Gratitude for a clean breast MRI.

Sunday, August 25, 2013

The last couple of weeks have made me very nervous. First a mammogram-after 4 years. Yes, I know I should take care of myself, but being a full time sole caregiver makes things tough. A call back to go get an ultrasound. Never got a call back before. Now I am really nervous. Then there was a denser than normal area on the ultrasound so possibly a biopsy. But the doctor said he'd try an MRI first. Gratefully, I got a phone call yesterday saying the MRI was clean.

I told myself not to be nervous till all the tests were done. I was amazingly calm but it was always in the back of my mind.

I said hundreds of Our Fathers and Hail Mary's before the tests now I am saying them again in gratitude.

Bless you all who have actually gone through the treatments and trauma.

    Chris, so happy that you got good results. I go for my mammogram next week. I always go during the month of my birthday along with my physical so this way I don't forget. Please start making it a habit. I never use to pay attention to taking care of myself but since I started using my birth month as a reminder to get all that stuff taken care of, I always pay attention to my health.
Please take care of yourself Chris, because we care about you!!

Hugs
Danlin

    Pencil in next year's appointment reminder right now, please! If you don't take good care of yourself, you won't be able to be a good caretaker later. So glad it turned out OK!

    Think about it this way: better to have them double check a suspicious area and be worried about it for a few days/weeks until you get the okay than for them to ignore the beginning of malignant cancer and allow it to grow for months or years before it's found.

Glad your scans came back okay.

    Chris, I'm so grateful that you're 'clean'. I add my endorsement to other's comments - take care of you, or you'll be no good to take care of your DH. I know that's easier said than done. I'm praying for you.

I know that anxiety, I've had callbacks a couple of times, fortunately both times everything was OK.
