Clean as a Whistle !

And there is much rejoicing …

All is good and right with my world again, thanks to a clean report from the doctors. In a word, “Yay!” It wasn’t until they actually used the “B” word (benign) that I donned my internal party hat and allowed my heart to dance a little jig of relief.

It’s really been an interesting, if exhausting couple of weeks around here. I do believe I’ve now run the full gamut of emotions in about fifteen day’s time. There was bitterness turned to extreme spirituality; sadness turned to angst; nostalgia turned to rage; disbelief turned to resolve; fright turned to unusual calm; and acceptance turned to fierce determination.

I’m many things today, but mostly thankful and elated!

I’ve said this before but cannot say it enough. I truly appreciate the warm and sincere wishes and the strong positive vibes sent my way from all who took the time via comments and emails. These have helped me to get over many a rough spot during this ugly journey I had to make. It’s amazing how a few kind words can raise the spirit via the Internet – truly amazing.

I have lots to say now; many happy little stories to tell and even some scary experiences to pass along. Mostly, I really want to catch up on visiting blogs and leaving my humble footprint in the form of comments along the way. I won’t get into much detail here about the procedure I had or about some other minor trials I’ve had in the past few weeks, but I’ll be back with a more in-depth report over the next week or so as I catch up on reading your posts.

Thanks again for the patience, the friendships, the caring and the time it took for you to stop in, read and stop back again to check on me!

Ain’t life somethin’ else?

Sincerely, Hag

Happy you'll be with us another day, although I think Buddha is something of a ninny. Contentment is tantamout to boredom, methings in all me infinite wisdom.

Happy to hear it was benign and I've been hoping each day that you were fine. I missed you and am thrilled that everything is good. What a relief.

What terrific news. I'm so pleased to hear that all has turned out for the better. Damn our bodies for doing such things to us!

The relief you feel must be immense...I'm feeling a huge relief myself and that's ME for goodness sake. I can't know what you went through, but you sure have a great way of describing the emotional turmoil of it all, so I can certainly imagine.

My heart is dancing a jig of it's own on your behalf.

I am SO glad and thankful. Those weeks of not knowing will change your life forever, in a good way. They certainly did mine. My outcome wasn't totally benign, but it wasn't deadly either, and suddenly all the bullfeathers dropped away and life was very, very real. All my very best wishes for your "new life".

I wanted to leave another comment yesterday, telling you that I was thinking about you - but Blogger wouldn't let me!

I am so happy to hear that it is benign, Carol. That's another thing we have in common. I had lumps back in the 60's, but they were okay. Thanks for the good news.

I'm so happy for you Carol!!!!!!!

Some say (and I agree); "everything in life is a lesson."
You passed this difficult lesson with flying colors. Can't wait to hear what you learned from the experience.
