Spillin' the Beans

First things, first....NO I AM NOT PREGNANT (nor are we trying). But the beans still must be spilled. So here it goes....

I found a lump. I had been calling it a spot, but nobody understood me when I said spot....so lump it was. I didn't even want to admit it to myself, but when talking to my mother-in-law about it (who has/had breast cancer) she said-yelled-screamed GO TO THE DOCTOR... Yes, it was SCARY to admit that a lump was what I had!!!

It was a long wait (a whole 4 days) before I was able to get into the doctor, and then another week before I got a mammogram/ultrasound scheduled. But finally this week I got the news I needed to hear. I AM FINE!!!! The lump that I was feeling was just an enlarged lymph node and the two additional lumps that the nurse found were normal. YAY! Praise the Lord.

It was very intense few weeks and I was scared to death, but am so glad that my lumps are "unremarkable"-as the doctor said. Guess being "unremarkable" is a good thing! The mammogram was an experience in and of itself....and that is all I have to say about that. Hopefully the story ends there!

Now onto more exciting news....We are going away this weekend. It is a much needed break. I have an idea on where we are going, but John won't spill the beans and tell me anything for sure....just away, in a hotel, and on the beach!!! I can't wait to have a relaxing mini-vacation and hopefully get some great photos while we are gone!

Pray for good weather, healthy kids, and safe travels!

Thanks for checking in on us....

Many Blessings,
