I have good news too about my boob recall, all is well. Yesterday with more intense diagnostic xrays and a sonogram, the radiologist admitted there was nothing there, but normal breast tissue. However he wants me to return in 6 months for another sonogram so he is absolutely sure. I could not see what he thought he detected on the screening until he ultra magnified. I asked if it could have been calcification to which he responded no nor a cyst. I think of Carol, Linda and Joan and Karen, friends in CA who all lost their fights with breast cancer years ago, Carol especially dying a very long drawn out death, and others quickly taken, along with a friend in PA who is a survivor today. So I am blessed to have this care from Mayo. To my joking repartee that he had given me a headache for nothing, Dr Uy replied that "I have a perfect record of diagnosing, I have not ever missed anything and I am not going to start with you." The nurses warned that he is a perfectionist and has been known to stand looking over the shoulder of the technician doing the sonogram or taking over the xray machine to get photos. Attention to detail, that's the right stuff.
Yesterday afternoon and this morning on my walks around the 'hood I took some ice, snow and melt photos.
|Down the corner to south 14th, roads clear snow aside|
|Under all that whiteness is the track where I like to walk, |
not possible this month
|The shadow from the pine allows the melting to become treacherous|
glassy ice. One must walk carefully, like a bear over these patches
|Melt, ice, white prevail down the street at the hockey rink and ball fields|
|The shadow of the branch resembles an irritated person, weary of winter, |
hair on end, arms extended, snapping at the grass under ice,
"be gone with you white and glassy hazard. Let the green emerge!"
|This lamppost through the barren branches will not be|
visible once the leaves come with spring. It is
spring so says the calendar, Mama Nature,
