The Mammogram, vol. 2

On Friday, May 25th, I submitted additional images during my second mammogram.  As you may recall, I had my first mammogram on May 17th.  Not only did I need to submit to three additional X-rays, I also had to have a sonogram.  In the interest of full disclosure, I must share that, unlike the first set of X-rays, the second set of X-rays was quite uncomfortable.  Not unbearable, but definitely uncomfortable.  I had to hold my breath to get through the discomfort.  Compression.

After the X-rays, the doctor told the technician to send me for a sonogram.  At that point, I began wondering what the doctor had seen.  “Why do I need to have a sonogram.”  The technician had a good poker face, so I could not determine whether or not she had seen anything.  As I laid on the examination table in the sonogram room, I stretched my neck to try to look at the images on the computer screen to see why I had to take yet another test.  Of course, I could barely see anything.

Then, I had to talk to myself.  “Stop looking at the screen.  You don’t know what you are seeing.”  So, I closed my eyes and sang to myself.

In the name of Jesus, in the name of Jesus
We have the victory
In the name of Jesus, in the name of Jesus
Satan will have to flee.
Tell me who can stand before us
When we call on this great name
We have the victory!

A few minutes later, the sonogram technician said, “I don’t see anything.”  I was confident that God had heard my song!  I wanted to do a shout right there!  Keep on moving.  There’s nothing here to see.  I have the victory!  Remain encouraged.
