Weightless...

I was having a hard time getting to sleep last night. It dawned on me as the sky started to lighten that I was indeed a little nervous about the surgery today. A little sluggish, I made my way out to the hospital to get it done. Everyone at the hospital was extremely kind and made sure that I was as comfortable as I could be. The procedure didn't hurt very much and was over fairly quickly. I was curious about all the implements and activities. The hospital is like a hive of bees, busily working. Now that the biopsy is done, I have to wait until my follow-up visit on to find out the results and hopefully the course of treatment. My side is sore and the spot stings, but I feel less burdened. It's as though a weight I didn't even know was there was lifted. Answers, for good or for bad, are soon to be revealed.

Glad for you that the first part (and hopefully last) is over. So what plans do you have for your birthday? Yummy food I'm sure… We share our wedding anniversary with your birthday, so I will make sure to say a little extra something for you silently before enjoying dinner (Sushi?)...

I guess we ended up with a Self Portrait Friday after all. That's a surprisingly reassuring shot, I like it very much.

Hang in there. I have had several biopsies at the dermatologist office, and I agree that the waiting for the lab results is unnerving. Sending my thoughts and prayers your way.

Happy Belated Birthday, Andrew! I wish the best for you. It is very likely that the lump is benign and nothing harmful. I know it is very scary, though. I have gone through similar situations with 2 lumps found in my breast. Luckily, they are benign and I am fine. I hope the same is true in your case! Take care of yourself! :)
