What I've Learned Today.

  • Valium is fun, until you don't want to be stoned any more. I guess most drugs are like that, but it's been 7 hours and I want off the Valium ride now. I'm feeling a bit foggy headed, not truly stoned, but I'm ready to be me again.
  • I started singing Rolling Stones' "Mother's Little Helper" since about 10 am and haven't stopped yet. I totally get why my grandmother took this stuff for so long.
  • Walking around Target while slightly buzzed is fun. I can't wait to be fully conscious and discover what I bought.
  • The post procedure nap was the most solid one I've ever taken.
  • My doctor has this way of making me relax about anything that's going on. We found more than expected and something unexpected, but by her description of the next procedure- I'm totally not worried about it (the procedure.)

Which brings me to what was found. I have polyps. There were 2- one in my fallopian tube and one in the lining of my uterus. Part of me is really scared. Polyps have the possiblity to be cancerous. I had some comfort when I thought that it was the fibroid tumor. Those are almost never cancerous. Polyps may be. She left the fallopian tube one alone, but biopsied the wall one. I will be having surgery to remove them both sometime in the near future.

Just think after the procedures, we are coming to your house and bringing you ice cream to celebrate the success! :)

I'm so proud of your braveness. Valium is a nice thing. Every now and then when I've taken it there has been the "after glow" slightly depressive state- just in case it comes you'll recognize it.

Hey, if you did the up the ya-hoo thing (or the up the hoo-ha thing), you can deal with anything. Hang in there and go with the Valium flow. I've never tried Valium, so please take an extra one for me.

Sending hugs. Fingers crossed that everything comes back negative. At least you've got the valium. I've never had valium. I'm a codeine girl.

Awwwh, big hug!
Valium can be a wonderful thing but the let-down and reality must sooner or later be absorbed also. As with all things, it will pass and life will continue.
So what's the next step now? Wait?
I would advise against knitting on usually leads to ripping out later (giggle).
