6. I was a bit worried truth be told.

Even though Dr. Chin (biopsy doctor) told me she thought chances were slim for cancer I worried about it too.

When that dang lump first appeared my personal physician told me it was nothing to worry about, so I didn't, for about five years! A couple of months ago I injured a rib and the doctor at the ER noticed the lump and made me promise to get it checked out immediately. (She seemed a bit alarmed about it actually).

If it weren't for that injury who knows how long I might have gone without thinking about that lump. Now I want it and that marker thing gone.

My doctor's nurse from the VA called me to give me my options. I guess the VA is going to give me a voucher and let me shop around for a private clinic to get this surgery done. Gotta love the VA! Over the years they have treated me well that's for sure.

I'm in agreement with Thom Hartmann when he says that on some level we are all connected, that through this connection positive thoughts and vibes can have a good effect. Thank you Nay, for joining my friends and family in being worried about me. We are all glad it turned out OK.
