'Twas the night before Mammogram, when all through the house
Not a child was stirring, not even a dog;
The keys were hung by the door with care,
In hopes that morning soon would be there;
The women were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of healthy breast danced in their heads,
Twas the night before Mammogram and she is nervous.
Today we brought Jesse to my parents house to be social with their dogs. They have two dogs, a medium sizes mutt and a wiener dog. (And they have three cats) She did great when we got there. All the dogs sniffed each other for awhile and Jesse even responded well to the cats.
We thought it would be a great idea to do this that way if we go out of town we have someone to watch the dog without them having to go up to our house. Jesse gets a little nervous sometimes and then she poops everywhere.
And now we are watching football. Go Rams! (Go Cowboys from Kathy)

I asked myself this question just this past Friday.
"I feel a lump in my breast, now what?"
I am only 24 years old, I have a 2 years old son, a stepdaughter and a loving wife, what is this? The first thing I did what ask my wife to feel and make sure that I wasn't feeling things. Sure enough she feels something too. Now the panic sets in. I keep feeling it everyday to see if it went away, it didn't. Then I start to notice that my left breast feels bigger and it is sagging on one side. So my first day at work (I work at a doctors office) I make an appt to have an exam. The doctor also feels it and doesn't look like it is anything good.
The first she thing says is "You need to get a mammogram done."
Then I said "What do you think it is? Because I have had an infected Milk Duct before, but it didn't really feel like this."
She said "Welll its not and infected milk duct, and you have a family history of Breast Cancer so I think the next step is to get a mammogram and and then we will go from there."
I think to myself, I am only 24 years old could this really be happening?
And now I wait. That is what this game is hurry up and wait. And now I worry and wait for my mammogram on Monday. While I am waiting, I can't help but want to spend even more time with my family especially my son. To every woman out there, do your self-exams and get your yearly exams, don't put it off because it can only do good.
