this time tomorrow

[isn't she beautiful? My St.Therese]

yes, tomorrow I will get the results of the biopsy back. will it be cancer? I don't know.

today, the nurse called to put my appointment to an earlier time slot and I went into panic mode..
my mind going places of 'them needing more time with me to go through what will happen next'.
the first time all week I have been afraid.
the past week, I have embraced what is happening to me.
every now and then, I felt a fear, but soon brushed that aside.

I made myself some lunch and went outside to sit on my verandah. and as I did, a kookaburra flew past and sat on the fence. just looking at me. I haven't seen one in my garden since November. I always take this as a sign from my dad. he loved the bird and every time something happens in my life - good or bad, a kookaburra shows up.
I am scared. he is with me.

I sat and allowed the tears to fall, with that awful lump of fear in my chest. knowing that what will be will be, tears cannot change it.

the sensible self tells me that even if it is cancer, the prognosis is good as it is very early.

I look at my St.Therese picture and I feel reassurance that I am ok. ... but the human self is scared. I look at my St.Therese picture and hear whispers of voices telling me not to worry. that I am not alone.

I hate waiting.
I will be happy this time tomorrow, when at least I will know one way or the other. and I will go from there.

Robyn, sending you lots of love your way! Praying the results are of a good report.

Diva Kreszl said...

perhaps your Dad coming to sit with you in the form of the Kookabura is His way of telling you not to worry that he is with you dear one, I shall be praying for you as always, can you feel it?

Tinker said...

We used to sing a song about the kookaburra when I was in Girl Scouts. Though I've never been lucky enough to see one, I've always liked the idea of them. That seems as though it might be very comforting to have one show up for you right now.
Sending good thoughts your way, Robyn and lots of prayers too.

It's ok to cry said...

Hi, I read your blog today and I know exactly how you feel. I just don't know what to say and I find it unreal that I sat in the same shoes as you are and I just don't know what to say. I cried as I read it thinking of what all I have been thru and what you are feeling. No matter what anyone said or did, the cards I got, the gifts I got, the phone calls I got, and even the love and prayers, I could not feel it. Then I did, I felt it all and it felt so good. Allow yourself to feel it, think about it,,it will help you thru these waits. That is the worse part...wait. Try to find some good out of it and hold onto that. I pray for a good report tomorrow, I pray for arms to wrapped around you and walk along side you. My heart is very heavy for you and everyone that goes thru this time..You have a begun your journey along side me and many more. I am with all hope that your journey is one of the better ones...Im here if you ever need to talk...always Judy

I'm reading this out of sequence, I've already seen the results posted today.
But for a moment there, I was in tears with you, wishing I could sit with you and hold your hand.
As someone once said the worst fear is fear itself...
