The Big C

Ok, so I’ve been silent for a long time now. Sorry my faithful reader (Scott – are you out there?) I’ve been going about my business and doing the normal life thing: Work, eat, sleep etc. I am trying my very best to carry on with everything as normal.

See what happened is this. I went to the gynae for a check up as I’ve had some complications which I won’t go into here and now. He prescribed some meds for me. He then phoned me 2 days later to say they’d found atypical cells in my pap smear. He’s recommended that I go in for a ‘small procedure’ at a local hospital. The procedure (as far as I can surmise) will determine the nature of the atypical cells and if they can see them they will remove them then and there. The doc assures me this is ‘to rule out the possibility of cervical cancer.’ This doesn’t make me all warm and fuzzy inside.

So, going about my business all the while thinking ‘I may have cancer… I may actually die… I can’t leave my daughter all alone in this world’. Nice hey? I thought so too. I am up and down about this. Some days I feel it’s all going to be fine. Some days not so much. Most of all I feel very, very alone, no matter now much re-assurance I get.

My hospital date is set for 7am on 17th June. I need all the prayer and friendship I can get.


  1. I'll add you to my prayers and I hope it turns out to be nothing at all.

  2. Hey! I pop round here at LEAST once a week to see if you've returned!
    Sorry you've been having a rough time Bee. I'll pray for you.

  3. Nothing chaps me more than waiting for test results, expect when you get a voice mail at 4:55PM saying please call me back-I need to talk to you. Then they are gone until the next morning. I'm 12 wks preg and they did that to me. Come to find out its a privacy rule that they can't leave it on voice mail.Good luck to you.

  4. I am a dork. I typed expect instead of except.

  5. our prayers are with you all
