Dearest blogging friends - I haven't shared my journey with you which started on the 7th of April this year but I feel the time has come to do so. I will be needing prayer; but also to laugh and share with you all!
I went for a routine Mammography on the 7th of April and although I knew I had lumps in my right breast, they were always found to be benign, showing no danger, although in 2005, they said I was at 'risk'. This time around an echoscopy followed and a direct journey to the Hospital for a Biopsy. I had to wait eight days for the results. They found a cancerous tumor of 2 cm, unaggressive, which reacted positively to treatment. Then followed an MRI Scan which concluded another two smaller nodes were found, but unidentified.
Yesterday I underwent surgery and had a chunk of my right breast removed as well as 15 lymph nodes as one of them was suspect. Why so many - French protocol.
The good news is - I am alive and I still have two breasts! Protocol subscribes Chemotherapy for four months, after which I will have to have radio therapy. These are preventive measures, as I have been cured!
Good news is I am full of peace and joy - because Jesus has been with me all the way!! I was even laughing before going into the operation room, telling them how I wanted to lay comfortably before the anesthesia kicked in.
Numerous people have been praying for me around the world - I believe in the power of prayer and it has helped me enormously. Of course, I have been praying and proclaiming non stop for a healing miracle, I want God to glorify Himself through my life. He can still do it - I do not limit Him in any way!!
I am in bed now, resting, but thinking of you all. How lovely to get my prize box of Hero Arts goodies delivered just this morning!! What a lovely surprise!
I may be absent in the coming months, I hope not for long because crafting is such a fantastic therapy for me.
Please know that I am not looking for sympathy - I am a very lucky woman - I have had a fantastic life, I have been blessed beyond measures!! Hair can grow back on - wounds do heal - all I really need is your company, your friendship. Thank you so much and God bless!!
