I'm normal! Right now the most beautiful word in the English language is normal! All of your prayers, happy thoughts, positive chi, well wishes, finger, toe and eye crossings worked! My appointment was at 10:15 so of course I was there at 9:30. They took me in without much waiting and did the extra views. Then more waiting. It was pretty busy there, almost not enough chairs for people that were waiting. Anyway after what seemed like a million years (must have been around 20 minutes)they called me in to do the ultra sound. They said they would only do this if the doctor thought I needed it. Which made me even more nervous. So I lay in the ultra sound room for less than a minute when the doctor walked in. Bless her heart the first words out of mouth after she introduced herself were, "Your mammos are normal, everything looks fine." The hundred pound weight that was hanging on my heart was gone. She explained that because I have dense breasts sometimes when the mammo machine squishes your boobs it can create areas that look even more dense so, she wanted to double check with the ultra sound. She was wonderful. She explained everything as she did the ultra sound - showing me my lymph nodes, I have a couple of cysts that are incidental. She explained that she marked them for future reference. Every other word out of her mouth was normal. Normal, normal, normal. She apologized for making me worry and was glad that I was proactive about getting in earlier. I did have to go back to work after my tests but, I celebrated by buying myself a nice lunch and I wandered through the local toy store. Thank you again so much for your support. It means more than you'll ever know. And now, please join me in a happy dance!
