Lucky Girl

Got the pathology report back today – that big bad ovarian mass was BENIGN! 

Is there a lovelier word? 

Moments after hearing the news, my joy was somewhat tempered by the thought of all the women who hear the dark side of a biopsy.  Ovarian cancer is the most lethal reproductive cancer.  I teach this stuff, so I know what the worst-case scenario is. 

I feel relieved, grateful, but mostly lucky.

Onward ……


  1. That IS the best word in the world - well, there's a few others too. But in your case it is the best right now. So glad to hear the good news.

  2. Wow! You must feel as if a major burden has been removed from your shoulders. What a relief that must be. May your "luck" continue.

  3. YAY!

    Of course, it's true. Not every woman hears that lovely word. That doesn't make your good news less-good. Congratulations!

  4. I have had a total of eight biopsys over the years. seven were benign. one was cancer. each was a scary experience. the one was teated and i am looking at five years cancer free.

    i know how happy you must feel.

  5. Kim, I am so happy for you. That's the best news in the world!

  6. Hi Kim, I've not had much time lately to read blogs, but this is GREAT news!! Good to hear! And as you say...onward!

  7. That IS wonderful news. It's all uphill from here on kiddo !
