    Here is a site where you can make sure it is:

    http://www.fda.gov/cdrh/mammography/certified.html

    Make sure you get a yearly mammogram.

    Take care,

    How are you?

    I would have to look it up to be sure but off the top of my head I believe a baseline mammogram is recommended at 35 - 40 or so and then yearly after that.

    Of course it also depends on family history -- if you are high risk it would be sooner.

    Take care,

    Karen :)

    I think you'll be fine for a while -- just make sure you do you self exams each month.

    You do monthly self breast exams don't you? If not you really should as a preventive measure -- never hurts to be a little cautious.

    I hope you get your sleep pattern worked out soon -- if it is any consolation I know how you feel.

    I am back to 3 hours each night...argh

    I had been getting close to 6 or 7 hours a night for about 5 months or so and now that is over I guess...

    Oh don't you just get tired of it all I know I sure do but hey what can we do.

    I have an appointment with my physician this coming Thursday so maybe she'll be able to help.

    Take care of you,

    Karen :)
