Whatever you say,

does it really matter?

The results!

I just hung up the phone with the doctor and the conversation is as follows:

Me:  “Hello.”
Doc:  “Hello.  May I please speak to Michelle.”
Me:  “Speaking.”
Doc:  “This is ____from UCSF.  We have your results from your biopsy.”
Me:  “Ok.”
Doc:   “The biopsy showed cells highly suspicous for cancer.”  

I don’t think I heard what else she really said after that.  I finally tuned back in.

Me:  “So you are telling me I have cancer?”
Doc:  “Well, given your family history, it appears that it is highly likely.”
Me:  “It doesn’t surprise me.  I would be shocked if you told me it wasn’t cancer.”

The doctor proceeded to tell me about what the next step was….surgery and all that good stuff.

I hung up the phone and cried for a short while.  I will be fine I keep telling myself over and over again.  I will be fine.  My sisters were fine and I will be fine.  But I have different symptoms than they did.  I have lost 20 lbs, I haven’t been sleeping.  NO! NO!  Stop thinking like that.  I will be fine!  I will be fine!  At least this time I had the support of someone.  B was right there with me when the phone rang.  Thanks B!
