That's the best way I can find right now to describe how my husband, my daughter, and I are feeling. To make a long story short...my daughter and I went to a new OB/Gyn doctor about a month ago for some problems we've been having and we've both been undergoing various tests.
Most of my tests have come back fine with the exception of needing to have a surgical test called a hysteroscopy. Ugh! The doctor is leaning toward a benign (and hopefully simple) problem but it could also be a pre cancerous or cancer problem. Yikes! I have an appointment with her next week to find out more and schedule the next step.
Even more nerve-rackingly stressful is that my daughter's first round of tests revealed a large cyst that prompted the doctor to order more blood tests including ones for that dreaded "c" word, cancer. This doctor is great about sending us emails of the results on her office portal system. In fact, my daughter and I both had some blood tests done a week ago on Monday and I had my results on Tuesday. My daughter, however, has heard nothing. She keeps checking multiple times a day and nothing. Each day that we hear nothing adds a little more intensity to our stress level. She called today and found out that the doctor got the results back last Friday but is "waiting to go over them" with her. Yikes! We keep telling ourselves that it's probably all fine and that it's NOT the "c" word. After all, the doctor thinks she's just having a problem that is super common and that problem is non cancerous 99% of the time. The waiting and not knowing is hard! Talk about having a chance to practice positive thinking! My daughter's appointment is tomorrow. Now, we just have to hope that the jury duty she has this week and hasn't had to go in for will stay that way....she won't have to go in. Because, waiting another week will be torture!
Please send prayers, positive thoughts and keep your fingers crossed. We need all the positivity we can get! Now....to get on with the day and do things that will make the time pass quickly so we can get...what we're hoping for...GOOD news tomorrow!
