i was a mess when i got there, so the nurse explained the sono to me. remember how no one had really explained anything to me, right? she showed me the image, which looked like a mike n' ike candy, kind of cylindrical and oblong. it's about 1/2" long. she said it didn't scream "cancer" to her but she couldn't guarrantee anything. she also said nothing showed up on the mammo. dr. came in and said he just couldn't rule out cancer so they needed to check the suspicious tissue.
i got different breast feeding advice from the people there, my ob/gyn, the pediatrician, and the lac. consultant. the nurse told me not to nurse on the right for 24 hrs and just to pump a bit to relieve pressure.
I'm glad it went ok and that it's over! The reason I would favor pump and dump is that if they used lidocaine in your breast today (the numbing medicine), it's not something you'd want your baby to ingest. I worked in a pediatric ER and remember a case where a mom was putting lidocaine on her baby's gums for teething pain. Let's just say it didn't end well. I would just be conservative about it if there's any question and wait until tomorrow to feed on that side (although it may be more sore tomorrow!). I'm sure the amount they used was very small but still. I hope the rest of the week goes fast for you. I'm keeping my fingers crossed but it sounds very hopeful!

Glad it is behind. you. It does seem like waiting for results is worse than the procedure itself.

I agree though with Linda that it does sound hopeful.

It sounds like the radiologist was very thorough.

Prayers for you.

Re: eating black eyed peas on New Year's Day tradition, y'all:


History of the Black Eyed Pea Tradition


"The Real Story is much more interesting and has gone untold in fear that feelings would be hurt. Itís a story of war, the most brutal and bloody war, military might and power pushed upon civilians, women, children and elderly. Never seen as a war crime, this was the policy of the greatest nation on earth trying to maintain that status at all costs. An unhealed wound remains in the hearts of some people of the southern states even today; on the other hand, the policy of slavery has been an open wound that has also been slow to heal but is okay to talk about.

The story of THE BLACK EYED PEA being considered good luck relates directly back to Sherman's Bloody March to the Sea in late 1864. It was called The Savannah Campaign and was lead by Major General William T. Sherman. The Civil War campaign began on 11/15/64 when Sherman 's troops marched from the captured city of Atlanta, Georgia, and ended at the port of Savannah on 12/22/1864.

When the smoke cleared, the southerners who had survived the onslaught came out of hiding. They found that the blue belly aggressors that had looted and stolen everything of value and everything you could eat including all livestock, death and destruction were everywhere. While in hiding, few had enough to eat, and starvation was now upon the survivors.

There was no international aid, no Red Cross meal trucks. The Northern army had taken everything they could carry and eaten everything they could eat. But they couldnít take it all. The devastated people of the south found for some unknown reason that Sherman ís bloodthirsty troops had left silos full of black eyed peas.

At the time in the north, the lowly black eyed pea was only used to feed stock. The northern troops saw it as the thing of least value. Taking grain for their horses and livestock and other crops to feed themselves, they just couldnít take everything. So they left the black eyed peas in great quantities assuming it would be of no use to the survivors, since all the livestock it could feed had either been taken or eaten.

Southerners awoke to face a new year in this devastation and were facing massive starvation if not for the good luck of having the black eyed peas to eat. From New Years Day 1866 forward, the tradition grew to eat black eyed peas on New Yearís Day for good luck."

-- Pass the peas,Please!

Have a happy New Year and eat lots of black eyes....

We always have lucky black eyed peas on 1/1. My mom used to boil coins to add before serving. You got to keep what you found. I prefer to serve hoppin John. I wonder what the reason behind cabbage is?

No call from the doc yet. Waiting is killing me.

We don't have our house on the market yet. Still need to finish some projects. It might be a while.

So nobody has kept close watch on this small growth in her v. (Don't think the dis will let me spell that out.) Around Thanksgiving Mom noticed it had grown and was painful. She describes it as "pulling ". But she didn't want to ruin the holidays so she told nobody.
My SIL has a cousin that is a surgeon. He is getting us an meeting with his good friend, an obgyn. Please pray that it is an easy fix. I'm more nervous about this than I was about my cancer.-
Sorry, Merry, I completely missed your post about what your mom and your family is going through. I did a double take when I saw your last post, so I went back and checked. I am sorry I missed the boat.

Hope you get some info soon. Has she been examined yet?

Glad your mom has such a supportive family. Please keep us posted.

Good afternoon ladies

paintnolish - glad the biopsy is behind you and hope you are not too uncomfortable today. It does sound optimistic, so that is good.

Melissa - prayers for your mom

Laurie - so what do black eyed peas taste like. I think they did have them in Texas when we lived there but I never partook.

Linda - hope you are feeling better. Have you had any snow? None for us, yeah!

Anne - continued prayers for Avery. Glad he is home. Hoping the treatments go well on Friday.

Lisa - will be thinking of you on Friday

Well ds20 is back from jury duty. He got excused for 2 years as a student. So he is happy. It would be terrible. They said its 6 months every tuesday and thursday, sometimes they will call you and sometimes not. I told him that will also be bad as he will graduate then and will be looking for a job. They said if you are a student you are excused. He said he would maybe try some online courses then etc.

Oh and based on his transcripts he is sending to the possible nursing schools his gpa is 3.7, so I hope that is good enough for one of them for sure.

I told dh again how I feel about the trip, the earthquake they had there etc. I said cant you go some place closer etc. He now sees the ds are less then enthused about the trip. Maybe location. He asked them to plan things and they both just sat on the couch. I told him I would be happy with somewhere in the US. Maybe San Diego? Some place warm. Arizona?

I AM FINE!!!

My test site has been leaking/oozing, so I called the dr. to ask. The nurse said they hadn't received my results and it could take over a week if they had to send them out, but she would ask the dr. about the leaking test site. About a half hour later, the dr. called, which scared the crap out of me! She said sh had gotten the results and it was a back up of milk. She went onto explain what it was actually called (might have said lactating adenoma), but I was so busy being relieved that I didn't get the technical name. She said blood tinged milk was leaking out of the wound.

Anyway, ladies, thank you so much for the advice and virtual hand-holding. I know people complain about the CB, but there are PLENTY of wonderful people on here. I will say a prayer for all of you! Please let me know if there is anything I can ever do for you!

Mary Ann, did your DH get over his cold? Isn't he leaving for China tomorrow? I hope he has a safe trip.

DD16 was home sick yesterday and today with a bad cold. Not a good idea to miss too much in high school.

I'm so happy to see such wonderful news! That made my day. We are all so happy for you.

My mom doesn't see the new doc until next Wednesday. I'm trying not to bleed until shot but it's difficult.

Ran a bunch of errands today. Trying to get everything in order just in case I need to be going to additional appointments in the coming days or weeks. Just thinking ahead....not bleeding.
