I also was told that cancer was found in my lymph nodes. I am going to be having a CT scan to see if any other lymph nodes are enlarged. If they are, a course of radiation will also be in my future.
To top it off, I have a mammogram tomorrow at noon with an ultrasound to follow. This is a follow-up from the biopsy done just prior to Christmas with results that came back inconclusive. I am praying that nothing more will be found. I know the Lord would provide the strength, but I feel so overwhelmed by everything else right now, and still trying to recovery from the surgery.
The good news is, my surgeon kept using the word 'cure'. He firmly believes that this course of action will leave me cancer free, it's just a journey I'm going to be on for the next few months.
Last night I came home and phoned my dear friend Elaine in North Carolina. She shares a sisterhood in this cancer journey. She encouraged me with words of wisdom from her walk through chemo. As I've watched Elaine cling to the Lord through all He has allowed to touch her life, she has been such an example to me. I pray the Lord will grow my fragile faith and fill me with Himself.
Thank you all for your love and prayers. Honestly, I can't thank you enough. I feel the support and love of so many.
To end this message on a happy note...guess who is here. Diane flew into Buffalo today at 1:40pm and my guys drove across the border to whisk her away and bring her home to me. At this very crucial time the Lord has provided some girlfriend days, some smiles, fun and laughter, and yes some tears, but what a gift to my heart today.
