First off, thanks to everyone for your kind words. It helps me to come to the computer and see what my fellow nurses have to say.
Mother/babyRN - you said the exact thing my husband said, "at least they found it and they're doing something about it"!! As far as my sense of humor - no matter how yucky I'm feeling that's usually the last thing to go!!
Cathy - I'm glad your mom is doing well and they caught her problems early on.
Shay - I absolutely love your idea. Unfortunately, my doctor probably won't do that (I know, I know.....I won't know until I ask her!!!). She's heavily into "natural" remedies, such as relaxation, deep breathing, herbal tea before bedtime, etc. Well, first of all.....I CAN'T relax, I'd probably FALL OVER if I took a deep breath, I HATE tea and even if I did like it, I would probably be up all night peeing if I drank it before bedtime! I do like the crafts idea. Actually, I've been reading a lot (mysteries) and that helps.
MPHkatie - Why didn't your PCP oder any further testing after he/she found the lump? And yes, I like the idea of being boobie buddies! OK....and just how does one SEMI-date a person?!!
Connie - As I'm typing this, you have had, or are having your f/u mammogram. My thoughts are with you, as I'm sure everyone's are. Wish we could all be there holding your hand. Please let us know how it turns out. And yes, please join the boobie party. The more the merrier (there's power and strength in numbers)!!
Renee - don't forget to make that appointment. We'll all be checking to make sure you do...............right ladies?!!!
Hey you guys..............I just thought of a great idea for a new avatar.............................tee hee!!!
