Two weeks ago I went to a hand specialist to get what I thought was a cyst drained in my left hand. After looking at it he said that it was hard so he really thought it was a tumor and he order x-rays. The x-rays revealed that it is what he calls a giant tumor and there are three bones affected. On of them is trying to move out of it's way so it is slightly deformed. Because of this he order a MRI to make sure that it is not located in the bones before cutting it out. The good news is that it is not in the bones but has attached itself to three of them, like barbwire does to a tree.
So because of this I am having surgery next Tuesday morning to check this big daddy out. If the tumor looks as expected I will wake up with a nice incision and in a cast or splint. I could also be in quiet a bit of pain as they are going to scrape my little bones (ugh) but then after six to eight weeks I'll be fine. If I wake up with only a band-aid that means more test and more doctors.
I admit I dread the surgery and my biggest thing is being restrained to using only one hand during the recovery time. I've been practicing and there are sooo many things that I have no clue how to do with only one hand. I have been making a few casseroles and putting them in the freezer because I do not want to eat sandwiches this whole time.
So if you don't hear from me just remember I'll be back!
I am in great spirits and have no fears as I know my God is in control! He's giving me peace and I'm ready to get it done! Thanks for stopping by y'all and please come again soon!
