That stupid fourth word

I've been waiting to hear three little words. They came today, but with a fourth one, unwanted, tagged on.

"It's not cancer...yet."

I guess that's a good thing? Still wrapping my mind around it. It's messing with the new dream career, the one where I was supposed to be moving to a developing nation next week.

Surgery is scheduled, and fortunately I'm working with a really good specialist, one of the best in the area from what my doctor tells me. He's confident that he can remove all of the abnormal cells, the precancerous ones.

Like I told a friend the other day, when your life plan involves getting divorced at 27, hearing you might have cancer at 29 seems like the next logical step, right?

I'm surprisingly zen about it. I know it'll all work out how it's supposed to - just makes it tough to plan when I have movers coming next week, and flights already booked to the other side of the world, and work piling up on my new desk that I haven't even seen yet, and so much eagerness to get out of here and start the exciting new chapter that's waiting for me.

I'd love some healthy mojo.

Yes, it's a good thing. I know you're busy, and things are hectic, but it could always be worse.

It's a stupid fourth word, but try to remember the first three words. They could have been different, they could have been "It is cancer".

Yes, surgery stinks, but I felt blessed when I heard the same words, and had the three bad spots cut out. I had to have more stereotactic biopsies since, but I still haven't heard those three words. I hope you never do. A fourth word is a blessing.

Mojo headed your way. It sounds like you are in good hands, and from what I understand about where you are going, there should be some good hands there as well. (((Ama)))

Sending you mojo.

It is always hard to hear the you might have cancer no matter what the age. I was nearly 31 when I was told I had it and there were evidence that it had spread. It shook my world. My only advice is to stay on top of it and make sure your doctors know your history when you see them for anything.

millions of hugs to you.

Remember: the important word is "NOT," not "yet."

You're in my thoughts.

I had precancerous cells removed 21 years ago. I remain vigilant, but I'm still taking names and kicking asses every single day.

You will, too. Please keep us posted.

I'm very happy your fourth word was a good one. It's good to have this taken care of now even with everything else you have going on. It seems like a lot to deal with but you can and will do it.

Along the way please make sure you don't push your recovery. Do what you can, as you can. It will make a difference.

Wishing you strength and healing thoughts.
