Thoughts on Thursday



Yesterday I had my routine mammogram.  I am lucky because they are not painful to have done...the pain comes in the visual and the conversation.  I can't look down or I will immediately run to the plastic surgeons office and ask for an A cup please.  And I especially hate hearing the very nice tech say things like we need to move this tissue...OMG please give me an A cup!  I know we all want what we don't have.  I want curly hair...blah blah blah...

Last weekend I enjoyed a stitch day with the Fabric Stalkers and not only did it fill the quilting soul but it was so wonderful to just hear their voices and embrace their stories.  It had been so long since we had a gathering where a good portion of us could attend.  When we all worked together in the medical field we only had to figure out how to get together around our work schedules and family functions...but, now we add retirement for over half of us which means schedule difference, travel...then grandkids (wow) that we must see cause we can't stand it if we haven't had a grandkid fix...soooo it was a blessing.

Here is a bit of the fun...

  1. Ohmygosh--I feel the same way; I just had mine last month and was told i have VERY DENSE tissue...so I also need an ultrasound --which in my estimation, does hurt--ooouch!!
    But am clear so that is good.

  2. Speaking from the A cup corner, I can tell you those mammo's hurt just as much if not more, especially since they always seem to have you on tippy-toes BEFORE they begin the squashing process.

  3. I'm with you sister! I'd love a reduction and a lift job! Lol! My Mom always said she wished she'd come back in the next life with curly hair, and knowing her luck she'd come back as a poodle! Might not be too bad, I don't think.
    Love girlfriend time! I try to fit it in as often as possible.

  5. I'm in the A cup crowd and for me it's easy peasy. But thankful for mammograms since I had to "donate" one of them. (Not by choice) LOL
