lemonland :: time to squeeze your lemons or someone's you love!
in the tub, in bed, on the couch, check for signs of breast cancer.
i finally had a normal blood pressure this week for the 1st time in a year.
a few weeks ago, i had a breast cancer scare in my remainining breast.
my oncologist referred me for a mammogram, ultrasound + mri.
i was unnerved + tried not to think of facing another mastectomy + chemo + radiation, but tried to tell myself not to be surprised because my cancer is an aggressive type + likely to recur. i was freaked out, but what a relief when the tests came back, no evidence of disease! i can concentrate on my daughter's upcoming birthday + mother's day giveaways + blogroll :)
i try to "celebrate the temporary" + not wait for tomorrow, live today!

You are so brave! Thank you for sharing about this as all the rest of us need to remember to "squeeze our lemons" (funny!). You're doing great & important work.
ModMom - You are such a positive person and I'm happy to hear this news. Sending positive and healing thoughts to you.
Wow...that is awesome -- congratulations -- you are a survivor.
That's such wonderful news. I've been thinking of you and checking often to hear the update, and I couldn't be happier to hear that you can breathe a little easier and enjoy mod*tot's bday. Happy mother's day!
Took that train one too many times... and am still learning how not to freak out when waiting for results. So very happy that you have it on the run, so very happy that your spring is now a happy one. Enjoy the mother's day kisses.
Something in lime green or orange. Is orange the new black? I heard that somewhere!
