Checked the mail and there it was. A message signed by my dashing young fibroid doctor (AKA Mighty Mouse):
I am happy to inform you that your recent Pap smear returned within normal limits.
These results are from an exam I had about 3 weeks ago. Everything is fine. My fibroids are shrinking. My symptoms have vastly improved. I feel well. In fact, I’m not scheduled for another exam by my GYN until next year. This ushers in my return to normalcy. I now only require annual exams like the rest of planet.
Still have a couple of tasks to complete (like scheduling my mammogram and deciding on birth control) but it is GREAT to be physically more normal. My body, mind, and spirit are all thankful.
