It is not cancer.

Just wanted to post this for all of you that have been so understanding and supportive these past 2 years.
I just got back from Emory, tumors are benign angiomas and I have atypical pneumonia and something called BOOP. The pneumonia is something that will take a long time to get over, and I must have my liver checked by MRI every 3 months. He wants to keep a close eye on the tumors because there is an increased risk of them developing into malignant cancer. That pneumonia is something that also causes a lot of my symptoms. I still cannot drive, due to the epilepsy and must remain on the liver medications. There is still a question regarding the lump in my breast, but for now at least it is not what they thought it was, neuro-endocrine cell cancer.
Thank you for everything!

Wow, went to my blog and yours was the top update. That sounds like good news for you, you'll be in my thoughts for good things to continue for you. Pneumonia is not great though, you really need to take it easy. So staying at home being creative. keeping up with blogs and forum chats should be perfect for you! Take care of yourself, Kimberly
