I Am Cancer-Free!!!

I just got a phone call from my surgeon saying the pathology report was in. The upper lobe cells in question were only inflamed, none of them cancer. My lymphnodes came out clear as well, and then Dr. Reid said those glorious words... I am CANCER-FREE!  My mom and I were ready to do cartwheels down the hall. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts, prayers, and well wishes. I have heard and felt them all.

Love,
Jamie
