spikes_heart: (This Is How I Feel)
[personal profile] spikes_heart
If you want to know what's going on with me these days, feel free to check under the cut. It's not good, folks.


Those of you who've seen me around the past nearly ten years or so have read about the hell that was life in Vermont, the possibility of homelessness, the return to the bosom of my children and the birth of my grandchildren. You've slogged through my surgeries and my frayed nerves. You've read the occasional fanfic I've managed to get out.

Today I received the birthday present from Hell. I hadn't mentioned this latest crisis... it was just a bit too much. Last Sunday my lady parts decided to they wanted to be Niagara Falls. Lovely hemorrhaging and a trip to the emergency room resulted in a two day hospital stay and lots of invasive testing.

Today I had a follow-up visit with the doctor and she pronounced the results of the biopsy.

Endometrial cancer.

I don't know what stage it's in yet... have a GYN appointment next Tuesday, but it looks like there's another surgery on my horizon.

Yay.

I really think I'm at the end of my wits here. Enough, already. Okay?

Just fuck.

Sod and buggery to bloody hell. SO not fair.

I've been bouncing back and forth to gynae doctors with unwanted bleeding too, so I know what it's like. Not fun.

{{{hugs}}} and lots of kisses.

Hopefully as it's the endometrium it's "local" and contained ... and therefore "easily" treated.

Doesn't help you at this point, but my love and thoughts are with you.

*hugs* you tight.

Oh honey, I am so so sorry. It never just rains for some people, it seems, just pours and pours. Stupid universe.

Hoping and wishing that it is in its early stages and as easily treatable as possible.

*hugs you very, very hard*

A friend of mine once said that the uterus should just shrivel up like a walnut and fall out when we are done with it - that would solve so many problems. Remember that a positive attitude can be everything when it comes to recovery. Hugs!

Agreed. In the mean time, I'm sitting here, trying not to bleed to death. Sorry for the TMI and hoping it's not another emergency room trip in the works.

From: [identity profile] evenstar-estel.livejournal.com
Well that just plain sucks! I hope that it's easily taken care of with little stress and cost to you. Hell, my attitude is, if you're done using it what's the point of leaving it in there if it's just gonna go apocalyptic on you?

*hugs*

At 58 years old, I have no need of the bloody thing at all. If only wishing took care of it instead of surgery. **sighs** Thanks for the kind words, hon.
