Well, folks, it's been a rough 24 hours. I went for a routine checkup with my oncologist yesterday. As she was examining me, she found a lump in my left armpit. Immediately, she was concerned and began making arrangements for a biopsy.
This morning, Brian and I went for the biopsy, and our worst fears were confirmed - I have cancer - AGAIN.
We're in shock, to say the least. I do NOT want to do this again.
But, in the midst of all of this, I praise my God. I already know Him as my Healer and my Portion. I already know him as a God who can move mountains. So, with him on my side I will not fear. Of course, I'm having to make that a choice. It's not a natural reaction.
So, I'll keep you posted.
What I know: this means more surgery, more chemo, and radiation
What I don't know: the stage, the surgery date, the next step
I need your prayers. Pray for a localized tumor. Pray for ease through chemo. Pray for Brian. Pray for us as we make treatment decisions.
