    Biopsy: It seems I forgot to update y'all!

    Biopsy results are negative.....I don't have cancer. I do have Lupus, though. Means I need to wear long sleeves, etc, and will have some issues, still, but all in all, it's manageable.

    Acceptable news, Tom. I'd say good aside from the Lupus.

    I'm sure I could wiki it, but why do you need to wear long sleeves if you have Lupus? More importantly, will it keep you from riding?

    I'm sorry, but this needs to be done.



    That said, I hope you do well with the treatments, and anything that doesn't kill you... lets you keep living!

    UV triggers Lupus symptoms.

    Depending on the type Lupus is nothing to take too lightly.

    I can't say I feel good about you having that, but it sure beats cancer any day, and for that, I must say - you are lucky! You will be up and running again in no time, take care of yourself!

    So far, joint pain and recurring respiratory issues.

    That's a bummer. Thoughts are with you, as it can't be too much fun to get that kind of news.

    I hope your good times are good and long and free from aggravation.

    Tom,
    Glad to hear you avoided the cancer. My thoughts will be with you as you work through the other.
