Sharing My Bad News Moment

EDIT: I wrote this Friday, publishing Monday. I hesitated to share but today after some thought I feel I want to.

My rose garden yesterday. This is the most beautiful time of year in  the garden.

I just got some bad news.  I found a lump and it turned out to be breast cancer.  I just found out the test results. I don't know very much yet. I met with a nurse "navigator" and she was upbeat about my cure chances because it is very early.  I am going to learn a lot more about breast cancer soon. More than I wanted to know in fact.  Looks like the next year or so are going to be very "unique" for me.

Please if you have a lump too go get it checked out. I have no history of breast cancer in my family, this is a shocker, but at the same time I knew it was possible.

Bummer. I thought running that 5k run for breast cancer research and buying those pink things gave me immunity or something.

BUT, I have excellent medical care in the United States.  And it was caught early.

I am tempted to run from the doctors but I have to face this.   Good thing I had a good think about acceptance when I wrote February's  Purple Thursday for Peace post, here, and I have taken it to heart.  This is bad news but there will be some really great silver linings somewhere. Like maybe I will do the things I always say I will and never actually do!  Like write a book.

I am reading back on this as I write and can hardly believe it.


On a lighter note, I bought eight polishes today. I bought the entire Julie G Gumdrops set through Groupon and Hard Candy crush on gold and Rimmel Sunny Days.

I am going to be fine, no matter what. Will keep you updated when anything of significance happens.
