i picked up katherine from school yesterday afternoon, and we went out for an early dinner... as john was going to go watch our high school's regional basketball game an hour away from home. we were eating and talking when my cell phone rang.
i don't usually take my cell phone into restaurants with me unless i am expecting an important call. well, yesterday i was. i had waited all day for the call from my dermatologist about the excision she had done on my back a couple of weeks ago.
i answered, "hello???"
"dana?, this is (insert name) calling from owensboro dermatology." (it still makes me go :/ when people mispronounce my name.)
"yes???" i said.
"i just wanted to call and let you know that the doctor..." (this was where she started reading what the doctor had advised me to do in regards to the places on my face...). after reading these directions to me, she reminded me that i have recheck appointment in two weeks.
then there was silence...
"and what about the place on my back???" i inquired.
(that WAS the reason for my call-in to the doctor, yesterday:?)
"oh... it's benign," she finally answered... like, 'no big deal...'.
it wouldn't have been a very big deal to me either except that the last time i had had an excision, i had to return for a re-excision...
as the results had NOT been benign.
i was immediately beyond thrilled that i didn't have to go back to the office for anything more than a recheck:D
"ok, thank you." i said; and then i ended the call.
thank You, GOD!!! i thought to myself:)
after i told her my news,
katherine gave me a high five;
and we finished our meals:b
love and God's blessings to you ALL, too,
