Happy Thanksgiving

Michelle flew home last night from college.  And boy are we going to celebrate.

She and I spent today at the clinic with a break at home for a quick lunch.

The tumor on her eyeball–the eye doctor’s description of it a year ago, not mine–that they’ve been keeping track of got finally laid to rest today as a simple small growth of cells leftover from her cataract surgery at age 7.  No tumor. Normal. Class dismissed.

The hematologist sent her to other departments for further testing.

No arteriole blood clot.  No bone marrow biopsy: no need now or hopefully ever.  Platelets high, but no cancer.  Class dismissed.
