I don't know if anyone else does this, but the only way that I can cope with the stress of potential bad news is to run every scenario that could possibly come up through my head. In doing that, I feel I have at least some control of the situation. I look at all the 'what ifs' and even plan on what my response will be given each possibility. I do this for my self preservation and to try and show strength when it's needed. I'm going with Patty Lou to see the Dr. tomorrow.(Tuesday) It will be a few days until we know the results, a long wait, I'm sure. I've prepared myself for the worst, but I'm hoping for the best. Even though my insides are a churning mess, I will be strong, I will be strong.
