And the winner is....

Drum roll please....sarcoidosis. That is what they honestly thought they would find in the lymph node they removed from the start and they were correct. And he told me it was a big one, approximately 2-inches. The possibilities were lupus or some form of lymphoma. I never expected more cancer. Anyways, so now they will be able to figure out a course of medicine hopefully. I have 2 more nodes they will be watching to see if they respond to aforementioned meds, if not, out they will go. The headaches are being ugly still. Thanks God for drugs.
Mark tested negative for the blood clots, although the doppler showed 2 places that were questionable. Possibly pockets of infection. He is taking antibiotics and baby aspirin, wearing compression stockings and praying this will do the trick. He has agreed, it is stinky to get old. But the alternative is stinkier! :o)) 
I am dreaming of spring tulips, pansies and my quilt retreat in May. For now, I will try to watch the Olympic figure skating.
Thank you for all the sweet emails. I have been on the pc VERY VERY little.
