So Very Thankful to God, So Very Relieved

As some of you may know, I recently found out I have a Dermoid Cyst on my left ovary and will be having surgery to have it removed in about 3 of weeks.

I was told by my doctor that in most cases Dermoids are benign, but just as a routine measure and to make extra sure I was sent for blood work to make sure that there was no sign of it being cancerous.

Despite the slim chance of it being a cancerous cyst I have to admit that I have been worried and on pins and needles waiting for my blood work results.

Today my doctor called to answer a question I had regarding my upcoming surgery. I wasn't available to answer the phone, but my DH took the call. Doctor gave the answer to my question to my DH and while on the phone with him also informed him that all my blood work came back normal.

I heard the tail end of the conversation and realized that my DH was on the phone with my doctor. The minute I heard my DH reconfirm with the doctor that my blood tests were all normal I started to cry. I was so relieved! What a huge weight off of my shoulders.

Now all I have to do is get through my surgery with flying colors, one less cyst, both ovaries intact, and then I can get on the road to recovery and hopefully the road to motherhood.
