I really want you all with me, my 'special person' will be there......in spirit.
Tylenol xtra will help. I hope. Love you all........jxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Tasha! This is a hard thing to do. I'm 9 years out and still have a major panic attack when I go. 2 years ago, I was so nervous and preoccupied, I made the wrong turn and when I realized it, I tried to turn into a parking lot to turn around and forgot I wasn't in the Rt lane and crossed 1 lane and cut in front of a small truck and she hit my car. My fault totally! Try to relax! I know it's hard but it has to be done and you can do it! I will think of you and pray that you will be fine! HUGS!!! Cathy

You're in my thoughts and hoping that the day goes well for you. I'm have a 3D ultrasound in the afternoon, not dreading it but hate when they put the heavy machine on my breast and push it down. Be sure and let us know how it goes for you.

Positive thoughts your way early tomorrow morning. Nope - can't wimp out now, dear J. We won't let you. You MUST do it! It is so very, very important, friend.

And I totally understand your anxiety. Completely.

Taleena has reserved the big bus - and TJ's driving. It's a really, really big bus - and will be packed, because we're all coming along for the ride.

Yep - be sure to take those Tylenol Extra Strength, and do so as soon as you get up tomorrow morning.

8:30am Friday, Dec. 18th - you're on my calendar, dear J.

Kindest regards,
Susan

Yes, Joe and I will be there with you, Tasha. I remember many months ago when you posted about not being able to endure the mammo, and I remember when you posted that you had made the appt. Very proud of you, Tasha. You can do this; many sisters, daft sods, and kindred spirits will be right there beside you.

I'll start squeezing your hand at 8:30 a.m..

(Naturally that won't be when your mammo takes place because they'll leave you in the waiting room, then again in another room in that beautiful gown . . .)

Will you squeeze back starting at 2;30 p.m. when I go to get the results of my blood work?

Love,
Linda from Baltimore

P.S. Anyone else up for a scan/test/appointment tomorrow?

I will be there, holding your hand and whisphering in your ear to breath. I would tell you jokes but then you will laugh and jerk and it will hurt so no funnies. Definitely take tylenol extra, it will help. And if you get stressed, pretend you are blowing bubbles. It can help you to relax. Be sure to tell them that you are extra anxious and that your breasts are hyper sensitive. It shouldn't take too long and then you will be done. I am so proud that you are doing this in spite of your fears. Good Girl. It's going to be really crowded with all of us in that room but that's okay. Isn't the date coincidence weird? I am having my skin cancer excised on January 4th and that is when I had my uterine cancer surgery. I am hoping that was my first and this will be my last, but I don't think so cause I just saw another one of these little skin things under my chin. It's really tiny so I am going to tell him on the 4th and hope he will just remove it then. I have been told that these many be very common for me to have. Thanks to whoever is responsible for that.
My best energy and care will be with you tomorrow. And if you want to swear during this go ahead cause I read that yelling helps to aleviate pain. Love you my dear daft sod.

Be there???? I can only hope that there is enough room for all of us, and that the poor person trying to do your mammo is extremely patient....so many Kindred Spirits will be with you that will scarcely have room to put your boob in the squooooosh machine! And if she hurts you, watch out! She will be answering to the likes of us!

Hugs,
Chen♥

You know I will Tasha. We all will. I need to get up early. Apparently, Tj or Taleena are picking me up first with the bus, so, I have to be up by the crack of dawn. Geesh. But, for you, I will do it cuz I love you!

Yes, and I am just going to go in my jammies. Is she is going to be in one of those silly gowns, I can wear my jammies, right? And then after, I am going to take a nap. So should Tasha, she will be emotionally exhausted. Oh, and some ice cream. Isn't there a turquoise looking flavor, like blueberry.

Okay... not sure what your time zone is ... but here it's 8:20 am... so the bus should be pulling up into the parking lot... or it's 9:30 where you are and we should all be back on the bus... still holding your hand (through cyber space)... and waiting to hear from you dear friend.

Hey Tasha, it is about 8:38 here in Texas, so you should be in the room now. You are in my thoughts, and I am sure the room is so crowded that you can hardly make your way to the machine. You will be fine....let us know how it went after you get back home. Hugs to you.

How did it go? I couldn't see anything there were so many people in the room but I stretched my hand through the crowd and patted your shoulder. Did you feel it?

I got through it, eventually......... when I was left alone in that room whilst she went to check the prints............ I looked at the puke-green walls, closed my eyes and said out loud "Thank you Girls... and Aortus"..............It was not nearly as bad as I was expecting, but I am on loads of pain killers. Huge Hugs to you all and thank you for your suppoirt through this, IT MEANT THE WORLD TO ME!........ Thank you again and HUGE HUGS for helping me through this, I felt you there with me......I couldn't have done it without you!

I like the i got through it eventually (that's how I am with pelvic exams). Glad that you have some pain killers. I am just so proud of you. Now we just need to hear that all is well and all is good and that NED is going to take a big spin around the floor with our Turquoise Queen. Let's see if we can some up with a great tune for you. I know, Blue Moon. A very romantic tune and color correct. Do you know when you will get the results? You did good, daft sod.

Hugs for you, Tasha. Yea for you! I like Stef's suggestion of your dancing with NED to the tune of Blue Moon. So let us know when. In the meantime, you celebrate yourself, ok? Cause you put your big girl panties on, as our Jackie would put it, and did what you needed to do.

Moopy,
Tasha probably has scanty, turquoise panties but I know what you mean. She was very brave and she should celebrate. A big jug o' I didn't wine for Tasha.

Yes the room was rather crowded I think either Moopy or Stef stepped on my toe... the heater on the bus broke, but with all of us packed into the darn thing, well, the body heat kept us warm... Still a little nausous with TJ tantrums driving... but would go through it all over again... to make sure we were there for you...!

I thought I stepped on a toe as I was reaching through to rub Tasha's shoulder. I did say sorry but with everyone reassuring Tasha that it would be okay you probably didn't hear me. I liked the wide ride and I told you to wear a heavier jacket. You better listen next time the Daft Sod Comforter's go on the rode. We are like super heroes, driving in our rickety bus to bring comfort and solace to our sisters in need. Our capes are kid sized comforters (get it) with different words of solace and encouragement written on them and different colors. Mine is autumny green with the word Conquer on it. How about you? I am awaiting the call from the next sister in need. It could even be me. As you can see I like visuals.
