They called to tell me the results
of my biopsy.
I missed the call.
They left a message with a number
to call back.
Their hours are 8-5, Mon. - Fri.
I called back at 4:15.
All the nurses had already left.
So now I have to wait until Monday.
(if theyíre open on MLK Day)
Otherwise, it will be Tuesday.
I would have been fine
if I thought the results werenít back yet.
But now that I know itís there
and I missed itÖ.
It is driving me crazy.
The hardest part
is keeping my fingers
off of this enormous hole
on the side of my nose.
That is really driving me crazy!
It doesnít hurt if left alone.
But it does have a sensation
that triggers a response
to rub it unaware.
That can be painful.
Now that Iíve had some time
to think on it,
Iíve decided that it is benign
because the nurse called me.
When Dennis got the news it was cancer,
the Doctor called him.
I got this.
Iím good to go for the weekend.
Remember, like they say-
Nose news is good news!

My people,
glad you could be here. However sure I am that it is benign, it would be nice to have the official word. It is early Sunday morning and so I shouldn't have to wait much longer. (Mon.)
I need a straight jacket to keep my hands off my nose! ARGGG! It is driving me. I'm a natural born picker and this is really going against my nature. Well, it's always somethin'
