Plot Twist

On Tuesday I found a lump in my breast. I got into my doctor that day for a breast exam. She confirmed there is something there that shouldn’t be. Tuesday was a rough day. I cried and worried a lot. Yesterday and today, I have a mostly positive outlook on the situation. I’ve also turned my fears into some very dark humor. I’ve found this is one of the ways I cope. It works for me and keeps me laughing.

Instead of Hammer Time! It’s Mammograma Time! I go for my first mammogram today along with an ultrasound. Then my doctor will decide based on that information if a biopsy is needed.

I don’t know if many of my similar aged friends have been through this or not. Is it common? Or something else we don’t talk about? I’m choosing to be grateful for medicine and doctors and excited for a new experience today. I will make the most of it. If I have titty cancer, I’ll deal with that head on too.

Be sure to make the most of the time you have left with me. I’m kidding. That’s a joke. I’m going to be fine…I hope.

  1. Sending my love in the form of prayers. It’s my understanding that all manner (and location) of fibroids are common with your PCOS. Did your Dr mention that? I hope I don’t need to remind you that you are SO loved and that no matter how much good or bad news you have to deal with, you will never do it alone!! Love you something fierce!!


  2. Hi sweety,

    I’ve had another friend go through this process just recently. She found lumps in both breasts and needed biopsy’s in both, and she is just a couple years younger than me. Thankfully they both came back benign. And just yesterday I found out the mother of a friend from work has stage 4 breast cancer. It was just by crazy circumstances that they even caught it. We are also going to be seen by an oncologist for my husband’s mysterious chronic severe anemia. Trent has needed 2 transfusions within the last month. It is hard to face these challenges, but finding strength in humor is one of the best options, other than prayer. Trent and I do it all the time. We found if we laugh, others laugh with us and then the unknown doesn’t seem so scary. You have amazing strength and courage. Sending prayers for you and your hubby that you both retain your humor (dark or otherwise) as you face this next part of the journey. Sending our love always *hugs*
