Great Tuesday

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Had to go into the city today . . . a one hour drive, each way. Thankfully I had sunshine most of the way in, and no crazy drivers. It wasn't until I was grocery shopping that it started raining.

One of the highlights of the day was the visit with the surgeon. A follow-up after mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy. My Dr didn't want to take responsibility for giving me an 'all clear' report, so he essentially passed the buck (well, lots of bucks) on to a surgeon.

So, I met with the surgeon today and was told that after looking at all the previous tests results that there is NOTHING to be concerned about. NOTHING to hint at the "C" word.

She recommends that I follow though with getting mammograms once a year, which is typical for women my age.

Huge exhale and an even bigger THANK YOU LORD!

Then it was time for lunch. Rather than doing another Subway salad, I decided to go to Sizzler. Had a 6 oz steak, baked potato and salad. When the waitress brought that yummy garlic toast, I said "Oh, no thank you." Then she asked if I wanted some regular rolls . . . . no thank you. I ate a ton of salad, so I didn't have room for dessert! I did it!!! I said NO!

All in all it was a great day!

    Sounds like a REALLY great day. I am sure it's nice to put the medical stuff behind you. Good for you turning down the bread, and you had a great meal without it.
    I had a good day too! Stayed on track while having my kids and their partners for dinner. I underprepared on quantities, but it just made it easier for me to stay on track and no one went home hungry. No leftovers though.
    Picked up groceries today and got a nice plump eggplant. Will bake it up tomorrow night.
    Hope you have a great Wednesday !
