Good Girls

The girls are fine, thank you. They squished me again (I do NOT squishy heart the squishing) and the doctor says that the little whatevers that made him unhappy the last time were merely the result of weird squishing the last time. It's all good.

I almost cheered when they told me, but walking out I heard someone in another room mention scheduling surgery. Then saw the tear-stained face of another woman passing me. And remembered why I was there in the first place. And left very, very grateful.

If you're over forty and haven't done it this year, schedule a mammogram. Do it now. Don't be that tear-stained woman in the pink room (Good lord, people - the entire place, including the parking lot, was PINK). Pick up the phone.

Until I write again ...

Yeah for good girls! But boo the bad squishing in the first place, making you worry.

Melissa said...

I'm so glad to hear the girls are ok. How heartbreaking for the woman who was scheduling surgery.

AFF said...

Yay for the squish. An important PSA everybody needs to hear, Flea.

Proud of you taking care of yourself. Way to go!
How about the flu shot?

So glad everything's ok. No desire to squish. None.

yep we can survive squishing and squeezing a lot easier than surviving cancer.

Package on the way!

Good news from the good girls! Celebrate the squishing! : D

I'm so glad you went in, despite the fact the place was pink. We'll keep the tear-stained lady and the other who had surgery scheduled in our thoughts, eh?

Three cheers to the healthy flea.

Glad to hear you are OK.

I am so relieved for you. And I did mine 4 months ago. Go do it ladies! Today!

Thanks for the reminder. I was waiting until I was fully insured because my lumpy girls have to go to the pink place every year... the can't do them on a regular machine. Even the trip up in the elevator is an eye opener.

Excellent news and advice .. and any of you who havent done so ... get thee to a squisher ASAP!

It may hurt a bit but the alternative is unthinkable

I am so behind on your blog! I thought you weren't going to be posting for awhile. This post made me sit up straight and read a bit faster. I am glad that all is okay. I've been the other woman. Fortunately, it was not cancer. I will never forget how scared I was when I was told I had to have surgery. I'll be praying for her, whoever she is.

I was the other women, and it was breast cancer.

But the good news...I'm still here (12 years later).

Not fun at 40 (not fun anytime!).

Period!
