After another week in the weeds I am back with this weeks installment. Hope you have some time to chat and let us all know what is up with you. We are here to lend an ear or a hand when you need it and to cheer for you when you have a success (of any size).
This week has been a trying one for my family. My mother – the healthiest 66 year old I know – had a wonky mammogram. The ultrasound showed “something” and so a needle biopsy was performed. These samples came back normal but the surgeon is not comfortable leaving it so whatever it is will be completely excised and sent for pathology next Thursday. Mom is handling it as well as possible. She was actually more stressed out by the normal results as I think she had spent the week preparing herself mentally and when the results were not what she was expecting it threw her for a loop. She sounded more calm this morning when I spoke with her.
She is just like her mother. She dreads the doctor because she dreads bad news and loss of control. Her sister is currently being treated for breast cancer so she has had a front row seat for what may be her future. Luckily, we are all here, we all get along and she has a lovely dog to help comfort her whatever the results from next weeks surgery may be. Waiting another week sucks though.
Okay, rant over. What is up with all of you Moose? Lemme have it. On what are you ruminating this week?
