The Hellhole

I didn't want to write anything about this earlier because I didn't want to think about it, but my mom recently had a mammogram and they found something. Yesterday morning, very early, she went in for a needle biopsy. Even though we didn't expect the results until Monday or Tuesday, her doctor called her late this afternoon and it's nothing - a calcium deposit, absolutely nothing to worry about. Don't have the vocabulary adequate to express my relief...


  • Oh, thank god.

    Give her my best, eh?

  • Thank goodness. All this crap about women not having to get mammograms as often is wrong headed. A test and a relief is still better than no test and the possibility of something turning cancerous that could be caught early with testing.

  • this is good news - and what a great MD to call her earlier than expected, he/she must really care about their patients - that is really something!

  • Oh, thank goodness. I know exactly what that worry is like. Yes, what a great doctor to call back so quick with good news!

  • Thanks for all the kind comments, ya'll! Like the Helster, I have no words to express my relief!

  • Hi! Great news! Apologies for being so very late to it but... I could bore you with excuses, but I won't. I'm a terrible friend. Will try to be better. Great news, though.
    Much love,
