Mammogram Time!!!

I couldn't put it off any longer...
NOR should I have ever done such a 
thing to begin with!!!!
I knew that I HAD to have a 
mammogram done when I was 40.
I waited until the end of February 
before I turned 41 on March 2nd.
I won't do it like that again.
I mean, come on, my shoes
matched the pink robe they had for me!
But seriously, there's really nothing
to a mammogram.  It's a bit awkward 
especially since a dear friend of mine 
from high school was doing mine -
which actually made it super nice.  
Kelli G had told me 10 minutes
and Michelle would have me out 
of there.  Well.........
I guess the Good Lord saw it fit
to teach me a mini-lesson about
putting things as important as this off.  
THiS is the look of FEAR in my eyes!!!
During my mammogram,
Michelle noticed some "stuff" and showed
it to the doctor.  He thought he needed 
a closer look and wanted me to have
an ultrasound.  I was texting Troy
and scared to death.  Michelle or the 
technician couldn't really give me any
info one way or another but Michelle
did think it was just the composition 
of my 'girls'. I prayed and prayed.  
Beyond thankfully, the doctor came in and
told me that it was indeed just the composition 
of my girls - apparently they are Fibrocystic?!?
I think that was the word, but
all I heard was NO WORRIES this time.  
Oh the relief!!!!!!!!!!!
I took these pictures to send to 
my friends about the importance
of taking care of the 'girls' on time!!!
I knew as I walked out of that place
that MANY women, some whom I 
have known, don't get to leave there
with an extra skip in their step. 
The next time I go, I might not
be so lucky myself.  
You just never know!
I was so thankful for my good news
that day though!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I pray my heart out for
too many that are fighting cancer.
