X marks the spot!

My favorite day of the week, with my friend Jenny, Jenny I got your number.....Jenny Matlock Alphabet Thursday, and here is her phone number....867-5309 ( I am soooo corny I know) I thought where do I turn to?  and then I thought  I got it, I got it!! so let's have a good time this week!~
I am wondering just how many X's are going to be out there.  I am betting we will see a lot X-rays...so I decided to put my little Debbiedoo's twist and humor, and get some X-tra brownie points from the teacher. So what exactly is an X-ray?



    1. A relatively high-energy photon having a wavelength in the approximate range from 0.01 to 10 nanometers.
    2. A stream of such photons, used for their penetrating power in radiography, radiology, radiotherapy, and scientific research. Often used in the plural. Also called roentgen ray.
  1. A photograph taken with x-rays.
  2. OK, we knew all this right?
Being a woman, we all know the anxiety of going for our yearly Mammo's!~ So very important, and I do hope you go as scheduled.  As we know early detection is our best chance of survival on this dreaded disease called Breast Cancer. Even if you feel a lump or bump or something that just does not feel or look right....do make an appointment to get it checked out. I have heard and known of cases when a woman feels a lump and possibly  it is still NOT detected on X-ray, so be persistent and ask for an ultra sound or MRI.  I know some women do not like to even do their own self examinations as we do not know what feels weird and what feels normal to us. Here is a little tutorial I found that looks user friendly to follow.
http://www.stevens-tech.edu/womensresources/resources/Breast%20Self%20Exam.JPG Sorry guys who come over for Alphabet Thursday, as I have mentioned before with me...expect the unexpected!~ This is important stuff for us gals!
Seeing I started off on such a serious note,  I will end this segment with some mammo humor....hope you enjoy, go for your MAMMO soon if you have not done so.!
http://www.butlerwebs.com/jokes/images/Manograms.jpg
Well you see guys we can arrange something for you as well....
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_-bYaXed-rQU/SB26cEkGQ-I/AAAAAAAAAmU/DW10RNNRzmg/s400/mammogram2.jpg
Yep that is what it feels like when we leave!
http://davegranlund.com/cartoons/wp-content/uploads/color-mammograms-web.jpg
Then of course they go and change the guidlines on us.  What does your Doctor say? I have been going every years since I am 39. I really hate going every year, however I would rather go every year than not....
http://storms.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8345157d269e20115708aa499970b-800wi
 Perhaps you have never had one either.....this is the time to go....http://betweenfriendsblog.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8354c22ad69e20115707ed028970b-800wi Because you have to.  That is all for my  class today.  Hope you have learned something, laughed a bit, and remember to schedule your Mammogram.  I go every October, that is breast cancer awareness month...I never forget! Speaking of never forget.  Don't forget to GO vote for me if you liked my Oprah audition tape.  You may view and vote. Vote as many times as you have time for...vote, backspace, vote again!!~

Great post, Debbie. There are a lot of women that put off getting their yearly mammogram~I am one of them. But it is SO important.

I really enjoyed your tongue in cheek look at this and the cute cartoons! Thanks!

Hi Miss Debbie! I have voted for you everyday since your post. Your numbers are growing! :)) Woohoo! Exciting! I hate going for my mammogram but I do it anyway! This is a nice and important reminder to everyone!

Love this post! Very informative and also hilarious! That first cartoon is just too funny!!! My mom went in for a routine exam and they found a small lump. After some tests they discovered it was cancer. She had surgery asap and then treatment. That was almost two years ago and she's been clear since. SO SO SO SO important to get checked out every year. Catching things early is vital.

The "manogram" was hilarious!!! This was a great post, Debbie. I've been going almost every year, since I lost my mom at such a young age, she was only 43 years old. I've been voting for you, too!...Michelle

I am 50 and haven't ever had a mamogram. Every time I go to the gyn she gives me a slip to go, but I never do. I keep saying that I am going to have breast thermography done instead, which detects tumors earlier than a mammogram, but I haven't done that either! Thanks for the reminder!

Blogger Ms. Bake-it said...

Great post Debbie! Love the humor of course. I am one of those that put off mammos. I have been averaging about every two years (unless the doc nags me).

As soon as I received your email about your audition I voted and created a button for my sidebar. I voted again today. Good luck!

Wonderful post, Debbie!

My way to remember to go yearly to my GYN to get a mammogram prescription is to schedule my appointment during the month of my birthday. That way I hope to ake sure I'll still be here to see another birthday!

I'm voting and voting! :-)

I'm still a few years off from my first mammogram. I'll start when I'm 40, I guess. I do the self exams, though. I'm hoping they invent something better than that squishing thing by then.

June 30, 2010 at 7:23 AM  
Blogger Debbie@Debbie-Dabble said...

Debbie,
So true!! Don't put off a mammo!! As a cancer survivor and a nurse, I know how crucial early detection is. Because of early detection, I did not have to have my kidney removed when a cancerous tumor caused a blockage from the kidney to the bladder in the ureter.
I had a breast biopsy last Oct. because of an area with irreg. margins on my last Mammo and I remain cancer free 5 years later so don't put it off. Also go for those colonoscopies after age 50 , it could save your life!!!!

Thanks girlfriend! I have been busy. Blogging takes alot out of you when you do two in one day! Good thing it was overcast today and this was my stay home day. I'm not sure how much we will be on the water as it is insane here too on the 4th! Lots of reckless boaters! We will most likely be lakeside or will go out in the sailboat where they cannot help but see us! Take care and have a wonderful 4th! You don't need to post this to your blog if you don't want, just wanted to say thanks for all the support always! I appreciate it! Gotta go cast another vote for you today too! :))

Dear Debbie,
Great take on the big X-word and good humour for a good cause!
I too chose the word X-Ray, but left the technical side out of it. (Or left it to Wikipedia!)
As far as the mammogram is concerned, I must confess that I have not been willing to do it. But you are right. I really should get myself checked.

Funny, informative and important post!

Best wishes,
Anna

Great post - in this province we're funded every year up to age 50 and every other year thereafter.

Oh boy, do I have mammogram stories for you.

But I won't hijack your post...except to say...if you're afraid of having one done ask for the Digital ones. Waaaaaayyy less uncomfortable.

This was a really X-cellent post.

I'm a little annoyed at your for sharing my number, though.

Did you have to sing that to write it down?

I've been voting every day (where do some of those people get 8,000,000 votes? Craziness!) and I'm off to vote right now again...

But before I go I wanted to give you an A+ for a wonderful link!

Nicely done Debbie. However, I need to point out that your information is incorrect. Men ARE at risk for breast cancer too. It's usually noticeable in a self-exam and occurs mostly in men 60+. It does occur in younger men too. Spread the word and show your sons and spouses how to do the self-exam. If your dad is alive, show him too, especially if your mom is no longer here to show him.
