So, I had a huge breakdown last night. And if I start not making sense, forgive me. I have a lot of thoughts right now.

I have had gallstones for a little over four years now. I’ve modified my diet and always kept it under check and have only had a couple attacks. Well, it’s getting uncomfortable now. No pain, it doesn’t hurt; but I can feel it up against my rib cage. I’m having to come to terms that there’s no more delaying it, and I’m going to have to have surgery. BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD MIX with me and surgery!

I have also had lump under my arm that comes and goes that no one could ever diagnose for about 10 years now, and an uncomfortable pain I was starting to have in my breast on the same side a few months ago. Well, the pain has done nothing but get worse and worse and worse. It hurts SO bad, I can barely stretch my arm or back to do anything without having pain. Last week I just about hit the floor in hysteric sobs when I realized I could feel something that WAS NOT part of what is supposed to be there!

A little background: I have a family history of breast cancer. My grandmother has undergone a number of surgeries for it. It’s now come back, and she has only been given a maximum of a couple more years (with chemo). Ever since I was able to really have a say-so in doctors visits I have been begging, pleading and yelling for SOMEONE to give me a mammogram, and still have YET for anyone to grant it to be because “I’m just too young to have cancer.” I’m sorry, but NO WAY!!!

I broke down sobbing for half an hour last night before my hubby realized I was seriously upset (men lol) and came to lie down in bed with me. He said that he’s always going to take care of me no matter what, and he’s not going to think the worst until it happens. He just didn’t realize that I HAVE been thinking the worst for the last two and a half months and it’s finally taken me over!

Anyway, he had me finally make an appointment for next Monday morning for BOTH points of issue. My mom is going to come up to watch Little Bit so he doesn’t have to go, and hubby is going to try his best to take time off so he can go with me because I’m SO SCARED and absolutely just DON’T want to go face that alone!

On a lot happier notes:

Little Bit got an ENTIRE mouth-full of teeth last week… ALL at once! Boy, was that fun! He’s walking around everywhere and now that he’s got some chompers, enjoys eating more big boy meals with Mommy and Daddy! He turned 15 months last Monday, the 17th. Time has flown by MUCH too quickly!
