The Verdict

As my doctor predicted, the growth was in fact a fatty tumor, or a lipoma. PHEW! I had chosen not to get all crazy about the unknown, and luckily I was so preoccupied with how uncomfortable I was over the weekend, that I didn't have a whole lot of time to dwell on the "what ifs". Anyway, I am breathing a big sigh of relief tonight, and enjoying a lovely glass of pinot grigio before I head off to bed. Thank you all so much for your kind words, and for keeping me in your thoughts these past few days. It has meant a lot to me.

So glad to hear the verdict is the one we all wanted to hear, Heather. I felt it would be, but it's nice to have it official, isn't it?
Love, Aunt Jean

Good for you ~ not going down the road of what ifs. Its a bad road that I sometimes travel....glad for your good news!

Yahooo!!

I'm so glad - no matter your determination, I can imagine that it was a worrisome time for you.

I hope you're more comfortable now, and not having a lot of pain! If so...hit that pinot grigio again. ;)

What a load off your mind! It didn't sound like it would turn out badly but its must be a relief to know for sure.

So glad to hear all is well. So scary! Your mother must be breathing a big sigh of relief too having experienced the "worst case scenerio" first hand.
