I'm sending this to pretty much everyone who knows me...

For those not reading about this on my blog, my midwife found a lump in my breast last week. She thinks it's probably a fibroadenoma (i.e. hormonal and not worrisome), but it's in the same spot on the same breast where my mother found her first malignant lump. She was only 4 years older then than I am now, and she was dead 7 years later from metastatic cancer.

SOOOO, I am trying not to worry about all of this but only kind of succeeding. I am going in on this Monday morning at 9 am EST for an ultrasound, and possibly a mammogram if they feel my breasts are amenable to that (I'm still lactating, but REALLY minimally).

Please, at any time between now and then, at home or at your place of worship or anywhere or any way you choose, please send prayers and vibes and wishes that I get definitive word that this lump is totally harmless. Thanks.
