I went to the surgeon yesterday, only to find out that I DO NOT have a tumor! YAY! It's a cyst! (start rant about idiot doctors)
Any way the surgeon said I have three options:
1) Leave it alone and live with the pain. (not working so well for me)
2) Drain it with a needle... supposedly to give me 3 to 6 months of relief.
3)Have it surgically removed and never have to deal with it again.
Being that I am one of those "afraid of dying on the table, and leaving my husband to raise all of my children as a single parent until he meets some crazy woman who marries him and locks the children in an attic" types...I went for option #2!
No big deal...He jammed a 3 inch needle into my wrist and sucked out 3 tubes worth of junk. (this was a LOT LESS PAINFUL than it sounds!) There was instant relief and the bump disappeared immediately!
Then three hours later...IT CAME BACK! It is now twice the size and you can see it even when my hand is strait...as opposed to only when I bend my wrist.
EVERYBODY CRY WITH ME!
So what do I do now? I get to schedule surgery...Yay. (note hint of sarcasm) I was really hoping I could put it off...oh...FOREVER.
- I am a 29-ish yr old married mother of 8. My family is my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. My darling husband is my very best friend and together we are raising 8 of the best kids in the world! They are Rose(12) Sarah(12) Ammon(10) Malachi(8) Gabriel(7) Hannah(5) Maggie(4) and Abbie(3) We currently own 2 dogs, 1 bird, 5 chinchillas, 1,000,000 rabbits, 1 cat, 4.5 horses, and one ferret. We just purchased a home that is definately a "fixer-upper", with land and room for the kids to roam. Our goal is to run a mostly self sustaining farm and live in peace as we grow as a strong family unit. We have seen our fair share of hardships, but we are thankful for the many blessings the Lord gives us on a regular basis!
