It took a little over an hour. Found out new information, there are more than just one mass on my left I have about 3-4. My doctor was very warm and welcoming! I did not get scared or cry! Right now I am in quite a bit of pain though. They had to go through a muscle to get to a node so my neck is quite tender. He said the results will be in by Monday he thinks! Thanks for all the prayers and happy thoughts! Means more then you could ever know!

Well, step one is out of the way!  Hey, you can always make up a story about being bitten by a very handsome vampire ;).  All kidding aside, I'm glad you've crossed this hurdle and hoping for good news on Monday!  Please keep us updated and know you're not alone, Manda.

Big hugs,

Jim

Hi Manda,

Thanks for the update.  I've been thinking about you.  Monday is pretty good for getting the results but I know it will make for a long weekend.  Choose to be happy when you can.  Have some fun.  (I should point out that sometimes just letting go with a good cry can let out the stress and make it easier to go look for some of that fun)  Scary stuff but you will find you can handle it.  I like that you had a good talk with the doctor.  Sounds like he's doing well for you.  I'm sending all the good thoughts and prayers I can your way.  Hang in there.  Mac

Well I woke up with strep throat. So now I'm on antibiotics. I'm quite miseable. But thankfully I'm on amoxicillin and will be ok to work in 24 hours :)!

Well...that's one way to take your mind off of the test results Wink..(just joking)...Seriously???...Strep throat?? When it rains it pours! I'm so sorry! When our immune system is compromised these darn viruses and bugs going around seem to search us out. Just stay down and rest, and hopefully by Monday you will feel much better. My shingles flared back up last night, so I'm back on pain meds and feeling kind of whooped again. We are a pair, girlfriend...ha! Take care, Love...Sue

Yeah I am really frustrated. Where they did the needle biopsy my entire neck is swollen, so my neck feels like it hurts a lot more. It's all getting harder for meMy I pray I don't get bad test results back. Because lately I have been seeing my boyfriends true colors and its not good. He's been very insensitive. My mom had to come over. She wanted to chew his head off. I hadn't seen him since before my biopsy because he travels. He came home tonight and seriously asked me why I was acting so strange???! And asked me why I was talking like I was!! It's hard I want to be healthy nut my body just hasn't let me. I think it's wearing him down. I just decant do everything and its very defeating. Idk maybe I am crazy and overreacting?

I know it's hard Amanda.  You are young and it is very difficult for anyone, much less one so young.  You or your boyfriend just don't know how to react, it's tough.  You are getting a quick version of a life lesson which takes most of us many years, so hang on and you know you always have us.

Thinking of you, Bill & Becky

Manda,

I know about the pain in the neck, it will go away...however this boyfriend...smh...lol...

Hang in there girlie, things will get better or atleast get some answers. In the meantime surround yourself with those who send you healing thoughts and prayers, negative people don't deserve to be a part of your life.

You are young and are facing some very scary stuff, just the tests alone are more than what some people can endure....Keep positive and healthy

sending you hugs when you need them
