Nodule? No way!

Needless to say, the last few days have been an emotional roller coaster for me!

I ran 4 miles on Tuesday, by the way...forgot to add that one in there! lol!

Anyway, with my breathing problems, I had a Doctor's appointment on Wednesday to check it all out. He ordered a Chest XRay just to make sure all was well. He then told me it all looked clear, no problems. Well, he's not a radiologist so when the actual radiologist read it, she found a small pulmonary (lung) nodule on my left side where the lung meets the diaphragm. My Dr. called the report to me Thursday afternoon and boy did I FREAK! Working around cancer, you don't take that kind of news well! HE then told me that they wanted me to have a CT Scan of my chest just to be sure. I cried and prayed and freaked and cried some more and prayed a lot. I spoke God's Word over my life and my body, I had my mother in law pray with me....I think I cried more in those two days then I have in my life! Thankfully I have amazing friends who care about me. Kim came and picked me up and brought me to the movies with her! lol! We went to see Post Grad and I was able to get my certain impending doom off my mind for a little while. I kept thinking, "GOD I haven't had any kids yet and I HAVE TO RUN THIS MARATHON in January no questions asked!" I cannot have cancer!!!!! I prayed that if there was something there on my lung, that it would be EASILY fixed and not cause me any troubles in the future. Before the movie started, I felt a peace wash over me and I told Kim I was going to be ok. I just knew deep down that whatever was wrong with me was just going to go away and resolve on its own! Praise GOD for a peace like that! A peace that logically you shouldn't have. A peace that passes ANY and ALL understanding!!!

Friday morning, I got to work and my boss knew about the situation and so did another girl that I work with. We called my Dr. and got everything arranged (thanks to my awesome co-workers) for me to have my CT scan down the road and that way it would be in St. Pat's system! YAY! Hehe! I had the CT scan of my chest done yesterday afternoon. I worried and worried about it so much. I have an awesome dad too by the way! He came and prayed with me that morning and he even went and sat with me while I was getting my test done! I have a great mom, too! And in-laws for that matter! I'm just blessed all the way around!!!!!!

After the CT scan, Jason took me back to my department so I could log into the computer and look at the images. Now, I really don't know what I am looking at...I can sometimes pick something out but on my own CT, I didn't see anything. My boss called the tech who did my CT scan and he said that he didn't see anything either. He told me to wait around because the Dr. was going to read my CT real quick and put up the results! (It's so good to be on the inside!!) lol! Not even 5 minutes later, the reults were there.....


I'm so glad it was just me and Jason in the department cause I started screaming and jumping up and down! lol! PRAISE GOD NO abnormalities seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Isn't God SO GOOD?! I just love that He cares so much for me!!

I felt so emotionally drained that day and the day before that I wasn't able to run. I did however get a good night sleep and was back into the swing of things today with a 4 mile run! Yay! Next Saturday is an 8 mile run! YIKES!! lol!
