Woo hoo!

Guess who dodged the lady part cancer bullet for a third time? Me! The OB/GYN called this morning and the "eight pound cyst-baby" (description courtesy of Stephanie. Maybe I should have a cyst-baby naming contest...) was benign.

Last one, I swear. :)

So, onward to surgery again on Wednesday.

Also, I got to shower today for the first time since Tuesday. I'm almost happier about that than not having cancer. I said, almost! Geez, people.

And, I'm up and around and about to go shopping and am pretty much pain free.

The only bad thing about today is that I accidentally took two doses of stool softener (Look, general anesthesia slows your intestines way down. You'd need it too. ) instead of one dose of stool softener and one dose of Tylenol. That's a mistake I'll be paying for all day.


  1. Congratulations! That's great news. So, the surgery is still on for next week then?

    EEK on your meds. Hope it passes quickly. hehehehe Poop jokes are always funny.

  2. Yeah Brandi!!! that is wondeful news. Okay so onto surgery on Wen...

  3. You are welcome for the name!:)

    WOO HOO TOO!!!!

    I'm so glad! Now you are 8 lbs closer to your goal weight and cancer free. Life is sweet!

  4. Yea!! Glad it was at least a healthy cyst..and if you are looking for names, how about Sissy for the 98 pound one?
    I know about pain med confusion after surgery. After my second one, we finally made a spreadsheet since i was taking about 6 different kinds.

  5. Is anyone as grossed out as I am by all these pictures?? I almost fainted at the first one. (I would NOT make a good doctor.) You should see me cringe at each one.

    THE MATTER OF THE FACT REALLY IS: That you don't have cancer. phew. Blessings. Count your blessings. Good luck with surgery. You almost sound excited this time! :) Prayers comin your way!

  6. looks like tina is not mad at you anymore, she made a comment on your blog!

  7. Huzzah! No cancer AND a shower! You should go buy some lottery tickets.

  8. Okay, so I'm calmer now. No more text pretend cursing.

    Thank goodness all is well in your body. They did check to see if there were any other squatters before they closed you up, right? Evicted all guilty parties?

    Yay! for showers and yay for food and yay for new surgery dates. You'll be on ANTM in no time.

  9. Okay Brandi. I've been out of town for the last couple weeks and am just barely catching up on all that has happened! CRAZY! I am so glad that the cyst-baby was benign and you can go forward with your surgery. Please let me know if you need anything.


Be nice or I'll punch you in the taco.
