- A "unilateral, uniductal" bloody discharge is an immediate candidate for surgery, as it comes with a (not quite as rare as I was told) 3-5% risk of breast cancer.
- I could find very little in the way of pictures/experiences, etc from other women who had experienced similar things.
Below the jump are pictures. They are pictures of my right breast at various stages, which may make them NSFW (Not Suitable For Work), but they are also 100% medical. There is nothing sexual about the following images at all.
Making a trip to Florida on a rainy Friday was less uneventful than we had hoped. Tom was merging onto 95 from 74 and as he began the turn on to the exit ramp, the sky opened up. Visibility shot down. As he tried to merge into the right lane of 95, a semi truck decided at the same time to changes lanes into the exact spot we were trying to merge. Tom tried to slow down, but hydroplaned and started sliding towards the semi truck. He was able to guide the van away from the truck, but at the cost of driving into this ditch.
The rain made the ground so wet we are sitting in about 5 inches of sandy water and completely incapable of freeing ourselves.
So we got a hold of highway patrol, who called a local tow truck, who we had to follow into the nearest town so that we could pay him in cash, and over an hour and a half later, we were on our way, with no more than a flat tire.
So while the cost of the tow was disappointing, we were blessed that the car was still drivable, and most importantly, no one was hurt.

This boy. This beautiful boy is started my journey into motherhood. He is funny, sweet, snarky, sensitive, clever, difficult, cuddly, and stubborn. And he is now four years old.
He wanted to go to the beach for his birthday, despite it being a cold and windy day. So we did. And he wore his jacket and huddled under a blanket, yet still decided he had to wade into the water.
I love this boy!

We were fortunate enough to meet up with my family in Charleston a few weeks back. We stayed only about 24 hours, but were able to go out to dinner, go to the beach (albeit cold and windy), open presents, take a carriage ride around Charleston, and then do some browsing around the city’s shops and market.
But all that paled in comparison to seeing family I haven’t seen in far too long!
When Tom’s mom came down, we tried to fit in some basic entertainment. On the day she left, we putzed around Myrtle Beach, and took a nice family picture! The boys fed the fish, and got lots of exercise!

We recently had Corbin baptized at our church. I know he’s a little old, but this way, his Grandma was able to witness his baptism! When we don’t have family near by, little things like this really make these events special. We were so glad to have our church welcome Corbin (although he was plenty welcome before!) to our spiritual family.
Grandma came down to visit and help out while Tom had a two week full time internship at a local elementary school. On the weekends we took little trips. Here she is in Southport, with a potted flower that Harper put together at the town’s children’s festival. The flower is currently blooming magenta and red flowers on our porch.
