Apparently Daddy isn't just a skimmer as he tries to make me believe. He came home with a box of outlet plug thingies on Tuesday night and before he could tell me about it they were in place (because I saw them and put them there!). :)
And apparently y'all aren't skimmers either. Wow. I was really amazed at some of the comments I received on my last post. I tried not to make any big deal about the "something". Thank you so very much for every single comment. And every thought and prayer and vibe flying my direction.
I had my appointment this morning which went about like I expected. I hadn't been there in two years since my follow-up after Lila was born so it was really nice to see my doctor again and catch up with her (she seems more like a good friend than my doctor).
I tried to explain and even showed her where the tiny bump is. She couldn't feel it. I'm not exactly skinny and the bump is very small so her normal method of examination wasn't raising any red flags for her. She did explain that I have fibrocystic breasts (though the bump is in a lympth area under my arm). Funny how we don't exactly know what breasts feel like besides our own (at least most of us don't).
She has scheduled me for a diagnostic mammogram (extra thorough, oh hooray) and also breast sonogram (must be the digital thing I read about while trying not to worry). This is scheduled for Monday at 1:30. The scheduling secretary said WOW! That's fast! I guess they had a cancellation because otherwise I wouldn't be able to get in until January.
Overall the doctor said there were no red flags to her but the fibrocystic condition means the breast tissue is lumpy and thick and irregular and it would be difficult to know if there was anything unusual. She's the most cautious doctor I've ever had and in this case I'm glad about it. So next step is mammograms and then more waiting for at least a few days to hear back from them I would guess.
Thank you so much for your concern and well wishes. I'm knitting as much as possible to avoid looking at all of the worry-enabling information on the internet. I've nearly finished a short sock in the past day and have two (knit) Christmas gifts ready to go under the tree as soon as it's up!
Take good care of every little thing. :)
