Wondering where I have been? It has been a long two weeks, which started two weeks ago as I went for my annual mammogram. You know, go in once a year get your boobs squeezed and go home. Unless they call you back and tell you they need a few more shots. So you go back and they take more shots and take them back to the radiologist and she asks for a few more and them a few more and then the Doctor wants to speak with you and you hear blah, blah, blah, biopsy, blah blah call surgeon.
And you go in to see the surgeon and he looks at the films and says blah, blah, blah, 35 % risk of
malignancy schedule biopsy. And then comes the surgery where they say blah, blah, this won't hurt, blah OW!!!!!(that was me yelling). And then the wait, the week that takes forever to end.
And then today after sitting in his office for half an hour he walks in the room smiling, saying IT"S NOT CANCER!!
I am sure quite a few of you have gone through this, this is my second time. It never becomes old hat, it was just as scary or even scarier this time. Between my sisters and I we have had a lot of these moments. I always think this time it is going to be the one.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
