Last week I went for my routine annual GYN visit. The doctor sent me along for a routine mammogram and an ultrasound to follow up on a few minor issues related to January's surgery.
I've had a mammogram before, so I knew what to expect. And I didn't expect to worry. I was more concerned about the ultrasound, especially when the technician called in a second technician to view the images.
But today I had put all of it out of my mind. I got everyone off to school. I made my grocery list, went to daily Mass, stopped at Dunkin' Donuts to get my free iced coffee, then went food shopping. As I opened the front door juggling my keys, purse and half a cup of iced coffee, I heard the phone ringing and dropped the coffee just inside the door.
It was the imaging center, calling to let me know that I needed to schedule a followup mammogram as well as a breast ultrasound. And I get to wait until Friday to have this done--and who knows how long before I'll have the results.
Good luck putting that out of my mind.
I think my new rosary will be getting quite the workout these next few days!
