I have WHAT on my nipple?

The doc thinks I have a Yeast infection. On my nipple! And I have to put Monistat on it for two weeks. I am PRAYING that he is right. He still wants me to have a mammogram, which is Monday. I won't get the results til the 11th, but dear lord baby jesus I hope it's not cancer. On the other hand, I am thinking of suing, if it does turn out to be a y.i. The procedure my doc did was SO simple, and would have taken my previous doc all of 5 minutes to do when I saw her back in August. It could have saved me months of worry, pain, and maybe even damage done to my skin and breast tissue. I will post an update after my next appointment. Thanks for the well wishes ladies!

Doctor on Wednesday!

If you are reading this, I have invited you to read my blog, which is now private. I have decided to start blogging about my *possible* breast cancer,and the treatment to follow. Right now I am just waiting to go back to the doc on Wednesday for a second opinion. I went over the summer/early fall last year, and was basically given the run around by some 20-something twit who insisted it was just dry skin. Let me tell you this, dry skin does not stick around for a year. All my research points to Paget's Disease, a rare type of breast cancer which causes the skin on the nipple dry up and itch like mad. Those are my symptoms, and I can't think of anything else it could be. I read that treatment is simple, and fatality is RARE. I shouldn't have to have any chemo or anything. At most there will be surgery to remove whatever lump they may find, and hopefully I will be good as new. Ash and my mom are both coming with me on Wednesday, and my boss is aware and totally supportive of whatever I need to do. I am trying to keep this quiet until I know more, so please no mention of this on GP. I will keep you all posted, and thank you all for your well wishes. Love, Adrienne

Waaay overdue for an update

But....not much new! Christmas was ok. My family somehow managed to invite themselves over at the last minute, but we split the cooking duties, so it ended up alright. We had to postpone the big Honeymoon trip til Valentine's Day. I barely got any hours at work over the holidays, and there was just no way we could afford it right now. I am however, determined to not become one of those couples who puts it off, and puts it off, and before you know it, it has been 20 years and no honeymoon. We deserve this trip, and it WILL happen.
New Year's/Hubby's Bday was fun. We were very low key, babysitting until around 11, then coming home for champagne at midnight. We spent a lot of time over the holiday "break"(I use that term loosely, cause I still worked pretty much every day, lol) just hanging out, cuddling and being cheesy married people. I know we're still definitely in the "newlywed" category, but it's really starting to soak in now that we're married. It's been 7 months, and it's starting to feel more real. And, I love it.
On the weight loss front....yeah...I was sick for so long, that I skipped out on the gym for what, two weeks? Luckily, I've still held steady at my weight, and I don't feel like I've lost any muscle mass or strength. Now that I am back to 100%, I plan on hitting the gym tomorrow. I think I am going to aim for 3 nights a week, now that I am working the earlier shift at work. I also get my health benefits soon, and I read that I will get a discount at Weight Watchers. I always told myself I would never do anything like that, but never say never I guess. We will see, it certainly couldn't hurt.
