Thedaughter has been dreading today, as she had a doctor's appointment at 10:30am for a biopsy. She had her annual gyne checkup last week, and for that appointment, she didn't even see the DOCTOR, but a Physician's Assistant. I have not had the greatest experiences with PA's and make an adamant statement on any visits I have, I pay to see a doctor, that's what I expect.
Anyway, my daughter was born with a mole on her breast, (on nipple) and it has never been a worry in her 29 years. Our family physician always checks for changes and such, which until recently there were none. But now, one breast has become larger than the other (the one with the mole), and she had a little drainage (which she omitted telling me). So the PA stated that she felt a biopsy needed to be taken, and thedaughter told her she would make arrangements for when we returned from vacation on the 15th. Hells bells, the PA called thedaughter the next day AT WORK - scaring her to death, stating she was VERY worried and wanted it tended to immediately.
Thedaughter called me from work crying, as this PA was alluding to the big "C". I have to note here, thedaughter told her to call the HOUSE if she needed to get a hold of her. So much for a PA with a brain.
This has been preying on her mind for one solid week. There is a long history of cancer in the family which does not help at all. We went this morning, and our doctor, who is also a friend, was slightly pissed that this PA made such a big deal and urgency over this. I won't go so far as to say I believe it should be ignored - so he did the biopsy, and put an ASAP order on it - so possibly we will have the results by Friday afternoon.
I am exhausted though, as we have been trying to gather everything together for vacation - and if thegrandson had his way - he would pack his entire toy room. So I'm taking a break this evening - and hopefully will have something for tomorrow.
Theson sent me a link I may use, so I need to rest my brain a wee tad. Hope veryone has a great evening. It is frigid here - 50* at the moment. I'm not complaining though. I had to buy a new thermostat yesterday, as the one I had, had a touch pad that decided not to respond to touch anymore, and I couldn't adjust the temp for the AC. Thanx to theRuss for coming to my rescue and wiring it for me. I was going to tackle the job, but I have a healthy respect for electricity.
With that, I leave you....goodnight!!!! I'm going to try and find the Pens on a local channel - jeesh what a job.
