10 years ago this week, Terry and I headed north from New Orleans for a week long Thanksgiving break.
We stopped in Memphis to celebrate our 7th anniversary, eating yummy food and listening to great music.
We spent a few days in Chicago checking on our condo, visiting family and playing tourists…
And we wrapped up the week in Detroit for the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends.
On the Thursday before we left NOLA, I had my first ever mammogram at 43. While riding the ‘L’ in Chicago that Thanksgiving Week Monday, heading to get some yummy soup at the Soup Box, I got a call from my doctor’s office. The doctor’s assistant told me that my mammogram showed irregularities and that I needed to have another done as soon as I returned to New Orleans. I was freaked.
Little did I realize just what a life changing hurricane was barreling into my world.
