lumps and bruises

Tomorrow, I go to the nearest breast health center.

I found a lump the other day, a crazy painful one, and was seen at the clinic today regarding it. The doctor threw around a couple of centimeters and was super glad that it moved, but also said that it felt a bit firmer than a cyst, so that I need to have it checked out via mammogram and ultrasound.

Again.

Because I’ve been here/done this back in ’09 and was probably less freaked out then than I am now. Maybe because of all the breastfeeding that was going on back then with two babies…it seemed totally normal to have lumps and bruises of all varieties.

So I sat in the waiting room today, texting a friend, shaking and on the verge of passing out/throwing up/having a heart attack and so ready to hear the worst news ever.

I know, but it’s how I roll.

My husband likes to tell me that I’m my own worst enemy, and as much as I hate to hear it, I know it’s true.

But I definitely feel a little better about it tonight.

Now don’t go getting too freaked out, ’cause this town isn’t big enough for the two of us. But I certainly wouldn’t mind your prayers!

And you bet your butt I’ll keep you updated.

  1. Don’t be anxious girly! I know, easier said than done. I’m sorry you have to deal with this again. Prayers your way and hugs too. If my back ever stops acting like someone w/ turrets, you know me and you ought to have a coffee or two or three…lol. We’ll leave the boys to deal. What would they do if we both croaked? Seriously…I feel like I have to keep going just for the kids. I’m so prideful. Anyway, I get the drift and I’m praying for good results your way.
