Grateful Saturday - Cancellations, House inspections and founds !

...for cancellations. It means I didn't have to wait 3-4 weeks for a mammogram and breast ultrasound.

On Wednesday around midday I first tried to book in ; it was over a 2 week wait at my local .The lady was so NOT helpful too. So, I tried elsewhere at three other nearby places and it was an even longer wait. 

I rang my GP clinic and the receptionist checked with Dr who said that 3-4 weeks was ok to wait. It would give time for whatever I had to settle down.

HUH !  

[He told me it was not as urgent as Wednesday/Thursday but to come back next week after the mammogram & u/s.]

I was terrified and  I though I did not want to wait that long, I decided I may as well book in.

I gave up trying anywhere else.I rang back to first local place, it was 10mins to 5pm Wed 4th May, and she started to say  ...

" Okay...  but the first date I have is {pause}...6th May ...{pause} hang-on that can't be right. Can you hold ? "

She comes back and says ...

" Yes, it's right ... 6th May, we've had a cancellation. Does that suit you ?"

" Yes , OF COURSE !! " I almost scream down the phone.

I don't have a lump as such ; my breasts are always lumpy. I have had several breast u/s and at least 1-2 mammograms over the years.

Last weekend , I had some soreness/infection under my left armpit. I got a script for antibiotics for that via after hours GP clinic.

Tuesday night I noticed a milky 'discharge' on my left bra cup. 
It was only a small spontaneous leak and then I found could express from both breasts even though I ceased BFing 7 months ago.

At first I wondered if it was because I'd snuggled two gorgeous twin bubbas for an hour {from different families} on Tuesday morning and was talking about breastfeeding twins with their mums. (This was just our Church playgroup too) 

The discharge was streaked with old blood ?. So I freaked.

I rang the local GP clinic first thing Wednesday even though they had no female GP's at the moment I didn't care. The receptionist was very helpful and gave me a 3pm appointment. Then rang me back 30 mins later for a 10.15am appointment.

Interestingly, the DR's eyes popped and he just about fell off his seat when he did the maths and realised my twins were BF for 4 yrs. He thinks it is very RARE. I told him not according to the Internet.

I was pleased he had a female student DR there ... because I am a prude
Anyway I won't get any results till Monday. 
I am OK , but just you know, terrified as you imagine.

I am also grateful the people who came to view our house Thursday, came back again today with their parents and / brother for a second inspection. Fingers crossed.

...Hubby found my pedometer under the bed this morning [It's my secret obsession to walk 10,000 steps a day ]

...That Bunning's staff found his mobile phone in their carpark at almost 9pm on Thursday night [he dropped it unaware while putting the kids in car seats probably].They called us secs after we got home. [P.S. We had popped in quickly for their Mother's day night - we are not usually still there at 9pm]   
Of course this cartoon is what I was thinking about ...
AS if ...
Got to keep a sense of humour ...
So, what's making you smile today?

Fingers crossed your results come back all clear!

How lucky is your DH to have his phone returned and so quickly too!

Hope all is well Trish. Had to have a check myself a few years ago - even though I was pretty sure it was a blocked duct. Still the doctors are cautious and I guess that's a good thing.

Best of luck. Let us know how you get on.

I hope the results are all clear.

And BRAVO feeding twins for 4 years!! A friend fed her triplets for nearly 2, it's amazing what our bodies can do :)

Also, manogram = win!

And (lol) really hope the house sells quickly for you too :)

Hmmmm what makes me smile? That manogram pic :P

Alex said...

Haven't had one and the thought scares me.

Hope the results are all clear.


PS Men would love the penis squasher. There would be TAB bets on the results, I'm sure.
