                        Thanks everyone. I know we aren't out of the woods yet but this is still amazing news!
                        Can anyone tell me what would be next for Steve. We don't meet with the Dr. until next Tuesday.
                        Dr. Einhorn mentioned to me that he would follow with surgery. Our Dr. hasn't mentioned that yet, unless he talks to us about that next week?????
