A Lump…

picture013This morning, as I was taking a shower enjoying the smell of lavender and mint bath gel thinking about the day ahead of me, I discovered a pea sized lump under my arm near my left breast. Oh, God, not now! I hoped it was just my imagination and went over the area again with my soapy hands. It was still there.
I turned off the warm water, got out of the shower and carefully dried myself off. I put on some clothes and called the doctor trying to hold back the racing thoughts going through my mind. Usually, I have to wait a week or so for an appointment but when I told the nurse on the other end of the phone that I had found a lump under my arm, she told me to come in first thing tomorrow. More to tell later…
