Those are the words you want to hear after you
go for your mammogram!
I was scheduled for an ultrasound first,
but when I was taken back to "the room"
the technician said she had a few questions first.
It was kind of odd....
I thought anyway, first she asked me my last name,
it took me back to the days when my mom was ill
and they were checking to see how "sane" she was,
then she asked me my birth date....
again odd I thought,
then she asked me Why I was there for an ultrasound?
I explained my history of fibrocystic disease since the age of
15 and how the last 3-4 yrs after having a mammogram
being called back for an ultrasound and going thru all that worry
yada, yada, yada....
Well, she informed me...
IF they do an ultrasound ~without~ a "need" for one....
my insurance won't pay for it!!
You see they scheduled me for the ultrasound before the
mammogram....Not MY Fault!
So, she had to go back and speak to "the powers that be"
about 5 mins. later in she comes and said
they must first do the mammogram and then if there
was a need they would do the ultrasound.
the radiologist would have to read my results
(when it typically takes 2 wks)
to see if there was concern enough to do the ultrasound!
My mammogram was given a 10 min. time slot.
I was in there for 1/2 hour....
the most thorough, gentle, mammogram
I've ever had!
No ultrasound needed!
Now had I just gone for a mammogram with no
ultrasound scheduled as well....
I would have been called back in
and gone thru all that worry!
Funny how things happen sometimes!
Then hubby and I were going to meet up for dinner
but decided to just come Home and he would
pick up some steaks and grill out....
perfect night for a dinner for
2 on the porch!
~and a bottle of Wine~
Thank you honey!

in our Home!
Hope your evening was as lovely as mine!
Thanks for all of your well wishes yesterday
