Let’s get right to it: the needle biopsy of a lymph node under my arm showed no cancer. Normally that would be good news, but the doctors were skeptical that it would show anything from the beginning.

That means on Monday I should have a surgical biopsy where they take a whole lymph gland. Unfortunately the “brightest” one is near my aorta, but there are others that are more accessible.

I also had another plasma pheresis treatment today. They seem to be helping as I have regained some leg strength. Still need a walker and PT is coming to work with me tomorrow.

Other than that we’ll be hanging out by the pool soaking up some rays this weekend. Not. Anyway my goal is to preach Easter Sunday. Please pray that I’ll be able to do that. We have so many dear friends both near and in other places. We appreciate your cards, visits, prayers, and thoughts. As Paul said, “I thank God for you….”
