Test Day


Hello my friends, hope you all had a nice day. Well, today was my mammogram,stress test, and echo cardiogram. My day started off bright and early, well actually, it was dark, sprinkling rain, and very cold. Anyway, I had to be at the hospital at 7:00, my mammogram was at 7:15. Just what I always wanted, to have my day start off, with a compacting of my girls!! Now, I truly know how sardines feel when they get compacted into that little can. Let me hear a great big amen my friends! Then, me and my girls, headed over to the radiology department for my stress test. Poor lovebug hung out at the waiting room, such a fun time, not!! Due to my recent problems, I could not walk on the treadmill, so I had to have a chemical stress test. It was scary, I got very out of breath, and was really hurting in my chest. I was truly praising God when she said it was over. Now, comes the waiting for the results, but I will know by Friday. I will let you all know, as soon as I know. Take care, I love you all.

Oh AMEN, girlfriend! Have you ever seen the Anita Renfroe video about mammograms? HYSTERICAL!!!

I prayed for you today and all these tests. I'm praying they'll be able to find the right direction to take.

Love you my friend.

First off...AMEN! You poor thing! What a day! Thanks for keeping us in the loop. Praying for some answers...but good ones! Something that can be easily treated!

Lady of Value said...

Amen!! During my mammograms, they ALWAYS have to do one side over, because of blurred film!! GRRR! Praying the results are good.

Peggy said...

Oh yeah Denise! Amen...I hear ya' &
I laughed so hard at the cartoon followed by your humor.

I was praying for you but never thought about the fact that you'd need to do treadmill for the stress test(duh?)so sorry didn't cover that! I pray that the results will help you get what you need! Holding on with you!!! Take good care!

We call em "smash o' grams"
I hope you rest well tonight.
Warm blankets and a bit of Tylenol?

Lisa said...

I have been praying and I am looking forward to a good report and if anything is broke may the good Lord give the doctors wisdom to fix it.
I have always loved that mammo comic, I am a registered mammographer and until I had my first one I did not realize how bad it really hurt and how much I wanted to slap the tech for telling me to, "Hang in there". It really does smart but that compression can make or break an exam and if you are going to go through it at all it may as well hurt and be done right than to be done wrong and have a calcification missed- there I have given my educational tid bit today.

Bernadine said...

Funny cartoon, lol. So glad it's all over and I'm praying that all is well.

Wife of Rob said...

I will be praying for you and over the results of the tests. Remember Jeremiah 29:11-14.

And on another note...I just have four words for you....SET THE SISTERS FREE!!!!

Praying,
Jen

Jewel said...

LOL...love the cartoon, Denise! Whoa, do those things ever hurt!! Talk about compression! And I've had to have mine done twice a few times to make sure they get ALL of the girls in....double fun! Argh! I've been praying for you and will continue to, Denise. May you feel strengthened in your body and spirit is my prayer for you! ((HUGS))

Denise said...

I am believing for a good report girl.......Phl 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

We will put our Faith in the Father...... and waiting for a good report.!

Denise, go to bed! It's after midnight and you've already been by my place for today's post. After I read all you guys have been through today, I was even more shocked that you are still awake. Shut it down, Sister, shut it down! [of course the only way I know you still up at all hours of the night is because I am up all hours of the night. Uh oh! Sandman's at the door; I gotta take this call. Sleep well, dear one, we are all praying God's will is made more clear by the results of today's tests. Love ya!

Grammy said...

I pray they can do some thing to help you live a healthier life.

Beth (A Mom's Life) said...

Praying for you! Hope the girls are back to normal today. I guess there is one benefit to my small ones...not much to squish during the mammogram!

Michele Williams said...

I love the comic! Amen! My girls will get squashed in January. I've had the chemical stress test too... it is scarry. We will continue to keep you in our prayers and pray the doctors will find out what is going on and be able to fix the problem. Love you...

Sharon Brumfield said...

I hope your girls are feeling better today. :)
I loved the cartoon....they may not look like that but sometimes they sure feel like that.
I anticipate great things from test results!

Gretchen said...

Thank you for the update. Love that cartoon! Sorry for your "girls!" good to keep them healthy, though. Praying for good news and wisdom. xxooo

Devita said...

Amen! I pray for you sister.

Allison said...

I will be praying for your results to be good ones - or at least to give you some answers! I had to have a cyst removed from my left breast 2 years ago and that was amazingly painful, so, I understand!! I've also had that kind of stress test, and the regular one, and a "tilt table test" where they gave me something under my tongue to make me pass out which was so scary!! (((HUGS)) I certainly know what you are going through and Im here for you!!

Sandi said...

praying for your results. And good for you taking care of your "girls"

Willow said...

Bwahahaha, I LOVED that picture! I'm one of the lucky ones in that I have a mammo uncomfortable but not painful.

Love you SO MUCH and keeping you in my prayers.
