Do It For You

When I was 19 I found a lump in my left boob. (I hate the word breast so we are gonna talk boobs ’round here). I didn’t tell anyone. I was embarrassed to talk about it,  I was scared to talk about. Out of site, out of mind I guess. The lump continued to grow so I told hubs who was my then boyfriend. Not long after we found out I was pregnant.

Off to the OB I went. She did a routine check-up. Not only did she find the lump I had felt, she felt 2 others. Scared was an understatement. Because I was pregnant all they could do was an ultrasound of the lumps and continue to watch them until I had the baby.

When Noodle was 6 weeks old, under the knife I went and out came the lumps. (By the time they took out the first one I had felt it was the size of a small egg). The last thing I remember the doctor saying to me was 19 year olds don’t get cancer. Thankfully he was right. Everything was fine. I had mammograms once a year to monitor things.

Fast foward to 2 years ago. Another lump. I found it about 6 months after my last mammogram. The mammogram did not detect it. By this time I was past my modest stage, I had a baby for goodness sakes, if someone could look “down there” why did I care if they looked at my boobs.  I was off to the doctor, then off for more mammograms and ultrasounds. The lump was in almost the same spot as one of the previous ones. The doctor wondered if maybe they had missed a small piece of the previous lump and it had grown again. This doctor, who was different than the first one, told me 20 year olds don’t get cancer. Again, luck was on my side and everything was fine.

In November I went to the Gyn for my yearly “girly” exam. All was great, passed with flying colors. 2 weeks later I was doing my monthly feel up as I like to call it and that is when I found it. Another lump. By this time I knew, 19 year olds don’t get cancer and either do 20 year olds, but now I was into my 30’s. Because I have had lumps before the chances the lump was cancer were slim, but I still worried. The OB/Gyn sent me off for another mammogram and ultrasound. The mammogram showed the lump I had found. The ultrasound found 2 others.

Monday morning I am going in for a biopsy on the 2 that I and the doctor still can’t feel. The previous lump (2 years ago) was in my right boob, these are in the left. We are doing a biopsy to see if they need to come out, because if I am going under the knife again, I want it all done at once. If they are benign, I will go back for another ultrasound to see if they have grown since the ultrasound I had in December. If they are benign and not growing then we will decide if I want to leave them or have them removed.

This is a very long post, to let all of you who read it, know that it only takes a few minutes once a month to do a boob check. 2 of the million several mammograms I have had failed me, the 2 times I needed  them to find something. The “Breast Specialist” I went to this time informed me I have extremely dense breasts (Hey! Maybe I can add that to my 100 things list!), which could be part of the problem with the mammograms.

Please, please, please do a monthly breast exam. You owe it to yourself. I will do a monthly reminder on my blog. If those are the only posts that you read, then I feel that this blog thing is worth it. Be a friend and remind someone else to do one as well.

Here’s wishing you lump free boobies and that 30 year old don’t get cancer.

Go Figure

Why is that when I buy a half gallon of milk, we run out? But, when I buy a gallon it goes bad when it gets down to about, you guessed it, half gone.

 I tend to buy half gallons because Noodle refuses to drink the milk from the day before the expiration date. It makes me want to ring her neck  scream.

Weakness

I like to think that I am a rather strong person. Except when it comes to my mother. I don’t think she is a bad person, I think she is a very bitter person and it seems I am the recipient of most of her bitterness.

I don’t like to tell her things that I feel will turn into a confrontation. I have been know to lay in bed tossing and turning for hours the night before I am going to see her, or even before I know I have to call her on the phone and tell her something.

My big announcement for today? That we are selling our house and buying a new one. Not really something I can keep from her. 

It went much better than I expected. Although I am sure she has reserved the right to have an opinion on all of it at a later date. My poor dad, I am sure she bombarded him the moment he got home from work and hasn’t taken a breath yet.

I am trying really hard to be better about telling her things and trying not to worry what she will say or think, so far I am doing a pretty shitty job at it. 

Blogroll

I am trying to work on my blogroll. I have several more than a few blogs I read that are password protected. Does it make you mad when you click on a link only to see you need a password? My question is do I add the password protected blogs and mark them as protected or just leave them off?

 Wanna be on my blogroll? Let me know and I will be happy to add you. I am always looking for new reads
