news even better than 98%

so, everybody, guess what: bonnie talked to dr jones (the surgeon) today initially with the intent to address questions about sofie's pain medications. well, in the course of the conversation it comes out that 98% given as the kill rate for cancerous cells of the excised tumor was just the best number the pathologist could attach. turns out that NO cancerous cells could be identified. NONE! and the only cells that were identified as living couldn't be distinguished from normal cells! that, our friends, to us qualifies as miraculous. what say ye?

a big side note: a heartfelt farewell to megan who left jackson today on the shuttle for the slc airport. thanks for everything, megan!
