BREAKING NEWS!!!! (in the world of Lee Penn, that is)

Image on the left – small cropping from MRI imaging done in August.
I don’t think I have to tell folks what the light grey blob is – that there would be the tumor… My cancer.

Image on the right – small cropping from MRI imaging done last week – after three months of chemo therapy. It’s from the same part of my body as the left-hand image…. See the difference? Can you see it???? Uhm – not really! There’s still something there… but DANG it is small and its contrast is much less than cancer contrast (wording escapes my happily shocked brain at this moment)…. In other words – WE ARE MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION!!!!!

Deeeeeeeeeepppp breath.
I received the news with Cheryl… I’m so glad she went with me.
I now must return to work – TODAY IS NUTTY!!!!!
But, officially… TODAY IS A GOOD DAY.
