Thank you so much for all of your prayers and encouragement regarding my lymph node biopsy. To have your company on this journey is the biggest blessing of all.
We received wonderful news that my lymph nodes are ALL CLEAR!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so overwhelmed with gratitude. This news is a game changer, and I am rejoicing in the goodness of the Lord.
My youngest son, Hayes, upon hearing the news that my lymph nodes were negative, announced that “negative means positive, mom!”. Yes, yes it does.
The next step in my treatment is the double mastectomy, which is tentatively scheduled for the day after my birthday, May 23rd. I like to say that with a biopsy on my wedding anniversary and a mastectomy close to my birthday, I sure know how to celebrate! (I think I’ll just sit Mother’s Day out this year 😜).
I asked my oldest son, Hudson, if he was okay with me having such a big surgery during his high school finals week. His response? “This is not about me, mom, please do whatever you have to do to get the cancer out!!” I might or might not have fallen into a proud mom puddle after that.
I want to thank Trevor, my mom, dad and my sisters for being there during and after the biopsy. Taking my kids to school, watching movies, walking the dog, etc. I’ve also found that unsweet tea is a good substitute for Diet Coke, and I think Ashley has brought me a different flavor of tea every day to try. (For those that know Ash, she doesn’t do anything half way). I’m so unbelievably thankful for my family.
And YOU!!! I’m so thankful for you. Your continued prayers are greatly appreciated, as are your texts, emails, comments, etc. I find so much strength in your words, and I thank God daily for your heartfelt concern.
Until next time…much love to you all & make every day count!!
