Hey ladies, I am back online!

As Maggie told you, the surgeon was able to get a biopsy, thank God. He said he would see me in a couple of weeks to discuss the surgery and the pathology. So now we hurry up and wait.
Because my DH is 100% disabled from his militry service while in Viet Nam, I am also qualified to get health care at the MPLS VA Hospital. It is kind of complicated in that I am not allowed to join the Clinic for Women. There are too many female soldiers that need the spots, as it should be. But I am able to go through Urgent Care and be seen that way. One thing that I have found is that there is some evidence of the good ole boy network being alive and well in some of these physicians and the manner in which they deal with non-military female patients. Now, there was a time when some women could be patted on the head and told to let the Doc do the worrying, everything was fine, the Doc knows best. Well it is not that time and I am sure as hell not one of those women! Many on the urology team felt we should just wait and watch the tumor for another 6 months. After the 2nd oppinion I insisted the tumor be taken out. What I received was no eye contact, promises that it was not malignant, and an ass who I swear was about to try to pat me on the head! I got my way, but now I am going to have to wait for the results.
Please don't misunderstand me, I am so grateful to have the VA. I just don't like to be condescended to.
Back to you guys, because of your prayers and good wishes, and the good energy you sent my way, I am confident that the results I get will be great. I have said it b4 and will continue to say that all of you ladies are the best!
