I swear to you it was a mean little man that invented the mammogram machine, honestly no-one has been able to come up with a better test to check your boobs than that monstrosity. Yes in case you have not yet realized today ( this morning actually) I had my first mammogram. The woman running the machine was wonderful and did as much as she could to make it relatively painfree, but OH MY LORD, that was not what I would call a pleasant experience, BUTTTTT all that aside, I do not want to scare anyone away, it is far better to experience two minutes of discomfort then the alternative, early detection is the key. I am just keeping my fingers crossed that I am an every other year test not an every year test,
The joys of turning 50, mammograms, FOBT tests ( poop test people, yes,yet another indignity we go through to make sure we are healthy) as much as I appear to be complaining I am forever grateful that I live where I live and that all of these tests are free of charge, So for the sake of a minute or two of discomfort I receive the gift of knowing that I am healthy, So all in all totally worth it.
So Dressing for convenience of testing, adding some sunny colour because it is RAINING today and yes I mean holy toledo raining. Today I expect this rain should remove all of the remaining snow in my front yard and really make dent in the backyard. In honour of spring I am a bumblebee today.( Please ignore the really bad Hair, tried something different this morning and with all the disrobing, redressing and the rain it is a bit of a mess)
