They’ve ruled out cancer.


The pathology report shows a negative biopsy of the affected area. All her blood tests show normal. Now that we know what it’s not, we have to find out what it is.

She is feeling a bit better today, still gimpy, but nowhere near the level of discomfort as before. But my “shoot first, ask questions later” wife is getting pretty restless. No grass grows under Karen Shinn’s feet, and week in bed at home is more than she can stand. Understandable, especially when you don’t know what’s going on in your own body, and are just told to wait for someone else to figure it out. Activators don’t’ know what this means. In her mind this should have been figured out yesterday.

A consultation with the doctor is scheduled later today to determine if laparoscopy is needed to investigate further.
