Me, My Lover Boy and Mammograms! lol

In a couple of hours I will once again have one of my breasts smashed under glass and once again be told to hold my breath and told not to move.....OK, with that amount of applied pressure who's breathing?? lol And as far as moving......I kinda can't really go anywhere with my breast being held in a vice like grip now can I??? Before my masectomy, I would of said something more along the lines "And just where do you expect me to go without my breast.......but I did enter an operating room just a few shorts months ago and even though I exited that operating room, me and that breast did go seperate ways.....no worries I have a brand new shiny one!


Now with there being a new lump in the 8:00 o'clock position on my right breast and my personal history with breast cancer I have to have all the tests ran again. Jim is going with me even though they won't let him go into the waiting room, mammogram or ultra sound room.......something about other women and other breasts.......Ummmm.....he's seen breasts before and I think he stopped giggling over the sight of them at the age of 9, but they still said "No Way" Me? I have no problem exposing them in the name of medicine, I'll do anything to make sure other women take their health a lil more serious. I was always one to think it can't happen to me and it did!


I remember when I first found out I was pregnant with my first daughter...I was on my own already by that time and I was OK with that......just because her Father(her Bio Dad, not my Jim) wasn't ready to become a parent and insisted I terminate the pregnancy....I was ready to become a Mom and I was having that baby so off you go!!!! Of course I was in denial of even being pregnant for months..I thought if I avoid the Doctor then no one will be able to confirm the pregnancy....I was young, stubborn and niave. So when I finally did go to the Doctor and he asked me why I thought I might be pregnant I said, "Ummmmmm...Cuz it's kicking me!!!!" ( I was almost 7 month pregnant but still wasn't showing yet) I was very lucky that my child was born healthy....I made sure I ate right and took prenatal vitamins...now at this age I know how risky my denial was.


So me and my Guy are off to yet another Doctor's visit, yet another test and a whole lot of waiting...but with him at my side I can handle anything!


Me and My Guy.......oh yeah and goldylocks! (my wig of course) lol lol lol



After 20 something years I still have such a crush on that man........ain't love grand!!!!  Ü

I'm glad you still have your sense of humor....where would one go with their breast crushed in a vice?! ROFL

Keep your chin up, Kimberleigh - you WILL beat this. You and Jim, that is. What an awesome husband, lover, PARTNER!! You ARE blessed...

What a good-looking couple the two of you are.

pippa1116 said...

you are right! you cannot go anywhere with your breast in a vise.  I wanted to take off when i got my first mammogram three years ago, and it was in there pretty good!
I hope all goes well today and I will be sending good vibes your way!.

I had the "breast squishing" done yesterday!!!  They have some new digital machines so I could see the pictures on the screen and the tech could tell right away if it was a good shot.  No waiting in the hall until they tell you it's OK for you to leave.  Does it work better?  Who knows.

I am sending THOUSANDS of prayers and hugs your way today and have asked my JLand friends to send some your way too.  

LOVE YOU!!!
((hugs))

Aww, good luck today. I'm sure you could think of better things to do with a day, but I'm so glad you have the good sense to follow through with all the necessary medical procedures.

You look terrific with your man. If this is you when you're not feeling 100%, I'm sure when we see the "all better" pics, we'll all be blown away!

So I am sitting here feeling sorry for myself because I have Breast Cancer and start Chemo on Thursday, and come across your page, which makes me smile. Thanks. Keep being an inspiration. All the best to you with your new tests. Holly

Guido/Pharmolo sent me across to offer my support.  I have read your entry and you are one strong character.  Positivity which I see you have in abundance is the keyword when fighting cancer and its treatments with their side effects.  I know where you have been and where you are now because I have been throught the chemo and the radiotherapy for breast cancer too. My treatment was over with last July. Like you I had a scare in between then and now. And like you I have to keep going back for check ups. I love your wig...I called mine Wilma...I was asking myself before the lady came to help me choose one..Will my wig be brown, will my wig be blonde, will my wig be black?  Said fast enough I came up with its name and a little ditty which I have somewhere on my web site.  I will post it tomorrow for a laugh.  Stay in control and don't let anything that happens take YOU away. No matter what happens tomorrow. I'll grit my teeth along with you. God Bless!   Jeanie

Love the pic, you and your man make a lovely couple.  Nice hair too.  If you ever decide to go brunette, both Gabe and Art have donated their hair, and the others plan on doing the same if and when they decide to cut their hair.

swferstl said...

Heya, Goldilocks! I can certainly see why you are still so in love with him. I'm up for my mammo this month. Just got the notice. Where in the heck DO they think we're going pinned down like that? And for me, it's also standing on tip-toes. I remember feeling like an amoeba squeezed between glass slides for the microscope. Ya know, once you give birth & have mammos, what's left to hide???? hugs, sher (wunzuponatime)
