Remember "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"? One of my favorite scenes (this shows you how sick I am) is when Aunt Voula talks about her "bobopsy" and "hormonees". My daughter laughs with me over this, so she sent me the link, and I thought you might enjoy it:
One of the ways God encourages me through the hard places of life is through humor. Nothing replaces time spent with Him, of course, but as I focus on the knowledge that He is in control and I have His peace, then I can totally enjoy the humorous nuggets that come my way.
Remember my post last week about the mammogram and yearly exams? Well, I got home later that night and found a letter from my gynecologist saying I need further examination for a possible problem they found on my mammogram. It seems they didn't like the picture of my "girls". There's just so much I could do with that, but I'll let it go.
Okay, long story short, I went back for a second mammogram, ultrasound and today I had a needle biopsy. Great fun on many levels, but add to the fact I've had a cold and fever since Sunday night and I'm telling you, the fun never ends.
So hubby and I are in the waiting room, well, waiting. Now my man, he's wonderful in so many ways. Loaded with talents, gifts, but knowing what to say when, isn't one of them. For instance, AFTER I had taken cough syrup with codeine, AND two Valium pills, he forges into an oratory on the national debt and the state of the world today. I'm quite sure my glazed eyes had reached the level of other-worldly, but for some reason, he just didn't see it. While my mind searched for clues as to what national debt meant, the nurse came in.
The whole time I felt I had complete control over my tongue (a rarity) until the nurse asked my husband if I was always this entertaining. I had no idea what she was talking about.
The procedure was fairly harmless. The medical staff was fun and upbeat. I'll know either Friday or Monday what the results are, so I'll keep you posted. (Though the doctor nor I expect it to be anything of consequence). And in the meantime, I'm truly at peace knowing that God continues to be in control, come what may.
And the point of this blog? There IS joy in the journey! Get your exams!
