In just a few short hours I will be sending my baby girls off to 2nd and 4th grade. Nothing brings me greater joy. This has been the most “boring” summer ever according to them. I have spent more hours at the pool than I have sleeping, more hours than that cleaning up their messes and cooking them meals. So come tomorrow morning, there will be no choking on tears of sadness. I will be rejoicing.
So how does a mother celebrate the end of a summer with her wonderful children? With a MAMMOGRAM, of course! And it gets even better! I will be topping off the morning with a well-woman exam! The part I look forward to the most is the drawing of blood. Fasting, of course. And to top that off, I will have a TB skin test for nursing school. It’s like a full-body cocktail of rejuvenation. I will admit however that I am a little nervous about this mammogram. Not the procedure. That’s easy. It’s the results that may be frightening. This will be a comparison to the December findings thereby determining if any significant growth has occurred since that time.
