Update

Posted by Mandy at 7:46 AM
I talked to my doctor's office this week, and just now have a minute to let you all know what the biopsy results are.

To put it simply, I have exactly what they thought. "Mild dysplasia." Results can come back as:

Normal
Low Dysplasia
Mild Dysplasia
High Dysplasia
Cancer

So, praise God we got it before it turned into "high dysplasia" or cancer. It can go from mild to high or cancer in a matter of months if left untreated, so I am extremely thankful that God put it in my head that it was important to be seen.

It's not great news, but isn't horrible news, either. Great news would have been for it to be normal. The hope is that he got all of the abnormal cells with the original biopsy. Time will tell. I go back in 4 months for another pap and I pray that it will be normal. If it is not normal (is the same or worse) then more evasive procedures will have to be done to remove more tissue. So, for now, the plan is to simply wait, be rechecked, and pray that a normal result follows. I will let you know!

To change the subject, please visit Shelley's blog to read about Baby Brooks that was born prematurely. He and his family need our prayers.
