    Oh No

    I was called back after my screening mammogram and thought nothing of it because of a history of cysts. It was when they wanted me to see a surgeon to schedule a biopsy that made my antenna go up. I remember that sinking feeling when the surgeon came back from viewing my films......IF was all she kept saying and proceeded to go through the whole process of surgery and chemo and how advanced the treatment plans are these days.....ugh. I had to wait four days to get the results. Things have never been the same since. I've crossed over into another reality.
