First, I'd like to thank each of you for your lovely birthday wishes. It was very kind of you and so wonderful to be remembered. I don't post terribly often but I do peek in and keep track of things going on. <smile> Second, I'd like to be greedy and ask for a birthday gift --- or maybe it's offer a gift to you! KEEP TRACK OF YOUR DOCTOR APPTS, PLEASE!!! While on vacation I received a call that my mammogram was 'abnormal'. (My first calls were to Diane (Dianed) and Beth (Bessieboo) to talk me through this and help me research. I spent my birthday getting a repeat mammogram, an ultrasound, a repeat ultrasound, and finally a meeting announcing that they were sending me for a biopsy because the radiologist feels theres a problem. I called Jay (Jay52) who talked to me while I was in the car and gave me the courage to walk in for the appt. I was sent to a breast specialist/surgeon who did her own ultrasound and states there is no problem and no need for a biopsy. I now have conflicting diagnoses. I called the hospital who refused to give me a second opinion so I sought out a different hospital and have an appt for a second opinion with another breast specialist/surgeon. I'm not out of the woods yet so we'll see what she recommends. I was one of the ones closely involved with Diane when she went through her nightmare last year and I know what it cost her. Now I wait to see if I join her ranks. MEN, NOT ONLY WOMEN, NEED TO STAY ON TOP OF ALL OF THEIR APPTS AND TESTS!!! Get what you need to stay safe and healthy! Check your blood pressure, your glucose levels, your cholesterol... All of my other annual tests panned out perfectly but it can be that one that you take for granted that can hurt you. Please, friends, do what you need to do and take care of yourselves!

Kathy Lee-I hope everything works out but you want to be sure. My mom had some severe back pain and it turns out she has lymphoma. An MRI picked it up and she is finishing her radiation treatments. Luckily it doesn't seem to be anywhere else. (And I've had my mammogram already this year, because I have a very good friend with stage 4 breast cancer at age 51.
