I had to have a 2nd mammogram done today. The one I had last Monday showed an abnormality in my left breast. I've tried not to think about it all week. I figured I had just not done a thorough enough job of wiping off the antiperspirant that I stupidly put on that morning.

Bad news...it wasn't the antiperspirant. Good news...they don't think it's anything to worry about. I will have to have another diagnostic mammogram done in 6 months to see if there is any further change.

The ironic thing is, they said the change could be from my "significant weight loss" since my last mammogram. The tech who did my test told me that one of the other techs was looking over my films with her and asked if I had had breast reduction. LOL 

I guess losing 127 pounds does reduce the size of the breasts. I've gone from a 48DD to a 34LONG. hahahaha Thank goodness for good bras!

I have been meaning to create my profile for a long time now. I guess now is as good a time as any.

I went to the Southern Women's Show yesterday with my daughter and son-in-law. This has been a tradition with us for 4 years now and the highlight each year is the "fashion show" put on by the Nashville Firefighters. This year DD & DSIL talked me into having my picture made with the "boys" after the show. When they were told of the changes in my life during the past year, they chose my pose - across the knee of 3 of the guys on the front row!! OMG! Then, DD and I had another pic taken together with all of them. My favorite FF was not among them though. That would be my son-in-law. He says he will be one of the dancers next year. LOL

I am currently wearing a size 10, down from a size 26/28. The jeans I have on in the pic with the FF are a size 12.

I also went Thursday afternoon to have the porcelain match done for my permanent bridges. They will be done in about 2 weeks and then the transformation of my smile will be complete. One year and $7,000 worth of braces, bridges and Zoom! whitening later, I finally have a smile I am proud of! Thank you Dr. Harris and Dr. Gean at Castle Dental Clinic in Rivergate!!
