Happy New Year!
I hope you had a fun, safe, New Year's celebration.
I am so glad to begin 2009. Primarily because 2007 and 2008 sucked.
Just for the hell of it, here's another look at the Laguna sunset for you from Tuesday evening.
Can you believe those colors? It was spectacular!
Well, I have wonderful, wonderful news. What better way to start a new year, than with great news?
I went for my biopsy on Wednesday. AND, I'm perfectly fine! Everything came back free and clear of ALL bad stuff. Thank God!
The biopsy itself was uncomfortable, but not too bad. I've been through so much medical stuff, the pain from the biopsy was mild in comparison. The female doctor was fantastic. Her assistant was also female.
The assistant has worked at the breast center for 10 years. She's 43 and recently found a lump in her own breast. She had a double mastectomy and is still bald from going through chemo. She held my bum arm for me so tenderly during the procedure. The fact she could show me so much compassion when she has gone through so much herself touched me to no end.
Apparently I had a cluster of three little lumps. They didn't look like cysts on the mammogram or ultrasound. During the biopsy, however, they realized all three WERE cysts. They drained them, gave me an all clear and that was it. Well, other than a sore boob afterwards. I stayed home and rested (on pain meds) for New Year's Eve. Even though I was confident of the results, the sense of relief is an awesome start to 2009!
