I had a mammogram and breast ultrasound back on April 23 and had a call from my doctor’s office saying they wanted to follow up. It was a, “No hurry, come in when you can. It is not urgent”. I made an appointment for the following week but had to miss it because of work. I really thought nothing of it and was not even going to re-schedule because of the, “no hurry,come in when you can…”. I only called because I was wondering if I was going to be charged for the missed appointment. The scheduler that answered the phone asked me when I wanted to come in. Anyway, long story short I went in today and was stunned with the results. Actually, I don’t really understand the results except there are numerous concerns and signs that things are not right. I am scheduled to see a surgeon who will do a biopsy and likely surgery (but not a mastectomy) to remove whatever it is that is there that is not supposed to be there and then breast reconstruction surgery. It is my understanding that whatever is there should not be there and it is a cancer risk so best to remove it. Yes, I am just as confused.
We were out in the yard today weeding and planting. It is such a nice day. We went to the nursery the a couple of weeks back and I bought plants for a hanging basket. A few years ago I found a huge old wooden tool box so I added flowers to that as well. I removed the hand stitched quilt from our bed and washed it and now it is hanging on the line outside. There are steaks marinating in wine and Norbert just climbed into a box that it too small for him. With all the information I got on my mom’s side of the family on our trip I am adding it to Ancestry.com and as fast as I can add it the faster new information comes up.
When I came home and told my husband about the mammogram he was so concerned and loving. I know we have had our problems but at the end of the day I do not know what I would do without him. When the doctor was trying to explain to me what was going on all I could think was I needed my husband. he would make everything OK.
*Addendum – Norbert just burst the box that he was forcing his body into. Have I ever mentioned he is a very big cat? He weighs 12 pounds. 12 pound cats don’t fit all that well in shoe boxes so he made it bigger.
