I'm up, I cannot sleep. I found a lump at the top of my right breast Thursday and I made an appointment with my doctor for Tuesday.

It just appeared out of nowhere. I'm very, very concerned. I've told my family and friends, and poor DA is worrying her head off.

Whatever this is, I can face it. I have my family, my friends, and you. I'm just a bit worried.

With love,
~Cat

cat,
I hope it will be just an abscess, I had that a few years ago, it came out of nothing, but you are right it is really frightening...
thinking of you!

They have recently declared that to be an old wives' tale - heard it on WCVB just a little while ago. Caffeine will make you run to the BR more, but the volume of liquid taken in is greater than the volume eliminated. I read elsewhere that you're safe as long as you limit yourself to between 3-5 cups of coffee. So that's three highly-caffeinated Starbucks or five of any other brand, I guess.

Weird brush, too.
You wouldn't be the first guy to sport painted toenails! While having a tiny, minor surgery in my doc's office (cyst on my scalp, if you must know) my doc said he'd tell me one thing that no one else knew. When their daughter was little she asked Daddy if she could paint his toenails. What Daddy is going to say no? Yup, he had painted toes. Good thing she did this in winter!

Wow, that is scary Cat. But since it appeared suddenly it's likely that Cara is right that it's a cyst. Or did you bump yourself hard on something and you don't quite remember it? I know this has happened to me for ages! There are times I'm so bruised I look like my dear Himself batters me. Nope, I'm just in a hurry all the time and keep walking into things for real. The corner of the highboy dresser and I are definitely on intimate terms - its corner with my upper left arm. Ouch!

Very scary, ~Cat! I know you can't help worrying about it. My thoughts and prayers that it is nothing to worry about. You can PM me if you need to talk, I've been there with worrisome lumps.

Hugs,
Fiona

Speaking of huffing and a rcent death, Phillip Seymour Hoffman made a good/depressing movie about huffing. Can't remember the name though...

And I know, Dawg. I should have asked first.
I haven't even looked at them yet. Maybe they'll look better this morning.

hmmm, another non-productive morning for everyone I see, lol.

I just got back from grocery shopping. The store wasn't crowded, but everyone in it looked like the people that only shop once a month and had the overloaded carts to prove it. And of course the express lane was closed.
I picked up some parsley, a lemon and some marrow bones for tomorrow night's dinner.
