About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Mammograms and Mucinex

   I had my very first mammogram today.  It was a piece of cake, ladies.  I was a bit worried about the procedure and it was painless and pleasant!  So, if you have never had one, don't let people scare you.  For your peace of mind- and your health- go get one.  You will be proud of yourself.:)

   2 rounds of antibiotics.  A strong does of steroids.  3 inhalers.  Advair.  A chest x-ray.  Now this...
   It was just waiting on the shelf at Target.  I believe we have a winner!  I LOVE this stuff.  God willing, I am on the path to good health again.  Thanks again so much for your prayers, dear friends...

Glad you got your mammogram behind you! I've been having them since I was 35 because of my mom's breast cancer diagnosis. They are nothing to fear. Glad to hear that the Mucinex is working...I've heard that's good stuff.

Hope you continue to feel better Lori. Finally right! My Dad has a really bad case of bronchitis right now, almost pneumonia. Really bad stuff this year!

I had my first one last year also...I was scared but then afterwards it was just what you said...a piece of cake.

Hope you get to feeling better! I love the Mucinex for kids...Lexi will take this with no problems. So if the kids ever need it that work great also.

I have always dreaded the day when I would have to get one - but I guess not all mammogram experiences are scary!

I am excited that you are playing along in the swap! I will announce the partners tomorrow evening.

Don't you just love that it comes in a pill? I had to take yucky old robitussin when I was pregnant with Sam. I had double pneumonia. Now the smell of robitussin just makes me gag :) I definately like taking the pills MUCH better! Good for you getting a mammogram!! I'm glad to hear it wasn't that bad. Hope you continue to feel better every day!! Love, Jerelene

Hi Lori,
Good that the Mucinex is working for you. My Aunt works for a pharmacy and they told her that was good stuff.

We must be sisters because I was just talking to mom about getting one, she just got her mammogram and so did you... I haven't had one since my lumpectomy 8 years ago... Guess it's time to get in there and get it done... Good for you for taking care of yourself!

I'll write more later in an e mail!

I'm with you on the mammogram thing. I was so scared when I got my first one thinking it was going to be intolerable. Like you said it was a piece of cake.

Amy said...

You have to be the first person I ever heard say that a mammogram was a piece of cake! You go! Hope that mucinex knocks that cold right out!

Olenka said...
