I look at the calendar Check the date and time My appointment looms Just three days to go I light a lavender scented candle And inhale the soothing scent It calms my nerves Only three days to go I dread the though of the mammogram machine Squeezing and squashing my breasts Will my lump turn out to be cancer Or just a benign cyst Just three days to go Just three days to go And then I may know Anxiety Contest Sponsored by Lewis Raynes 02~25~17 I discovered a lump in my breast and my mammogram is on 28th Feb which is Shrove Tuesday or pancake day. I have to see the humourous side of it … it sure will squash my breasts as flat as pancakes.

    Jan, I think the hardest thing to do in life is live each day like there is no tomorrow. We all want to look ahead. However, if we can ever get to the point where we just enjoy today, it certainly removes a lot of unnecessary stress. Good luck with your test:) Great poem on a very serious subject!

    my thoughts are with you at this time, jan! it's wonderful that you still have your sense of humor (or humour, as you'd say!) about it. i can feel the anxiety in your poem, though, and i'd feel the same way. well done and best of luck to you. i look forward to hearing good news in a poem this week...
