THIS FAT OLD LADY’S ME MONDAY – I’M GOING TO BE OKAY, REALLY.

I had a mammogram the end of March and there was a spot.

Last week, I had a follow-up mammogram, an ultrasound and a biopsy.

And today I got the initial diagnosis of breast cancer.

Stage 1A.

So early, early, early days; and caught early, early, early. 

Will meet with the “team” on Friday and go from there.

It’s a major relief to have the diagnosis – much better than all the stress and worry of not knowing.  Now, we know and now we can move forward.

For once, I can only praise Kaiser. 

Being able to go in for the second mammogram, have the ultrasound and then the biopsy right then and there was so great – and so efficient. 

My left boob (of course, it’s my left side – if something’s going wrong with me, it’s going to be on the left) looks like someone punched it – hard, but I understand that’s a normal reaction to the biopsy.

So, seriously, y’all.  I’m okay and I’m going to be okay.

As I constantly say (and as my dear husband has kept reminding me since the end of March) – don’t borrow trouble.

So right from the pandemic to breast cancer.  Thanks a buttload 2021!

  1. We love you and your boobs!! They and you will do great. So glad for the early. ❤❤❤❤👀🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

  2. Just catching up with your week — geez, not the best, huh?

    Fear not! Been there – done that; looked on it as a minor, short-term aggravation that would last a few weeks
    & then be gone. Think of it as “don’t applaud too much for amateurs – it only encourages them to do it again!”, i.e., do NOT let this become some huge thing in your life. It’s temporary – the repair people will fix
    it & you’ll beback to normal in no time.

    Hey – would one old musical theatre broad lie to another?

    Be well & hang in there, kiddo! You got this.
