Out of the Woods

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.

How wonderful Samantha! Glad to hear you are feeling fine. I also find it difficult sometimes to decide how much to put in my blog, some days I need to share more, and other days less. I go with my "gut feeling", but I believe it is always rewarding to share :)

Glad your results came back negative. We all know we'll have to face some positive results at some point in our lives, but ... please not NOW! In my family, we have a very complex "medical situation", which I hinted to in my blog because it's the largest chunk of my day and of our life. I do have an urge to blog more about it, to perhaps connect with someone in the same situation, but I'm not ready to share just with anyone as yet.
Have a nice hugging day!

I am very happy that everything came back the way you wanted it! And I hope your initial problem gets fixed, too. I will certainly keep you and yours {as I have been} in my prayers. You have been dealing with a lot, lately...sometimes it's good to let it out & get a pick me up from friends. I'll always listen...and/or read. :) xoxo
