There are few things more disconcerting...

...than getting a call from your wife saying the doctor's office wants her to come back in Monday so they can redo her mammogram because there was an area they couldn't make a definite determination about.

It could be nothing, and odds are, it's not.

But that knowledge doesn't seem to stop a person's heart from pounding on the inside of his chest like a jackhammer.

Probably nothing, here's hoping that everything turns out fine.

(((Hugs))) and prayers for Miss Reba. Nothing like having to wait through the weekend.

May Almighty God grant that all is well with your Miss Reba. We've faced a similar situation in our household and it (thankfully) was a "false alarm." I hope and pray you folks will be able to say the same.

Thank you all very much. I really do appreciate the concern, and as I said, the probability is quite high that there's nothing to this other than a bad set of pictures. But nonetheless, please do continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

We do indeed think of you, and wish for all to be well.

And I'd have words with the Doc afterwards if it turns out somebody spilled Ranch Dressing on the mammary torture device just prior to the photo shoot.

I'm praying for you and Miss Reba. Please let us know when you find out anything.

I just hope the ranch dressing has nothing to do with the pork chaps. But thank you Dan and Kathy for the kind words. It'll be a few days before anything is known, since she'll have it redone Monday and then they'll have to read it and all that.

Prayers and thoughts for you guys, as ever.
