The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

All is well

I had a follow-up ultrasound this morning.  While the tumor still exhibits some questionable characteristics, it has decreased in size, which indicates that it is not likely cancer.

They believe that it is a Lactacting Adenoma--a benign tumor affected by the hormones of pregnancy and lactation. The ductal tissue sampled in the last core biopsy are congruent with this diagnosis.

Whew.  Thank goodness.

Of course there is more follow-up in the near future, just to be sure, but for all intents and purposes the not knowing is over.



  1. SO happy to hear that! Congratulations, what a huge relief taken off your shoulders! Sending more healthy thoughts your way :)

  2. Wonderful! That's such great and reassuring news.

  3. That's great news! Yet another side effect of bearing children...I feel like the list is never ending sometimes ;)
    I hope this takes a huge weight off your shoulders.

  4. that is great news glad to hear all is well !!

  5. so happy to read this ... i'm not sure if this would jive with doctor's advice, but i just stop doing breast-checks while i'm nursing (which is now!) ... it's b/c the tissue is so variable during that time & a scare (or false positive) can really put you through the wringer (as you know all too well).

    i hope they didn't charge you for those extra appoointments? it must be such a huge relief to move on from all this.
