Biopsy finished….

and now the wait begins which I was told was 3 – 5 days.  It was pretty tough.  It took 4 needles before they got enough cells for a biopsy.  I wasn’t given anything for the pain so by the 4th try I  just stayed still but the tears were flowing.  Very painful. My daughter stayed all night with me. 

Something very nice happened to me today though.  My son in law’s brother sent me a gorgeous real tomato so I will  be having a bacon tomato sandwich for supper.  Thanks Tim and Val.

Not a very good picture.  I am so delighted to have a real tomato.

I will post an update as soon as I find out what comes next.  I will face whatever it is as best I can.  Thank you all for the prayers, telephone calls and cards.  They have given me hope and strength.

Love,

Beth

  13. Dearest Beth,
    Kudos to you for being brave through the pain. I know waiting is hard. I would use the wait time to make hope even more concrete and pray for you.

  14. Enjoy that tomato. I agree that the ones that we buy do not taste good. I love this time of year when we have Farmers Markets and can buy vegies and fruits grown in our own state and often picked the same morning. We love open faced sandwiches with tomato and chees melted on top. My mom used to make them like that but added a couple strips of bacon on each and put them under the broiler until the bacon was done. It was always a favorite of mine. I continue to pray also, and wish you didn't have to go through this again. I'm praying for some good news for you. Hugs. Bertie

  27. Beth - where did they take the biopsy from if I may ask - your mouth? And that was sweet of your daughter. I know that wait to get the results - each day seems like a week. And that tomato is beautiful. Prayers and hugs your way.
