Lumpy twins

Buddy in the waiting room at the vets. Scared to death.

Buddy in the waiting room at the vets. Scared to death.

My dog and I have matching lumps.

I ended up having 2 days off this week out of the blue. I have a bunch of appointments I’d been putting off, like the dog’s yearly check up at the vet, my mammogram, and other stuff. So I booked them all over these 2 days.

When I took Buddy for his yearly checkup earlier this week,  I had the vet examine a pretty large lump under his right arm. It’s concerning because I notice he limps a little once in awhile and yelps a little when he jumps out of the back of the car. She said it’s either arthritis or it could be from the lump. And she took a biopsy of it.

And at the mammogram I could just tell something was wrong. I always have to get a sonogram after the mammogram because I have what they call dense breasts. The technician kept going over and over this one area on my right boob. When she was done she said not to get dressed. Then she came back and said get dressed, the doctor has to speak to you.


While I was sitting there I tried to stay present and just breathe. So he came in and told me I have a shadow, or a lump or whatever and I have to get a biopsy. I was nervous but not out of my mind.

I’m really ok with it. I am just not looking forward to the procedure- a needle going into my breast. Not a fan of pain you know? And my boobs are really sensitive.

Oh well. Buddy had his biopsy and he braved it well. Such a good boy.

So me and my dog have matching lumps.  Good times…

Such is the stuff of life I guess.

This is Buddy in the waiting room at the vet’s office. Isn’t he cute?

I wish you peace,

Jill G.

    Hi Jill, I said a prayer for you and let us know how you do. I have had many scares with my health. Anxiety does not help it but we have learned tools, such a breathing to help us through. I have a tough situation going on now so with faith and redirecting my thoughts-it helps. I always enjoy your posts! God bless you! Kathy

      Hi Kathy,

      Thank you for the prayer. I said one back for you too. I’m sorry you are going through a tough situation, but it sounds like you are doing it right. God bless you too! xxx

  4. Praying that it’s nothing for both of you! I’m a two time Breast Cancer Survivor-even if it turns out to be something…just know there are MILLIONS of us survivors!!! Hope I didn’t scare you (yeah right-we both know I did a little bit because I suffer from panic too) but I just wanted you to know that just because it is something doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. There are so many treatments these days! The Lord made me a walking miracle after my second bout with BC. Tons of prayers and positive attitude are what go me through (an amazing family as well as spectacular Dr.’s!!!). You’re gunna be fine 🙂

    Hi there,
    Congratulations on your survival and triumph over breast cancer. To be honest, I am not allowing myself to think of that at this stage. But it is good to know that I’m not alone. Thank you so much.
