Welcome to 2013!

So what New Year resolutions did you make this year?  I am sure the gyms are quite busy with those who made the resolution to exercise more!  Well, the gyms will be busy for a while and hopefully you will keep your resolutions because you know some of them are good for you!

I hope one of your resolutions is being proactive about your health and make sure you make taking care of your health a top priority.

Visiting your doctor and taking care of yourself is one of the best gifts you can do for yourself!  We only have one life; this is not a dress rehearsal so it is up to you to take care of yourself!

Making sure I get my mammogram and a visit to the Risk and Prevention Clinic at Dana-Farber is a part of my regiment.  I know when I am sitting waiting for my mammogram, I will usually have to be called back for them to take more images, but that is for my benefit and I don’t mind it!

In the past, I have had biopsies, core biopsies, aspirations, and now in addition I have a marker that was inserted where they aspirated a cyst.

Last December when I got the good news that my mammogram was fine and they will see me in a year, I got the news in the room named for my mother!  Coincidence?  I think not!
