I just got back in from the biopsy. It hurt pretty good. All went reasonably very well, considering everything that could have gone wrong with every stage of the trip, not to mention everything that DID go wrong with the last biopsy attempt.

Read all about the procedure by clicking here.

I have to avoid anything strenuous for the next 24-hours. Apparently, driving a needle deep into your chest near your spine can occasionally be harmful.

I asked the doctor what could happen if I did anything strenuous, since, you know, other than some painful swelling on my back, I feel pretty good. He said "internal bleeding."

This is me, on the couch.

I'll be posting again this evening, after some (much-deserved, in my humble opinion) rest. Just thought you should know I'm alive.

Thanks, God.

Nothing strenuous, eh? I imagine you don't want to deflate like one of those inflatable weeble dolls.

Glad to hear you're doing good, Dan. So, uh, we can all start abusing you again, right?

Sure, but you better hurry - chemotherapy starts soon, and no abuse you guys can give can touch that stuff!
