No, I am not a Christian (I was in what feels like a previous life). I don’t see how that is really relevant to my wanting to preserve my life by not “waiting a while to make sure”. I am not even sure what that means, because this can really only end in one of two ways. If I were still, I am fairly confident that it wouldn’t change my thoughts on self preservation.
My doc and I, we chatted. A lot. He, who had an impressive number of pretty degrees and Army training certificates on his wall, seems to think it is best if we deal with this right now, since waiting could in fact cause irreparable damage to me and/or my fallopian tubes. No offense, but your lack of OB/GYN training doesn’t lift the validity of your opinion in my mind’s eye. I agree with doc. I have no desire to wait around and see if this thing will or will not kill me. It has violated my space, my body, and threatened my life. It has declared war on my body and I see fit to fight back as if my life were on the line, which it is. The doc is my Admiral, and we have, together, decided that this is the best thing to preserve my life, and my fertility, which I hope to be able to use again one day.
So, I smile and appreciate your concern and thank you for your well wishing and promise of prayers, way too polite to cause any kind of public commotion. Our kids get a long and play well together, so let’s leave it at that, shall we?
