First off, I want to thank you for all the contact, comments, best wishes and prayers. I just got the card from the Eggheads at the Minifest. Pretty darn nice.

The best guess from the doc's is the tumor/mass was just under 35#.

The results are it was Edema & Lypoma and was bnign. :woohoo:

I will have to leave the drain tubes in the leg for 6 to 8 weeks and more antibiotics for 6 to 8 weeks.

I still have to deal with the atrial fibrillation and the healing of the surgery wound.

Wednesday and Thursday I was getting pretty nervous For now I couldn't be happier.

Again thanks everyone.

My best, Kent

    And when you are completely healed you can exclaim to your wife "You know, Honey, after all I've just been through I really deserve that Kimber I've had my eye on......"

    This is great news, Kent.
