Good results.

Rodney Smith photo.

I was feeling very anxious this morning when we went across in the ferry, to go for the recall mammogram appointment.
My dear husband came along with me, to give me the support I needed.
I am just writing to say how relieved I am that after two and a half hours and a number of mammograms (as they wanted a better look ) and then came the ultra sound, they finally said that everything was ok and I was allowed to go.
We went out and had a bite to eat at a Chinese Restaurant, to celebrate.

The sad part is for those that may need follow up treatment and I do feel for those Ladies
and my prayers are with them.

I want to pop by and thank you for all the beautiful messages you left.

Much love to you, my dear friends. I hope that you are having a great week.

Ps. I hope for a good nights sleep tonight.

  21. Oh I know the feeling. I went for a baseline when I turned 35. It wasnt good. I had to go back two more times only to find out I drink too much caffine. I was checked again a year after that and all was well. This year I will I will go again because it has been a few years sence the last one. Prayers said and fingers crossed. Im happy that you had a good turn out! Praise God! Take care and enjoy your upcoming weekend!
