I have a pretty good memory. It is very rare for me to forget a face. If I see it once I can usually pick it out of the most random places.
Mama J called today and immediately I could tell that her voice sounded a little off. I didn't ask right away because after talking to her for just a moment she usually spills whatever it is that's bothering her. She does have a lot going on and so a little weariness to her voice isn't abnormal.
But my memory failed me today.. I forgot about the thing I told myself to remember.
But my memory redeemed itself as I listened to her explain the results of the thing I told myself to remember... I heard the word dysplasia...
That word was ringing back to me from this past summer.. it was a test question..
What does dysplasia indicate?
a. A mature growth
b. Hormone replacement
Dysplasia is an abnormal remodeling of cells basically meaning that they rearrange their selves into something different.. and it almost always leads to cancer...
So I forgot to remember the results Mama J would be getting, but I remembered the thing that would help me forget everything else I was dealing with.
It's not necessarily cancer... Mama J is going to a consultation tomorrow to discuss treatment for dysplasia, which almost always leads to cancer... something tells me I won't forget to remember this in the future.
