And the results are in

Yes! Today is a good day – today I receive the exact kind of new you want to hear: Good results. Woohoo! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!

Dr Canada called this morning – it being early morning, I was just waking from my sleep and slipping on a bathrobe, therefore my mom took the call.


“Hello, is this Catherine?”


“Who am I speaking with?”

Now that is funny, cause he called our house and was asking who he was speaking with – but you know what, I love that assertive behaviour in a doctor. Generally it means they know what they are doing, or at least feel confident in their actions. And from what I can tell, that’s a good thing. Besides, we already know that Dr Canada is a great guy, so his direct early-morning questioning might have surprised my mom, but everything was resolved as soon as he actually said who he was – i.e. Dr Canada calling with my results.

So my mom says she’s “Marcelle, Catherine’s mother.” And he says, “Oh great – well you can pass along the news.” Apparently my scans came up clear except for a cyst on my right ovary. And my mom was like, “it is really a cyst?” and he says, “yes, it is.” Or something like that. At this point I was heading toward the upstairs washroom with my bathrobe wrapped tight, so I never actually participated in this conversation and am totally fabricating this dialogue based on the summary provided by my mother.

Anyhow – becuase of the cyst I’ll have another scan in December. I guess this time instead of walking into a gross old waiting room decked out with Halloween cobwebs and skeletons, it’ll instead have tinsel and a plastic tree.

Hopefully by then the cyst will have gone away, away, away. I am hoping, cause I’d hate there to be any reason for further investigations.

But you know what – yes, they found a cyst (pretty normal stuff, I think), but hey: NO CANCER.


Feel free to join me in a happy dance. I’ll tell you what, this morning was quite a relief. Oh my goodness, eh, what good news today. I hope good news comes your way too. Good news for everyone! They don’t charge for this stuff.

  1. Hooray! Hooray! Hooray! Doing the happy dance for you “Philly style!” (Urban, edgy, finishing with a traditional Mummers Strut). LOL I also went for a follow-up this week and all good news too! (Brief pause while you do the happy dance in a polite, friendly Canadian way…) 😀
