Yes girls, you know the question. Hopefully you have the right answers. The year is winding down and the question is: Have YOU had your mammogram yet?
As much as I hated to, I had mine. November will be MY month to get MY mammogram. I've had four of them since last November. And I happily exclaim as of yesterday, I do not go back until next November. The beginning of my mammogram history. Next November was music to my ears. Even though I felt pretty sure the test would be good, I just had that feeling, you know the one. "Why didn't I bring someone with me?" The few people I shared this info with all had to work. And I thought "no big deal". You know, NO BIG DEAL, until they tell you "do not remove your robe". Then they herd you down the hallway to another special examination room.
Yesterday was a bit different. I really liked the mammographer. She did the last one and was wonderful then too. She told me yesterday she loved her job. I could tell. She was great at putting me at ease. She told me she never heard of an xray tech getting hugs from people. Hugs of relief and I'm so scared kinda hugs. She knows she has a gift and is willing to share what she knows (from experience too I might add). I told her I thought she was awesome! (Especially compared to the girls at the "other" hospital.)
The cons of getting older. So, there goes it, the year is almost up girls, it's time to get your mammogram!!!
PS - interestingly, two men were there getting breast exams too. So fellas, keep that in mind. Men are susceptible also!!
