    We 'did' get good news on our phone call, lo these 12 years and three weeks ago (but who'se counting).  My wife's surgeon called us at 5:30 on a Friday. He'd just gotten the pathology reports on what he'd taken outta the right breast, and the results of the sentinel node biopsy.  He called so late on Friday cause the results were SO good.  He got it ALL. Nothing on the sentinel node biopsy, either.  So after the mastectomy and 5 years of tamoxifen... she's still ok.  whoo hoo!!!!  

    We used lots of guided imagery, and prayer and the laying on of hands at our Lutheran church just before the operation, and shamanic healing stuff after, and lots of other 'non traditional' healing stuff... didn't care, as long as it had a chance of healing my wife physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  Michelle is a lot more non-traditional when it comes to healing and healing practices than I used to be. "i'm" a lot less traditonal on healing strategies than i used to be...  At this point, whatever works or worked is fine by us.

      Definitely worth getting a Friday evening phone call.

      I hear you about being willing to try anything, as long as it had a chance.... Healing happens on many levels and in many dimensions.

      Here's to many more multiples of 12 years with NED.

      Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
