Thank you everyone for your lovely and touching comments and prayers.
I had my mole removed from my leg today and I have been told that the result should be back by Monday. He said it looked suspicious of melanoma, but then added "Pam don't worry until the result is back. The best idea is not to think about it until we see what we are dealing with" . Don't you hate the way they refer to your problem as "we". It is very hard no to think about it and when Monday arrives, I will be a nervous wreck.
I will let you know what the result is when I find out.
Thank you again for caring everyone, love Beautybabe.
We're here for you, BB. Just hang on, and have faith. And yes, I love that Royal "We."
I know the feeling- hope all is benign and well. Have a similar opportunity going now- have a CTScan Monday night for an unusuall spot on my lungs. How can somebody tell you to "not think about it?" It is like a giant pink elephant in the room. The best way for me to get through it (I amin Cancer recover already and go through stuff like this every 3-6 months) is to stay incredibly busy. This forum is new to me- have 3 Blogs going for about a year and a half...but you are right- "don't think about it" - is not an available option.
Prayers are with you.
Best wishes and positive thoughts go out to you. Keep us posted and take care!
To Laural, Habee and Sara thank you so much again for these lovely thoughts and prayers.
It is touching to have you there with me, lets hope they work.
The thing is trying to stop thinking about it, No Chance.
It might be easy for them to say " Don't Worry", it isn't that easy to do. is it? Beautybabe.
They go through many cases like that so it may be part of their work to say "we". But let's take it in positive way. Keep us posted about yourself and take care!
I can sympathize with you all too well The waiting for pathology is the worst for me, too. I even wrote a hub about it.
Just remember Jesus is already there.
If the "what if" worry is controlling you, I have a trick I use that may help. Set a timer for 5 minutes. During that 5 minutes let all your fears play out. Every scenario - just run it down the track all the way. Chances are you will be clock watching before the time is up. And then the rest of the day, when worrying about it enters your mind, you can dismiss it knowing you already crossed it off your to-do list. Corny, yes, but it helps me.
Prayers for you, Holly
SENDING POSITIVE LOVE YOUR WAY
And another prayer, do your best to stay positive
and take care
You are in my heart constantly, you know that. I am sending love to you hon. Your in my prayers.
Sending prayers, hugs and positive thoughts your way.
Hi Beauty Babe,
I want to share that I had melonoma over twenty years ago. Naturally, I was scared stiff, but after surgery I never had another problem with it. And this was a multi-colored ugly looking mole. Once the surgery was over, I didn't spend a lot of time fearing that it would return, and it did not return. I recently had a breast biopsy, and have not heard anything after two weeks and a day. Hopefully, my biopsy will show a benign growth, but if not, I will have it treated and "just say no" to fear. Hang in there.

In what is absolutely the LAST thing I and what family I have left need to hear at this point in time - my father is back in the hospital with sepsis. He's been fighting an infection in the bones of his foot for ten years now, he is severely diabetic...and they're finally going to amputate his...

For those of you who pray, wouldya send one up for me? For those of you who don't pray, will you send positive thoughts my way? I have a pre-cancerous condition called MGUS. It's sometimes a precursor to multiple myeloma. I have to get checked every 6 months. I had my labs yesterday, and I find out...

Dang. We need to buy stock in our local hospital. Hubby got out of CCU just a couple of weeks ago, my son-in-law had to have an appendectomy last week, and two of my daughters are there now. One has been admitted for pyelonephritis, and the other has been in the ER for seven hours with severe...

A family member of mine has hit rock bottom after a long path of self destruction and addiction. I don't want to give details beyond that because I'm using my real name on this site, but they need healing badly right now, physical, mental, and emotional.

As most of you know Lynnechandler is my mama .. Well we recently found out that she has been near stroking out of this world. I am not going into detail about all of it but let's just say she was misdiagnosed and it nearly killed her. She finally went to the doctor about it and now they are on the...

I am seeing a specialist today because my GP thinks that a mole I have on my left leg could be a "Melanoma".Because I have fair skin, and a Queenslander, I am at risk of this, but I don't go out in the sun very much.However, he says it is still possible that this can happen, and this...
