We Interrupt Making Over Martha Month for an Important Health Update

I usually like to keep my personal stuff to my other blog, Here and There. However, sometimes it's important to share.

Lately, on Here and There, I've been chronicling my current health challenge -- microcalcifications discovered in my left breast. Yesterday, I underwent a stereotactic breast biopsy to discover if those microcalcifications mean I have some malignant cells there or not. I described the experience in detail on Here and There, so if you or anyone else in your family or your network of friends could benefit by reading it, please send them the link.

For many years, people did not talk about breast issues and died from their silence. I'm committed to sharing about this, no matter what the results because early detection is key to survival.

Next post, I wrap up Making Over Martha Month with a delicious treat -- biscotti!

Its really wonderful of you to share this information, Deb, and I know it will be a great help to others. I'm sending you positive, healthy vibes and saying a prayer that your results will be negative.

In addition, I'm looking forward to the biscotti.

Take care of yourself this weekend and I hope the pain will resolve quickly.
