Routine, for some

Tomorrow I'm going for a routine test. At least, it's routine if you have insurance. I'm getting a mammogram. Most likely everything is fine. It's just peace of mind for another year.

But there are a lot of women who don't have insurance. They can't afford this kind of peace of mind. Because of this I click here every day. Some of you already do, but if you don't, please try to take the time. It's easy, it's free. Every day it gives some women a chance for a mammogram. It only costs you a very small amount of time.

Quick update: My exam turned out to be totally routine, as I expected it would, and I'm good to go until next year. :)

I clicked!

Hope your squashing goes as okay as it can tomorrow. :)

I'll slam my boobs in the toilet seat for solidarity.

I clicked, too.

I will NOT, however, be slamming the girls in the toilet seat.

No solidarity here... Not that kind, anyway.

Bucky, thanks for the cicks, and the solidarity. :)

Courtney, the clicks are more important than the boob slamming solidarity. lol

"Click, for the Chics, in 2006"


Now, I just need to find someone that will slam may naughty bits in the toilet seat. Wait, did someone already comment about that? Maybe that was Henry "Hank" Rollins.

Woo-hoo! Thanks, Mr B! Hee hee, naughty bits.

haha, Mr. B!!

He's so cute, eh Squirl?!

I clicked also, Thanks Squirl.

Now, I may have that dream I mentioned over at YPS with an added visual, INJURY. Egg-nog dipped boobs in a mammogram machine can be be downright dangerous!

(and good luck ;)

I clicked ~ but will leave the toilet seat solidarity to Bucky.
Sending good thoughts your way!

Dori, yes he is, isn't he? And no, I wouldn't recommend liquid in the machinery.

Nina, thanks! Clicking is showing solidarity enough. :)

Whilst clicking, don't forget to do a self test ladies. Even though it may not be routine to get felt up by a stranger doesn't mean you can't save your own life.

Yep, Hank already discussed whacking the wang in a toilet seat.

I'm glad that the exam came back A-OK. For some reason, that kind of good news has cut down on my vulgar content.

Kittn, you make a very good point!

Bone, please only whack in the name of health and safety. And thanks!

I read Bucky's comment about slamming her boobs in the toilet seat, and now I have no clue what I was gonna say.

Love and hugs to you, Squirl.

Ladybug, Bucky does the same thing to me. :) Thanks! Love and hugs right back.

Just when I get used to having my boobs squished down to 1/8 inch every year, they tell me I should really have a colonoscopy too. :(

Blogger Squirl said...

Platypus, thanks, on both counts!

tshsmom, oh no, you too? I have that coming up next week. Yuck

I'm not even going to comment about boob squashing, but I am going to say thanks for reminding me to click. I used to do it everyday and somehow got out of the habit. Glad to hear everything was normal.

Squirl: I echo Bucky’s words…except not as Buckyish.

I hope all went well.

I clicked! I have not yet joined the ranks of mammogram victims, but it's only a matter of time. And being so little to begin with that if they ever smash them that hard, I'm sure they'll retreat into my chest cavity and never return. Eeep!

Will we get to see photos from the colonoscopy?

Even audio would be good.

Tee hee M_D! Thanks!

dmmgmfm, I have gotten out of the habit on occasion. Now I make sure I get there every day. I'm glad you click, too.

Nick, thanks! Yes, everything turned out fine. Even though I was sure that it would, it still felt good when she told me. :)

Eclectic, I'm glad you clicked. The best part about a mammogram is that it's only, usually, once a year. I'm sure your girls will handle it just fine. :)

Bucky, um, no.
