Well, after some very scary moments - I can stand here and thank everyone for their prayers and thank our most Merciful God in Heaven for His loving kindness, mercy and grace to hear our prayers!
I am going to confession next Wednesday. I can't wait to go. . . and thanks be to God for His strength and mercy, because I so have none - especially when denial is involved. . . or rationalizing something so not good. He is good. He is so very good.
I was supposed to have had a biopsy done last Wednesday, but my doctor was afraid it was too dangerous to do in an office setting and elected to do it in the hospital last Thursday. When she was done, she told both my husband and I that she had not seen anything as bad as that before and fully expected it to be cancerous. She said that she would let us know Friday at the latest as she knew we would want to know as soon as possible.
Well, Friday came and went. Today, I called to see if the report had come in - she called me a little later and told me that the biopsy was benign. She said that she fully expected it to come back as cancer. She said both she and the pathologist expected this as the pathologist agreed that the tissue looked awfully bad. She said the pathologist ran every bit of tissue and did not find any cancer cells. He ran the test several times and still didn't find any cancer cells.
She said that I still need to have a hysterectomy - and would prefer to have an oncologist do the surgery just to 'make sure' as she has never seen anything so bad come out so . . .clean.
She also thinks that perhaps the CML Leukemia test will come out negative (I have that result Wednesday) as she thinks my WBC was high due to this uterine issue.
So. . .thank you so much for your prayers!! Thanks be to God!! He is such an awesome God!!
