Pinktober and Mammogram

It's that time of the year where we are all surrounded in pink.  You just can't get away from it.  So if you haven't taken the time to get your mammogram this year, think pink, and make that appointment.  Early surveillance, in most case, yields a longer life!

Today was mammogram day.  I dread it.  It was particularly worrisome since, during the annual GYN visit, the doctor was concerned about a hardened area in my radiated breast.  But...GREAT NEWS!!!  All is well.  There are no changes from last year, and I can wait another full year before another mammogram.  Kudos to Tamoxifen and all its nasty side effects.  Three years out and I'm cancer-free!

May next year bring me continued good news...  Happy Pinktober everyone!
