First of all thank you SO much for the prayers and words of encouragement. I can't tell you how much it means to me. The situation is looking increasingly negative. I had my ultrasound yesterday. My doctor called me today. Based on the ultrasound, I have 3 'lesions' that are "abnormal". In addition, the radiologist recommended a full body CAT scan, with a special study of the groin and pelvic area. A chest x-ray. And a slew of assorted blood tests. I asked my doctor to be straight with me. She said "Best case scenario, you have some freaky lymph condition going on. Worst case scenario, we're looking at lymphoma. You'll see the surgeon and he will decide what to do after that". And then she said the word "oncologist". By this time my heart was pounding so hard, I was nearly passing out. My appointment is on Monday. I'm trying so hard to be brave. But, tears are spilling over all day. My husband and I decided that we needed to call our son out in Nebraska to let him know what is going on. That was such a hard decision. Some people suggested we not call him. Some felt it was his right to know. I hope I've done the right thing. If you've read to the end, bless your heart. I just needed to vent. Thanks for listening.
