The waiting room feels normal, filling out the paperwork same o same o. Walk to the exam room and go through the same motions..... remove your top. Stand here, put your arm here, hold still while the machine makes it's cycling noises, don't move, Squash Squash!! Ok turn this way and put your arm up and hold this railing. Be still and don't move again, Squash!
Soon the 'screening' mammogram is over and the technician tells you to get dressed. While she hurries to collect and send off the images to the radiologist, a woman's mind is racing. What did you see on the screen? Can you tell me? As usual the technician looks down and says she can't answer your questions. It will be seen by the radiologist and then sent to the Dr for review. If they need to do more tests those are called 'diagnostic' mammograms and you will need to schedule again. You will get a letter in the mail with the results. It takes time...... more time than any woman wants to want to find out if her world is going to be turned upside down. Hurry up to wait...... and wonder..... and worry.
What should you do in the meantime while the systems of healthcare go through their regular 8-5 jobs, holding your life in their hands? Put your Mammogram results in God's hands - He already knows you from the inside out. He is able to take care of this situation like He has taken care of all of your other situations in life! Lift your arms and give it all into His Hands.
Don't wait on man, just do this...... "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength'. Wait on God.
Every day He will guide your steps for He knows the plans He has for you.....
