No one looks forward to medical examinations. Who in their right minds will skip and jump joyfully into a medical research facility?
Adhering to the advice of my gynaecologist, I am to go for a mammogram this afternoon. My last one was 7 years ago. And I do know enough people who did not survive cancer. The memory of them helps me face any necessary preventive care procedures with calmness.
The two medical staff I encountered were friendly and did their work very diligently. I have to admit that this thoroughness made me worry and uneasy at times. Thankfully, I was told right away that everything is in order. Those were the loveliest Dutch words of the day! Amen!
