Well, it has 97% recovery rate and the surgery/chemo has pretty low morbidity. So, I'd call it a good kind to have.
That said, I'll be quite happy/relieved if I find out I don't have it, but I'm feeling pretty confident that if I do, I'll be okay.
An oncologist fan of mine once told me that when you hear about cure rates of 97% and up, they're really 100%; people who die when they have something with that kind of cure rate don't die of it.
Still, I'd rather you turn out not to have it, too.

Well, I know some people die of thyroid cancer, even with really good care, since Rehnquist did. But the kind he had was very rare and I don't expect to hae it.
Happy birthday to Felicia! What are you guys doing to celebrate?
We're spending Friday night at the Who concert, and then at the St. Paul Hotel -- she's pretty happy about it.
