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.

So far, we have escaped, I hope you do too!


  1. So glad you had a good report! I can imagine how tramatic and nervewracking that must be.... and the waiting for results. My husband suffered cancer twice, both time very severe. Counting your blessings with you!

  2. Wonderful it wasn't cancer.
    I had this scare a few months ago. I have had the feeling I will get breastcancer for 20 years now, since my mom had it actually. Every year I get that boob-squeeze and 'till this time it was always normal. Just a week before I turned 40 I had to make an ultrasound after the mammogram too. Than I thought too; this is it.... But, same as you, it wasn't.... this time. I hope you (and me) won't have that scare again. And that they find another way to examine those boobs..... (I think that if a man had to go through this, a new thing was invented within a year...;-))

  3. I think with the new digital way they are doing them something different almost always shows up...but they kind of darn if you do and darn if you don't....glad it turned out good....Think positive...xo
