One Year Ago Today Part 3

Well it was this time last year that I was filled with more uncertainty than ever. One year ago today was a Thursday, I had an appointment that I was going to in order to "rule out" anything too serious... so we could schedule the removal of the the lump and get on with it... Well... instead I was taken through a Whirlwind of Tests. I was planning on this taking 30-45 minutes, stopping in on my way home from work and getting home in time to set up my Dove Chocolate party for that evening at my house. So after my Ultrasound and Mammogram, when they wanted to take me back for an immediate Biopsy, my positiveness was shaken. It didn't help that after the Mammogram they had me go into a "consult room" instead of just going out to the waiting room, and then I had to wait FOREVER for them to even tell me what was up and that there was something concerning them. Through the biopsy I think the Dr and Nurse was trying to keep the thoughts lighthearted, and it worked to a point, but it just didn't seem to fit in with the procedure to have them talking about their Weekend plans and I am laying there wondering what the results were going to turn out to be, as well as why they can't come up with a less annoying way to take the biopsy without needing to to slam a spring loaded needle into it... I guess it was better than going in for immediate surgery... but still!
I got home and lost myself in Chocolate. It was great that I didn't have to spend the night thinking about the maybe's and the What-if's although the biopsy made me pretty sore, I didn't really have the chance to dwell on it. The waiting begins....

Fast Forward...

Today I am a bit out of sorts, but overall there was nothing "wrong" with the day so I have nothing to complain or worry about. I am looking forward to moving on to the next phase. and I feel a sense of urgency to get there. I know it will happen sooner or later, but Patience has never really been one of my strong points. I will try to contain myself and wait for the next step. I am so happy to have wonderful Family and Friends to keep me positive! I love you all!

When Life gets Tough... Feed it Chocolate... Works for me! :)
