I am so sorry it took me this long to reply. 

I had the spine bone biopsy (at a hospital here in Las Vegas) and then followed up with an EBUS (performed at UCSF Hospital) biopsy on my lungs. 

Both biopsies were negative for cancer.  

They diagnosed me with Sarcoidosis. I don't require any treatment. As you might recall, I was asymptomatic. It appears I am one of the rare cases (5% per my oncologist) where a PET SCAN shows a person likely to have stage 4 cancer and then doesn't. Obviously, my family and I are overjoyed, but I felt bad after the diagnosis coming on this site and spreading my good news (especially considering what other folks are going through). I didn't want to appear to be spiking the football, so to speak. 

Anyway, I want to SINCERELY thank all of you for your support during my darkest hours. It meant a lot. You guys kept me positive when no one else could even make me smile. I will forever remember your kindness and compassion.
