Thanks for the kind words Lillie. Yes I remember you from the PC board as I check that out daily. When my brother was diagnosed it was such a shock because he already has a serious disease that requires he get transfusions every three weeks, his entire life. This is a debilitating condition as well and was at one time fatal. However, transfusions have given him a good quality of life. THe doctor mentioned that the margins are pretty well defined - does that make sense and what does it mean? Doctor said this is an aggressive type of cancer.
