In the past month I have been an infrequent participant at SP. Thanks to all those who have sent me goodies and well wishes...they are much appreciated. I have been so happy with all I've accomplished in the past year and a half on this site. I have lost weight, become an exercise disciple, and really paid attention to my diet. So when I went to my last physical I had no reason to suspect that the news wouldn't be all good. Except for that mammogram...There was a suspicious spot and a biopsy was indicated. The first procedure wasn't possible (after-and I'm not exaggerating-about 30 x-rays) and it was recommended that I have surgical biopsy. I swear I am probably so radioactive that I could guide ships to shore by exposing my breast! Last week I had the surgery. I got good news 2 days later-no cancer. But the anxiety and fear I have felt over the past month (from the initial mammo to the results) has made my heart ache for those whose news is not so good. It is so scary! I have never experienced such an event. I swear from here on out that I will be a proponent for causes that look to eradicate this disease. I have participated in Susan B. Korman events before, but they will have a whole new meaning for me now. And to those who go through this after me...my thoughts and prayers are with you!
