Breast Cancer Awarness Month

Friends, if you have never done your own self exam; do one TODAY!!!! There is not a better time than right now to get to know your boobies! Can I say that? Well, it is my blog and I am the author of this post so Yes I can say BOOBIES!!!!
So some of you know that last month I went to the Dr. and she found a lump in my Left Boob, I am a little disappointed in that boob, since it is the perkiest and largest of the two I have. No mine are not created equally. He He, that was funny.
Now I have to simply wait for the results to come back and to see the Surgeon on the 20Th of October! What a wait, and yes it is hard to not think of anything else. I have done all sorts of research on lumps, there are a lot!
I do however keep coming back to a conversation I had with my OB/GYN at my 6 wk, post baby appointment 3 years ago, the conversation went like this:

Me: A few of my mom's cousins and aunts have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer and I am concerned.
Dr.: What about your Mom, Sister, or Grandmother?
Me: No, thankfully
Dr.: Then you have NOTHING to worry about!
Me: OK.
Well if you do a little research you will find out that 70% of those ladies with Breast Cancer Do Not have family history of Breast Cancer!
Be proactive about your own health. Doctors do not know everything, and you know your body better then they do.
Now go say Good Morning to your Boobies!

Thanks for your post! I think it is something we all should be concerned about. I am keeping you in my thoughts & prayers! Wishing for the best! Please let me know if you need anything! Maybe we need to find some more books for you to become obsessed with :). Hang in there friend!

Tami-
Okay this post is just FILLED with TMI- but it is just us girls so it's okay!
The best thing is that you are taking care of it. And you are doing it now. So that is good. Remember until the results- that it can be other things too. Cysts- etc. Try not to worry......
Kindly,

Tami, I've BTDT--remember the surgery I had last year? I know how unsettling it can be to not know what's going on and to wait for answers, so if you need/want to talk...you know where to find me! Try not to worry (easier said than done) and stay in the moment--don't let your thoughts get ahead of you; stay focused on the presentand what you know right now. Hoping your "something" turns out to be a big fat NOTHING! (((HUGS))) and prayers being sent.
