I spent yesterday afternoon at the breast clinic! Mammogram, ultrasound biopsy of the lump and maxillary! I have a 16 mm "nodule" in the outer half of my left breast which is "of concern". I get the biopsy results a week tomorrow but last time I had a lump they were able to tell me on the day that there was nothing to worry about so I am preparing myself for the worst! Hopefully any treatment can wait until after Xmas!
Meanwhile I am going to the Britain Against Cancer conference in London on Tuesday staying Monday night with my lovely daughter and going to a talk at the National Theatre by John Lithgoe, who is appearing in The Magistrate, which I have already got a ticket to see at the NTL broadcast in the new year! I have even ordered Tesco restaurant Vouchers for Strada so I can take her out to eat! I also booked 5 day passes to Longleat and I am planning a trip to Devon at Easter and a day out with my son & his family so I can tell them about his behaviour when we took him the year his sister was born!
My Slimming world counsellor asked me last night if I minded her putting me forward for coverage in the Magazine as my Gynae has been so pleased with my weight loss and my GP with the way I am controlling the diabetes all due to diet!
Onwards and upwards as they say! Can't say I relish the thought of another op, radiotherapy, or chemo but if I must I must! At least most of the food for my party in January is in the freezer! All I need to do is roll out pastry, fill the empanadillas and pasties, make the chocolate icing and caramel sauce for the cakes, and make the pork pie as demonstrated on the Great British Bake Off masterclass this week! My first venture into hot water crust pastry! At least I do not need cold hands for that!
Fingers crossed for Thursday week!
Thanks for "listening" girls!
