the swollen lymph node (from however long ago) is still swollen but barely. i can still find it 'cause i know where to look, but i wouldn't find it by accident like i did before. i am assuming this is a good sign and that we needn't worry about it any more :)
docs' appointments on the 24th (one in the a.m., one in the p.m.), so i'll have confirmation by then.
