Cat’s radiologist reports that he saw no evidence of cancer on Cat’s M.R.I. She has some other stuff wrong that taken together presented exactly like cancer—but it’s not!

The stuff that is wrong can be fixed. We’re not even worried about it.

So we’re good!

If you read yesterday’s post (5 Words That Completely Explain Why Men Hate To Talk About Their Emotions), you’ll understand why, when it comes to expressing what the supportive thoughts and prayers of hope you sent to us meant to us, all I can do is ignore you, turn away, and turn on the TV.

About John Shore

More and more I'm communicating with my readers through my free (and ad-free) email newsletter, which is just a simple, direct and personal email from me that I send out every three weeks or so. If you would like to receive this email in your inbox, subscribe to it on my website, or by using the subscription box about halfway down the column on the right. I wouldn't think of using your email address for anything but my e-newsletter (to which you can always unsubscribe with the click of a button). Thanks, and looking forward to communicating with you in this more intimate way.

    Congratulations John and Cat

    I am so fantastically pleased for you.

    And thank you for all this better-than-all-get-out stuff I can always get from your blog, I LOVE it all. Keep on and keep it up and may it (as we say here in South Africa) always rain on your farm. (I don't know though – do agricultural metaphores work in America?)

    All my best wishes for both of you.
