40/50 - Up for the next round ...

I’m reeling.

Yesterday I had one of those ooky female medical exams, part of my first yearly physical with the VA. During the breast exam, the doc found some “density” along the outer side of my left breast. She asked if I had a mammogram scheduled. I do, in mid-May.

“No,” she said, “it has to be sooner. I’ll fix that.”

The “density” in my breast could be nothing, she said, so I shouldn’t worry. While I was digesting that, she looked at my blood test results and informed me that I’m diabetic.

I believe that’s called a “one-two” punch.

Oh man. That's a kick in the gut for sure, the anxiety of not knowing what's there, given to you with the bad test results. That stinks. What happens next?

Yes, Wren. I second what bubs said above. It is not something that anyone wants to go through and I am sorry you are going through this.

Anything I can do, please do not hesitate.

My hope is with you, Wren.

Oh gosh. I do hope it is nothing.
