My Mom had to go to the Emergency room last night because she was having a bad pain in her side. They did a cat scan and she has a mass on one of her ovaries and it could even possibly be cancer. She has to have an operation to remove it. She has to make an appointment with her doctor on Tuesday so they can plan when to do it. Needless to say, everyone is scared. Add this in with my grandma needing surgery to remove polyps on her colon and just...ahhhhhhh.
You could say that our immediate family has been lucky, no one has really needed any surgeries but now BOOM, two people dear to my heart need it. I knew about my Grandma's first but it didn't bother me a whole lot yet because the date for her to do it seemed so far off. I knew that I would get more upset when she went actually went in but I was trying not to think about it right now. But my Mom.... my Mom and surgery... that really scares the crud out of me. I am really close to my Mom, even more so since she moved in 4 years ago.
Of course I can't act that upset on the outside, for one thing it wouldn't do much good and I don't want to worry that kids. We don't know when she'll have it yet but still.... I am scared.
