I'm back. I apologize that I spent the last week or so to myself. I've been reading all of the personal anecdotes and well-wishes... I haven't responded to everyone, but please be assured that I have read and appreciated ALL of it. I've also kept you all in my prayers. I'm so incredibly grateful to all of you for propping me up spiritually since I felt the world come out from under me physically.
My deepest, sincerest gratitude to each of you. If I could hug you all through the computer screen, I would. Since I can't, I figured another contest was in order. *Grin* Those are always fun and tend to make everyone happy. Win-win, right?
Anyway, I did go in for my test on Tuesday. I'm feeling much better physically, but I still don't really know what the prognosis is. I go in for another appointment this week (I have to schedule it on Monday morning). All in all, though, when I spoke to the doctor last, she held a positive outlook.
Optimism abounds. It seems that the general consensus is that I do, in fact, have cancerous cells. However, the consensus also seems to be that it's fairly simply to remove these puppies from where they've made themselves at home with minimal damage to the surrounding tissue.
Yay on all counts, right?
So I'm finally going to let off a little steam now that I've been reassured of some pretty positive news. Woo!
Thanks again for the prayers, everyone. I'll keep you updated a little better now that I don't feel I'm on pins and needles 24/7.
And if you haven't had your annual exam - GO SCHEDULE IT RIGHT NOW!!!
