IT'S NOT CANCER!
My mother had a needle biopsy this morning on the silver dollar-sized lesion in her lung. The doctors were fairly certain that it was lung cancer, even though she is not a smoker. The doctors were prepared to perform radio frequency ablation if the tissue tested positive for cancer, so boy were they surprised when the tests were negative! The samples will still have to go through pathology, but the doctors are now 95% certain that it's not cancer. With 3 blockages she still has a serious heart condition, but this is a huge relief.
If all goes well, she might be going back to her home Sunday or Monday. I told her I'd be happy to spend those first few days with her.
Thank you to everyone who kept her in your prayers.
