Ignorance as a route to happiness?

Sometimes it just doesn't pay to be diligent.

And sometimes you really really wish you had left well enough alone.

Sometimes, ignorance IS bliss.

I wish I was still ignorant.

This weekend I realized I had not seen a report of the evaluation of my biopsies by the laboratory in Dallas, that was done July 11th. So I called them today.

The pathologists there think they already see cancer.

Endometrial Adenocarcinoma, Endometroid type.
FIGO Grade I associated with complex atypical hyperplasia.

However, the ca that they saw is very small.. 2mm (less than 1/8th an inch). However, I'm still in shock. Went shopping for stuff for family then came home and cried.

I have the path report right in front of me and keep going over and over and over it.

Staging can't be done until surgery. We'll know more then.

I had this report faxed to my surgeon in Houston.

I just happened to come across your blog while looking for new crochet projects. This is my daughter's account, so you can contact me at I went through surgery and cancer treatment 7 years ago and am doing really well now. I had a squamous cell carcinoma in my mouth-quite large and aggressive. It's the scariest thing in the world. Let me know if you want to talk....
