Default Surgery went well

I've had a lot of irons in the fire, of late. No doubt about that.

I've had a lump under my jaw for some time; in fact, it's been there, albeit small, for 3 or 4 years. Last spring it started getting bigger, and in July I saw a specialist, who took a biopsy of it.

That turned out consistent with "normal" swelling, and was not malignant.

But it kept getting bigger, so I called the doc's office a couple of weeks ago. Long story short, he scheduled me to have it removed.

That happened yesterday, and while he did send it off for testing, he's still fairly sure it's not cancer. If it was cancer, it would have undoubtedly shown up somewhere else by now, since it was a lymph node.

Which is good, and gives me a lot of relief. I'll get the results of the tests next Friday.

I'm a little sore, and can't lift anything (per doc's instructions), which is very bad when you're moving to another state.

But at least the thing is gone, and we'll move on from here.
