My niece came out of her bone biopsy this morning. They removed a significant section of her tibia for analysis. The surgeon said that although the bone has a lesion, all tests this morning were coming up benign. The previous diagnosis was something called a false positive (hopefully I'm stating that correctly).
Folks, my family doesn't have this kind of luck.
I'm not sure what all of this means exactly but it sounds like she will be okay. Whatever this tumor is about (and its damage to the bone) seems to be a serious issue that will have to involve further surgery and monitoring - but it's benign.
My Irish Catholic side makes me far too cautious about good luck to shout for joy.
But I'm shouting on the inside.
Thank you for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers.
