Robots and Boobies~

This is me!
I brought my camera with me today so I could take y'all along. Funny how my camera makes me feel like I have all of you in my pocket...I like that and I needed your support today. Today I had a date with a Robot!
Now I know it's not really a Robot, it's a fancy boobie x-ray machine that could possibly save lives!
I just very well may be the first women ever to ask the nurse for pictures. I know it's kind of a personal issue,especially to spread your business to the world but today YOU'RE important to me! Girls have to stick together and if that means taking you along with me to show you it doesn't hurt and it only takes a few minutes out of your day it's so worth it to me!

It also allows me to ask you for a favor. Would you girls join me here and lift up a very special lady in prayer.

This is my best friend Misty and her Mom Jane. Jane is having surgery Friday morning to have her breast removed due to cancer. Would you join me in prayer to lift her and her family up. I can only imagine what she is feeling . If you have some inspirational words for her and would like to share them please leave her a comment. I will make sure to pass them on to her before her surgery.

Mrs. Jane {aka Nana},Misty and her four sweet granddaughters here are reason enough to spread the word! Show someone you care and become their "boobie buddy". Take them to meet the robot and a fun lunch. It just may save a life~
**If you or someone you know is walking the same steps as Mrs. Jane and would like to be added to the prayers, just leave your name in the comments and we will be sure to lift you up in prayer. Thank you~

  2. Susie...this was such a wonderful post. I have been meaning to have one done and I have always been to scared. Seeing you, does give me more courage. I will be praying for Mrs. Jane and I would like to add my husband's grandmother Mrs. Dot to the prayer list. She was just diagnosed a couple months ago. Thanks so much.

    xo,

  6. I wish I could say something to take it all away but I'm not in control. God is. And He has His reasons. Mrs. Jane, find joy in your family and the love of a Saviour who is right beside you all the way.

  8. Oh, Susieness! Good for you getting your mamo. I get one each year. You are too cute.

    Oh, yes, Dear One, I will surely be praying for Jane. Bless her heart. I can't imagine how she must feel. But we know our God will be with her and I pray He will hold her in His mighty healing arms and give her His peace.

    Thank you for telling us about your friend.
    Be a sweetie,

  12. Thank you Susie for this wonderful post. I'm going to schedule my mammogram tomorrow! Please add Concha Larck to your list, she had surgery on yesterday to remove her breast and will have reconstruction surgery done at a later date.
    Blessings

  13. Yes, girls, get those mammograms done every year. I've been at it for a few now & always make my appt. I will keep Jane in my prayers. My dear mom had a single mastectomy about 14 years ago & has been fine ever since. It's a scary thing, but can be conquered.

  16. What a great and meaningful post! I have my mammo scheduled for this month! I have a boobie buddy, Mandy, and hers is scheduled too!

  17. Thank you for sharing that! I am terrified to have one done...but I am even more terrified not to have it done! Prayers ~ to your friend.

  18. Susie, I am so proud of you for posting. I am really scared to have one of these done when the time comes, but seeing how brave you are helps some. :)

    I just said a prayer for your friend's mama. I have a friend in town who is having surgery on Friday for a growth on her breast.

  22. Susie

    I sent a prayer directly to God asking him to guide this family during their time of need, his word tells us that he will be with us always and carry us through the hard times as well as the good.

    Such a beautiful family.

  23. Susie,
    You are one crazy lady but I loved your concept of getting your Mammogram done!!!
    So sorry to hear about your friend's Mama...hopefully ALL will turn out for the GOOD!
    Loved those photos of her and her family though.
    Hang in there.....
    Be blessed, Joyce

  25. Hey, Susie-Q! Great post, sweet friend! Thank you for this one. I will be lifting up Mrs. Jane is my prayers this morning. I would appreciate prayers for my Mama as she gets the results from her biopsy tomorrow from a knot in her breast that had changed shape. Thank you so much!

    Read the Arkansas post! SO glad y'all had fun! I prayed for you all in that nasty rain. Glad you made it there safely. Loved the pics of the Duggar house! They are such a neat family.

    Hugs!

  26. I'm 47 and have been putting of my mammogram. My first one is in a couple of weeks and I've been so nervous about it hurting. I was very relieved to read that yours didn't hurt!
    I'm so sorry about what Jane is going through and I will certainly be praying for her.

  27. Susie - I am saying a prayer right now for Ms. Jane and her family - and the others listed here.

    Thanks for the reminder - I have been putting mine off!

  28. Can I just say, you rock!?

    At first I thought, oh no she didn't! And I had a tiny chuckle about you showing the world your girls while you do the boobie sqooosh. But then I teared up seeing those amazingly beyond words gorgeous women and hearing of her surgery. Prayers are being lifted up for Ms. Jane and her family. God bless you!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, Susie, how precious you are! I'm sitting here crying because I have been where Misty is right now. My mother had to have a mastectomy 4 years ago. Please let her know for me that I am praying not only for her mom, but for her, too. As the daughter of a cancer patient, I know what she's going through.

