Routine Test

I called the radiologist who read my PET scan and asked him to confirm the findings. Indeed, there is a little area of “prominence” under the right nipple and it needs to be looked at with a mammogram and ultrasound. He assured me that it was probably nothing significant, but with my history, it is best to be checked out. My history. It sounds like a long time ago, but it has been only a year or so.
So, my annual mammogram is next week. I have faith that everything is okay.
Uncertainty is something I have to live with for the rest of my life. Isn’t that true for all of us?

    Yeah, uncertainty is part of all our lives – if we knew everything that would happen, wouldn’t it take all the joy out of those ‘oh so special’ moments we all have? The price we pay for the joyous moments is having to face these other uncertainties – but Karen, I’m confident that all will be well with you. You shall, as always, continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Be well, my friend.
