I just didn't really care.

One of the joys of coming home from vacation is the lovely pile of mail that awaits. Bill, bill, impersonal letter from my local MPP, bill, IKEA catalogue, pizza flyers, coupon, bill, oh wait what's this? A letter from the hospital where I had my mammogram last month.

Oh.
Dear Ms. Katitude

On review of your recent mammogram, the radiologist has requested that you return for additional imaging.

The following date and time has been booked for you:
tuesday August 21, 2:30 and 3:00 pm

Please call to confirm acceptance.

Ok, that's not so bad.

So I call to confirm, no biggie, another mammogram (fucking yay), until I ask the receptionist, so why the two appointment times? Typo?

Her tone changes to something I still can't put my finger on. "The second time is for an ultrasound of your left breast."

Oh.

Left side. Where I still have chest pains that aren't cardio-related.

The intellectual side is saying relax, it's likely nothing, they did say that since they had no baseline for you on file that they might have to run another. However, the emotional side remembers Mum, who by the time she was the age I am now had a double mastectomy and a few rounds of chemo under her belt.

I've managed to avoid thinking about it, but the appointments are tomorrow. I doubt I can sleep, and yes, I don't mind telling you that I am a tad freaked out.

I'm repeating this like a mantra: I'm sure it'll be fine. It's nothing.

I'll look back on this post and laugh.

    gl kat sending good vibes your way or some hallmark shit like that..

    I think Recess overplayed that hand and obviously you had the awfuckits when he hit. However it is an interesting hand in that you should have probably either jammed or folded when he raised to 750. The hands where we think we are ahead but are not sure are always interesting to see..

    Good luck today Kat - I'm thinking about you sweety!!

    Crossing my fingers and praying for ya.

    Keep smiling, laughing and loving.

    Maybe a nice ride on the bike might help.

    Okay, you can let go of me now. I promise not to tell you to smile again.

    Seriously, the blood is running to my head. Why do you have to hold me upside down and shaking me.

    :-)

    Good luck, Kat!

    Odds are it's nothing serious. I go through the ultrasound routine every 6 months. Remember, cancer is rarely if ever painful. Most likely, it's a cyst. (Those ARE painful.)

    Will be sending good vibes nevertheless, kitten. Let us know what happens!  

  15. # Blogger pokerpeaker

    Hmmm...I'm glad you're getting it checked out, Kat. Be strong.  

  16. # Blogger TenMile

    Silence is spooky. Even in Kats.

    Sending positive energy your way

    Good luck, and strength. A test is just a test.
