I loved the show “Say Yes to the Dress.” Loved it. And since that was in our baby birthing years, hubby let me watch it when I was a big pregnant mess. So most Fridays we would watch an episode or two. For some reason, I loved how Randy always referred to the brides’ chest as “the girls”. I just loved that.
Well, my girls got a workout today.
Not that kind of workout, get your mind out of the gutter.
Yup, I am telling you I had my first mammogram.
I am a year overdue, but I got it done. And it was the quickest test I have ever had. I was in and back out to my car in 25 minutes. The technician was fantastic. She explained things, she worked with me to get where I needed to be “on” the machine, and then took the time to talk me through results information and reminding me not to freak if there is a call back for more images.
Ladies, it wasn’t as bad as I expected. Really. If you are the age where the doctor or midwife recommends you get a mammogram, don’t put it off for a year like I did. Get it scheduled, get it done.
Consider it self care.Survive til you Thrive!
