    Thank-you @June1952 and @Ahnn <3 . It means so much to read your messages tonight. Tomorrow is a step closer to at least finding out what this is. 

    My breast surgeon took time on the weekend to email me after examining the images and also give me an opportunity to ask any questions. I feel in very good hands. She called it an indeterminate lesion and reassuringly said it was tiny. So I’ll hang onto the positives - it’s tiny and not obviously cancer in appearance - and just keep my fingers crossed.

    Fight or flight response? Really going back and forth with this this morning. For the first time since being told I would need a biopsy I have had tears. Mostly because a couple of friends have sent me lovely messages. It is their kindness that gets the emotions going. There is a very real feeling of just wanting to run away to somewhere pleasant and pretend that all is good.

    But I know that we need to know what this is so informed decisions can be made. Unfortunately my biopsy is not until 3 this afternoon and then of course there will be the waiting for results. There are both advantages and disadvantages to knowing more this time. I know what to expect as far as the procedures and waiting times are concerned but I also know way more about breast cancer. It is hard to stop the mind from getting ahead.

    So I have downloaded a really good book and hope to distract myself with that today in between getting super organized for what I have to do for the next few days as I know my mind will not be good at concentrating for too long! Oh, and concentrating on breathing really does help when the emotions threaten to take over.  :|

    It’s so awful waiting. Sending a big hug. It’s two weeks since I sat through the waiting for PET/ CT results and it was hideous. This seems never ending and I am feeling for you. Hope your book is so engrossing it gets you through the day xx

    Good to hear that that part is done, and went ok.
    So tell me, what constitutes a good book for , in this situation? For me, it would have to be something fairly fast paced, but that you don't have to think too deeply about

    Biopsies done. Did not hurt at all this time. But massive bruise again. Hopefully results will be through by Wednesday afternoon but it usually takes longer than they say. Staff at Radiology were so lovely again today. That helps a lot. Thank-you for all your support.  <3

    Morning, So glad that is done, and sending hugs for a positive outcome tomorrow. x