    And you can add my mom, Irene to this list. Even though she recovered from the initial breast cancer, it returned on her bones last year. It has been a very, very hard year for her, and doesn't look like it's going to be much easier as time goes on.

    One thing she has said to my sister and me more than once is, "Do EVERYTHING you can to NOT get cancer!" Which, essentially, means to take every preventative move you can...like mammograms.

    Let me say here that for some women, they do hurt. Like me. Man, when she told me to hold my breath I was thinking, "DON'T WORRY, LADY! YOU COULDN'T PAY ME TO BREATHE!!" But, the pain of having cancer is much, much worse, both physically and emotionally.

    Thank you, Susie. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I gotta go blow my nose now.

  31. Thanks for the reminder. It is not something you want to let slip on by. I had not had a mammogram for probably 10 years, and my Dr got very firm about it. When I went, there was such a difference in the results from the time before. I had tiny calcifications and ended up having to have biopsies in both breasts. Not a pleasant experience. I would much rather have had the regular mammograms! Everything was OK, but I have had to have more than one mammogram a year to keep a close check. Having the mammogram is NOTHING compared to having a biopsy, so I encourage everyone to have those mammograms done regularly. I will be praying for Mrs. Jane. Jackie

  32. Susie,I will be praying for your friend and her family. what a beautiful family.
    Asking for prayers as well for my sister Robin and a young little girl name Beth. She is eight years old and her parents found out she has cancer. This young girl has already been through two surgeries and chemo already. God is the Great Physician and I couldn't think of a better place to be than IN HIS HANDS.
    Hugs to you Susie.

  33. I will pray for this lady that her surgery and recovery go well. My sister in law is now 2 years as a survivor. She just lost a good friend 2 weeks ago and it is hard for her.

    And thanks for the reminder to take "Wilma & Betty" for their "glamour shots."

  36. Just 8 days ago, on Oct 7th was the 5th anniversary of the day I was diagnosed with BC. It was a long walk, those 12 months of surgery, treatment and more treatment. But now, when I look back from the other side of the road, I am a better person. Today, I am still cancer free! I pray for Nana and hope that one day, she can look back also.

  37. Hi Susie,

    Perfect post for a very important cause. Mammo's are so important. I am lifting Mrs Jane and her family up in prayer and asking for God's favor over her health.
    I am a "C" survivor and I know the power of prayer. She needs to stay focused on everything positive. Don't let anything negative sneak in (not easy at the time).

    I have a prayer request for the husband of a very good friend. Sandy is battling bone/lung cancer. I saw him yesterday and he could use some serious prayer.
    Thank you so much my friend.
    God Bless you.

    hugs,
    Barb

  45. Blessings to Jane and her whole family. Thank you for setting a good example. I'm passionate about breast cancer awareness as my mother-in-law passed away from it in 1999. Everyone do your self exams, along with mammograms if you need to.

  52. She will be in my prayers. You are so wonderful to blog about this, I for one am one of those who have not had a mamogram in years, probably 4-5 yrs, I am 51. My mom was a 2x breast cancer survivor. I don't know why I have waited, but after reading your blog, I am going to call my Dr, and schedule one tomorrow. Maybe you did just save a life or at least gave me a swift kick in the butt to get moving on this.
    Bless you, Cheryl

  53. Way to go, Susie! I had my first robot date at age 35! It's amazing how losing a mother when she was only 61 years old to a totally different kind of cancer has made me so aware of all the preventative tests out there. Be well!

  54. Great post Susie! i had a biopsy done years ago and was blessed it was nothing. But I always have a yearly mamogram! It's nothing...I really never dread it!

    I will pray for Ms. Jane and for her daughter as she waits. What a lovely family they have! And what a great friend you are!

    Keep us posted!

  57. What a beautiful, wonderful thing you've done here. Another push to get my mammogram done - I've been putting it off far too long. Thank you for this and I will most definitely be praying for Mrs. Jane and her family and for every beautiful woman out there struggling with this disease. There are far too many of them!!!!!

  62. I would like to add my cousin Teresa to the prayer. She's 36 years old and has already survived Hodgkins when she was 22. She has scheduled this coming Thursday to have the same surgery that Jane is having. She has two small children and is a teacher. We believe in the power of prayer!

  67. Great post.

    My cyberfriend Kim is a momma to 7 and found out just one year ago she had breast cancer that is now in her bones. She is such an inspiration, I'm sure she would appreciate being lifted up in prayer as well.

    Prayed for Jane.

  68. Yes, my daughter and some friends just ran yesterday in the Liz Hurley 5K cancer run for our wonderful friend Michelle Bennet who is fighting breast cancer here in Alabama. Take care, It was a lovely post.

  71. Susie, please pray for a young mom of 2 not far from you with cancer. It has spread and the chemo has taken all of the feeling from her body from the waist down. Allison can't stop chemo because the cancer is spreading. I will pray for your friend's mom also.
