Not sure where to start..
I know I could have just come out and said I have some medical issues to deal with, but I wanted to get this message out to everyone ~ my tumor did NOT show up on a mammogram, only the ultrasound picked it up. I am diligent about my breast health because my maternal grandmother had it as well as my mother, it runs in the woman of our family. If you notice ANYTHING unusual let your Doctor know right away, DO NOT WAIT! I am at stage one because I didn't wait, and I know that a mammogram is only a tool, it is not a definitive answer. More and more breast cancer is being cured not just because of the great strides in the medical field, but because woman are becoming more and more aware of what they need to do to advocate for them selves. Never be afraid to speak up!
I have a wonderful blogger set up for next weeks Make a Friend Monday, I feel bad for putting her off for a week but wanted to get the word out on what was going on. I will also probably have Bernie from One Mixed Bag do a guest post or two for me while I am out of commission following surgery. If anyone else would like to do a post feel free to let me or Bernie know.
Thank you so much for your patience while I wrapped my head around a huge change in my life, I really appreciate it.
