My dear friends...if you heard a great sigh of relief all the way where you are, it was me. Playing the different scenarios in my over active head was killing me little by little.
Lou, my dear friend and doctor called me the minute the test results hit her desk...about 10 minutes ago.
Although my results are negative, the type of tissue I have there (I will have to ask Louise for the correct term) increases the risk of me having breast cancer in the future. Although I am only in my 30s, Lou recommended yearly mammograms (and probably ultrasounds) to keep track of the lump. Of course, the best way is for me to keep track of it by doing monthly self exams and recording any changes.
Friends, your support, prayers, emails, and words of comfort have kept me afloat these past few days. Thank you...thank you.
