The Phone Call (Something Questionable)

Last week I got a phone call at work. It was Friday. I checked my schedule, discussed it with my boss, and went on about my business.
Over the weekend I mentioned it to my Sweet Husband and told him it was not a worry.
Tuesday night I had a little trouble sleeping.
Wednesday night was a little worse. 
Friday night I did not sleep at all.
Friday morning I went in to work, filed a report and went to my appointment. 
Let me back up a little bit here. A couple of weeks ago, I went in for my annual Mammogram. The phone call was asking me to come back for more pictures as "Something Questionable" showed up on the first set. "Something Questionable" was the phrase running through my mind repeatable all week. When I first got the phone call, the logical part of my brain was still in charge (I am a nurse after all) but the logical part of the brain is not always the loudest. I know that the odds are in my favor. I have been invited back for retakes before, but usually they check before you leave and retake them the same day so you don't have time to stew about it. "Something Questionable" made for a very long week.
The retake was quick, professional, a little uncomfortable, and just fine. 
In other words, I am fine.
Next year I will go back and do it again.
So if you are a woman over 40, get checked every 1 or 2 years (depending on your Primary Care Practitioner's recommendation). If you love a woman over 40, encourage her to get checked, and if you hear the phrase "Something Questionable", think of me, smile, go back when they ask you too, and DON'T WORRY. 

This is me at about 15, on my cousins trampoline.
