I've been away for a while.
Was in the hospital for a bit.
The news was both good and bad.
I am determined to enjoy this holiday season...no matter what!
The good news....the ovaries are not involved. To slow down the bleeding, a D and C was done, and a biopsy was taken. Bad news...my heart was beating erratically during surgery, so they had to insert a tube to help me breath. A 20 minute procedure ended up taking over two hours. My poor hubby and three daughters were VERY upset.
I won't get the biopsy results for almost two weeks!! The holiday will hold things up. The good news...whatever the results...I'll deal with it then, NOT until the reports come back!
I have a CT scan scheduled on my heart. The cardiologist is worried about blockage, and hardening of the arteries. I'm on Lipitor for high cholesterol now. Also, I was diagnosed with Diabetes. I prick my finger twice a day for now, and take meds twice a day. I can deal with that...AND the diet I am now on.
If the "abnormality" needs to be removed, a complete hysterectomy will be done, along with radiation if there is evidence of any surrounding tissue being involved.
The good news..if I hadn't bled so much, none of this would have been discovered...so I'm grateful for that.
The bad news..if this turns out to be the "C" word..my daughters won't do so well. They've already lost their Papa to cancer.
I will do whatever it takes to help them get through this.
So, that's where things are. I'm feeling okay, just very tired.
I'll be off from work at the pharmacy for a while. That's a good thing!!!
I plan to wrap gifts this afternoon, and just take it easy..cause I'm still bleeding, but not near as much.
Please keep my family in your prayers.
Love and hugs to you all.
