Last Monday, Mrs. BBD had her annual physical exam by our Family Practice doctor. When he did the PAP smear he noticed a polyp on her cervix and want's to get that checked out a little more closely. As a part of her physical, she had a bone density test and a mammogram completed last Friday. They called today with the results of the mammogram and said they wanted to do a CAT Scan and maybe a biopsy tomorrow because the mammogram showed a "dark spot" on one of her breast that they are pretty concerned about. They also said that some of her blood tests needed to be redone because they were not within the normal ranges. Both Mrs. BBD and I are a little concerned about these results and feeling a bit down today... Don't you just hate bad news? We'll get through this together just fine as the developments play out but it sure is a pain in the ass to get news like this. It's time for me to buck up and be strong for Mrs. BBD and I'm up for it. Luckily, she's a retired RN and I am a retired Navy Hospital Corpsman so we both know what's going on so it all doesn't sound like Greek when they try to explain it to us. Guess we'll know more tomorrow, maybe. Until then, it's a bummer of a day. Have any of you other ladies been through this experience and if so, how did you deal with it all?
