It never hurts to double-check.

Back in December, I got pretty freaked out about a line of lumps along my right arm.

I fretted. I frenzied.

And celebrated big when I got the good news.

Two weeks ago, I had the long-awaited ultrasound and left to the words “I wouldn’t worry if I were you”.

And I didn’t.

Yesterday my oncologist gave me a cheery call. She’s ordered another look at a reactive lymph node.

Lucky me. More practice at trusting my body. More practice at not worrying.

Pretty soon, I’ll be a pro.

    Ok, so how long do you have to practice this time, before the appointment? nnI am going to watch AD some more since I don’t get all the references yet. I LOVE popcorn and AD.

    My oncologist has ordered another ultrasound. I’ll get a call when it’s booked.

    The quote is from the pilot
    Narrator: Thanks to the family’s largesse, Buster has studied everything… from Native American tribal ceremonies… to cartography, the mapping of uncharted territories.

    Buster: Actually, I’m studying cartography now… the mapping of uncharted territories.

    Michael: Sure. Hasn’t everything already sort of been discovered, though… by, like, Magellan and Cort
    NASA, you know?

    Buster: Oh, yeah, yeah. Those people. Those guys did a pretty good job.

    Michael: Right.

    Buster: But there’s still, you know—

    Lucille: Never hurts to double-check.
