Dave here. The doctor just called and the lymph nodes are clear! WooooooooHoo! The biopsy showed the left breast still had cancer cells as the doctor feared, but the mastectomy left plenty of margin. There were some benign lumps on the right side, but nothing malignant. So as far as they can tell, Julie is cancer-free! Praise the Lord!
Yes, we still face lots of treatment ahead, likely to include chemo to eradicate any lingering members of the vanquished vandal horde. But tonight we celebrate! Please celebrate with us and give thanks to God for his mercy and grace.
