Benign, my new favorite B-Word!

 Y'all, I am sooooo happy to be writing in a different tone. Say my new favorite word with me..




That was my text it to all my friends and family, when I finally got the word. To be exact my tumor is a Chondromyxoid fibroma. (You can follow the link to get all the deets about that.) I am the not-so proud owner of one of the rarest bone tumors there are and for once I am actually not being dramatic when I say this. If you go to the link you will see that it accounts for less than 1% of all bone tumors. Crazy to think, but we are just going to ride on that happy wave of the tumor being benign. Next

They were able to get me in next week, which I am grateful for with how long this whole process has been. My mom is flying out to help Anthony (because I refuse to say 'my husband' every time I refer to him, there's his name.) Everything seems to be finally falling into place and the idea of a full day with no pain is ACTUALLY in my reach. I cannot WAIT.

When I think about my headspace in my last blog post all I can say is, it was rough. You could tell from the tone of it all. I went with that same energy into the appointment and had to bring my kids. I was DREADING it! I always say, they know the days I need a little extra love. Those destructive little minions were absolute angels the whole time, a true rarity. From getting them ready, to lugging them into the car, they were the good luck charms I needed that day. 

So that's my update! There's still a long road ahead with these type of tumors, but we will deal with this as we go. For now, the only other thing I can say is THANK YOU GOD!
