Today we received the best bad news yet -- the results are in from my PET/CT scan yesterday. My doctor called me to tell me that the only place that showed "positive" on the scans was the one we had questioned in my neck. He said the surgeon's office will call to schedule an appointment either tomorrow or Monday.
The good news is that we don't have to worry about any large-spread cancer or multiple/more complicated surgeries. This still doesn't change my prognosis or plan -- it just means I'll have another surgery, which will probably happen in the next couple of weeks.
Ta-da! Only good news from here on out...
