And the waiting game continues. Went to the doc on Friday. He did a biopsy and I won't know anything until this week or sometime next week. This my dear friends....SUCKS!!! Now to really foul up my Friday. Guess who my doctor looked like? Yep...Darren!!! Can you say I just about fell through the freaking floor when he walked in??? Good grief...that man is going to haunt me until the day I die. Only good thing about the whole situation...the doctor touched my boobs more than D ever did. LOL Of course it was all clinical so there wasn't any excitement involved. *sigh* Basically the same as what the last 15 months of my relationship was...I'm used to it. :D So...here I sit waiting with a bruise on my boobie. It's going away though...:) I know...TMI right? Well as my friend Joey says...there is no such thing as TMI among friends. ;)
Frick frick frickity frick!!! I got a call from my gyno's nurse yesterday. Seems that he wants me to go see a general surgeon. Oh joy...oh rapture!!! Not really. The last freaking time I was referred to a general surgeon I had surgery the same day!!! I'm doing everything I can to keep my mind occupied with something other than this stupid lump in my left boob!!! Do you know that you become increasingly aware of your boobs when there is something wrong with them? Huh? Did ya??? I went shopping last night...as we all know that is a great way to get your mind off of ugly things. Well it just made things worse. I wanted to get a suntea jug. The kind that have the little spigot in them. Do you think I found one? NO!!! Only good thing about last night was I bought a new summery-springy kind of suit for a wedding I'm going to in a couple of weeks and a new skirt which may end up taking the place of the summery-springy suit. I must admit I did quite well with my pu…
Well I did something today I've never done before in my life. I went to see a movie by myself. I actually didn't mind it. Small popcorn and a small soda and I was set. I really liked the movie too. :) Yes...it was a chick flick. Would anyone expect anything less from me? LOL I went to see "The Lake House". Some people may not like it but I really did enjoy it. I like Sandra Bullock so of course I liked it. Keanu wasn't too bad either. Can you say "YUMMY!!!"? Good gracious that man is gorgeous. He isn't Gerard but still...*sigh* I did something crazy after the movie. Wanna know? I cut 7 inches off of my hair. I can hear Nell sucking in her breath. LOL It looks great!!! The girl who cut it did an amazing job. I'm very picky about my hair and for me to be happy with a cut is a feat in and of itself. All in all...today was a good day. I was still recovering from the beginnings of heat stroke from yesterday but I had a decent d…

The mind boggles at kids today. The lack of respect for others just blows my mind. Today I was pulling into the park where I live and there were kids in the middle of the road. All of them got out of the way but there was a child in a wagon who gave me an ugly look and stuck her tongue out at me. HUH??? What the frick was the point in that? Then I remembered who the child was. Good grief...nothing will ever change will it? Today was hotter than hades and tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter. I'm sorry but when it gets into the triple digits....DO NOT TELL US HOW FRICKING HOT IT IS!!!! We already know it's hot. Don't make it worse by playing with our heads. Poor Punkin...K's rabbit...was just dying. I brought her inside and let her stay in the house in my bedroom...which is the coolest room in the house. Poor thing. Nothing like wearing a fur coat in 107 degree weather. Her poor little ears were just burning. I'll do the same thing for her tomorro…
It has been a good day. Surprising since I had both boobs compressed to about an inch thick. I truly feel that every man needs to have this test done. If not on their breast then on their Mr. Winkie. They may have a new found respect for what women go through.
The mammogram...well it sucked. As we all know the lump is in the left breast. Can you say that compressing it brought tears to my eyes? I can honestly say that it hurt like hell. While I was there the radiologist felt that it would behoove me to have the right one checked also. You've compressed one very tender boob into a shape it was never meant to be and now you want to do the other one??? Oh sure...why not? I have nothing better to do. Once all of the miniaturizing and compressing of my boobs was done I was sent to ultrasound. I knew that this wasn't going to hurt since I've had ultrasounds before. WRONG!!!!!!! Pressing on said painful boob again with a little wand thing with warmed up KY Gel a…
Still not feeling all that great. My left arm keeps going numb on me. It isn't all the time but it's more often than not. I'm hating this. I just want to feel good again. I hate not knowing. I will know more later this week but it's the waiting that kills me. I have gotten so much support and love the past couple of days that I will never again think that I have not affected anyone's life in a positive way and that no one cares about me. I know I have friends who care but to learn that there are so many out there who truly are concerned about me and love me. It feels good and makes all of the people who don't give a damn about me and are probably hoping I will die from this....not matter in the least. Sometimes you wonder why God does what He does. If a person is open to the lessons in life...you will see just a glimpse of His thought processes. I seem to have 2x4's upside my head to see them but...I do see them. LOL I never did do things the …
Well I made an appointment today. I was hoping I could get it done here in town. Sounds odd huh? Well my gyno is in Wenatchee. After I moved back to helltown I refused to change my doctor. Once you find a good gynecologist...you stick with him/her. Wenatchee is only an hour and 45 minutes away so it's not a huge deal for me. After talking to the nurse..who by the way is the BEST nurse I have ever known. Anyway...she said that I will have a mammogram but I will also have to have an ultrasound. She said they are not approaching this as a routine exam but as a symptomatic exam. I did ask her about the pain and is that usually associated with cancer. She said no. That put me at ease a bit. Not completely mind you but it's not forefront in my mind now. I just wish I knew what was wrong with me. It came from nowhere. I was feeling just fine all day Saturday and then WHAM!!! I was knocked for a loop. I'm having a tough time concentrating which makes work kinda t…
I haven't posted in ages!!! Life has pretty much been really boring. Well...up until last night. It all started with my feeling weak and out of breath. I was having some chest pain and my left arm was going numb. I slept ok and when I got up the pain wasn't as severe. I took a nap after I got up this morning...I'm just exhaused. When I took a shower I thought I would do my monthly self exam. Mainly to rule out any lumps causing the problem. I couldn't rule out any lumps. I found one. I'm not a happy person right now. I'm going to make an appointment to get a mammogram and see my doctor. I truly don't know what is going on right now. All I know is I'm hurting and there is a lump in my left breast. I hate asking for things for myself but I could really use some prayers right now. I'm trying very hard to not be scared or think bad things. It's difficult to do. My biological mother had breast cancer pre-menopause so that is hanging o…
Never in my life have I been happier than what I was yesterday at noon thirty. My girls finally came home. Picking them up at the airport was easier than I thought it was going to be. I did have a bit of a deterrant though. We got to baggage claim and my precious J said "Mommy...where is teddy?" Teddy being her most prized possession other than the baby blanket I made for her. Oh good grief....she had dropped it somewhere. So...being the wonderful and loving mommy that I am...I went back to the ticket counter, got another pass, went through security (which is not a speedy process) and ran towards the gate where I had picked them up. There is a good samaritian out there somewhere because while I was running towards the gates...and I was RUNNING...I looked up on a ledge just near some stairs and what do I see? TEDDY!!! Thank you God!!! So...I head back down to baggage claim and we head to the car. The rest of the trip was uneventful...thank goodness. There was on…
