My Surgeon called this afternoon. My pathology on my lymph nodes all came back clear! This is a specific answer to our prayers!
Upon doing the remainder of pathology on the removed tissue, another tumor was discovered in the tissue of the left breast. Also, many precancerous cells were found. While this is not as relevant now, it completely reconfirms the wisdom of the choice to do the bilateral mastectomy – and we again thank God for His leading there (James 1:5). These findings also confirm the need to do follow up oral medication for the next 5 years. We meet with our oncologist, Dr. Heller, next week to chart a more specific path.
No, cancer isn’t an easy Journey (frankly, today’s pain level was quite high – and the meds just never cut it). But I continue to marvel at how truly gracious The Lord has been to me.
Thank you for your prayers and encouragement. They have made, and continue to make, a huge difference. We serve an amazing God.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10
