What a Boob....

Hello Folks!

just chiming in here for a moment...
I've been keeping a secret from you all ~

I had an appointment for a double core biopsy today (right breast)
and am a bit sore...don't really want to dwell on anything negative, so I'm staying hopeful & positive that my results will come back good....hope to
get my results back either thursday or friday...
so, if you have a second to think a good thought, send up one for me?
I am trying to work on some new punch needle patterns,
but I am sore on that side so I can't. *blech*.
but I'll be back at it soon enough!
will show you sneak-peeks soon :)
....have a beautiful day my sweet Friends!!
blessings from the farm,
Lori

  26. Hope your soreness leaves you sooner than expected. The good news is that doctors today are so extremely cautious. Some times we go through hell waiting for benign results because of this, but well worth the peace of mind. Hoping for that peace of mind for you!

  46. Hi Lori,

    I went through a breast biopsy a few years ago...can't remember what it was but it was the kind where you are laying down (very still) on a table and your boob hangs through a hole. Anyway, I literally feel your pain! And I know the mental anguish of waiting for results. I was lucky and my results were good. I'm praying for you sister-friend!

  72. Hi Lori,
    A few months ago my doctor sent me over to Dartmouth/Hitchcock to have the same thing done. They gave me this handy-dandy little 'ice pack' that you put in your bra. Helped a lot with the discomfort. I was given good news. Keep positive thoughts, and we will all say an extra prayer for you.
