A Booby Update…

No, not those kind…

But parts of me (not my feet) might have been a little blue as they got pulled and pushed and squished into the cold glass and metal of the mammography machine yesterday.  Good news, the radiologist did not see anything to cause concern, declaring me momentarily clear and cancer free.  Yay me!!

But as anyone who’s gone through something similar (or maybe has a smidgen of anxiety issues), there’s always a niggling little thought in the back of my mind that they might have missed something or something is there and it’s too small to be seen yet.  I even asked my internist why they don’t just do some kind of scan of my whole body.  She smiled nicely and said in my case it wouldn’t be helpful.

I tell myself to stop the worry, tamp down the crazy and get on with life.  Which I’ve been learning to do pretty well.  I call it my new normal.  But I admit I sometimes need a Xanax — actually, sometimes hubby begs me to take one — to drift peacefully off to sleep…

Seriously, though, life is very good and I’m feeling great!
