Oh, dear, a mass.  Ugh.  I had a needle biopsy yesterday for some itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny little spots the doctor called "calcifications."  I should find out the results on Friday, if not sooner.  I thought there might be some pain involved with the big needle, but it didn't hurt at all.  The worst part was that they did it on the same mammogram machine, so I still had to get boob-squeezed several more times while they took before, during, and after images.  As far as the results, I have just not let myself even think about it too much.  I have too much to do!  I hope we will BOTH have good results.  Love you!  

Hmm, I had my mammogram after both parts of my vaccine.  Evidently the doctor was aware of it and was not that concerned.  I think right now opinions are divided.  I googled to find out the rationale behind it, and some experts think there is a chance of having swollen lymph nodes post-vaccine (and somehow that is supposed to affect the results or whatever), while others say you should not delay having your scheduled mammogram.  So, like they say "Half of one and six dozen of the other."  haha

That is *gorgeous*!  There are quite a few interesting Iayouts that can be done with the Drunkards Path block and yours, with that color palette, certainly is one of them.

Vi your quilt is really nice.

Thanks for all your hard work!

i’ve had another setback. I went for my routine mammo last week, they found an mass area, so today was the ultrasound guided punch biopsies. Yep OUCHIE!  
I should hear in 5-7 business days either way. I sure could use some extra prayer ladies. ;0(

Ugh! I'm praying for you!!!

Thank you .  That is a complement coming from you.

Ok, ya'll, I'll ask for prayers as well. Finally, my mortgage refi seems to be getting close to the end. This will move me from a 6%, 30 year mortgage (I'd be supposedly 73 when complete) to a 2.5%, 15 year mortgage (I'll b approx 60) with approximately the same payment. I can still pay more and get it done faster, which is my goal, but anyway, this will help me a ton! He asked for the last 30 days' pay stubs, which seems to tell me I"m getting closer! :D :D

Oh my, I’m glad yours didn’t hurt!  
I’ll be praying for good results for us both!

I sure do hate the squeezie machine, I mean really. Lol     love you too

Wow! In half the time for the same payment. 
that’s amazing. Good luck for a speedy closing.
