Typically going to the Lady Doctor is an event that most women don't look forward too. However, after last year's scare I was A-OK going today. Not only that my Lady Doctor is uber awesome!
First when they saw how much weight I had lost the high fives were on.
"Girl you look good; what did you do?"
I told her how
kicked mine and my hubby's behind in to shape.
As I waited for my Lady Doctor I sat there observing the beautifully decorated exam room, I had been in this one previously. I remembered the year before looking out at the cobalt sky through the rectangle window wishing I was anywhere but in that room. Hearing the nurse say
"But, she's so young."
Brought an overflow of anxiety and fear, even as I sat there today I felt my stomach tighten. But it was different this time, cotton water particles filled the window creating fun little shapes that actually took my mind away for a moment.
The squeak of the large wooden door pulled me back in.
"Hello Andrea, how are you?"
My Lady Doctor has impeccable style, it's like I was looking through a Coldwater Creek catalog.
"I'm great!" As I looked over at the maroon vase next to the reproductive model.
She sat down, pulled out her iPad and we began discussing last years results and my surgery.
"You are an enigma, it is one thing to have three large dermoid cysts ten years ago and then there's you who had them again and larger last year, that is very rare for women to get dermoid cysts of that size twice."
*I will take dermoid cysts over the alternative any day*
The word Enigma flashed in my brain; I love that word, it's rarely used and I find it to be a compliment. The doctors said the same thing about Logan when he was sick. We are a family of Enigma's ha!
At the end of the exam my Lady Doctor and I did a little Raise the Roof action; no lumps, bumps, masses or whoppers were found!
*Whopper is what the doctor named it once she found it during my exam last year; pretty sure that's not a medical term*
Okay, so the moral of the story is this....
Don't neglect your girlie parts!
Shame on me for pushing my health aside. As women and as mother's we tend to do so especially when our children are going through their own medical crisis. But let's be honest, we hold our families together and we need to be healthy and strong.
And sooner or later my child would have run out of clean clothes to wear as my husband doesn't touch the washing machine;-)
Also my peeps
needs your help! They need 1000 likes on facebook by November 1st; when they hit that number they will donate $1000 to the Dawn Center
who helps those victimized by domestic sexual violence and victims of sexual assault.
And on a side note, I think we should really receive some type of treat after such an exam; I'd go for a free Starbucks coupon or maybe a huge chocolate bar.....just sayin'.
