Well – at least for tonight.
I have got a lump in my breast, two polyps on my cervix and I am officially refusing to worry.
Today I went for my prenatal checkup and discovered those little nuggets of fun! So slate me in for another ultrasound and an appointment with a gynecologist. (Here in Canada most of us only see GPs for our prenatal care.) Good grief – I am going to be on a first name basis with the hospital staff soon!
Since I am still counting down the hours till my ultrasound on Friday to check in on my baby, my plate is full enough of worry. So when my doctor served up the wonderful news about the lump and the polyps, I decided I was too tired to give it too much thought.
I have been worrying for weeks about my baby – and I am exhausted. It gets me no where – just keep me awake at night.
“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” Matthew 6:27
So while Susan instantly goes into “You have cancer!” mode when I mention the word lump, (poor thing – she isn’t exactly an optimist!) I am refusing to give in to my fears. It is just a lump – right? I am only 33 – right? And – while I fervently pray all is ok – really there is nothing worrying will accomplish.
And frankly tonight I am just too tired to worry anyway.
Update: I was able to extend my ultrasound appointment for tomorrow to include both my baby and my breast. I will definitely let you know how it all goes. Thank you all so much for encouragement. It was so great to get up this morning and read all your wonderful comments! I am so blessed to have you in my corner!
Due to our site crashing – I have lost all 30 of your beautiful comments!!! Fortunately I had just finished reading them all – so I don’t think I missed any. I am so sorry!
