I think that this period of waiting might be the most difficult I have experienced. My hands are often shaky, my heart pounds, every time I see my children and husband, I want to hold them oh-so-close.
My doctor actually moved right away on further testing. On Friday, Dec 2, I went in for xrays…for my lower back and looking at my kidneys/bladder/urinary tract. When I went to get that thing taken off my arm on Wednesday the 7th, she let me know that the xrays showed no sign of kidney stones. So, we can check that off the list. And the little thing on my arm turned out to be a fibroma…so that’s all good.
Yesterday I had a pelvic ultrasound done, and bloodwork that checks for certain cancer markers. Tomorrow I have a CT scan. And I will see her either on Monday or Tuesday of next week to go over the results.
As the days have gone by, the pain has increased…and it only adds to the fear of “what if?” I often open my Bible and look at the words that are penned in the beautiful Book of Psalms.
