At any rate, in keeping with my theme of revisiting old blog posts AND proving my increasing senility, here's what I wrote on May 29, 2012:
My informal research indicates that women who hear or read about their girlfriends getting mammograms are 72% more likely to pick up the phone and schedule their own overdue screenings than other women. That's why I'm sharing that I had my girls checked out today.
Lucky me, our local Nordstrom has a mammography suite.
They partnered with a local hospital to offer general breast screenings. They don't provide ultrasounds or high level screenings, though.
So yeah, here comes my annual trip to the local shopping mall.
Oh, and I can't leave out this little gem of haiku from 2006:
boobs in a vise grip
smooshed for just a few seconds
my first mammogram
Are you due for a check? Make that call!
