Great Test Results

So just wanted to let everyone know that I am feeling so much better and received good news back from my last cardio and chest MRI. After my previous CAT scan (about one month ago) they found a mass that was behind the wall of my heart. Needless to say nobody wants to hear the word mass come out of your doctors mouth. It was very small but all docs thought that I should have a MRI done just to make sure it was nothing that needed further investigation. It took a week to get in to have the MRI and another week to get a call back with the results. It was a very long two weeks. Friday Dr. Hall called me and gave me good results. The mass was just some residual thymus gland (this is something that normally goes away when you are a child but mine did not). The thickness of the lining around my heart measured normal which was great news. There was just a little fluid that most likely has not totally cleared up from the pericarditis (but it will clear up). Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!!!!!!!!!!!
