Mood: Stunned 😯
I went back to my doctor’s office to review the results of my scans.
“Highly suspicious of melanoma, ultrasound guided biopsy needed”….
When you get news like this you don’t hear anything that is said after that horrible word…melanoma. Luckily I had Matt with me so he listened to my doctor while I started to cry.
She gave me a referral for a Breast Cancer Specialist at Gwinnett Medical Center…this is becoming all too real. She told me she was sorry as she walked out of the room. What more could she say?
I cried when she left Matt and I alone in the exam room….I cried all the way to the car. I knew it was going to be cancer, it’s hard to explain how I knew, but I did. Maybe it was because I hadn’t felt “right” for months, since right after Thanksgiving. My energy level had plummeted, I kept getting sick and I didn’t know why. I am the type of person to take care of myself last so I didn’t do anything about it, I just thought I needed more rest…I was wrong.
