I wasn't sure whether to publish this post, as I didn't know how personal I should get on this blog, but since I have already made some wonderful new friends through here, I actually feel safe in doing so.
I have had somewhat of a health scare recently, but Friday was a wonderful day, as I got my results back and everything is ok.
This starts back to about 3 months ago when I went to my doctor about a niggling issue I had. I just thought it would be a case of making an appointment with my GP, getting a prescription, walking out and carrying on with the rest of my life, like what mostly happens. But it was obviously something more serious (or appeared to be), so I was referred to a specialist at the hospital, who then made an appointment at the Colposcopy Unit, who then took a biopsy, and then I waited an agonising 4 weeks for the results. By this time I was hoping for the best but bracing myself for the worst; every scenario going through my mind. I am a worrier by nature, so under these circumstances I felt like I had been living in the twilight zone this last month. Not a minute went by when this huge burden was not on my mind, and on my back.
However the results came back very positive (or I should say negative in terms of medical results). I do still have the initial problem which will be something I will have to live with for the rest of my life, but it can be managed, and with regular check-ups I should be fine.
So now I am going to spend precious time with my children. Hug them tighter, play with them longer and enjoy every second of it.
