Oh wait…. 🙂
Seriously I am starting to think I might just be a loon. It helps me feel less anxious and destress, probably because it gives me something else to concentrate on.
I really liked the Doctor. Very professional, but very friendly and personable. The office is amazing!
Seriously, they have cookies! Not that I ate any. My body was just one big ball of nervous. I felt so much better after the exam was done. He did two cervical and one uterine biopsy. That really is just as much fun as it sounds. Lots of ibuprofen today.
I bet you were scared I was going to show you pictures of that, weren’t you? After the exam I had my blood drawn and then Corey and I sat at the little Cafe’ section of the waiting room until it was time to consult with the doctor.
I swear I expected someone in a black apron to come ask me if I cared for a latte.
Had a good conversation with the doctor. I should be getting the biopsy results within the next 3-5 business days, but based solely on what he could see it looks very promising. I have an appointment tomorrow for a cat scan to look for any spreading into the abdomen or lungs. Based on the results of that, plus the biopsy we’ll determine what kind of surgery I need. Best case scenario there will be minor surgery and we’re done. No further treatment. Mostly likely though there will be a slightly less minor surgery but still no further treatment. I really couldn’t have asked for better in the hopeful news section today. I’m still ready to deal with the worst but now I’m not quite so positive that it will be the worst!
It’s been a lifesaver and anxiety saver for me the last few days to read all of your comments both public and private, here, and on facebook. It’s amazing what a different it can make. I hope none of you ever have to deal with anything more severe than a cold, but if you do I hope I can be at least close to as supportive as you all have been.
Keep fighting the good fight guys.
