Need some purr power from my friends in The Orb.
I am hoping for ( and in need of) your best hopes, purrs, and wishes. A few days before Christmas I visited my doctor for what I figured was a minor issue ( a little bloating, some tenderness in my abdomen, a suddenly smaller bladder- no big deal, right ?). This had been going on for, oh, 18 days. Two hours, a blood test, and a cat scan ( not the good, feline kind) later I walked out with a diagnosis of an abdominal mass the size of an eggplant and a surgery date of January 10. Tomorrow I meet my surgeon, and on January 10 they will try to determine if this ovarian mass is cancer or not.
This is the nightmare scenario for me- I am terrified, absolutely terrified of needles, including IVs ( had my first in 56 years that day and almost could not do it) .
I am shamelessly requesting any available best wishes and good thoughts December 31 and January 10 :)
