Vacation was fantastic! I'm now back and trying to catch up. I had been working really hard prior to the new symptoms to make sure I left for vacation ahead of schedule on things I needed to do, but that fell apart when I needed to do more research and squeeze in doctor appointments.

But I did manage to put work and medical things out of my mind for 6 days

Monday I have a biopsy and start the waiting game for the results. The odds are about 50-50 that it will be cancer. Again. But if it is cancer, it is likely to be the relatively benign kind I've already put in the rear view mirror.

I'll update once I know the results!
