I could sure use some prayers and good thoughts.

I've had an enlarged lymph node on my neck for the past month or so. My doc thought it might be due to some dental work I was having done, but the work is finished and the lump is still there. I go for a CT scan on Monday, and depending on the results, may need a biopsy. We're hoping it's not tongue or throat cancer, since they're both 'silent' and don't have many symptoms until the lymph nodes are involved.

Getting older sure is an adventure.

From the questions she asked, and the look on her face, it was obvious. We had discussed it at the previous visit, last month, when we decided to wait a little bit to see if it went away. It's still there, and if it were an infection, it should have been gone. She's also the one that mentioned a biopsy, pending the results of the scan. She might have been covering her bases, as they all mention the next step, just so there are no surprises.

I truly appreciate all the prayers and good thoughts.

Sending you lots of prayers every night Jan and good thoughts. Quit looking on the interternet my friend to see what things like this could be. It only scares you and is almost always not what you think. Yep getting older is an adventure for sure.Love Mare
