Well, I thought I was done being poked and prodded by medical types. I was wrong. After about a week of playing phone tag with the midwife (who I really like by the way) finally got a hold of me while I was getting the kids ready for bed. She wants me to go get blood drawn to check for ovarian cancer, just in case- because of my family history. That what if was scarier to me than being told I definitely had precancerous cells on my cervix years ago. My Oma had ovarian cancer, skin cancer, and a cancerous tumor in her stomach. I'm not sure which was the cause of her death, but she was in a lot of pain for a long time fighting it.

I also have to have my cysts monitored, and go see a specialist about the lump in my left breast- again, just in case. I'm glad they care so much, I just wish it wasn't so scary.
