The Waiting Place

Do you remember that from "Oh, the Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss?

The Waiting Place
...for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or a No or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.
Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite or waiting around for Friday night or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better Break or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.

I have to wait 3 weeks for a test to find out what's wrong with  my body.  Don't worry, I had the ct scan a few days ago and haven't heard back yet so it's not cancer. :)  I've had blood in my urine (and pain!!) for a few months so they're just running all the tests for that.  But the waiting sucks.  Can we just be done already?

  2. Yuck! Sorry you have to wait so long. Hopefully it's something minor that can be fixed easily:). Sending thoughts and prayers your way!

  3. Oh no! I hate the waiting place. Of course I hope that everything will be resolved and that you will be on the mend quickly. I hope your kids are kind to you. And the hubs, too. :) I'll keep you in my prayers.
