Call me "fibroglandular"

I got my mammogram results back! I am OK. My breasts are fibroglandular, which is not uncommon, and anything that appears suspicious hasn't changed over the past two years.* Yes, there is something going on with my lymph nodes, but since it's consistent on both sides, I don't have to worry any more about cancer.

I will follow up with my doctor. Because just because we know what it's not doesn't mean we know what it is.

But I don't have to do it now. This week I have two medical appointments scheduled -- suspicious mole and a dental followup -- and that's enough for now.

For now, I'll just be grateful that I'm OK. And I am. Very, very grateful.

*Which is why I'm so fortunate I was able to get into this hospital, where I've been having my mammograms done for decades. The doctor was able to compare 2020 to 2019 and 2018 immediately because the files were at her fingertips.
