Right...so the lump on my neck is going down. Thank you all for your concern.
I didn't want to get into "the lump" too deeply because the point of my previous log was to focus on the "what if's" part not the actual "lump" part. But I must say that this was kind of like playing "what if I'm pregnant"...it's interesting to face the "what if" when the possibility of the "what if" might actually happen. But just as when the "what if I am pregnant" doesn't pan out, I'm happy that the lump was just a "what if."
