Teeth are gritted

I just had a call from the hospital, regarding the biopsy they took on Friday. At the time, they told me that they were 99.9% sure it wasn’t a cancer.

She tells me that they need to run more tests, the results of which I will get on Thursday at yet another appointment. She says it isn’t necessarily another cancer, just that they need to be sure.

I’m still doing well emotionally, but it is exhausting not knowing exactly what is going on. I also worry sometimes that they haven’t found it all, but speculation will get me nowhere.

So- the Positive Thinking Tree is getting a bit of a shake today. It’s a good thing it has deep roots! 😀

    The waiting and waiting has to be the toughest thing right now. You don’t really know what you have to deal with until you get some answers.

    You have sounded like a pretty strong person up to this point. Hang in there!

    Try to think of it this way: the more the Positive Thinking Tree gets shaken, the more positive vibes fall from its branches 🙂

    We’re all hoping for good news for you on Thursday, sending our best from New Zealand. All the very best Sooz!

    Ugh, how frustrating. It must be a strain just waiting and wondering what will happen. But as Skry says, there are positive vibes falling all round you at the moment!

    Hi Suzy. Couldn’t quite believe your news when Aidan told me. Has definately made me think twice before moaning about trivial things. (Aidan will be happy!)
    First time I have seen pictures of your two boys. You certainly have alot to remain positive for! I’ll be hoping and praying for good news on Thursday. Just remember, if you can survive going to work every day listening to a bunch of moaning men, you can get through this!!

    Hi Pamela! You’re quite right. If I can live with this lot for all these years, kicking cancer will be simple! 😀 Only kidding, the guys have been great. Your husband has spent a LOT of time listening to me complain over the years!!! Clearly, that isn’t going to stop any time soon, but he’s very patient!

    Suzy, this may be the first of a few bumps in results and tests, it’s all for the good so that when you start treatment you are going forward all the way. The positive thinking had a bit of a rough ride yesterday bet its stronger than ever today, all the very best for tomorrow, Leigh xx

    Agreed with MTAE, the waiting sucks – hopefully you’ll get news that’s good enough to make the wait worthwhile!
