no more needles!
Yesterday I had a core needle biopsy on the cyst in my right breast. It still aches, and will be difficult to ice during rehearsal. Pressure helps too, but if I sit here all day cupping my right boob I think folks may wonder.

This morning I was at the dentist to have root plaining(sp?) done on the right side - they numb up your mouth so that they can scrape at your teeth below the gum line.

Next week I have a blood draw to check my thyroid levels, and the other half of the root scraping on the left side.

After that I would like to be done with needles for at least month. Please? I'll be extra good, I swear.

So today's rehearsal is going to be about not drooling on myself or touching myself too often. Oh yeah, I'm focused.

Thanks - it's just an icky way to start. I full expect the biopsy to be benign, but always better to know than not.

Oh you poor thing! I'm sorry to hear about all those jabs in one week, that's awful!

Yeah, way too many needles. Now that the numbing is wearing out of my mouth I can drink without dribbling which is a positive, but I need to get some ibuprofen. I'm not quite sure how this decided to all pile up into just over a week but blech.

Blech. You doing okay? Sounds like you're handling all of this nonsense well, and it's good to get things checked out, but that's a lot for a week.

I'm doing all right, having rehearsal (even this clusterfuck of a show) to distract me is helpful.

A lot of things just piled all into this week all of a sudden.

My boyfriend last night was joking that I am seeing enough doctors for both of us, so he doesn't need to go anytime soon (despite the fact that he hasn't a physical in nearly a decade). It does seem like I am doing enough drs for several folks.


I am working on a cool holiday gift for you, and if I get it done soon I will give it to you early, because you totally deserve it.

Sounds dreadful! I hope you will get results soon that the biopsy shows nothing wrong! I'm sorry you're going through this:(

The results should be in on Thursday or Friday. Thanks for the good thoughts, I can use all of those I can get lately.

Is it totally weird that my first thought was, "I don't mind sitting next to you in rehearsal to hold onto your right boob so you can get some work done."

Yes. It is totally weird.

Hope you're doing okay, chica.

Very weird, but there are points this week where it would have been welcome. I'm okay, but this show is kicking my ass.
