Last week, while I was just reading about the changes that these jokers up in Washington were trying to make to healthcare I got crazy mad!
I just had a mammogram three weeks ago and I was thinking while I was having my boobs squashed into the machine how thankful I was for the healthcare I have.
Early detection of breast cancer is critical!
I ended up having to have three biopsies last week for things that were "highly suspicious," and that sucked. The actual procedures were no walk in the park; they were scary and they hurt. The women who worked at the clinic were really helpful, professional and kind.
Waiting for the results was no picnic either. Babe and I went and were so relieved to find out I didn't have cancer, it didn't really matter what else she said. I knew whatever the results were, we would figure it out, but uncertainty around health issues is heavy stuff.
I have to have surgery in the next couple of months and will meet for a consultation at the end of this month, but that sounds like a cakewalk compared to all the steps I would have had to take if it turned out to be cancer.
Whatever else you learned from this story, you should now know that things I consider easy are a walk in the park, a picnic and a cakewalk.
