Always something! WHen will I get break!!

I am going to try to make this very quick. As it is 5:30 in the morning and i really need to get to work!

I am a few days short of month since last checking in. And Boy has that been a crazy month!
School started was just getting into a routine when three things happened first all most with in with in a 24 hour period. And then continued over a two week stress filled weeks!

1) I got a Major cold. Was feeling Lousy on Thursday (Which was by Back to School Night presentation) by Friday I left work the earliest I could and by Saturday I was running a fairly high fever.
2) Mean while I am having lots of pain in my wrist/thumb being back to school with all that I need to do at work. However i do have a doctor appointment for it the following week.
3) That same Friday that I am not feeling good I get a call from my doctors office...
I have gone in two weeks earlier with pain in left breast. Doc thought about doing a diagnostic Mamogram at the time but decided to just do a regular and if any thing found they would do a diagnostic. So I get the call they want to do the diagnostic which I expected except they want to do it on the RIGHT!!! They ask if they could make the appointment right then so Of course I say yes. This was the 14th of Sept. I make the appointment for the 24th.

The following Friday I go see my doctor for the wrist. Have to take a day off being it was the only appointment I could get and I made it Way back in August. Well I went in thinking there really was nothing they would be able to do. Surgery just did not work! But GOOD NEWS. Surgery worked GREAT the bad news is I did not just have the bone to bone degenerating arthritis I also have de Quervain's tenosynovitis. Which is treatable. And which for the ost part I was already treating. So the doc gives me a shot and an appointment with Ortho to get a custom made brace.
That was Friday I even got out of the doc appointment in enough time to go watch the Space shuttle fly over which was very cool.
So I wait the weekend I go to my Second Mammo appointment. I am nervous int he Past two years I have had three friends diagnosed with Breast Cancer and it does run in my family. At this point I have no info as to what they even found requiring this followup visit. SO good friend goes with me to my appointment. We get there check in and they tell me no my Appointment is Oct 15th!! UMMM I do not think so. There is no way I am waiting a month to have this checked. So long story short, Some one goofed up so I complained could not get in that day but was put in a cancellation list and I was finally seen yesterday. No Official results waiting on those. But Ultra sound tech did say that I just have a couple of cysts. So I think all is okay But I will keep a close on it. No more delaying for me!!

During this time however, I did join a gym. That is all I have done I will go for my first time today I am going with my friend and we are going to take a zumba class.
I wish I could say I have been eatig healthy all this time but truth is no! so today I decided okay I need to take control of this (thus why I am here again) and I decided to weigh my self. When I first stepped on the scale I was thinking to my self. Yeah I am not surprised. But then I did a double look and I am in a different 10 group! I did not gain 4 pounds I LOST!!!.
So that made me very happy and feeling of great hope!
Now if I just could get rid of this migraine that has been haunting me for the past three days! I would be great!!
