Well, after waiting all the live long day to get the results of my sentinel lymph node biopsy, I finally talked to my surgeon's nurse at 4:57PM. The good news is that the biopsy was clean of cancer and so were the margins from the portion of my ear that was removed!! So I'm good!
Now I just need to get down to the business of letting my ear and neck heal and being very careful not to get melanoma again. (since that is more likely now.)
Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes!
Boy am I ever glad that's over! Whew!
