    I’m happy to hear your good news!
    The last few mammograms I’ve had, I’ve been called back each time. It’s always been “normal” after further tests, but it’s still frightening each time.

    It’s really an awful experience, having reason to suspect you might be facing Something, but hoping with all your heart that it’s really Nothing.

    I’m glad to hear there was Nothing there.

    I’m glad you “dodged that bullet”! That family history thing is always “there” and lurking. I feel for you with the sleepless night. So glad they could get you in the next day. I’ve been there too–”come in for additional views” then “need a biopsy” then wait for results. It’s ok. Same thing next year. This time I’m going to the surgeon and having the “thing” taken out! Wish me luck! You’re right about one illness being enough, but we all know, that’s not the way life dishes it out.

    I’m happy that it was nothing for you! My mom went through radical mastectomy, and is still with us today. We need you in our diabetes lives! Thank you for the work you do to inform us every day!

    What a big relief! Doesn’t the air smell a bit sweeter? You are loved! Thanks for sharing your life – good and bad. As so many others have expressed – I’m so glad to know it was just a scare!

    It’s a very scary experience indeed. But we should all remember that every year the diagnosis of cancer is confirmed for over 1 1/4 million Americans. Many of them are diagnosed with rare cancers, hard to treat and with a situation very different from what Diabetes patients live.

    When you only have a handful or two of true specialists in the whole country who know how to treat a rare and deadly condition, the need to be an engaged and informed patient, communicating at every step with a core group of peers is simply clear, since this is often what differentiates if you’ll live or die, because of suboptimal diagnosis and care.

    Amy, I’m delighted you don’t have to deal with cancer!

    I thought the disease was not cancer because I got this from a diabetes alert that I received. But anyway, I’m glad you’re well and not have breast cancer. This is great specially of the family history that you have. Keep taking good care of yourself and keep having that mammogram once a year.

    I completely understand how scary this is. As someone who always thought, it won’t happen to me, I’ve learned that it can and it does. And so have you. You’ve dodged yet another bullet. Hurray!

    I’m so glad all is okay. I’ve had the “come back for additional screening” too. It’s scary. I was 34 at the time, and the waiting room was full of survivors/women in their 60′s. No one said anything, but you could almost hear them thinking “what is she doing here, she’s so young–how sad, etc.” Thankfully, all was okay.

    Hooray, Amy! Very glad you’re OK and you don’t have to go through the world class hassle of breast cancer treatment.
