Tommorrow's THE day.....

Well I just got home from all the silly pre-op tests. And the doctor's office for final pre-surgery results...sigh..........
Here is my new big medical term to learn.....
"HIGH GRADE SQUAMOUS INTRAEPITHIAL LESION"
Why can't they just use english.?
So tommorrow I will be joining you all in the land of hyster....sigh..
Right now I am just numb..wish I had had more time to think about this but oh well, it is now written in ink ( with my good contract signing pen no less!!)
Strange how different I felt once I actually read my chart and actually SAW the word "CANCER"...
Now I know in my heart it must be done and there is no other way...
So I pack my bags to begin my journey today...
Many new friends I hope to meet....
As I stumble along the way.....
This time tommorrow a new
"PUNCTURED PRINCESS"
I'll Be.......

Hi Barbara!

You will miss something each of us dread, the WAITING. Put your self in your 's capable hands and he/she will put themselves in God's care. I have loved everyday of my life but the last 6 months have been extra special because I no longer have pain/bleeding for 3 weeks out of 4. God Bless and my are with you. See you on the other side where you will become that pampered .

Hang in there Barbara! You'll be resting on your Princess sofa, with your shiny new crown, before you know it.

Here's some info for you on "HGSIL, which stands for high grade squamous intraepithelial lesion":

A great "Glossary of Terms Used in Reporting Gynecological Cytology Results":

Images of HGSIL cells (microscopic):

Just before my roommate at the castle was released (hyst for possible cancer/precancer), her doctor came in and told her that they'd gotten all of it, and that she did *not* have cancer. I'll be holding that image in my mind for you.
