Today was “that” day, I was due for my annual mammogram. Since I was diagnosed in 2016 with breast cancer, and underwent subsequent treatment, as a follow-up I have been called up for an annual mammogram. A little momentary discomfort is a small price to pay for such great care. Most hospital care is free here in New Zealand, and I have been very impressed (and oh so grateful) for the cancer care I have received.
As a bonus, I was treated to a mini quilt show in the breast screening rooms. This beauty was hanging in the waiting room. A Mariner’s Compass quilt with all those tricky points, stitched in nice restful shades of blue.

Then further round by the changing rooms there were more quilts on the walls. Such a feast for the eyes, and both of them glowed with colour.

I’m not sure if these quilts were gifted to the Breast Screening rooms, or if local quilters come and change them periodically, either way, I certainly appreciated seeing them hanging up.
Procedure over, it was time to rest and recover over morning tea, so we went to one of the local cafes. Coffee and a scone each, cheese scone for me, and date and orange for Robin, nice and tasty indeed.

The results will take a couple of weeks, I was told, so fingers crossed that all remains well.
