A piece of not so good news

Took a while to update the blog with how it went with the gynae last week. It was not a good start coz I was poked quite a few times for blood test since the nurse couldn’t find my veins. She ended up taking blood from the back of my palms ok! Ouch!

Did pap smear and breast scan with the lady gynae. To those who wonder how it feels when you have your pap smear done, trust me, it was nothing. Just put aside the ‘malu-malu’ feeling, it’ll be a breeze for you. It was not painful, ticklish etc. Was also glad that it was just a breast scan that I had to go through and not mammogram! I was pretty nervous at first when I was told that I had to do breast screening. Having your boobies compressed with some machine is not fun ok!

The not so good start ended with a not so good end. The ultrasound scan showed that I had two 4cm fibroids in the uterus. They have to be removed and it’s gotta be through a myomectomy, probably via abdominal incision as the kinda fibroid that I have is actually submucous fibroid, meaning fibroid that develop in the muscle underneath the inner lining of the womb. Other types of fibroids, depending where they grow, are called subserous, intramural or cervical fibroids. I was fighting back tears in front of the gynae when I heard all the details about fibroids from her. Wished that hubby was around. But then again I knew I’d wail like a baby if he’s around. Baguslah I was alone at that time. If not, people will look at me semacam aje. Dahle at that time the waiting hall was full of preggers ladies! Tengok orang menangis teresak-esak sungguhlah tidak memberansangkan bagi orang mengandung yang nak jumpa the gynae, kan?

As of now, I’ve come to terms with what’s happening to me. Told myself, fibroids are not life threatening and cancerous. All I have to do is get a second opinion from another gynae, get those fibroids removed and then start trying to make me and hubby a heir to our fortune (?!) Haha.

Anyway, for more information on fibroids, you can check out It's my fave site so far.

Cuti-cuti Malaysia (?)

Me and hubby had already applied for leave next Friday. We planned to go for a short getaway but have yet to determine the destination. I've spent hours on the internet to spot good place in the country for our R&R but still have not found any that could 'wow' us! Help!

Weekend @ Pavilion

Went shopping at the Pavilion today to get some stuff from Mercato (it's more or less like The Grocer in Bangsar Village) because I promised Hubby to make him Spaghetti Aglio Olio for lunch tomorrow. Got all the stuff I wanted but what I'm most happy about today is because of the gift that I got from Hubby dearest..

It's Burgundy
It looks sleek and sophisticated
It's my new sunnies :)
Thanks Sayang for 'belanja'ing me..Love ya! Will masak sedap-sedap for you tomorrow ok?
