Here's the good news: I'm still alive after the surgery!!!
The bad: I met with the surgeon once I woke up, and she told me they biopsied a spot on my thymus (they couldn't get at the initial spot because of a major artery over it) but said it was a cluster of lymph nodes and they looked like Hodgkin's -- she said something like she's 90% sure.
My onc said he's "Concerned that it looks like Hodgkin's, but it's not over til the fat lady sings" but pretty much, I'm fairly sure that my gut feeling was right. My onc said he would call me when he has an answer, which he thinks will be about Tuesday.
Right now my throat is super sore, I have a headache, am super sleepy, and I sound like I chain smoked cigarettes with Courtney Love all day. HA!
Thanks for the happy thoughts everyone!!
