I am so sorry to hear that, but you WILL get through this.  We are here to help as much as we can. Did they say exactly what the results showed positive for?  I know they were testing for malignant cells, but could they tell the origin/type?  Did the dr's office give you a "next step" like a referral to a gyn/onc?

I know this is a shock and it's going to take some time to gather your wits and calm yourself.  One thing you might do is make a list of all the questions you have right now and keep that list with you to add to as you go through the day.  Also, it should be okay to call the office back in a little while and ask them some of your questions if you really feel you need some additional answers/explanations.  Just let them know your husband is away and you want to be fully informed before you tell him the test results. Do you have a support network you can call on?  Family or friends?  It might help if you could have someone there to help you with the children for awhile and offer moral support until you get a clear understanding of what's going on with you.  Wish I could be there to offer a hug in person, Chris P

Dian,

Yes, she did but she has another fairly active thread going as well, so I think people are not ignoring her but trying not to respond twice.  It can get confusing with parallel threads.

No, no you didn't do anything wrong--no apology necessary.  As I said it just makes it hard when people are responding on two threads.  It's like only hearing part of a conversation sometimes!!

I am sorry the results came back like that.  I was hoping you would be spared dealing with this.  I hope all goes well and you get excellent care.  Please feel free to ask anything or to just come here to talk.  Marie

Will be praying you get the answers you need and can move forward.  Do you have anyone near you to lend a helping hand?  Wish I could help you with the lil ones.  They make the situation so much harder to deal with when you are alone.  Thoughts and prayers are with you.  Judy
