My little drama

John pointed out that I haven't written anything in a while. Sometimes depression just takes hold.

So what pushed over the edge this time? Late May is when I have my annual check-up. The doctor was literally yelling at me because I had not had my lump rechecked by the surgeon or biopsied. I explained to him that after my last visit to the surgeon I felt he thought it was nothing to worry about, so I didn’t! Anyway he got me upset so I decided to have it biopsied after all just to be sure. I called the surgeons office and made an appointment to have it done in the office and because I do not have health insurance they agreed to just schedule it without an office visit first. I had to take an afternoon off of work and John took me. The surgeon re-examined me and told me he would do the procedure if I really wanted but he was 99.9% sure it is just normal breast tissue and if I have a biopsy I will have a new lump of scar tissue that will mess up my mammograms. So needless to say I did not have it done. The surgeon dictated a rather terse note to my GYN and I was out of there in under 15 minutes. He also gave me a huge discount on his office visit rate which was very kind of him!

So with the stress of this little drama, some things going on with Bean (she and family are fine, I just inherited the worry gene from Mom!), and a month left to go at work I haven’t been feeling like myself the past week.

With 5 days off I really thought I could finish putting in the butterfly garden and I have really been working at it. It won’t be done by Tuesday but it will be close. The weather has been great and I love being outside. Hopefully I’ll be back to regular updates now.
