I can't believe it's been almost a week since I've left an entry. Bless all of you who were concerned. Love you all! I'm fine just whooped and feeling the January blahs. Plus I can't seem to break the temptation of nicotine while at the computer. LOL...I believe a crazy lady lurks inside of me.
Megan had her cryosurgery on Wednesday. Great news is that it's very mild dysplasia; milder than it appeared. Now to the procedure....my life is Murphy's law totally. It extends into the lives of my children. The clinic is about three blocks from the main hospital. The doctor had a tank and froze Megan's cervix for 3 min. 2 mins down time; then 3 more mins of freezing. He said her cervix looked like a sno-cone. They then let it sit for 2 more minutes to kill the cells and switch the machine to the "thaw" setting. Well, guess what, the "thaw" setting crapped out totally and he couldn't "defrost" Megan; his words exactly. She burst into tears, and I started laughing inappropriately but still couldn't stop. It was an insane situation. Megan then started laughing and crying at the same time. They called in the senior nurse who is probably in her 50's like me. She is the expert on the machine mechanics. She thought the tube had ice crystals in it....nope...it just died, which caused Megan to get more hysterical. Of course, I just saw it as an episode of the Keystone Cops; surreal to say the least. They tried swabbing but it wasn't working; then pouring saline into her; didn't work. The senior nurse dug out a thing that looked like a turkey baster. It was plastic wrapped but ancient. They filled it with saline and voila...my baby was "defrosted." Basically, a 20 minute procedure took almost an hour. Megan developed a migraine so they treated her for that. Off she went to eat and take more meds. I dropped her off at class. She was recovered by then and laughing as hysterically as I was. We just had to discuss the way things happen in our lives continuously against the grain. Nothing is ever simple or basic. I live always waiting for the other shoe to fall, which invariably will happen.
I've been totally whooped all week. I've been working non-stop and making myself adjust to working five days a week. Honestly, 10 hr days was so much easier but working every day does help with my non-smoking. It's been cold and snowy here all week. I can't wait for spring time, flowers, daylight, etc. This winter season has been brutal on me this year.
Thought I'd make some light, springy tags in anticipation.
