thankful thursday-need prayer edition

today, i am most thankful for western medicine. because of it, i have had 3 c-sections and 3 beautiful perfect babies to show because of it. also i'm thankful because it helps me like this...

speaking of reproductive health...(meaning boys can leave now)

i went to have my pap smear today. i told them how i had been having heavier bleeding and hadn't regulated on my periods yet. so he did an ultrasound to check. i have a polyp in my uterus and also the endometrium is thickening. so on the 17th, i will have a hysteroscope to remove the polyp and also to have a D&C. the thing with polyps is that they can be precancerous. the pathology of the polyp will determine what happens next. i could possibly have to have an ablation if it's not precancerous. if it is, then i'll just have a hysterectomy. but we will have to wait to see on the latter. we will also have to see if my uterus (having been thrice c-sected) can handle an ablation.

but anyway, just wanted to let you girls know what was up and tell you that i really need your prayers. i don't feel like it is precancerous since i have never had anything abnormal. but you never know. i'm assuming that it wasn't there 6 months ago b/c he was in full view of my uterus then and he is pretty business.

I will definitely say some prayers for you. Let me know how it goes. I had to go get a mammogram a couple of years back and I remember how scary it was doing something and worrying about something that we shouldn't have to think about for many more years. I know everything will be fine!

LOOK WHO'S MARRIED!!!!! said...

becky,
tell your friend NOT to move here. it might be entertaining, but the people here suck. i guess i'm spoiled and used to southern hospitality...but, it's been really hard to make good friends. everyone here is so self-centered and only into drinking and partying....agh, don't get me started.
but, i'd LOVE to meet your friend because i'm sure she's wonderful!!! i can't wait. when is she moving out.
seriously, i can help her decide where to live...to avoid the bad neighborhoods, etc.
