My heartfelt "thank you!" to all those who offered prayers on my behalf for this morning's test.
It seems that the result of the pre-test was a false positive, and I'm perfectly fine. So fine that there's no need to discuss any subsequent testing, in fact.
I have no desire whatsoever to put myself through that again, anyway, so my relief is palpable.
Afterward, my beautiful wife and I went out to the Bear Mountain Grill for a ham and cheese omelet, hash browns, and hot buttered toast with strawberry jam. And two large cups of coffee with cream.
Of course, that was just me. She had her own meal, somewhat less, um, hearty than mine. Of course, I hadn't eaten since Wednesday evening, and felt rather hollow. :)
I'm back home, healthy, hanging out in our beautiful home in the woods. There's snow on the ground, and it's only two days until Christmas.
Life is good.
