Mum and Dad picked me up on time.. Mum came with a curry and rice for me to put in the firidge for tonight's dinner (it was very good too!). We arrived at the hospital over 30 minutes early, but you really don't know what morning traffic is going to be like one day to the next, and honestly I don't go that far into the city anymore to go to work so I had no real idea either.
The biopsy took exactly 45 minutes like the pamphlet said. You lie face down on this table witha hole in it for your breast. The table is nice and hard too... and the room was freezing, it felt like the AC was cranked! Your breast is squished so they can guide the biopsy needle with x-ray/ultrasound. Then you're given a local anestetic. The biopsy itself didn't take long and I honestly didn't feel it, just uncomforatble. The doctor seemed to feel from my mammograms that its calcification from scar tissue from the surgery I had a few years ago. I hope so! I've been told my Dr will get the results in 2-3 weeks.
After the biopsy Mum and Dad took me out for breakfast and back home again. I was back home by 10:45 am where I went back to bed (Hunter of course had to come back to bed with me). I didn't get up until 5:30pm when Todd got home from work!
So I've been spending this evening getting caught up with all of your comments... my BB and I've got my ornament RR ready to go in the mail... once I buy some envelopes!
I have to say that today I felt the support of all of you! Thank you so much for every hug, good thought, positive comment or prayer every one of them has made me feel good about this whole "adventure".
