Hi Y'all!

It's Official!  The pathology report came back today.  The mass was
benign!  I feel like a lot of weight (wait?) has been lifted from me.

Virtual hugs to everyone!  I couldn't have managed these last few days
without your love, support, prayers and good vibes.  Thanks!

And to those of you who answered my plea for stories about "talking" with
your pets...the paper is done.  I turned it in tonight.  Please
understand that I found myself with so much great material it was
impossible to use everyone's contribution.  I used the stories that
seemed the best to illustrate points I was trying to make.  Nancy Taylor
has graciously agreed to put it up on her website in the near future.
We'll let you know when it'll be available if anyone wants to read it.

there's new fanfic to read all the time... so I thought it'd be fun!  This
