Today is a good Day

I had a 6 month follow up for Mammo and Sono today - can you say OUCH!!!   if you ladies think it hurts normally trust me it is much worse once you have had surgery and Radiation on a breast.

As I sat in the waiting room after the Mammo collecting my thoughts and getting copies of my Magazine article out to leave, I sae a lady come out of room 1 and thought Bless you my friend - she was there to have wire put in and head over to the Hospital because her journey had just began.  I wanted to run after her and say stay positive, eat healthy and LAUGH alot!!  but I felt overwhelmed with memories of June 28, 2011 - my surgery date.  

I left 2 hours after entering and with great news - NDD (no disease detected) or NED (no evidence of disease) - woo hoo!!  this triple negative BC lady is happy with that news.  I will go back in 6 months for a follow up.   

the sun was coming out as I arrived and almost made a heart in the sky - that's a good sign!!

the lovely gown you get to wear during your appointment.

 here's the shot I took of the machine we all dislike!!
yep these were placed on my breast before the Mammogram and taken off for the sonogram - forgot I had them in my pocket

Roses are Red - not always!!

I found this rainbow colored Rose at my favorite Nursery Dee's in Oceanside, NY.  I go to Dee's to get all the flowers I use in my still life photos.  Frank and his staff are the best in the florist dept there.

NYC Easter Parade 2013

I  missed the Easter Bonnet showcase last year but got to got this year - I don't like to call it a parade because it's not one.  They close 5th ave from 49th to 57th and people come with their Easter attire one to walk up and down 5th and have their photos taken. 
The Easter Bonnet Showcase is always fun to photograph and see the creative way people show off their Easter Bonnets.  Here are some photos from my camera lens
