Ancestry: Mexican American

In the past couple of weeks, I have been trying to figure out my ancestry using Ancestry. I always felt connected with my culture and where I came from. I am proud of my roots and grateful for my parents, grandparents and other family members. They have made so many sacrifices to give us a better life, and push us to get an education. When my parents came to the United States, they worked hard and provided us with shelter, food, clothing, and lots of love. They both worked two jobs and somehow manage to take care of all of us. I am proud of my roots, and I want to make my family and friends proud of me.

I enjoy doing research, and I hope with the results of my ancestry test, I will be surprise where my ancestors came from

Beauty of Life

When you feel alone

A feeling of Sadness and Uncertainty

There is always a ray of light

Waiting for you.

You must have patience and hope

Without it

It will be hard to exist

Life has a lot of ups and downs

Once you reach the light

There will be lots of happiness and laughter

Be patience, my love

Fibroadenoma:  Part Four

For the last couple of weeks. I’ve been super busy with work, garden planning, school, and health problems. At 1:36pm I submitted my final project for my business class. Woot Woot! 😀 And now I have a two-week break.

On November 20, 2015- I had a fibroadenoma surgery to remove a huge lump on my right side. Not even 3 months. I discovered I had another lump. I thought it was super weird that a lump grew so quickly.

So I made an appointment at the breast center. I got an ultrasound done. Guess what!? The radiologist told me that I had 2 lumps and they made sit up while getting ultrasound down. They found 3 more by accident. So in total, I have 5 lumps ranging from 1 to 2 cms in size.

I asked him again what causes fibroadenoma. He told me that just being a woman and having hormones might be the cause of it. The cause of  Fibroadenoma(s) is still unknown.

He recommended me to not get surgery. Just to keep an eye on it. And have an ultrasound every 6months. Or if I noticed any changes to make an appointment right away.  If I decided I to get surgery it will create a lot of scar tissue which can be bad and can affect my breast if I ever wanted to breastfeed.  Therefore I decided not to get surgery and just keep an eye on the fibroadenomas.

Another issue that I been having is that my wisdom teeth are giving me issues. Three years ago, my dentist warned me to get my wisdom teeth to remove, however, I ignored her. On (Feb 2016) I made an appointment with an oral surgeon, he told me that my upper wisdom teeth are out and the bottom ones are both impacted. Ouch!

The one of the right side has been causing me a lot of pain. I brought some Orajel -Severe Triple. And putting on the site of my impacted wisdom tooth and taking Advil.

The good thing is that I already made an appointment for Next Thursday to get all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed.  So I’m excited. Not!!! haha 🙂
