"It's not a too-mah....."

Oh, but it IS a tumor!

That's right kids! Ladies and Gentlemen, children of all ages, step right up and see this amazing freak of nature.... the 26 year old woman with a big ol' tumor in her uterus! Aaaaahhhhhh!!! (*children run away screaming*).

Here are the basics: I went the gyno on Tuesday, February 17th. All was going fine until she felt that my uterus was enlarged. The doc asked if I could come in the next morning for an ultrasound. I did, and they found a pretty large tumor in my uterus. And thus the devastation begins...........

I am still waiting for the official call from the doc after they examine my ultrasound pictures. But here seems to be the thoughts so far: it's a fibroid tumor. Which apparently is common in women ages 30-40 (not me) and also more common in black women (not me). So here I am a 26 year old woman who has never had any children, who could possibly have that dream ripped away from her.

I've always known that I wanted children. And to suddenly know that I may not physically be able to do that EVER in my life, feels just.... well, it's just SO UNFAIR!!!!! I know I sound like a whiny child... but it's NOT FAIR!!!! NOT FAIR AT ALL!!!!

More details later.....
