When negative is good!!

Thursday, February 23, 2012

This morning I went for my annual mammogram.

Breast cancer has already affected my family - both my sister and my aunt have had surgery and I have lost two close friends to this insidious disease, so I am always a little apprehensive when going for the annual test.

I always participate in the walks that are held to raise funds for research - together, we can find a cure!

However, the news today was good - the test was negative. emoticon

Please make sure that you have all the annual checks - I know that the test can be uncomfortable - but the alternative - to be diagnosed with breast cancer is far worse.

After the good news, I went off to have a massage - a gift voucher which my family gave me for Christmas - now I am floating in a dreamy cloud of bliss - I might even indulge in a bubble bath to end a great day!!

Have a great evening my sparkie friends.

    As long as the attitude of the person doing it is positive, I usually don't mind the uncomfortable seconds.

Wonderful news on the negative!

Those are the best negatives - you're not sick, you're not in danger.
