I learned three very important things yesterday.

The first; That Lumpy is benign.

The second; The place I mentally send myself to stay calm during painful medical procedures has changed. It is no longer the rolling hills of my childhood in Vermont.

I now find myself in a soft rocking chair in the solace of Riley's room. Just the two of us, quietly nursing.

That is where I am at peace and where I draw the strength I need to fight the battles my body insists on putting me through.

Finally; There is actually a much better route to Trader Joe's then going through downtown Worcester. (For the record it's pronounced Wusta).

...well thank goodness for that.

"The first; That Lumpy is benign."

THAT is great news.

And I like your happy place. I need one like that.

I know the relief of having a lump turn out to be benign, and I'm glad you're feeling it.

Whew. So happy it's benign.

And the rocking chair is where I go to. There's something so soothing about that rocking motion and that warm little baby package on your lap.

Good news on the lumpy!

I like your happy place. I don't think I have one. Hmmm, I am going to have to think about that.

Yeah for Lumpy and a quicker route to Trader Joes. And rocking chair nursing is pure bliss
