(Too much information alert: If thinking about internal girly bits makes you queasy, read another post.)
Good news: The cystic ovary I've been worried about is fine; the cyst seems to have resolved.
Neutral news: My mack-daddy fibroid isn't doing anything -- but the doctor wants to watch it, and my uterine lining, more carefully. So I have another appointment with the ultrasound tech in another couple of months.
Needless to say, I was quite relieved this morning...but not totally. I'm still not feeling very friendly toward my reproductive system. And I'll be checking into alternative ways of improving my health -- diet and activity stuff.
But I shall, as Scarlett O'Hara would say, think about that tomorrow. Today, after my appointment -- my head pounding and my muscles actually sore from stress -- naps and chocolate were in order. I was beat.
Thanks to all for your thoughts and prayers. They helped.
