Praying for your friend, SIT and for you as well, because I am sure in some way, it is also affecting you!

Hey friends,
I am back home, and the surgery went well. The doctor thinks everything will be ok, and is pretty sure there is no melanoma present. They are biopsying what they removed today, which was a lot, and I should get the results in @ a week or so. I am so relieved!! I don't know why she thought otherwise before, but I am not going to even worry about that, just so happy right now. Thank you so much for your thoughts, prayers, and concern!!

The anesthesia has just about worn off, and I'm pretty darn sore! I'm going to eat dinner, take some pain meds, and lay down.


Thanks again for thinking of me.

Stacey
