Good news from the Third Rodeo!

Sashay, shante!

I had my follow-up mammogram this morning and the new views revealed that the new spots are microcysts and calcifications similar to the ones biopsied in 2019. This is part and parcel of how breast tissue changes as you age.

I am thankful to my own breast for not trying to murder me and exhausted. I regret forgetting the Tylenol 1 hour before because those were some high-pressure images!

My next medical adventure will be my first colonoscopy.

I did not plant seeds this weekend because it was so cold and the garage was frigid. I did write some Postcards to Voters, attempted to organize the cords underneath my desk, ground my own coffee beans, and donated blood.

I’m exhausted. Worrying is exhausting! I also know I wrote I wouldn’t worry about it but you know me. I talk big but I am not brave.

    So, good news then. That’s great! Sorry you’re old enough for a colonoscopy, just remember the prep is the worst part, everything else is easy peasy.
