I've gotten back my test results and the good news is that I don't have cancer.  The rest of the news is that....it's not cancer yet.  The result is that I will have to have a hysterectomy, but it is still uncertain as to how much will have to be removed.  The risk is minimal but to not have it could have severe results.  I'm not sure if I am taking this well or if I am still stunned.  I expected the results and prepared myself for the possiblities, but it still stings.

I have told my children and asked them not to worry, but I worry.  I have two teenagers at home and one of them has a 3 month old baby of her own.  Realistically I will need to have the surgery before school starts in August because of the 6 week recovery period, but I'm really not ready now.  In addition to this particular problem, I also have to have a mass removed from my breast that is non-malignant (Thank God) which would mean more sugery at another time.  I'm not sure if they will perform both of them at the same time, but then again I'm not sure that I would want them to because recovery would probably be harder.

Anyway, my absence from PIP has not been intentional.  It's just that I've had a lot of things on my mind.  I look forward to when I can put all of this behind me and no longer have to worry about my health and well being.  No, fear has no place here and I'm trying hard to stay strong for both myself and my kids.

Thank you for allowing me to share with you my pains and worries.

Dear Quatro.  You have come to the right corner.  I am sending you my love and prayers.  From the sound of your results so far, you have been in good hands with Jesus holding you.  Keep trusting and the fear will leave.  You will be in my prayers.  I am going on a week long vacation starting Monday but I will be thinking of you and looking for your reports.  love, Joyce

Quatro, I am glad to hear you are doing well! Welcome back to Passions. You will be in my prayers. But as this is more of an announcement than a poem, I'm going to move it to the Announcements and Links forum. Please continue to keep us updated!

quatro:  I'm sorry to hear about all your problems, but at least there is the good news that none of it is cancerous. I had a large mass removed from a breast a few years ago, which was non-malignant, and which I always felt was a result of prayers.  I had it done in same day surgery and it went quite well.  Took a week or so to be able to use my left arm well, but no problem after that.  That will probably be the same for you.  The hysterectomy will be the hardest.  I will pray for you and your family and please let us know how things turn out for you.

Love
Betty Lou

Thank you everyone for all your prayers.  You don't know how much that means to me.  I don't have a large circle of friends so I rely very much on my family and God.  It's good to be able to share things with others who show just as much care and compassion as my own family (if not more).  You will all be in my prayers as well.  God Bless you all.
