"It's not a toomah!" - trinalin thinks things through — LiveJournal
"It's not a toomah!"
I tweeted this earlier in the week, but just hadn't gotten around to sending word along via LJ until now.

After nodules were discovered in my breasts, I had the consultation with the surgeon who later recommended two biopsies - an ultrasound guided biopsy on my right "axillary" area near my arm pit and a stereo biopsy (or somesuch) on my right breast. That took place the Friday of Spring Break.

Mum was great - she took me to the breast center and waited for the procedure to end. Then she took me home. Yay mom! (I treated the folks to brunch and lupper that day in my gratitude.)

I received the call on Tuesday that both biopsies were benign. Took me a second to register that was good news because in my family, we like to pronounce it "b'niggen." Heh. Turns out I'm just lumpy like my grandfather was!

So I am quite relieved. I know you're not supposed to worry until you know for sure (and even then, what's the point of worrying), but that doesn't stop you from doing so! Here's hoping I stay b'niggen for years to come!

Yay! I'm so glad everything is fine! I was wondering if you had heard anything but you hadn't posted. Sorry, I don't do twitter. FB and LJ and G+ are enough time wasters for me. :) And I understand about the worrying. You can't stop all of the scenarios that run thru your head.

Here's to b'niggen! Have a naked Sherlock to celebrate!

This is so great! I don't want anyone to have to do what I did last year!

Glad to hear they're benign, Trina! Scary stuff indeed to go through. *hugs* to you!

*ginormous sigh of relief* Congrats on the b'niggeness, & hopes for nothing but sustained b'niggeness forever. Lumpy is fine, but we need our Treen free of cancer-type-lumpies ALWAYS. ♥

(I know what you mean about the family pronunciations. As a child, I once pronounced "picturesque" as "picturesqueek"--yeah, I was miserable at phonics--& lo, it was pronounced that way thereafter. Ditto the time that as a drunken teen, I said "nigelgay" for "negligee." I still want to say "nigelgay" instead!)
