OK, I’m beginning to lose it. The worst part of cancer is the waiting. Take the test and wait. Take the test and wait. I’m waiting for the genetic results; They are going to run a BRCA 1 & 2 test. If that test is negative the lab will call me to ask if I want another test run. I never got a call. So that could only mean one thing; that I’m positive. I’m freaking out.
I call Nurse Angel Karen and tell her how I’m freaking out and I’m convinced that I am genetically positive. It’s been over 2 weeks since I gave my blood, the lab never called me thus that must be what it means. It’s only logical.
Then I get a call from the lab. My heart stops. What are they going to tell me? They tell me ……they tell me they haven’t run my labs yet. WHAT?!?! I’d rather hear that news then I am positive but they have had my blood for 2 weeks and it’s still just sitting there. The woman from the lab had no explanation. Someone obviously dropped the ball. She said that may not have the results till Tuesday, maybe after. These results were supposed to determine my surgery. So now I have more waiting….
