Update: Everything went well. The doctor said he didn't see anything unusual, but we'll still wait a few days for the test results. Melanie feels well and Isabella is doing okay now that she's back with her Momma. I was afraid she wouldn't get a morning nap, but she fell asleep in the car on the way home from the hospital so we kept driving, going to Chandler Hovey Park in Marblehead, which overlooks the ocean. Now we're home and everything is better again.
Melanie goes in for her procedure this morning to confirm the results of the last test that indeed she does not have cancer.
For those joining us late: Melanie had a miscarriage at 11 weeks in mid-February. The pathology indicated uterine cancer. The doctor did a biopsy which came back negative for cancer. They scheduled a full D&C and hysteroscopy for Friday, April 13, to double-check the biopsy results.
We’re fairly confident that indeed she does not have cancer. The doctor said it is extremely unlikely for a pregnant woman to develop uterine cancer since in fact pregnancy hormones prevent cancerous growth. Still, you can’t be 100 percent sure.
If you think of it, please say a prayer for her and also for Isabella. It’s a day surgery, but Melanie will be out of commission and won’t be able to take care of Isabella at least for the day. It’s going to be a tough day for the 11-month-old who doesn’t understand why Mommy can’t take care of her.
Thank you all for all the prayers in the past couple of months. They have truly sustained us.
We should have the results in 5 to 7 days.
