Abnormal Mammogram - Cancerhead

Moonflower!

I'm so sorry to hear that there were indeed lumps. I hope it is something they can watch closely, or deal with with surgery. And I hope it is not more cancer and is instead cystic clumps or some such. I can't even imagine how cranky you must be about all this, but I know you will get through this with your usual intelligence and grace. I totally understand the McDonald's trip. I've always said, "You know, if someone says I'm terminal, I'm going to have $100 bottles of good red wine, brilliant cheeses and lots of chocolate and ice cream!" I've cut it all out . . . except the chocolate, which I can't seem to manage getting rid of.

I had a little chocolate binge yesterday, so when my friend came over, I shoved the box of truffles into her hand and demanded that she take it out of my house immediately. :-)

I will actually be in Southern Oregon (near Beaverton and Portland) July 17 (and a few days before) for a wedding! So maybe we can hook up if you are near there!

Keep us posted on how the Friday testing goes. I'm so glad you can go in sooner rather than later. The waiting is agonizing! I'm thinking about you and praying for you, dear Moonflower!

Abnormal Mammogram - Cancerhead

Dear Friends,
The sonogram is complete, I should have the results by Monday or Tuesday.

I want to share a story with you that is deeply personal, I don't go shouting it about, but after the last year reading and posting on this board, I regard you all as friends, so here goes.

Last year, I had to travel to Eugene for the hysterectomy, it being the closest city outside Portland there was a gyn/onc. A very dear friend was driving me up, and would be with me my entire hospital stay. It was raining off and on the entire three hour trip. The sun did break through the clouds on several occasions, each time accompanied by beautiful rainbows. In fact, there were so many rainbows we started to lose count. My friend pointed out that this was a sign to me that all would be well.

When I left the hospital five days later, it was with the knowledge that instead of just having to recover from surgery, ovarian cancer had been found as well, and I was facing chemotherapy. I was terrified, but I'll be darned if there weren't rainbows the entire way back. Again my friend pointed them out as auspicious, but I protested. How could it be when all this "bad" stuff was happening to me. Then it suddenly dawned on me. No rain, no rainbows. A rainbow became an important symbol to me.

The day I had my first chemo treatment there were rainbows, and the day I completed chemo, there they were again - rainbows.

When I came out of the hospital today after the sonogram, it had been raining. I looked up and was startled to see a magnificent, shining, double rainbow stretching across the beautiful valley I live in. It just took my breath away and I began to weep (in fact I haven't stopped). It's my sign, and I knew. No matter the outcome, whether the lumps are nothing, or if more treatment is deemed necessary, it is going to be okay.

Hi Moonflower,

With a wonderful story like that, your sonogram results have to be NORMAL!!

I am definately not a real religious person but I do believe that there is always someone watching over us at all times.

Right before my surgery and right after I came home I had this urgent need to go to the cemetery to see my father. It was almost like a calling and a calming when I got there.

I now pick up every penny I see, face up or face down, because they are all "pennies from heaven" sent to me from someone special.

Let us know your results.

That is a beautiful sign and I am sure it means something very good that you saw it all three times. In the bible the rainbow is a sign of promise tjhat God gave after the flood.

Moonflower,

You can be sure of my prayers as you wait for your results.

Your rainbow story has me in tears. Rainbows have come into my life at significant times...and remember, it's the combination of the rain and the sunshine that makes them! So remember, with the "rain" of your additional testing and anxiety, there has to be sunshine somewhere. In the Bible, the rainbow stands for God's faithfulness to His promises. Hold onto that rainbow!!!

Blessings.
Marlene

Abnormal mammogram

Hugs, Moonflower. In the last year I had 2 abnormal mammogram. Twice I cried, as they did the sonogram. Twice it turned out to be normal. Just want you to know that. Take care, Joanna

I'm Okay, I'm Okay!!!!!

Dear Sisters,
We do the dance of joy . The sonogram report is back - "consistent with fibroadenoma, aggressive followup not necessary at this time, recommend mammogram recheck in six months." Boy, it seemed like the longest wait ever, but then I knew after the rainbow all would be well.

I see the doctor in a couple of weeks for my three month check. She mentioned sending me to a breast specialist for a second opinion, as well as considering an MRI either now or in six months. But she is also comfortable with just keeping an eye on it (or should I say them) for now. So I have much to consider in the next couple of weeks.

I was reading about fibroadenomas on the internet and found that they are often referred to as a breast mouse. Naturally, since I have three, the image that came to mind was "three blind mice". I figure it is best to make friends with them and keep a sense of humor.

I would celebrate with chocolate cake, but I got busted yesterday. My acupuncturist took one look at my tongue and said "you've been eating sugar". A, yup, guilty as charged. Guess I'll have a nice healthy apple instead.

Again ladies, my thanks for your thoughts and prayers. I don't know what I'd do without you. Love and hugs to everyone.

GREAT news!!!! I know how relieved I was so I have an inkling of how you're feeling. I've been thinking about you and I'm really happy things have turned out well.

Best wishes, Moonflower...
