This has been a very stressful week to say the least. Not too many people know..only close friends or clients that were in around the time I had my ct scan.
It came back that I had an enlarged adrenal gland.
Panic set in..and I had 7 days to go to my next test to take a "closer look"
A very tough week.
And it was spring break which was a blessing and a curse. I had taken the week off to have fun with Carter..but I was paralyzed with fear.
We read so much about the adrenal gland that I think we could write a thesis on the subject. Cancerous Adrenal tumors are said to be rare...but still you don't know till you know.
The days drug on until finally yesterday I had some more cocktails of Barium..and another scan. My knees shook with terror on the table..praying as I passed through the big donut..please no tumors.
Finally today I got the call from my doctor himself.. (I love him...he knows me so well and knew how worried I was)
When I answered his first words were "Good News"
I could have reached through that phone and hung onto him..I had no words other than through my sobs "its been a long week"
I actually do have a tumor (we had assumed that) These are incidentally found on ct's when looking for something else....but its benign and the radiologist said no follow up was even necessary.
I feel brand new today...very weak but elated!
And in the mailbox were my long awaited Labradorites!
So I am calling them my "Lucky Labs"!!!
It's a beautiful stone...Gray with flashes of Blue!
It's funny how when you think your life is over..clarity takes over and you can see things you need to do so clearly and the obstacles that were in the way... just vanish.
Something good always comes from the darkest moments in life.
Have a great weekend everyone..I know I will!
