No News and Good News – a Quick Update on Lumpy and Leaky

Happy Monday, all!

No need for warnings or short versions of today’s post, as I don’t have much new to report on this ongoing possible cancer scenario. Lumpy is still a bit bruised and sore, but the mammogram place called mid-week and cancelled my followup appointment. The reason? My biopsy came back NORMAL! The lump is officially a fibroadenoma, and I just need to continue with yearly mammograms to keep tabs on it.

However, still no closer to find out why Leaky is leaking. I have a consult scheduled with a local oncologist an eternity from now in 3 weeks, but if I can’t get my MRI beforehand, it will just be a risk assessment. I was hoping to find out a scan date today, but no luck yet. And Leaky is my main concern, given I’ve had the that lump on my left side for over 20 years, and it’s not why I went to the ER ALMOST A MONTH AGO!

If anyone’s looking for me, tell them I’m here experimenting with more vodka and ice cream drink recipes calmly waiting for more news. *grin*

    I’m so glad lumpy is safe!!! Now to get clarification for leaky!

    • July 31, 2017 at 6:00 pm

      Thanks, lovely Ritu! ❤️

    Why do all the damn appointments have to be weeks out? Continued good juju for you and extra vodka and ice cream juju.

    • July 31, 2017 at 6:04 pm

      Yep, read about your lovely phone conversation with Chip – good times, eh? Thanks so much for the juju! ❤️

  3. July 31, 2017 at 5:46 pm

    Glad to hear Lumpy isn’t a problem. One down. One to go! You can do this! 🙂

    • July 31, 2017 at 6:10 pm

      Aww, thanks so much, Lisa! ❤️

    You need to make some Khalua pound cake to go with your vodka and ice cream. Holler if you want the recipe. Great news about Lumpy. Now we just have to wait for great news again. Come on, Leaky, step up!

    • July 31, 2017 at 6:19 pm

      Oooo, that recipe sounds wicked dangerous, Emily! Do you have it up on your blog somewhere? If not, you totally should (and not just so I can pin it, and drool over the picture). Yeah, Leaky is really getting jealous of the quick attention Lumpy got. I think she needs extra vodka!

  5. July 31, 2017 at 6:14 pm

    Great news..

  6. July 31, 2017 at 7:15 pm

    Lumpy was like a sulky teenager, attention seeking… leaky is probably Mum having a bawl, because you do when you have hormonal teenagers. Three weeks must feel like forever when it is you waiting. I can’t walk far at the moment as doing so with legs, feet, fingers and arms crossed (for luck) makes for unbalance… and the husband says I am already unbalanced enough. Xx

      *giggle* *giggle* *snort*

      Thanks, Ellen – I needed that laugh! 😀

  7. July 31, 2017 at 7:39 pm

    I’m hoping that Leaky is okay.
    Hugs and stuff.

    • July 31, 2017 at 9:25 pm

      Thanks so much, JW! *hugs*

    Most definitely sending you huge, mega-amounts of healing energy, Traci! I’m glad Lumpy is not a sinister sort. Thinking about you! Cher xo

    So pleased to hear that you got some GOOD news!!!! 🙂 (Sending you lots more hugs as you wait for the next installment, too!)

    • August 1, 2017 at 2:32 pm

      Awesomeness, thinky – thanks so much! My next appointment with with the other person you really like, and I already had an awesome conversation with the nurse… facilitator? Okay, I can’t remember her title, but I have a good feeling about them. 😀

    Great news, Traci! Here’s to more positive news about Leaky 🙂

  11. August 1, 2017 at 7:58 am

    I’m so glad lumpy is benign and a minor inconvenience at this point. Will be thinking of you as you await more info on Leaky. How is Limpy doing?

    • August 1, 2017 at 12:06 pm

      Thanks so much, Molly! Limpy is doing pretty good at the moment – while I can’t say this was a “good fracture” (seems almost oxymoronic), it definitely wasn’t as bad as it could have been, and he’s healing nicely. Thanks again! 😀

  12. August 1, 2017 at 9:07 am

    Delighted to hear it! Keeping the positives up for you x

    • August 1, 2017 at 2:33 pm

      Thanks so much, FPG! 😀

  13. August 1, 2017 at 11:53 am

    Congratulations on a positive prognosis!

    • August 1, 2017 at 2:36 pm

      Thank you, Terri! Hopefully I’ll have a matched set in the near-ish future!

  14. August 1, 2017 at 12:24 pm

    I’m so glad lumpy is all right, and am sending good wishes that leaky will be the same 🙂 x

    • August 1, 2017 at 2:40 pm

      Much appreciated, Helen! 😀

  15. August 1, 2017 at 2:45 pm

    At least some good news and you haven’t lost your sense of humor through all this. Best wishes for further good news.

    • August 1, 2017 at 3:15 pm

      Thanks, GC! I’m doing everything I can to hang on to my sense of humor – especially since it’s the only sense I have! 😛

  16. August 1, 2017 at 5:36 pm

    So I hope that you get equally good news with Leaky. What a relief about Lumpy.

  17. August 1, 2017 at 6:21 pm

    Three weeks is a long time to wait.Over here such a wait would usually mean that the medics were concerned, but not desperately worried. I don’t know what it might mean in your neck of the woods. Hooray about the good news and we’ll keep hoping that it will be good news from Leaky as well.

    • August 1, 2017 at 11:16 pm

      Thanks, April. I actually got a bit of news earlier today, and I now have an MRI scheduled for the10th. Hopefully more good news soon.

  18. August 2, 2017 at 10:51 am

    I am glad that Lumpy is ok, But I wish they would get a move on to figure out what is up with Leaky for you!

    • August 2, 2017 at 10:59 am

      Thanks, Judy. I actually got some news yesterday (I was hoping to get it in time for Monday’s update, but no such luck). My MRI is now happening in a couple of weeks. Fingers crossed the mystery is solved soon!

      • August 2, 2017 at 2:40 pm

        I am so pleased that you finally got a date through for your MRI. I’m also keeping my fingers crossed it will all be ok for you Traci.

  19. August 4, 2017 at 12:07 pm

    Absolutely brilliant to hear the biopsy was negative 🙂 That must certainly be a relief so no doubt all anxiety is now tossed on the other boob and back to that waiting game for the MRI scan. At least you have the date now, but the intervening time allows so much pondering. I trust you will try not to overdo that Traci xx

    • August 4, 2017 at 2:38 pm

      Me? Perseverate over the preponderance of possible… *ahem* I mean, yes – I plan to behave myself in the interim, kind sir.

      • August 4, 2017 at 3:03 pm

        Most good to hear, and stay away from Google too. A terrible beast that is for those with ailments as we have discussed before! The odd nervous anxiety is permitted, but nothing too untoward or I shall tell you off

  20. August 4, 2017 at 1:56 pm

    I am SO ecstatically pleased to hear that Lumpy is not a problem. That is a huge relief. Now we just need to get leaky sorted out. Fingers crossed you get appointments sorted ASAP! Xxxxxxx

    • August 4, 2017 at 2:40 pm

      Thanks, Hayley! At the moment, it looks like I might possibly have more news late in the day on the 14th – your finger crossing must be doing the trick!

      • August 4, 2017 at 2:48 pm

        Excellent. Am still sending you all the best from the sunny UK

  21. August 5, 2017 at 9:32 pm

    I’m so happy for you the Lumpy is nothing to worry about! Hopefully you will get more good news about Leaky! I love that first gif, btw

    • August 6, 2017 at 1:39 pm
