Blessed

I haven't much time, but wanted to update you all on my good fortune.

The ultrasound went very well.  I have a cluster of cysts which, on the screen, looked mammoth in size.  But they are all fluid filled and pretty harmless.  Unless they become uncomfortable for me (and at times, they HAVE been ~ just not enough to be overly concerned) we will simply keep watch of them and leave them be otherwise. 

I finally told the girls about what was going on.  I'd kept it to myself mostly, telling only a few close friends and family members and then, of course, sharing it here with all of you.  I decided it was good for them to know, and although they weren't all that appreciative for the unsolicited advice about getting to know their own bodies, they were relieved to know it had turned out to be nothing.  And I was thankful they did not hold it against me for not telling them sooner. 

Thank you all, for prayers, good thoughts and encouraging words.  I am truly blessed.

I am so relieved that what was going on turned out to be nothing to worry about.  Unlike you, I would have been freaking out (as I do), instead of remaining calm and waiting for the answer to the question, before letting myself become a basket case!  I wish I were more like you, Chelle.. in that regard.
I have never looked upon you as a person who is a "look at me" kind of woman.  You are always so sweet and humble and kind.  
I don't think that anyone would see otherwise, in regards to you sharing something about yourself (as you did).  I think the majority of us, who read your journal, are here for you.  We all group together as one, and unite our prayers and good wishes when something happens or might happen to one of our fellow Jlanders.
I'm glad you were able to open up and share your experience, thoughts and feelings with us, Chelle.

Again, I am grateful and relieved that all is well in your world!

Hugs and love
Jackie

Wonderful news! God is so good.
Sorry hon that its taken me so long to get here. I'll be back again though. So happy I didn't lose track of you. I miss my regular Hey Let's Talk journal. Transfered it here but it doesn't look the same, needs to be worked on a bit. But my new journal
"A New Beginning" made the transition a bit easier. Take care.
Love you much.

You are even more overdue for an update than I realized!!
I tried to stop following you and then re-followed. I'll let you know if it works.

Martha said...

Well, it worked just fine after my little adjustment. Hmmmm, weird! Sorry I scared you!
