Update on Pink Ribbon.

Today I went back for the second ultrasound. This one was on the right side of my right breast. The ultra sound showed two small masses. Given that I had a cancerous growth on the other side, they biopsied these today. They found one that the MRI did not show. I was somewhat more relaxed today because I knew what to expect. However the pain level was greater. This was because of my breast still being tender from the first biopsy. No one told me not to take my aspirin 81 before this procedure. The doctor was going to postpone my biopsy for five day because the chance of more bleeding. My reply to the doctor was,oh heck no, its going to be done today. I told him I would sign whatever I needed, but I wanted it done today. I did not have to sign anything, I think he felt sorry for me because I was crying my eyes out. The funny thing was I hardly bled at all. The nurse that assisted the doctor, was the nurse who assisted me before. The doctor was different. The little intern was there and a different female nurse. The nurse told the doctor that I was very anxious and would tense up. It was also funny, he told the Dr. you need to be kind to her. The staff were wonderful!! But again I wait. I see Dr.Nicholson next week on Wednesday. He will tell me the results of this biopsy and what is next with my journey.


  1. Wishing you the very best of luck Susan

    I hope all turns out well for you.

    Take care.


  2. Susan stay strong! I know this is so hard and the waiting to find out is the worst! Keeping you in my prayers! Big Hugs, Linda

  3. You've got an army of well-wishes behind you--just remember that! XOXO

  4. We are all there feeling for you. I hope our thoughts and prayers help you to be that tiny we bit stronger. The waiting game must be awful.

  5. You're being so brave Susan, I truly admire you. Stay strong - and keep your sense of humour. And really don't worry about "losing your cool" over relatively trivial but oh so annoying things - scream and shout as long and loud as you like! Sending my very best heartfelt wishes to you. Cx

  6. Oh sweetie, you are a strong and fun human being, please just look for that wonderful trait in you, a gift God gave you, because that helps a lot...laugh, cry, jump, or whatever, but do it and yes, for the moment is about YOU and I know your family knows it too; when you know everything, than you will decide what attitude you want to choose..remember, your hubby and family are there for you! We are too, your far away blog friends with our prayers. Thank you for your visit and I am your new follower.
    Big hugs,

  7. Hi Susan...I just read your previous posts and got caught up with your story. First, Praise God it was found! Something that keeps me calm regardless of the things that go wrong is a deep down knowledge that God is Sovereign over ALL things, big or small...the size of the universe or of a small cell inside a tumor...
    Rely on HIM for every thing. Relax that HE knows and is in control.
    Then do what you are supposed to do.
    I am praying for you now...and will be thinking about you and keeping up with you.
    Bless you,

  8. Hi Susan....Thanks so much for your visit to my blog today (Sunday) and for your comment, too.

    So many women have already walked the path you are on but that doesn't make it any easier, that's for sure.

    I guess in times of darkness, I rely totally on God to get me through. He is, after all, in charge of every aspect of our lives.

    I ask myself and then answer these questions, which were asked of me by another person years ago: Who is in charge? Who's in control? Who calls the shots? Who's the boss?

    Plus, our heavenly Father is a KIND and LOVING boss, not a business-as-usual one, like the supervisor at your place of work.

    God be with you now, Susan, and by your side, holding your hand, for all the days, months and years to come. Susan

  9. I've been on vacation but I wanted to tell you good luck tomorrow. Hang in there.
