Post-op meeting update

The pathologist reported that the two cancerous tumors removed
from my left lung were intact with free margins. This means the
surgeon did not cut through either lesion, but got all of both.
There was no new indication of cancer in the left lung on the CT

The right lung showed slight growth in the tumors there, but it is
slow enough that there is no big hurry for surgery and I can wait
to fully recover from the left. We're likely looking at late March,
but no date was set.

Any time a cancer patient is told there is nothing particularly new
to report, there is a sigh of relief. Thank you, Lord.
