All is well! The physician confirmed that the parotid gland is clear of any malignancy and the lymph gland is likewise. Apparently the tests for the lymph took a long time resulting in the delay in the reporting. The physician's guess is that I had a stone in the parotid gland that caused an infection; he surmises from some other evidence that that the I passed the stone. I next see him on January 31 and it looks like no further treatment (surgery) will be required. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. They worked!!!
and thanks to all of you at ch.com who kept my father in your thoughts and prayers! Liz
