My breast lump is gone. It felt smaller after applying a heating pad and stayed smaller after each use, then I noticed it itched after palpating it a few days ago to estimate its new size to report that to my doc. A closer inspection revealed a long, hair-thin sebum excretion sitting on the skin's surface above the lump. It continued shrinking and two more excretions followed. What was a 1.5 cm lump a week ago is smaller than a pea and continuing to shrink.

I couldn't read my doctor's reaction over the phone, but she chuckled when I said "My hair follicles are uptight to make up for the rest of me".

...

Also: the use of "Birdhouse in Your Soul" on tonight's Pushing Daisies is FULL OF WIN.

Sounds ooky but at least it was a blocked gland and not something worse like a tumor! Glad it's gone too.

With the disappearance of the lump, my lovely lady lumps again match. And I bought a couple of bras in the meanwhile, as I wanted to wear a sports bra and had none here.

Aside from the awkwardness of bra-shopping in the girls' department, I am pleased to report sports bras are now available in a spaghetti strap style that are very comfortable and can be worn under a wider variety of tops. Yay!

Again yay for very good news, and may years happy, healthy bra-shopping be yours.

Text me tonight if you're up late (I'm at work). Or find me in chat sometime soon.
