Things are finally starting to move along now. I have a date set for my biopsy, its on thursday the 8th september. They are going to remove one of the lymph nodes from my right shoulder area. Went and saw the day surgery unit to complete all the paperwork. One of the nurses there was so nice to me. When she realised what I might be facing she put her hand on my arm and asked if I was alright. Well that just set me off. I couldnt hold the emotions back anymore and had a good cry. She even gave me a hug which felt really special when a lot of the people so far have been quite clinical about it all. Made me feel like a human being again, doesnt take much 🙂 I spent the rest of the day wandering around town in a bit of a daze I guess. I went and made an appointment to see my doctor the week following the biopsy. I want her to tell me the results not the hospital, that way I can have some of my family and my fiance with me when I get the news. Came home and slept for a few hours and then made arrangements for our engagement party. Dad was so nice he has offered to pay for it as an engagement present. It will be a good distraction for me as well organising things. Starting to hate being alone in this house now.
