Waiting is the Hardest Part

In the summer of 1981, I was well into entering my pre-teen years while rocking my best ‘80s hair! The number one hit at the time was “The Waiting” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Fast forward, 40 YEARS LATER, and.the only thing going on in my mind is WHEN am I going to get the results back from my mammo? And hearing that song in my head over and over again.

Waiting…it honestly is the hardest part. Mammograms are a piece of cake and the women who do them are so wonderful! I have NEVER had a grumpy or rude mammographer. Possibly, it is because these women know that they truly are on the front lines of helping to save lives. Possibly, it is because they know that early detection is key to living a long life OR possibly it is because they work in facilities that, I must brag, are state of the art and so welcoming.

This mammo, I had the opportunity to go to the new AdventHealth imaging facility in Winter Garden, Florida. WOW! Amazing experience…and now just waiting.
