Journal entry by Heidi Hoskins

Passover, Day 5- Dyanu!


Got the results from the biopsy back. THERE IS NO CANCER! 

It’s gone.

I am in its wake with a fractured spine, unable to stand up straight, or support my own weight. But guess what? I have time to deal with it. Next week, the tumor board will meet to discuss my next step. In the mean time, Dr. Shuster (a Penn neurosurgeon) will reach out to me.

I can’t believe it. It looks like I’m getting a 3rd act. Or is it a 4th act? Whatever it is, it’s enough! Dyanu!

Art, Steve, when can we start playing? Nice weather is coming and Bill will clean off the porch!

I love you  my friends. My family. My precious husband and children. Love you all. You are my village.
