All Functions Normal

When I went to see my doctor in February we talked about my liver.
And decided that we would do a liver function test but I wanted to wait until it had been a full year of not drinking before I went.
I guess for me that was the magic number.
I wanted one full year of my liver living clean.
I have been incredibly worried and scared.
I had from mid-July onward and finally I broke down on Monday and went in at 7:30 a.m.
I had a doctor call that afternoon and I mentioned that I had only just gone in for the test.
It is not just the alcohol that my liver has had to contend with.
I began taking pills in 1999.
Summer of.
And while the addiction to T1’s grew over time and I would stop taking them for a period only to start again.
That was a lot of acetaminophen over a long long time period.
Add in the alcohol too and well…..
I never heard back from the doctor Monday so I was going with the old adage no news is good news.
Yesterday morning I was sitting here messaging with M and my phone pinged off that I had a new text message at the same time that my notification also went off for my email.
Now generally the only other times it does this is when I have dental appointments scheduled/doctor appointments or my hydro bill shows up.
I flicked open my messages and my heart stalled 😱😱😱😱:
You have received a new message from……
Use your one time code to log in.
I clicked on the link.
I entered in my one time code.
I entered in my birthday.
I hesitated before I hit send because my natural instinct was to bury my head in the sand.
I did not want to know.
I was sure that it had to be bad news.
Why else would I have received a text?
When I opened up the message the first words I saw were Good News!
Followed by your liver functions are all normal.
I burst into tears. 😭😭😭😭
Like ugly sobbing and I called M.
Who was soaking in the tub and snarled at me demanding to know why I was calling to disturb her zen bath time.🛀🛀🛁
I am bawling my eyes out barely able to talk which then leads to slight panic on M’s end.
Finally I was able to stutter out it was a good cry and told her why.
Read her my numbers.

She promised to check them out at work last night but she had a busy crazy night so I will let it slide for now. 😂😂😂😂
I called mom too and scared her.
Even as I sit here writing this I have tears rolling down my cheeks.
All the big ones have been checked off the list.
Brain.
Kidneys.
Liver.
Internal female stuff.
I have a year’s reprieve before I get to smoosh my boobs and get a finger up the…..
