The End Of The Lump

For those who are interested in The End Of The Lump Story:
The surgery went well, I felt fine soon after, had a nice five- or six-day (depending on whether or not you count the day of surgery) vacation during which Husband allowed me to do No Thing because I was "recovering." I love him. I sat in the sun, courting skin cancer and reading. And slept at will. The semi-circular incision was held together with steri-strips.  No big deal there.  They're still there, to my surprise. Any other place on a body there would have been flexing and they would have worn off by now. 

The Thing (soft, and the size of a golf ball, more or less) has gone back to Yale's laboratory and I'm still waiting for the final word on whether or not there were bad cells in there somewhere. I'm guessing not.
I'm feeling fine, and I still have all my parts, and they all look pretty much the way they did pre-surgery.
So that's that.

I had a good wakeup call to enjoy my life a lot more than I have been doing, and I didn't even need to suffer for it.
Imagine that.


Oh. And never again will I skip the annual mammogram.

Now isn't that a happy ending?

Thanks for the follow up.

Isn't ordinary life wonderful?

The very best wishes for continued health. A mammogram is a good idea as is self examination.

I am glad you are fully restored to the blogging world and look forward to many more of your delightful posts.

Your news is good to hear, June. I've missed your last 3 posts,???, have no idea how. I even have you on my side bar, so I'll just blame it on blogger. Glad things turned out so positive!

Hoping for the absolute best for you! Glad you are recovering nicely!

Autumn Mist said...

Such a relief, June, I can't begin to tell you. It just goes to show what we all take for granted so readily, doesn't it? I, for one, will be counting my blessings.

Congratulations on a speedy and comfortable recovery . You acted quickly and sensibly once you were worried and that's what counts .

Wake up calls are sometimes just what we need, if we don't press snooze and go back to sleep. Stay well, June and remember what you learned. Somehow, I missed this post, but I was on the road with unreliable internet sometimes.

Hilary said...

So glad to know it, June. :)

Yep. We don't skip those annual checks. I go with a friend every year. We take turns to make the appointments and phone each other. Glad the news is good for you.
