Good news for me.

Friday, September 06, 2013

I am feeling pretty good this week. It started off pretty scary.

I got news last week during my physical that I had a lump in my left breast. I had never felt it before and the doc assured me she was only being super cautious. I was ok with that for a little bit. I had to battle my stupid insurance company in order to get a mammo. They weren't really thrilled about it because I am not 40 yet. So irritating! No one in the mammo office or my doc's office could believe my insurance company's attitude. I had to fight for it, even though I am 5 weeks from being 40!

So, I finally had the mammo. All is clear. Nothing to report, thank GOD!

I feel so so relieved. Of course, all those "what ifs...." were haunting me. I kept looking at my boys and thinking about missing out on raising them. It was pretty terrible and difficult.

Thank GOD that is over.

My headaches are still lingering, fewer and farther now. I think the tension in my life has been tremendously cut. My boys new school is amazing and I am so grateful that I fought hard to get them out of the old school and into the new one. We went to the book fair and "Reading Roundup" at school last night and it was sooooo awesome! What a great school. The boys have all kinds of new friends. I am so relieved. I am also the new media center assistant for the second grade! I am so excited! I tutored at the last school and loved it. Now I get to help out the adorable second graders in the library!! Woohoo! I love books and kids! This is so exciting!

I have been working out like a mad woman the last month. I have finally lost 8 pounds. This week tho, nothing. No gain either, so that's good. And a miracle really. We went out of town to visit family and they always feed us like crazy. It was a good visit and kinda sad. My hubs two grandmothers are both in homes now and one house has to be cleaned out. It was sad to see the house empty.

No more chasing chickens with the boys and the dogs. No more shooting guns. Well, I don't shoot the guns. I use a compound bow. (In terms of the Walking Dead, I am much more likely to be Daryl than Rick.) I will miss all that fun.

She gave me her vanity. It's so special to me now!

I am eating much better too. I am really having to watch what I eat. My glucose was ok, not pre-diabetes but it's close enough to annoy me.

Today I am having lunch with a good friend and I having the salad. I can't wait to catch up with her!

I finished Buffy and well, started Angel. I really did not like that show as much as Buffy. Buffy's hard to compete with. I am now watching Supernatural and I loved that show but didn't see the lastest seasons so I am catching up.

Tomorrow is my four mile hike with my girlfriends! I love to catching up on their lives and being outside!

    Have fun tomorrow.

I'm the opposite of you - I liked Buffy (still do, am rewatching now) but Angel is where my heart really is.

I'm so glad your mammo came out ok. I turned 40 last spring so I'll have to go for one this fall when I have my regular appointment. I had a scare in my 20s though, and it wasn't fun. The doctor thought she detected something be since I was so young she sent me for an ultrasound instead of a mammogram. Everything came out ok, but I definitely had some "what if" moments.

    So glad you are having a good week! Hope it continues for you! (And wow with the insurance company.... it shouldn't matter how old you are if you have a lump! (I work in the radiology department, so Im not just saying that to agree, lol.))

Have a great weekend!
