Below - November 2009 . . . .11 months post chemo
Well, as far as the boob pics go . . . .Gotcha
Tomorrow is a mammogram and blood work. Last blood work was good, mammogram had some architectural distortion.
Thursday, November 19th is the MRI. We went to the hospital yesterday to visit the MRI machine. Who in their right mind visits MRI machines? Me.
The anxiety has lessened somewhat since talking to the MRI tech and seeing the machine. Xanax to get through the days leading up to the MRI and Valium an hour before the MRI . . . . life through chemistry, ain't it grand.
For a number of years, fear of the dentist would send me to this same high level of anxiety. I've been able to work through the fear with two great dentists and hygenists (and a Xanax once in a while). Who knows, maybe I'll get to this same place with MRIs . . . . dentists and MRIs every six months, hmmmm.
We are still working on the daughter and granddaughters situation. I thank you for your words of wisdom, ladies. This has been 10 times worse than the breast cancer diagnosis. I could fight and do something about the cancer, but I can't do anything about this situation.
Talk to you on Thursday.
