Start/Stop

The title pretty much sums up how I feel about my life these days.

I get scary test results, everything stops.

Then Dr R tells me to keep going, that we will see how things are in another month, so I start living my life again.

During these "in between" times, it is actually pretty easy to keep my mind off the uncertainty of the future. My life is full and busy - especially in the summertime. So, the weeks speed by and before I know it, the time has come for another round of tests and the agonizing wait to find out what the results will mean.

Which is where we are again now.

(And I'm sorry I hadn't even updated the blog from last time!)

Today I had another ultrasound. This time with some positive results! The tech thinks that the cyst looks significantly smaller. Yay!! I'm not an doctor, but it sounds like a step in the right direction. I'll have my blood drawn on Saturday and find out the results in an appointment with Dr. R on Monday.

Meanwhile, I'm going to try to focus on all the good things going on right now - and post about them here! I never wanted this blog to just be about cancer. Especially since it is really such a relatively small piece of my life right now.

But as always, prayers are greatly appreciated. These tests and wait times are very stressful for me. I handle them a little less well each month it seems. I couldn't do it without the support I get from all of you!
