Petite, fingers crossed that your friend's mammo anomaly turns out to be nothing.
Was pretty chilly today. My housekeeper had to leave suddenly when Hines V.A. called to say her DH had fallen getting out of the car when he drove himself to his dialysis session. (Because he needed an iron infusion Monday, he was supposed to have called an Uber and she would pick him up after work. He was too proud not to drive),
I am now in size 12 jeans (started out in 18/20) and size M tees & sweaters!
When I awoke today I wasn't sure I'd be able to do the WDCB Holiday Hoot because I was still coughing spasmodically. Managed to reach my doctor in mid-aft., and she told me it was ok to take a 20 mg. prednisone I have on hand, and that it should kick in by airtime; plus an extra MucinexDM, which I did. Got to the studio, was able to do the preliminary pre-show "living room" set (to entertain the other performers, staff, volunteers & donors--it's public radio) just fine. In fact I was surprised how well my voice felt & sounded. Then I made the mistake of having a cup of half-caff between the 2-1/2 bottles of water I drank. Ooopsie--that, and the fact that it was bone-dry inside the studio, caused a nasty throat tickle during the second verse of the first song, leading to lots of coughing. Since the song was my "It Sucks Being Sick at Christmas," it was sort of apropos--in fact, the DJ loved it. (Half the performers were in various phases of colds, and two duo acts had to cancel). Fortunately, I was able to salvage my voice for the other two songs (my singing partner took lead and I was able to close-mic my harmonies) and I was back to normal (thanks to a Ricola, more water, and Singer's Saving Grace throat spray) for the group finale. (The show will be archived for the next two weeks at www.wdcb.org).
Has anyone kept track of other ladies who used to post here but moved on once they were done with active treatment? Just curious.
Diagnosed at 64 on routine annual mammo, no lump. OncotypeDX 16. I cried because I had no shoes...but then again, I won’t get blisters....
