Yes, Mary, the waiting can be horrendous! The very best thing you can do right now, today, is to stay as busy as you can to entertain your brain. Worrying won't change anything anyway. The way to stop worrying is to stay busy. Being alone a good part of the time during my days before treatment began, it was my coping mechanism, and it really does work. One doesn't have to spend any money to stay busy.
Hang in there! You'll do just fine.
