    Hi, Carol! Don't you have a mammogram and ultrasound scheduled for June?

      Hi, Carol! I've been anxious to write to you but wasn't able to log in to the site for a while. Fortunately, I still had Greg's e-mail address so I finally notified him of the problem. He checked into it and said there was an outage at the facility that handles their servers. I'm no tech person but that sounds to me like no one else could log in either.

      Anyway... YEAH!!! I'm so relieved about your exam. (You're probably thinking to yourself, "YOU'RE relieved?!) Did they say what they saw? Was it calcium deposits or what? Did they say anything about the pains you've been having in that breast?

      I think that would be good feedback for MSK (re their phone message). Hopefully, someone will pay attention.

      I should be making my mammo appointment shortly.

      Such great news. : )

      Love,

      Grace

      Grace, thank you so much! And, no, I did not think "YOU'RE relieved?" I thought "What a lovely human being!"

      I wasn't told what they saw, even though I asked the tech. After another mammo of Righty, I waited in my pretty blue MSKCC cloth robe and was given a form letter with "Normal mammogram" checked.

      I intend to tomorrow suggest that they revise their robo phone message.

      I did hear about WN's outage, but somehow I had no trouble getting in on Wednesday (if that was the problem day). Maybe it was a West Coast--Midwest thing.

      Let me know (as I know I said) when your mammo is. As I'm sure I've said before (it's my shtick), I'm glad primates don't have as many breasts as do cats, for instance.

      Hope your weekend is fun!

      Love,

      Carol

      Oh, my gosh - that's funny (the primates/cats number of breasts comment). No, I hadn't heard that. Love it. And I totally agree.

      That's interesting that you could get in to the WhatNext web site. I couldn't get in for several hours - felt really disconnected. Maybe you're right - maybe it was just a West Coast/Midwest thing.

      I'm thinking you're breathing a lot easier these days. I always do after the "all clear". I know I get anxious about the exams but sometimes I don't realize how anxious I've really been until afterwards. I've actually had sore muscles from being so tensed up.

      I just made my mammo appointment today - July 19 at 3:00. I always try to get an early appointment because they always seem to get more and more behind as the day goes on. But, it would be even later than July 19 if I didn't take that appointment so I just took it. I want to get it over with. I'll take some reading with me. Yeah, right, like I'll be calm enough to read. I'm sure you'll be hearing from me beforehand!

      We've signed up for a cooking class for Saturday afternoon. It's at an Italian restaurant. The chef demonstrates preparing the dish then we go into their kitchen and make it ourselves - under the chef and assistant chef's watchful eyes. Then we enjoy it with a glass of wine. Tomorrow is supposed to be 105 and Saturday is supposed to be 106 so I'm thinking there will be some swimming this weekend, too. How about you - what are you up to this weekend?

      Love,

      Grace

    Good grief - another one - and on the same page again. I didn’t actually click on the link but I’m assuming it’s bad stuff.
