Who is Your Hero?

I saw this really cool ad in the LDS Living Magazine yesterday as I was waiting for the boys to finish their appointment at the dentist.  It was for these posters of people that we read about in the Book of Mormon.  (For those of you who don't know what the Book of Mormon is, check it out here: Book of Mormon.  It's a book of scripture that is about God's dealings with the people that lived on the American Continent anciently.  Jesus Christ appeared to them shortly after he was resurrected, and you can read about how he performed miracles and established his church with 12 disciples here, just like he did in Jerusalem.  It's another witness of the divinity of Christ.)  The posters say, "Who is Your Hero" and lists facts about each one.  I got on there today and ordered 4 of them for my boys' room.  There are about 12 to choose from.  I thought it was such great idea!  Here's the link if anyone's interested:

Gotta Love Those Mammograms!

I had my annual mammogram a few weeks ago.  I got a letter in the mail telling me that I needed to go back in for some additional views and an ultrasound on one breast because they found something that wasn't there last year.  The letter came a few days before Christmas, so every time I would call to make an appointment no one was there.  Talk about torture!!  There's nothing like making people wait to find out if there's something seriously wrong with you. Especially since I have a family history of breast cancer and my mom died 4 years ago from it. Not fun!!  I finally got ahold of them to make an appointment, but couldn't get in for another week after that.

So, today was the day that I went in for ANOTHER fun office visit.  When I got into the room the nurse told me that they found something on the right side that looked like it might be a cyst.  I've noticed some pain on that side, and she explained to me what a cyst was.  As she was getting ready to get some more shots she told me that she was going to have to press harder on the machine to get a really good view.  I was thinking, "Press harder?  You've got to be kidding me".  So, I manage to put my very warm skin onto the freezing metal plate as she smashes (and smashes, and smashes....) the plate against me.  Holy mother of pearl!!  It hurt so badly I couldn't even breathe.  And, not once, but TWICE!!!  It's bad enough when your breasts aren't sore, but add the soreness from a cyst and it was unbearable.  At least the ultrasound part didn't hurt.  I saw this cartoon and thought it was hilarious.  I actually told the nurse today, "I don't think you're helping my saggy boobs one bit.  I think it's making them worse".
Here's another funny one.  I actually said to Todd today "Just imagine your stuff smashed into that machine as hard as it will go.  It's not pleasant".  

Just once I'd love for men to experience this, and being pregnant for one day.  Wouldn't that be great?
