Relaxed. I just finished reading the new Better Homes and Gardens and drinking my favorite pregnancy beverage-seltzer with a splash of cranberry juice and a lime. Yesterday’s appointment was a little unnerving for me. I didn’t sleep last night. In fact, I got up 3 am and started doing laundry and packing mine and Charis’s bags-just in case. It made me anxious, though I was thankful I was being transferred to triage care. However, today’s appointment was quite different. In the words of Olef, “All good things. All good things.” (We have seen Frozen a few times in this house.) So I’m finally able to just sit back and relax this afternoon.
The doctor today definitely agreed that I needed to be there for triage care “just in case” since my case is 1 in a million. But he didn’t act concerned at all. He went through all my records and met with us for quite a bit but really feels like this is nothing. He said, the blood flow to the mass was now almost nonexistent (more miracles-praise the Lord! and maybe this is why it appeared to be shrinking at the last 2 appointments.). He was very, very positive. I asked him what he thought my chances were of having to have a hysterectomy and his response, “1 in and 100.” I’m pretty sure I told him I loved him after that.
They are definitely preparing for unknowns. I’ll have a blood cycling team, 2-3 surgeons plus residents and fellows since this is a teaching hospital, and they will have a urologists, gyn oncologists, blood bank, and pelvic specialists on call just in case. But the doctor really thinks my chances are very, very low to have use any of these resources.
And Charis, is still doing peachy. Cute as ever! Just so excited to hold her in my arms!
I will be delivering at Emory Midtown now on May 9th instead of the 8th. That means Yeah Burger and Flying Biscuit deliveries to hospital!!
Thank you for the continued prayers. I can feel them. Mike and I pray Philipians 1:6 practically everyday, “being confident in this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on till the day of completion.” We can’t wait to see our miracle completed and hold Charis Joy!
