I don't usually write deep personal stuff on my blog here. For whatever reason, I just haven't really felt comfortable to do that, I suppose.
Now I need to.
Please, please, please pray for me today, if you will. The short version of the story is this...
Last week I found a lump in my breast. Made an appointment for a mammogram. Got in the next day. Told the tech what I'd found before she started. She was very concerned and actually found another pea sized one. They did the mammogram and read the results. I then had an ultrasound.
The day after the tests, I got a call from my own ob-gyn group and they had scheduled an appointment with a breast surgeon. My appointment is this morning.
If any you have been reading my blog, you'll already know a bit of my family history...
My mom died of breast cancer. Two of her sisters and a niece have also dealt with breast cancer. One of my dad's sisters just went through having breast cancer.
My cousin Tammy has had 2 bouts of thyroid cancer. She goes today for a full body scan to see if her cancer has returned.
We got together this past Saturday to do a little shopping and have lunch. You can imagine it was an interesting conversation at our little table at Olive Garden that day :)
Thanks in advance for your prayers. Oh my word, do I need some peace right now. I am so nervous I feel like I could throw up :)
I'll keep you updated....
Well, here's the update. (Yeah, I know - I wasn't expecting it so soon either.) The doctor just called with the results and I DO have breast cancer.
I spoke with Tammy...she is fine! Praise God!
Please keep me & my family in your prayers...it will be most appreciated :)
