I has a DATE!!!

I'll be having surgery May 26, contingent on the results from the bibopsy. My nutrition class & final pre-op appointment with Doc G are on May 13. THAT'S ONLY TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY!!!! And surgery will be 27 days from today!!! *happy dance!!!* I'm feeling such relief right now.

I did have my bibopsy today. Whoever scheduled it ASSumed that there was an error in the order and scheduled a standard fine needle biopsy. Nope, Doc G really did want a core sample, so we had to wait for a surgeon to be available to do the sampling. Four hours later... Anyway, it's done now, hurts like hell to cough and I have a bitchin' tickle in my throat. Results should be in on Monday or Tuesday.

The surgeon told me that "most biopsies come back benign, but I have to be honest and tell you that when it's a single nodule like this, and the size that it is, the risk is higher that it could be a malignancy." DON'T TELL ME THAT!!! Let me live in ignorance for the rest of the week and through the weekend!!! I told him that it'd better be something that Windex can clear up. (He actually got my stupid joke. Hehehe)

So right now I'm praying and sacrificing chickens to to voodoos that it comes back clear, or benign at worst. It's going to be a LOOOOONG wait until Monday/Tuesday. *deep breath* I'll have to work hard on getting my bedroom & closets organized, that should be plenty to keep me busy until then!
