Home :)

Hi all~ the biopsy is over and I am home and feeling fine. Chris just put some coffee on for me and that is where I am headed :)
The results will be in either Friday or Monday and the nurse promised she would call me right away. The biopsy itself only took 5 or 10 minutes but those are 5 or 10 minutes I could have lived without. Kinda rough :( but I didn't throw up this time!
My doctor asked how many miles I am running and when I told her 14 she said she would rather have the biopsy than run 14 miles! I said " oh, not me, I would much rather be outside running those miles right now than be here"!
Depending on the results I will either be having a DNC as the next step on the 17th or a hysterectomy. If it is positive for cancer it will be an immediate hysterectomy. If it is pre-cancerous or no cancer it will be a DNC followed by a hysterectomy in December after the marathon. :)
We are remaining hopeful and ask for continued prayer over these next days for the results to show no cancer.
Thank you all, your support and prayers have been encouraging and felt by Chris and I. You are wonderful friends, family and prayer warriors! I will keep you posted...

Home is a good thing.

It is a biopsy I will never have but I think I'd rather do the miles too.

I hope to be cheering for you from afar this December as you run your first marathon. But in the meantime, prayers will suffice in place of cheers, I guess. Art

Love to Chris and everyone!!
