Here we go again

This is not the post I thought I would be writing. I went in for my three year scans the same way I’ve walked into the last one, no anxiety, no worry and feeling good. Unfortunately, that did not last. I was supposed to have my results appointment two days later but received a call … Continue reading Here we go again
