My arm...

Ok, so this post is purely to satiate the commenters of the previous post...and to update those of you who already knew what what going on.
On Monday afternoon I had a small outpatient procedure to remove a lump from my left breast. Yes, everything is fine. The results came back from pathology and it was benign. The only problem is that it was on the very outer edge close to my armpit, so every time I move my left arm too much it pulls on my stitches. Today I decided that it had been long enough that I could finally wear a bra again. Big mistake. Half way through the day I was hurting so much that I changed shirts so I wouldn't have to wear a bra. When I looked in the mirror, I found the whole left half of my breast is now an ugly bruise. Not like anyone is going to see it, but still, it's ugly. So now I hurt all over again. I am still icing it and taking ibuprofen. I see my doctor on Tuesday for a follow-up. So there you go; that's what happened to my arm.

Holy cow!! That's quite a bit to be going through and I'm SO glad to hear it's benign!

Tell Matt he owes you some serious spoiling and I hope you feel better soon.

Glad to hear that it's benign. Hope it heals quickly. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

When you're better we'd love to get together again and have a game night.
