When your 40...

Well, since I turned 40 it was time for that rite of passage....The Mammogram.
This was my second mammogram.  I had a mammogram at 35 for some breast irregularity, but it came out negative.

Now, that I am 40, it was time to have a "screening" mammogram.  Am I really that old??

Anyway, I thought it was pretty appropo that I had this done during this month, October. 
I remember the first mammogram being a cinch, but this one really hurt, ouch!!

But, I am glad I got it done.  The results I will have soon. 

Make sure to check the Ta-Ta's, it could save your life. 

Got really up close and personal with machine, ouch.

Save the Ta-Ta's :)
