Being a busy busy Mom of 4 kids is hard. When those kids have multiple health issues, it’s even harder. And my kids always come first, which means their health needs also come first.
So I put off my own health. I didn’t take time for doctors appointments for myself. I only did the parts of my medical care that I had to.
Like most Mom’s, my own health came last until it was necessary for it to come first. And here I am currently overloaded with appointments for myself, for my children and for my husband as well. Every day, I’m adding in another appointment, most of them for me.
I have two procedures coming up with my OBGYN: a scope to check for the ongoing bleeding issues that I have had since 2016, and a hysterectomy.
Earlier in the month, I had a mammogram to check a lump my physician and I found in my right breast. The mammogram didn’t show anything where I originally thought the lump was at but it did show one further up in the tissue. I follow up with a General Surgeon this week to discuss the next steps.
Right now, I am just going day by day and allowing my physicians to help me decide the best care for my health. I’ve been very lucky to have great care thus far. All of the physicians have been truly wonderful and caring, answering my questions thoroughly and thoughtfully as we go.
I will update as we go but for now, this is where things are at.
Until next time…
