The results are in....Right this way....into room B

My results finally arrived and the the letter said I was Breast Cancer Free.

Let me just give you a glance at a moment in my morning.
Typically I wake up just in time to drive children to school. I roll out of bed, blindly head to the coffee maker and pour myself a cup. I search for the keys and my purse. I have every intention (in my mind) if heading back to bed when I return. But 9 times out of 10 I am wide awake upon return.

Now on the day of my mammogram, I seemed to have rocked everyones morning. I woke up, stumbled down the stairs to get a cup of coffee, all the while wondering, "Can I drink coffee?" Of course I can, but I was half asleep, and hospital/tests made me think twice.

The minute I walked into the kitchen the looks could have stopped traffic.

My eldest was making eggs, my daughter was making a PB&J, my youngest was in the living room reading.
It was almost in unison...."Where are you going?" "Why are you so dressed up?"

(jogging suit & combed hair)

"I am going to get a mammogram!" I said.

They asked, "What's a mammogram?"

I answer with, " It's when I have to stick my boobies between these two plastic plates and then the nurse squishes them down and takes a picture!"

You could have heard a pin drop!

Then my eldest said in his ever so monotone voice, "Thanks...I really needed to hear that this morning!"

REMINDER! My youngest has been in the living room reading this entire time!!

So the day goes on.....I have my test....and then I go home....& take a nap!!!

When I pick up my youngest after school, it goes a little bit like this........

Hi Mommy, I threw a touchdown pass today on the playground oh and you know what tristan said today he said that maybe we could hangout on thursday oh my gosh mommy lunch was soo good today I only have reading and math facts to do for homework OH....So....Do you have breast cancer?

You could have heard a pin drop!

Who even knew he was listening.

...and if I may add....the only one of the 4 kids who even asked. I, of course told him that I did not know yet but that I hoped I did not and he replied with, "Me either mommy"

The day I found out I was breast cancer free, I let him read the letter and he said, " Good to know"

(He seemed so relieved)

The rest of the kids,,,,,did not ask. So when I said to them that the letter came, and didn't they want to know?

They said....."well if it was would have told us!"

Yea! So glad you're healthy and all is well!

And, yes, it's always the quiet ones that surprise you the most. I guess that's why they're quiet - so they know what's going on.
