Really. So the screening "shows the need for further evaluation." The letter even admonishes me to not be alarmed. So why am I worried?
"In most cases, additional imaging turns out to be normal." Yes, I can think of seven friends—right off the top of my head—who have been called back for another look. And yes, in five out of seven of those cases, everything was fine.
But those two friends? That second look turned them down a path that no one wants to travel.
So yeah, I'm a little anxious tonight, and not just because of this letter. (It would've been really nice of the Wellness Center to wait until after I distribute 900 yearbooks tomorrow to tell me I need more testing! I'm just a teensy bit stressed this week.) My head knows the odds, but my heart can't forget the possibilities.
God is in control, God is in control, God is in control...
(But I'd sure like to get some confirmation that additional testing really can turn out OK. Any stories you can share? Anyone?)
