My dear sister in Christ,
We all lift you up in prayer on this path, never forgetting that God is not arbitrary and thus He has a purpose, a specific purpose or purposes for this bend in your road. May you be a light to all those around you. I pray for your healing, your wisdom and the doctor's wisdom in treatment. I pray for your comfort and peace during this time, and that you will never lose sight of God in this, your spiritual vision will remain as it now.
I rejoice to hear that it is not as agressive as thought and that it is so early. I rejoice that your trust is in God our Savior and that you follow Him. I thank God that He has you in His very hand, nor will leave you nor forsake you. You will continue to be in my prayers as it all gets worked out. May God be with the doctors for discernment and to determine the best treatment. May your eyes continue to focus on Him and not the waves that are crashing, easier said than done, lol. You are loved and I look forward to seeing what God will do! Much love to you this day! Andrea
I am so excited of the living testimony to His Glory that your life has been and continues to be, dear sister.
Thank you for your faith and courage.
We are with you!
Thank you for your prayers and encouraging comments. They really mean a lot! I know a lot of people have been praying for me and I really have been feeling them!
Praise the Lord! I will pray for you during this time. God is faithful and He will bring you through. He has a purpose and a plan. God will never leave you nor forsake you.
I'm praying for you :)
While reading this blog, I felt like I was reading something about someone else. I will never forget that day. I teach which means trying to reach me during the day is a nightmare. So, we had arranged for me to call pathology at 4:00 the next day. After confirming I had cancer, the pathologist went to get my preliminary report. I think he grabbed someone else's :wink:
The cancer which was "contained in the duct" had actually broken through the duct wall and was in an area which was "off-limits". Cancer cells are notorious for ignoring the rules. :)
The very, very small tumor was actually 3.5 cm. It's not huge but it was not very, very small either.
He was correct in saying it was not as aggressive as they had feared... it was more aggressive than what they had thought. It was what is known as a triple negative. There are no drugs to prevent or inhibit growth. The recurrence rate over the next two years is extremely high. After that it will drop dramatically.
Knowing now what I didn't know then, I still have to say I am pressed but not crushed! God is still bigger!
Cancer cells may be notorious for breaking rules, but they will never go further than God allows them to. Admittedly that's hard to wrap my brain around.
But I just have to sit and wonder how many people you have come into contact with over the last year that you ordinarily would not have . . . and the salt and light of Christ you were to them.
