Back in 2011 the week that I was first diagnosed with cancer I was also told I needed a hearing aid, and my dog died.
The week in 2014 that I was told my cancer was back and now stage 4 another of our dogs died.
The fact that our sweet timid Jesse died this weekend made Mondays mammogram a little anxiety inducing. I went back for a followup on the last mammogram two weeks ago. They said there was a problem with the images of my dense tissue on my left breast. This did not surprise me because she had trouble working around my port. On monday I went in for the followup and she did a lot of images of the left and then said “Alright let us see if we can get some better pictures of those spots on the right” Uh…..what spots? Apparently someone forgot to mention that they found a cluster of spots in my right breast very close to the chest wall. Took more pictures and the Dr labeled them as probable benign calcifications. Back in six months. I am really a little nervous about seeing my Infectious Disease doctor on Thursday. Hopefully nothing new there!
My daughter and I are going away for an overnight on Saturday. Looking forward to spending time with her. I am so lucky that I love her so much.
