projected work down time?

Thanks. I appreciate all of your replies and YES THE WAITING IS THE HARDEST PART! I went about 10 years without having a pap then had a physical in 1999. My pap was normal but the doctor did tell me to get in a bit more often. I was experiencing problems then but didn't complain about them (like a dummy). He asked me a lot of questions about my periods....are they heavy....are they long....are they crampy....etc. but didn't mention anything about a fibroid and must have had the wait and see approach. In December I decided to schedule a physical (with a different doctor) and finally complain about the problems I had been experiencing for 5-10 years. Little did I expect the problem to be what it was. I was surprised to find out I had a very large fibroid and after the ultrasound very surprised to find out it's as if I've been 3-4 months pregnant for the past 5-10 years. Today I just found out that I may have to postpone the appointment with the specialist (that I've already been waiting 3 weeks for) if I start my period before then (a real possibility). What a bummer. I'm ready to start the ball in motion now.

On the good side however, it gives me time to prepare and train someone to fill in for me at work. I'm a court administrator for the City of Winston, Oregon and the only one in the entire building who knows my job. I'm hoping that this spurs the administrator into hiring a floater who can learn the various jobs of the city and fill in when and where needed. Something we've needed for years! It also gives me time to try and push the messy cases through while still on my feet and try and ease the case load a bit while I'm gone. I'm putting together a procedure manual complete with print screens, examples and instructions to try and make things as easy and clear to understand as possible. The city administrator has been very understanding and we've come to a mutual decision that I'll take as long as necessary. It really helps that his wife went through a hyster a couple of years ago. I'm hoping that I only need to take 2-3 weeks off and then can go back on a very part time basis but of course will take the advise of my GYN. My boss even told me I can come in my pajamas if needed (lol). That's a bit extreme but I'm preparing for the worst and hoping for the best.
