tick tock

now we sit and wait a little more.

"it's going to sound like a cavity being filled. hold still."

"now it's going to feel like a staple gun. don't move."

all the bizarre sounds and sensations of a biopsy.

after carefully studying last weeks films, dr B concluded that the lump/mass on my left side is just a cyst. hurray! but he also saw "something new" on my right side. crap. so we're still at testing 2 tissue samples. no fun.

each site required a different testing method. one mass is more questionable than the other so extra tissue was needed. after all the "stapling" and "drilling" I have 2 clips (markers) that will forever be a part of me. "don't worry. you won't be setting off any alarms or anything." dr B tells me. that crazy thought never even entered my tired little head. geez.

after 90 minutes of needles and more friggin' mammograms, b and I grabbed a quick breakfast and went home and napped (he was coming off the night shift.) I woke up to a throbbing black and blue boob (the numbing agent had clearly worn off.) so now we carry on like life is normal and hope for the best. lulu still needs to be walked 3 times a day and clients still have deadlines to meet. at this point there's no time or reason to miss a beat. (((gulp.)))

(and mole results come back next thursday.)

I've just caught up on your last two posts.

I'm so sorry you're going through this. I've everything crossed that this is just a big scare and that all's well.

Will be holding out to hear your results.

Big hug

Hoping for good news. Hope the boob feels better soon!

Still sending lots of hugs and prayers your way. I'm glad that at least so far, nothing has turned up. Please take care of yourself.

OK, so there was a post titled "the good the bad and the ugly" and it still shows up on my sidebar but then I don't see it here. You're making me nervous.
I'm hoping all is OK...thinking of you.
