Finally Some Good News!!!

Went to see Dr. W. today. I just love her to pieces. There's just something about seeing the one who delivered one of your children when you're dealing with something scary like this.

There was 1 area that was abnormal. Lucky for me, Dr. W. uses a local anesthesia to numb the area before she biopsies (my other doc didn't do it, which is why it hurt SO BAD last time. She said it didn't look bad to her AT ALL, and while I was numb, she could just go ahead and take the whole area off with the pinchy thingies she uses for biopsies. So, it's ALL GONE.

I asked her what the chances were of the lab results coming back as cancer, and she said in her opinion, they were ZERO!!! Plus, I'm still young enough that they aren't in a rush to do any additional treatment on me. No LEEP or anything like that until I turn 28, lol. So, I have just over a year for this to stay gone on it's own before they will want to do more if it happens again. I go back in 6 months for a repeat pap and colp, but I'm not NEARLY as scared about it anymore.

Holy cow am I sore. Driving or sitting for long periods of time (more than 15 minutes) is more than I can handle... But, as long as I'm up and moving around, I feel better. Which is why my mom and I went shopping this afternoon for new (happy) celebratory summer clothes, LOL.

Praise GOD, the power of prayer, and a HUGE support network.

I should have final labs back later this week or early next, but if Dr. W. isn't worried, I won't be worried either :)
