POLLYANNAISH



                                                             
I follow doctor's instructions, I make appointments, and I go to them feeling a little like Pollyanna.  Always hopeful.  "This is going to be ok.  It's going to be just fine.  It's a good thing I like this doctor..." that sort of thing.  

Today I had a CT scan layer by layer unveiled to both of us.  Two little blobs of emphysema.  A lymph node that was way too big, and two nodules all in the left lung.  At the very bottom were the many lines of the fibroids.

I have to tell you that I dread the biopsy that's upcoming.  I insisted that he put me to sleep.

Always hopeful.

  3. Oh Mage...
    I'm so sorry for all you're going through. I know the anxiety though. I have to go in for a CT scan of my brain next week along with my sinus cavities. Sigh...

  5. I am starting to head down your path with the lungs. Think I would want to be unconscious also. Hope you get some Pollyanna like results. Let us know.

  7. Prayers that the doctors can come to a conclusion that is good for all and will get you feeling well. It's no fun being sick and feeling poorly.

  Tidy, much more so now.     Thread is mixed in with the books as are pens and those ever useful measuring implements.   My desk is a bit...
