First, the news of Jeanne on Here, then Olga's new lesions, and today, news of Carrie passing. I feel like I've been kicked in the stomach.
THEN - my oldest friend (we've been friends since we were 4) called me late this morning after we'd just been together at the gym earlier . Hmmmmmm. I could tell from her voice that something was up. She is a 5-year kidney cancer survivor. Actually 5 1/4 years. She went to her pcp this morning because of nagging cough. They xrayed. You know the drill. She had a CT scan this afternoon and a visit to her oncologist after. I went with her (she's single). There is "something" there and while it does not look like obvious cancer (new or mets), it's there and it's rather large (egg) and she will next have a PET scan and visit to the thoracic surgeon for biopsy because they don't know what it is, but it is. And it wasn't there 2 years ago.
I had my mammogram at 12:45 and I have absolutely no concerns about it, but I will feel much better when I get the results and can breathe easier, especially after all of the news we've had.
Wishing all of us good health and a happy life.
