We were thinking positive thoughts, but it was with some trepidation that we went to get a diagnostic 3D mammogram on Friday.
As we blogged earlier this week, we had our annual mammogram two days after Christmas and shortly thereafter got a letter saying we had to come back to have some abnormalities checked out.
At our appointment today the second technician seemed to hint that if the 3D mammo looked OK to the radiologist we’d be off the hook. After it was finished, we were told to wait a bit.
The tech came out and said we had to get the ultrasound, which scared the hell out of us. After it was done, that tech asked us to wait in the exam room so she could show it to the radiologist.
We nervously waited again. When she came back in, she said everything had checked out and that they would see us next year for our annual mammogram.
We felt like doing cartwheels out of the office.
For those we know with breast cancer, and we know several with it, keep fighting the good fight. Every day, our prayers are with you.
And that goes for those we don’t know, such as Jewelry Television host Dawn Tesh, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
