But then we had our consultation and I was over-the-moon at how incredible the doctor and staff were. We were told we needed a few "baseline" tests before discussing a plan, and this staff seemed like a great fit.
I had my first appointment a few weeks ago, and while it was just a simple test and blood draw, I was still waiting for the other shoe to drop. I figured we'd had one good appointment, so this one had to not be so great.
I love it when I'm wrong.
My appointment was fast, efficient, virtually painless (which is saying a lot because of how I am with having blood drawn), but I didn't feel rushed. I was called with same-day results, and so far everything looks good.
Ben and I still have a few more tests to establish our "baseline," and then we'll have a follow-up appointment to discuss everything; however, the more I communicate with the staff, the calmer I feel.
Maybe it is because we kind of have a plan. Maybe it's because the staff and doctor have been wonderful. But I'm a lot less worried and a lot more okay with taking it one day at a time.
So for now? Planning is not so bad after all.
