Great blog! I don't know what I would do without my Spiritual Father. I'll be praying for you:)
Thank you for your post..God is an awesome father and one I am GLAD to have in my life. I already know that you will make a full recovery after your surgery and be better than ever! God Bless..
Dear sister, we are united in prayer for you.
God's glory will be shown through this, as already has been through your faith and ability to abide in JOY despite your circumstances.
I'm praying for you, too, complete recovery! Your blog is similar to our bible study lesson this morning where Peter walked on water. So long as he was focused on Jesus, he could walk on water, do the impossible. But when he took his eyes off the Savior and looked at the circumstances, he began to sink.
Stay focused on the Savior, dear one!
I am full of thanksgiving tonight, Only two lymph nodes were removed and the preliminary results indicate that they are negative for cancer! I'll have the final results within a few days as well as the stage of the cancer. I had been a bit concerned because I had already known I had an enlarged lymph node but the MRI had suggested that was just the way I was. It looks like it was correct. Also, the tumor was what is known as "triple negative" (no hormone receptors) and grade 3 which meant it is generally an agressive cancer. There was a very good chance it had spread.
I learned my surgery took longer than usual. It seems that when the lab received my sample, they had a difficult time finding the tumor. My surgeon had to leave surgery and actually go find it for them. They didn't lose the sample, mind you, they just couldn't find the tumor. I'd understood that the tumor was 2.0-2.5 cm. That's not huge but I'd think they would have been able to find it. I'd been told previously that the actual tumor-size might be smaller than what was showing up on the ultrasound and mammograms. I guess it was. I'll find out in a few days.
I have never done well with anesthesia. I was really praying about that. God really helped me through that. I only had a couple of minor upsets when I first moved and walked. I actually ended up going out for dinner about 5:00 tonight on the way home from the hospital. That's amazing for me. Other than sleeping a lot, I seem to be doing fine. Praise God!
Thank you so much for your prayers and words of encouragement!
Praise God for the good report! I can't believe you went out to dinner, WOW, too much! Continuing to pray sister! Sleep away and we look forward to seeing the Lord's magnicient hand in all this. Love ya, Andrea
