Sorry I Have Been Quiet

Sorry I have quiet the last couple of weeks. At first I became really busy with a school project on Climate Control (yuck). I really do not mind the subject it is the project that I did not like.

So I finished what I needed to for my project and thought I would spend last weekend playing since I had four days off. My plans were put to rest after a visit to my doctor. Last Friday I went in for my yearly physical and a "growth" was discovered "down there". My life was frozen last week. Since the appointment was on a Friday I knew I had to wait at least until Monday to hear anything.

It has been a week of an emotional roller coaster ride. I played almost every scenario in my head this week. Today I was back at the doctors. It is a growth that will need to be removed. I am waiting on the biopsy to come back to see if it is the big "C" word. My "new doctor" told me that she does not think it is, it does not look like what she has seen of cancer, but a biopsy was preformed just to be sure.

I am told that the growth is probably a fibroid tumor. Wednesday I will have an ultrasound to see how large my tumor is. Friday I go back to my "new doctor" to see what needs to be done. She has prepped me though for a hysterectomy. Yes, 33 and a hysterectomy.

Anyhow, I am sure I will be quiet in the coming weeks. Maybe new posts, but I am not sure if I will have many new cards to show off.

OMG! I feel your pain. My mom went through something very similar. You & your family are in my thoughts & prayers. Hang in there and take each day as it comes. That is all you can do.
