Well, a follow-up appointment to the doctor gave some good news, some troubling, but overall not bad. One test we all suspected would be positive turned out negative (good), and the biopsy turned out to show “pre-cancer.” Which is terrifying, even though it’s only “pre.” (That’s like saying you’re “pre-mugged” and not feeling weird about it. Go ahead, try it, I dare you. *LOL*)
We’re still waiting to hear back from the pathologist on whether or not she needs to go in and do another biopsy, so fingers crossed. And now I’m on a six-month regimen of doctor appointments until they decide if they’ve caught everything or not.
Yes, it could have been a lot worse. I truly appreciate all the well-wishes I’ve received, it means a lot. And now to the finger wagging portion of my blog: when was the last time YOU went to the doctor? If you’ve been putting it off, go do it. No excuses. It’s better to catch something early than to put it off until it gets too serious to ignore.
