Hello friends and Happy Friday!
Sorry to keep everyone hanging in regards to my post yesterday (thank for your sweet words and prayers :)) I haven't been able to update sooner because I've been working from home yesterday and today AND Mia is sick! :( Just a cold, but her nose and eyes are leaking like faucets, so trying to balance that, with actually getting work done, it's a hard balance! :) But I am SO thankful to have a job where I can work from home when need be.
BUT, back to my update...the surgeon told me yesterday that he does not think it's a hernia. He said he thinks it's a pulled muscle or strain. I have never heard of a pulled muscle or strain causing a "lump" (mass, whatever you want to call it) however, I'm not a doctor, so I'll take his word for it .Dr. F said it could take 2-3 weeks for it to heal, so that's what I'll do...I'll take it easy, and wait 2-3 weeks, BUT you better believe if this time next month that lump is still there I will be going back to my doctor and asking for a second opinion. I tend to let things go when it comes to myself (I think us mommies just naturally put ourselves 3rd, 4th, 5th down the list) but with something like a mass, that's just not something I'm going to mess with. Don't get me wrong, I want nothing more then for this to be nothing at all but I'm still going to be keeping an eye on it, and worrying about myself! :)
Take care friends and have a great weekend! I have to get back to work! :(
And for good measure...
