An Update

I went in yesterday for my biopsy. The nice lady did an ultrasound on my arm pit for about 10 minutes, looking thoroughly and digging deeply to get the best look in there. She then left the room to get the radiologist, while I laid there, anxiously awaiting what was about to happen. I looked over at the screen and saw this:
Well now I'm no expert by any means, but those two things there on the left looked scary to me. I held my breath until the dr. came into the room... and with a smile said everything looked absolutely normal!

Whew! I can't begin to tell you the relief I feel. I immediately hugged my dear friend who came with me and called hubby up in (happy) tears to tell him the news. I feel so lucky and blessed right now that I don't have to travel back down that road again. Last night we celebrated with yummy cupcakes. Life (and health) should never, ever be taken for granted.

Hi there! I have been following your blog for a long time (found you through TB), and I just wanted to say how happy I am for you! What wonderful news! My mother battled stage 3 breast cancer when I was a teen and she has had several appointments like yours, they all (thankfully) turned out just fine but that scary moment of not knowing is horrible. SO happy to hear you are doing well. Wishing you many years of continued health! :)

That's great!! I've been praying for you. I go in Friday for my annual ct-scan for the Hodgkins, but I went last week for a mammo and they found a nodule. So after the ct-scan I have to go have a diagnostic mammo. I hope I can find out something about the mammo immediately. Ugh, I hate scans so much, but they are so needed for peeps like us!
