So Lintilla calls me. The results of the analysis after her D&C are in.
Boys, you are never prepared for when your wife says the words “I have cancer”. I’m in a haze right now.
Adnosarcoma. Of course, it’s rare.
At least she’s going to get her wish and get a full hysterectomy. And there are some lymph nodes that have to come out. From what she tells me, this should fix everything.
I’d appreciate any prayers for her.
Update from Lintilla:
Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. I must admit I knew something was up when my OB/GYN of over 20 yrs calls and says ‘do you have a minute?’ I told her then and there that it must not be good because she has NEVER called me personally in all these years!
Yes, this thing is call adenosarcoma– no relation whatsoever to newscoma.. haha–just kidding. It is rare and apparently not genetic. I told the doc that she knew that I was “special”, so of course I would get the haute couture kind of cancer.
I have been scheduled to consult with an specialist in this kind of stuff on the 27th. I have heard many nice things about him– he is a good surgeon, very calming, good bedside manner. That makes me feel reassured. When my doc told him about the test results, he wasted no time in getting me set up– I have the surgery on Dec. 3.
This, of course, is NOT the Christmas gift I was hoping for, however, a tummy tuck while I’m out would be a nice addition to my lifestyle! It will help also with the kids, because they can stay at home during the holidays instead of going to aftercare at school. (they hate the director)
We told the kids tonight. Want to know what the kids think of me? Will is counting on an increase in his allowance because he will have to do more around the house and Katie stated that she had passed gas twice while I was talking. So much for drama in our house.
Anyway, I really appreciate you all and keep Slarti in your thoughts more because he seems to be taking this harder than me. Must be that mystery surrounding women and their bodies that has him in a tizzy. I will let Sarti keep you updated on things in his indomitable way– which means he’s better with words than I am..
Just do not let him tell you what I say under versed, anesthesia or morphine. I can hurt people when I’m strong! Love y’all– Lintilla
