Sorry, I've not been around the blog world very much lately. I have felt so physically drained lately, I just tend to collapse on the sofa when I get home with no energy for anything! Anyway, I'm here now after a most emotional day. Very recently I found a small lump in the area between my breast & underarm. Now, grown-up woman that I am(!), I am always absolutely petrified of going to see my doctor & only go when it is really, really necessary. This was obviously one of those times. So I went to see my doctor this morning & she was fabulous, very reassuring. We all have 'the dreaded C' in the very back of our minds, don't we? I'm very lucky in that breast cancer hasn't affected anyone to date in my family, so thought it was unlikely. However, that didn't stop me quaking like a jelly in the waiting room before I went in. Thankfully my doctor thought it was probably a slight infection in my lymph glands, left over from when I had tonsilitus a couple of months ago. She said it should be fine & just to be safe, she asked me to go back in a couple of weeks time to double check. Andy accompanied me to the surgery & the look of relief on my face when I came out must have been a picture! I've had a few days of worrying & now feel so lucky. Having worked with a lady in my previous job who was going through breast cancer, I know how hard her struggle was. She is now fine as it was picked up early & she has had successful treatment, so please - anyone who is reading this & isn't sure of any lumps & bumps that might have appeared, please please please go & get yourself checked out to be safe.
Thanks to everyone who comments on my blog & thanks also to those who simply read what I waffle on about - I appreciate all my visitors & just wanted to tell you all!
