Evidently, one of the first places a lymphoma can metastasize is to the mediastinum (breast bone) ~ Duncan's is clean!! They did an abdominal ultrasound to look for other enlarged lymph nodes;
they found one area in his spleen ~ did a fine needle biopsy... Of the five samples, only one showed a slightly increased # of lymphoblasts, which could be just a normal phenomenen... this is GREAT news!!
So even though it's a T cell lymphoma (not as responsive to chemo), it hasn't likely spread.

Hugs to you!
