異常なし!

なんだかバタバタしてました。
ここ数日間の天気はドヨーンとしてたけど、
今日は超快晴。空も緑もまぶしいよ。
本日はアルアルさんが家に来てます。にぎやかです。
After cool and rainy days, it becomes nice summer day.  #weather #toki #mynephewal
日本に戻ってきて健康診断やら歯医者やらせっせといってます。
私はわりと健康体なんですけど、アメリカで保険がないから今のうちに出来るだけチェックしておこうと思ってね。
特別検診、子宮頸ガン検診、乳がん検診、大腸がん&胃がん検診、そして歯医者さん。
それ以外にも、花粉症、夏風邪、喉のウィルスなどなどこの4ヶ月ほどで何度もお医者さんにかかりました。
医者さん嫌いな私がこれだけ精力的にいってるのってすごい!
日本のお医者さんや看護婦さんってアメリカ比べると丁寧で親切だし、
病院も医院も待ち時間短いし予約すぐ取れるしすごくいい。
健康保険みんなにあるし、医療代は安いしね。 
日本に住んでる人感謝した方がいいよ。本当にすごく良い事だと思うよ。

実は先日の乳がん検診で撮ったマモグラムの検査で腫瘍ではなくて『石灰化』した細胞が映ってるという事で、再検査のお手紙をもらったの(涙)
がーん、がーん、がぁーん。
『大丈夫さ♪』って自分に言い聞かせながらも、超ブルーになりながら昨日病院で再検査を受けました。
再度のマモグラムにもエコーにも何も映っていなかったので、結果『異常なし』。いぇーい♪
私、まじで極度のビビリなので、先生が『大丈夫ですねぇ〜っ』て言ってくれた瞬間から涙目になっちゃいました(笑)

病院からの帰り道のドヨーンとした空とはウラハラに私の心は超快晴♥
健康で毎日を過ごせる事、
家族や友だちと笑い合える事、
今まで見過ごしてた小さな草花や人の優しさや、
ほんとに沢山の事が一瞬ですごくキラキラ愛おしくみえる。
当たり前にある事って、ある日それがなくなりそうになった時や失ってしまった時にとても大切だった事に気づくんだよね。
そんな事をこの一年間で沢山考えさせられてきた。
そして昨日もまた思った。
今私のある場所いる場所に感謝したい。
ありがとう♥

It has been chilly and rainy days for last few days, but today it is lovely summer day.
Sky and mountain greens are super bright and shinny.

Since I came back to Japan, I visited many doctors and did a lots of check ups. As I don't have a health insurance in US anymore,  I do as much as I can while I can use Japanese health insurance here.
I can speak from only my experience... Doctors and nurses in Japan are very kind and polite. You don't have to wait too long to see the doctors, and you can make an appointment to see them easily. Most of doctors' offices open Saturdays, and some operates until 7pm in weekdays. 
Everyone can have an insurance without full-time job, and medical expense is not too high.  Japan have very good system. It is not perfect, but I think people here should be thankful for having a good medical system.

I did mammogram check last month, and got a result of ..."I need to re-check at the hospital." I was super down, and couldn't shake bad results or painful biopsy off from my mind. ( yes, I am super chicken.)  I went to the hospital yesterday, and did another mammogram and an additional ultra sound at this time. The result is I AM FINE!!!! Yay, yay, yaaaaaaay!
On the way home, despite of gloomy rainy weather, my heart becomes wonderful sunny:)
I am healthy,
I laugh with family and friends,
I now find small flowers, tiny greens, or people's kindness more appreciative.
List is unlimited...
Everything becomes so adorable and awesome.
We seem to take our daily life for granted.
When we about to lose something, or we already lost them,
we realize how precious these things were...
I have been thinking about this a lot for a past year and yesterday again..
I am very grateful for what I have.
I don't want to forget my appreciation to all
Thank you all.

  1. I just been on my first mamo a week ago too! I have to say that everyone was very nice there. I still wait for my result but I expect to be OK since no one called me ;-)
    I'm not planning to take this exam every year....

    1. I did my first one actually almost year ago in US, and this was my second time..
      I've never had a big problem so far on any check-ups and exams, so whenever something goes a little wrong, I tend to freak out.
      ahaha, I don't want to take this exam next year for sure since I did mine twice this year already:)
