I am just kind of walking around, thinking of what COULD have been, how my life would change if my tests turned out differently. They could in the future, but I let God take care of that.. I do ponder what if's, a LOT.. I am a ponderer,, always did sit and wonder, daydream,,

I feel my Dad's presence every single day,, we are so much alike, when he died, I was relieved and happy for him, but so miss his everyday wisdom and laugh, his help. When I was getting my ultrasound, I knew he was in the room with me, as was my Savior,, both of them one on either side, ,, knowing the outcome, sending me there to be taken care of by a skilled medical staff. I was anxious, but not afraid,, .. now I can start to crank up my everyday life again,, but more aware of my fragile mortality. I am ready to be rewarded, but want to see so much more before I leave.
Nothing profound, but truthful, humble, and selfless leaders to guide us back to our country.
and knee socks and barrettes coming back into style.
Nothing major...

The BIG Whew!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

I slept well last night after leaving my ultrasound appointment. The doctor read it while I was still there, in fact, he waited for the tech to bring it to him across the hall and read it on the spot so I could leave there breathing normally.
I do not have breast cancer. 'Nuff said,, It is all I needed to hear as I darned near flew out of the office.
Ironically, it is Breast Cancer Awareness month with runners, posters, pink this and that. I do not need this or that, I am completely aware of it now and forever. My aunt was only 67 years old when she died,, lost her right breast too..
It seems like I dodge a bullet with one disease and I manage to scoop up another... somebody must think I lead a boring life...not anymore..

I want to thank every single person who prayed for me and sent thoughts and goodies to cheer me up. I could not get better friends and support. My DD is also a great supporter,, the only one in my family...
Thank you Sparkers for taking time out of your precious life to help me get through this terrifying time. I know it will come back to all of you a hundredfold.. Love you all, Linda

And I love that you can make jokes at your own expense ... laughter is surely the best medicine, and a gift from Heaven!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Glad things went well, my friend. If there's anything I can do from here, holler, ok? And I mean anything! (I spend my whole winter crafting, knitting, crocheting, tatting, etc. So if there's something that would cheer you up, just ask!) I'm going to tat myself a Christmas doily this year, and I've got a whole tub full of dish towels to crochet the tops on for hanging them from cabinets and appliances (handy little things, lol) and I have to remember to make potholders before Thanksgiving. Just let me know emoticon have a wonderful week!

    I'm so glad for you. I had a cancer scare (colon) that required several tests (2 were invasive) that had me so terrified, I started doing things I'd always meant to do. People talk about Bucket List after that film but this was years ago. I even travelled to another country (I've lived in other countries but this was a specific trip I felt I needed to do in my lifetime) some months after. When you get a bad scare, it's life-changing, too.

Leaving for my targeted ultrasound in a little while. I am hopeful that I am not following in the footsteps of two of my maternal aunts. Breast cancer is NOT on my list of choices.

    Whew. I make more than my share of mistakes; just not sure if my mistake is in trying to improve things, or in letting things go on as usual. emoticon
