Dodging A Bullet

After the stoke in November, a suspicious spot was accidentally found on a CAT scan.  At the time nothing could be done.  After waiting four months, yesterday was my appointment with a team of oncologists.  I was prepared for them to want a biopsy, and it was right behind the breastbone (not an easy place to get at). Imagine my surprise when the team suggested I leave it alone!  With no other symptoms, it may have been there since my birth, and it's a cyst not a tumor! I guess I was more worried than I thought about it and with four more months of hoping it wasn't growing, what a relief!  A little more on left hand every day, but no strength yet.  Little steps....no handwork yet. I'm hopeful every day.
