How everything can change with one word.

On July the 7th I went in for my yearly exam with my doctor. After the exam was over. the doctor started to tell me that she was going to do a breast exam on me. Something that I try to do once a month or once every other month. About half way the doctor looks at me and asks if I knew I had a lump on my left breast. I honestly did not know what to say to her.
From there it was a mad search trying to find out if I could get into to get a mammogram. Something I thought I would not have to endure until I was at least 40. But there I was the next day July the 8th. I was standing in front of the machine and then place in an ultrasound room from there and then back into another room where they then did a Biopsy of my left breast. After about two days of no sleep and worry. I got a call telling my that I had Infiltrating ductile cancer Grade 3.
All I could think was WOW!!!!
For that word caner could change my life so fast.
So Here I am at the beginning of my journey. Scared but optimistic. I feel calm that the outcome will be good. But scared out of my mind, like the guy in the scream painting.
I will trying to keep everyone posted.
