My thoughtful and kind husband was at the grocery store on his way home from work this evening. He picked up rotisserie chicken and sides for dinner for himself and the kids. I don’t have much of an appetite these days so I didn’t know what I wanted to eat. Not much is appealing to me.
He really surprised me when he came home with lobster bisque and saltine crackers. I must admit I didn’t know if I’d like it. Boy, was I mistaken! It is one of my very favorite soups now!! I have a feeling this may become a standard item hubby picks up for me. 🙂 I told him that he has good taste! 😉 This was a real step up from the standard chicken noodle soup I’ve had for the last week.
My future daughter-in-law picked me up this morning and drove me to my GYN appointment. During my ER visit last week, the CT scan showed a sizable fibroid tumor, so today was my follow-up regarding this new discovery. We were there for over two hours! It certainly was a comprehensive visit, I have to say!
First of all, I love my GYN doctor! The entire facility is very elegant and modern. The waiting area is set up with many groupings of comfy couches, chairs and coffee tables. It has an overall very relaxing feeling.
We discussed the options I have regarding the fibroid tumor and I think a hysterectomy is the best course of action, given my symptoms. It was great that they could do a sonogram right then as well. They also took some blood to run a genetic cancer screening test, which will determine whether or not she also removes my ovaries. Very interesting.
It was a great comfort to me having my future d-i-l by my side throughout the entire visit. My head was swimming with information, which she helped me recall later. She works in the ER at an area hospital and is a good person to have by your side. If we hadn’t bonded before, we have now! 😉 She’s wonderful! If I had to walk through all of this alone, it would’ve been far more daunting. I didn’t know I even needed or wanted someone to go with me. It never crossed my mind really, but when she offered yesterday, I quickly accepted. I’m so glad I did. She helped me raise questions to the doctor and just was an overall blessing to me. (I think my son chose well.) 🙂
Regarding my gall bladder issue, the next step is the Hida scan in about a week and a half. Depending on what that shows, we’ll see whether or not I will require surgery. Naturally, I hope not; but whatever the case may be, I just want to feel better! I just had another round of blood work done a couple days ago also, so the G.I. doctor will review that as well.
So, as soon as I get these “maintenance” issues taken care of, I’ll be good as new! It is a lot to face all at once but I am so thankful that the Lord always makes a way. He is a good and loving God who takes care of His children. I’m so thankful for that!
