A correction

I thought I should correct my reporting of the pathology report, especially since corrected it is better than the way I reported it.  I said that 25% of the large tumor remained after chemo.  That is true but the rest of the report is that of that remaining tumor about 25% of the mass was actually still cancer.  The rest was dead tumor, um... stuff, whatever happens when cancer dies but does not disappear.  So really, the response to chemo was most, most excellent.  Just wanted to clarify.  The 2mm of cancer in the lymph node was properly reported.  OK, that's all...
