Update on Life

We went back to the doctor yesterday to go over test results.  Whatever this mass/cyst/something is, it doesn't appear to be anything to panic about according to the doctor.  It could be anything from a benign cyst to the start of something serious, but at this point there's no way to be sure without doing something invasive. There's currently nothing to indicate the whateveritis is serious.  Kathy is still thinking about it, but she's leaning heavily on waiting and doing another MRI in six months and see how things look then.  She'll have to have the MRI anyway.  It's possible that this thing is the result of the hormones she's been on since her hysterectomy a year ago.  If that's the case, then it could shrink or (hopefully) go away altogether.  The doctor has taken her off hormones, and if it shrinks, that will be a good indication the hormones caused this thing in the first place.

Anyway, we're much more relaxed than we've been for the last few weeks.  I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support.  We've really appreciated them.


  1. Health scares suck ass. Glad it seems to be nothing serious. Let's hope and pray that pans out. :)

  2. Whoa. We'll keep you in our prayers!

  3. Thanks, guys. We appreciate the prayers and support. I'll let you know if anything changes.

  4. it changes your thinking forever, though. I'm glad that there seems to be nothing to worry about at the moment.

    1. Thank you. And you're definitely right, our thinking has been changed forever. Overall, that's a good thing.
