Squish.

I had my mammogram and biopsy today. Wow. The mammogram was the MOST PAINFUL medical procedure I have ever had. I started crying because I was in so much pain. It was horrible. I can see why women skip it. It's a truly hideous experience. I also believe that if men had to take a diagnostic test that required sticking their private parts between two plates and squooshing them as flat as possible, someone, somewhere, would have invented a special chamber just for this purpose, no squishing required.

Compared to the mammogram, the biopsy was a walk in the park, although I bruised really, really badly, and now my left breast is one big bruise. DH is so sad about that- he feels really badly for me and my poor left breast.

Results in three business days? I'm not worried about it, but I hope I don't have to repeat this experience any time soon.

Oh, here's hoping they got it right the first time and you never have to do that again until you're at least 40.

*sigh* I'm sorry.

Gosh the mammogram sounds really unpleasant.

I'm sending good thoughts your way darling.

Sweetie! I hope that they have nothing but good news when they call. You will be in my thoughts!

How's the knitting coming?
