So, I haven't had much to say in the past 8 days - sue me! (not really, please, I spent all of my money at Nordstrom). I have a topic now.
I had My First Ever Mammogram this morning (I'm not kidding - that's what they called it in my confirmation letter. Not exactly like My First Baby Doll!) It is definitely an experience. My girlfriend at work sent me a comic strip about a week ago showing a woman whose boobs were shaped like boxes with the caption "She just got a Mammogram." I didn't get it then, but I get it now!! There is nothing quite like standing topless in front of a big X-Ray machine. Luckily, my technician was very good. She explained everything very well and had quite gentle hands.
What a weird thing, though. It's like you have your boob positioned on a shelf, then the upper shelf comes down and it squeezes your boob in the machine. You have to be still and hold your breath while they take the picture. Thank goodness there were only 4 shots. Oh well, I needed it done and I'm glad I did it. I am also glad I don't have to do it every month!
