“Wake-up Call”


We get these wake up calls that throw us for a loop once in a while. I’ve had this terrible sinus infection for weeks. I haven’t been sleeping good either, lots of coughing and chest pain as well as congestion. I’m on my second round of antibiotics, and my doctor sent me for all kinds of test. The good news is that everything checked is in proper working condition. Yeah!😆 

However, I just happen to have my yearly mammogram scheduled at the same time. While I’m sitting last night relieved to know all my other test came back normal. I get a call from the breast center that they see something, and they   want me to come in right away for more mamo pictures and an sonogram So I went in today, they see two tiny spots, but want to wait 6 months to have another sonogram done. Now my youngest sister was just diagnosed with breast cancer. She goes in for surgery next week. So as hard as I work at keeping a positive mind, it was hard to fight how close this comes to home for me, plus my Mom died from breast cancer.  

Driving home I can’t help but feel like I’ve been giving another wake up call that makes me re-evaluate my life. I’m feeling grateful that it wasn’t as serious as it could have been. While the thought of those tiny spots still being there sits deep in the back of my mind. I will not let it rob me of the next 6 months worrying about what hasn’t happened yet and may never happen. I have too much to do and I’m grateful for the things that continue to make me feel alive. 🙏
