A day before I left for BlogHer, I finally had my mammogram appointment. I had had one last year but they wanted me to also get an ultrasound — and I never did.
I made the appointment twice and then couldn’t make it. After my friend Kristi went through an awful scare about a lump she found in her breast, and my girlfriend in Germany was just diagnosed with breast cancer, I was kind of glad that I finally got myself checked out.
But then they wanted two more pictures.
And then another two.
Sure, shmusch my little breasts some more.
Then they did the ultrasound, but after getting those pictures looked over, the main doctor came in again to check out two spots in particular she had circled on the printout.
I get a kick out of how much I look like my mom in this picture. She has amazing cheekbones, which I only have when I’m lying down, lol!
The final result was that there are two spots that look benign but need to be looked at again in three months.
I won’t miss that appointment.
I hope you are having a blast the last few days of summer! Landon is learning to horseback ride! What have you been up to? I wrote two more posts about BlogHer’12: and an Instagram tutorial:
