I just got back from the Gyn; I love my doc.  After a good long look around, he said that whatever is in there is definitely something that is not supposed to be there.  Luckily, with all the action my cooter got with IUIs and IVFs, I barely even felt the procedure today.  I'll know what the biopsy says in about 5 days, and we'll go from there, but will most likely have a LEEP done in the next couple weeks.  He said that at worst case, cervical cancer is one of the easiest things to treat when caught early with a pap, and one of the worst & deadliest to deal with when left alone.  I def fall into the early catch category, thankfully.  It isn't nothing, but most likely it is something very managable.  I wish I could shake the feeling that I am the 1-2% of folks with the bad kind of cells, but we'll see.

I'm off to mow the very tall grass while Homestead Mama is still off picking up our CSA veggies with the babies.  I almost lost Monito in the yard yesterday - we haven't mowed since before vacation!

I'll be making peach and apricot pies tonight with the fruit we get.  Yummy.  Just what I need to cheer me up.  I haven't had time to respond to the commenters, but I really appreciate all the goodwill and good wishes.

I'll be thinking about you and hoping for a good outcome! I'm glad you have caught it early and your doctor is being so proactive. I am sure it is still very scary.

Good luck, good luck, good luck! It does help when you feel confident in your doc. So glad you have a good one.
