I just got an updated email from my oncologist this evening (yes, I feel very lucky to have an awesome team of doctors taking care of me already), I let my doctor's email explain...
"Joelle, the results are in, and as I was hoping, it's "mediastinal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma". This is the best of all the possibilities in terms of both the treatment and the curability."
Mediastinal diffuse large B-cell lymphomas have very good initial curability rates (in the 80% and over), so we are celebrating at my house today! :) We will be seeing the oncologist tomorrow to come up with the official plan and hear more details (stage info, what type of treatment and for how long, when to start chemo, etc). While I'm still googling (of course), and processing the news - this is about the best possible news we could have received today! We had hugs all around, and there's big smiles. I might even stay awake for a bit tonight instead of crashing with these pain meds.
Good night friends, thanks for all your support!
