Well, Ive had the biopsy. I found it when Ive had the biopsy and Id missed her call. My doctor left me a message. And inevitably, they you a message if the results are fine, they usually tell you. Of theyre not, they ask you to call back. And so when I finally did get a old of her, she told me it was ‘in situ ductal carcinoma. And Im like, “I heard whats carcinoma,” knowing that doesnt good, and so I said, “That means cancer, am I right?” And she said, “Yes, do you want to come in and talk about it or—” “Im like, “Well, youve just told me over the phone.”So I said, “No. Make an appointment. I want a surgery. I want it out.” “Are you sure you dont want to talk about it?” Im like, “No. No, thats what I want to do.” I mean I dont know if theres a good way. Theres probably not a good way to tell anyone that kind of news. But Ive—I dont know, its kind of—theres two schools of thought. You either waiting, you make an appointment and they tell you in person and then youre waiting longer for your test results or you just—they give it to you straight when they get them and they tell you over the phone so, I dont know. I kind of wish I would have been in person. But, what can I do? Every doctor has their own way of doing it I guess.
