Waiting Part Two

I had the biopsy last Wednesday. The nurses at Mt. Auburn Hospital were great. The doctor, a radiologist, scared me a bit when he told me that "there was nothing to hang my hat on," and that I shouldn't assume the tumor is benign. He told me this as they were preparing to take me into the CAT scan/operating room. Thanks a lot.....that was one time when I would've preferred a little more positive talk, and/or a better bedside manner. But after the procedure, he did tell me that he didn't think I had melanoma, which was a major concern......I'm still sitting with shpilkes---I'm on pins and needles!
