously optimistic without actually committing to anything until the final pathology reports are in (you know the way that doctors do that update without actually giving you any solid answer but only a feeling, right?).  We've decided to go with the cautiously optimistic thoughts, because frankly that sounds awfully good about now.  The surgeon went back in to finish the work and then there was to be some further testing from there, but things appear, at least at this point, to be proceeding as well as we could hope under the circumstances.  Will update when I know something, in the meantime consider this an open thread.

Love you, Jane.

(For everyone else, Melissa Ethridge rocks — do click on the link above, but don't do so without tissues handy.  And for all the women out there, make sure you get your mammograms regularly.  Just called today to schedule my annual one.)
