I know I haven't checked in for quite awhile....I do read everyones posts when I have time though. I decided to just try to live life and forget about cancer for awhile. Unfortunately, that is not someone else's plan. When going for my recent scan to check lung, liver, pelvic area, they found a lump on my breast. I truly thought they had the wrong results. I have never had anything come up on my breast, or so I thought. But, apparantely a spot they had seen before grew. Off they sent me for mammo, ultrasound, and then a biopsy! As I'm sure you can all imagine, I was completley freaked out!!!
I am sharing this with you, NOT for sympathy, although I can never get enough prayers, but to tell you to keep up on all of your appts! Had I not gone in for my routine scan, who knows how advanced this would have become....but mostly to say since I was diagnosed with anal cancer, I slacked off of my mammograms, that I had religously had every year since I was 40. I just felt like I had been poked & messed with enough, and surely I would not get breast cancer too!!! Well I'm here to tell you.....so not slack off!!! I have now had 3 primary cancers in 3 years, but still feel blessed as they have all been stage 1.
Bound to keep a smile on my face as I begin yet another journey! Wish all of you love and healing always!!
