Wow. Woke up this morning and could actually see the mountains beyond my deck. The sky is even blueish.
There is still some smoke, but it’s far more tolerable than I expected it to be.
It’s amazing how we take for granted things like breathing healthy air, that is not full of smoke and particulates!
This issue with the smoke and fires has been going on for over 2 months. It’s been totally oppressive.
That, paired with my need for two separate needle biopsies to check for breast cancer, has just been too much.
Depression has dripped slowly into my brain, and it’s been hard to rid myself of it.
The first biopsy, on Friday, wasn’t as bad as I’d expected it to be. The technicians were so nice, and one held my hand during the procedure.
She told me that 87 percent of these biopsies come back negative. I’m of course hoping to be a part of the 87 percent, rather than the 13 percent that have cancer.
Tomorrow, I’m having the second biopsy.
I’ve been feeling fairly calm about it.
I was also informed that if this is cancer, it’s at the very beginning, beginning stages.
It’s nice to be able to breathe again.
