First Hematologist appointment

My red blood cell count has been getting higher the past few months and so I went in to see about getting a diagnosis as to why on Monday. It was my first appointment of this type ever and I was a bit more nervous than usual. As I sat there surrounded by cancer pamphlets and recovery magazines, I started to get a sinking feeling in my gut. Not to mention all the people (no offense to anyone) in the waiting room were all older and or coughing like they had bust a lung! Ok not all were coughing, but enough to make me notice that is for sure.

They took my blood all five vials of it as well as another urine sample. This is after I talked with the doctor who asked me tons of questions which is to be expected I guess, neverless I still felt probed and uncomfortable. He talked to me about the past tests being a false positive, the chance that I am one of those people who's blood holds on to more oxygen or of course the chances of cancer. He does not think that cancer is the issue which of course makes me feel better, but my mind is wandering more than I would like at this point! If this blood test comes back over 16.5 than I will be back in for further testing, if not than I will come back in three months.

If you would not mind I would appreciate any good thoughts, vibes and prayers. Which ever it is that you feel most comfortable with of course. I will of course update when I have any news. I wish you all the best.


  1. All of the above: good thoughts, prayers vibes. That sucks when your thinking actually makes you more paranoid. I do it all the time. I think most of us do. Good luck. I bet your more normal than you knew, lol

  2. I'm thinking of you! I'm sure everything will be okay, I've been feeling very healthy and we are almost twins! lol love ya girl!
