Check'em out

I've been MIA for awhile, I would like to apologize for that.  I know it's pretty disappointing to take time to visit a blog and the author hasn't updated in quite some time.

The new job is going pretty good.  It's an entirely new venue for me so I have had to work on not getting frustrated with myself for not knowing what I'm doing. 

This last week has been very busy, I worked till 5:00-5:15 every day, had VBS from 6:00-8:30 getting home around 9:00, prepared for a garage sale to be held on Friday and Saturday, and also try to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.   As you can tell, I've lived through the week to tell about it.

This week is not as busy but already has given me lots to ponder.  While in the shower Monday night I found a lump, it was hard, red, and sore.  Logic is telling me that this needs attention but that it's probably nothing to worry about, I'll call the doctor in the morning.  My heart however didn't feel the same way, my mother passed away at my age from cancer.  Mind you it was lung cancer and she lived a different lifestyle then I do, but the fear still crept in.  I don't do my self exams very often, I wasn't doing one Monday night, I think I noticed because it was painful. 

I called the doctor's office Tuesday morning and was blessed with an opening first thing.  Come to find out it was an abscessed cyst in the need of draining.  After a small procedure in the doctors office (I won't go into details) I walked out with a lighter heart.

What have I learned:  not to take life for granted, don't jump to conclusions (we'll see how long it takes to master that one), perform my monthly self-breast exams, and live each day to the fullest.  Life can change in the matter of seconds and we don't always get a second chance.

Glad you're back posting, Sheryl and sooooo glad you went straight ahead and got to the bottom of the 'lump'. Very scary for you...but great that the doctor could take care of it/you right away! xo

Glad it was nothing to worry about. And thanks for the reminder! I have a magnet that says: "Feel your boobies."

Golly, you gave me a scare there for a minute. Glad it was just a cyst but it pays to be careful.
