All is well

I’m just back from my first post-treatment mammogram and ultrasound.

And all is well. Woooohooooo!!

I learned a lot today:

  • That I have two staples in my right breast (!).
  • That my enlarged right breast may be a delayed reaction of radiation (?).
  • That the constant snapping of photos during the ultrasound is not necessarily a bad sign.
  • That no matter how unbelievably terrified I am during the tests, all the terror can be wiped away in an instant by a happy, happy result.

Happy, happy day!

Thank you to everyone whose good wishes got me through this week and to this happy, happy result.

  • Dear Andrea, relieved to know this. Thank God. In fact, when reading your post last week, the beautiful song from the Hindi movie “3 Idiots” was playing in my mind – “All is Well” 🙂 It is the lead character’s way of reassuring himself during trying times. Now, indeed, All izz Well.

    Oh, by the way, great minds think alike !! (that is, your post title and the song playing in my mind that day, he..he..)

    I am not surprised but very relieved that you are no longer worrying about this. Here’s to continued good results until we are very old and our hearts are worn out from too much happiness. Remember, I am relying on you my friend to grow old with me so that we can laugh in the sunshine with our grandchildren, drink and eat and be merry, and help each other get our support hose back to our knees when they roll down to our ankles. Much love.
