I woke up this morning feeling sad and overwhelmed. My breasts were sore but according to any information I looked up regarding a core needle biopsy it says I shouldn’t have any pain and can “resume normal activities immediately”. I do know I am a big baby and a hypochondriac but I had a huge needle inserted into each breast 3 times. How can I not be sore the next day? I think the biggest part is the stress of it all.
Today I had to call the BC Cancer Agency and the nurse I spoke to was so helpful. According to my current diagnosis this is probably not cancer but a sort of pre-cancer. But that is not the right word either. She said is sounds like something that could turn into cancer and needs to be watched carefully. Sometimes in these cases they do remove the breasts if a cancer diagnosis is likely. Anyway, I really don’t know and I am just waiting for a call from the surgeon to discuss my options.
The Next Day...
I started that post yesterday and never finished it. Today I was up early for work. As the weather gets warmer it is getting harder to sleep in. Never will I be a morning person but it is nice that the sun is up early and our days are so much longer. Those short 8 and 9 hour days are hard to get through.
Today I finished the rest of my planting…. I think. As it is with most gardeners you see a space anywhere and what better way to fill it than with more flowers. I took some pictures but right now I am outside on my deck and don’t want to take the 25 steps to go and get my camera to put them on my computer. Maybe later. Oh, and since I put the bells up we haven’t seen much of those asshole starlings. The hummingbirds, chickadees and finches are back.
My husband heard back from his extended family. It turns out he does have an aunt that is still living and they have been e mailing back and forth. She and her daughters sound lovely. We are considering going to Ontario to visit them in late September or early October.
Well, I need to do some schoolwork. I have been slacking since the nice weather came along. It is 27 at our house today and it is becoming far too easy to not do anything.
OK, I lied. Here are some of my planters. As I said, they are all rather scraggly because they just were planted but I have high hopes for them.
My husband found this old milking pail at the Habitat for Humanity thrift store. It makes a great planter.
As I said, scraggly but holding potential. There a several other pictures but each picture is taking 5 minutes to load and I got stuff to do.
