Filling you in

Posted by Mandy at 6:11 PM
I sat on posting this or not over the past few weeks, and especially the past two days, but I finally decided that I can.

To make a long story short, an abnormal pap smear test result resulted in me going in on Tuesday for a more invasive exam. Unfortunately, the exam did reveal an area of "concern" that required a biopsy to be taken and sent off for further testing to see if it is cancerous or not. Thankfully, I am faithful with going to my OB/GYN yearly so we caught this (whatever it may be) very early. Even if it does come back as cancer, the hope is we got it so early that the biopsy itself took care of it. If further treatment is required... then we'll just cross that road when we get to it. No need to send myself into all of the potential "what ifs" just yet.

For now, my prayer is it comes back as a "false-positive" and I can go on with life as usual with simply having to go for pap smears every few months for a while.

I am nervous, but I know that whatever the outcome - God has me. He's got it under control now, he had it under control before I knew about it, and he'll have the future under control as well.

So, please pray for my peace of mind as I sit and wait for the results. Hopefully I'll know something next week. I will keep you all updated - but for now, I'm going to think positively that the worst is over.

We will be praying for you. But with it being caught early I'm sure even if it is worse then it won't be life threatening. But your post is pushing me to go get my yearly that I haven't had since either before or after my 2 year old was born. They use to not scare me but the older I get they do more so.

You are in my prayers, friend. May the Lord fill you with His peace and may you feel a calmness knowing that He knows all things and is in control of all things. He is our alfa and omega; our ever present comfort in trying times.

I've been through this my sister and my heart is with you.

Sorry I didn't comment on this one. I have been thinking of you, and praying that the test results will come back as nothing wrong. Have you heard anything yet?
