Good Morning, All!!!
I find myself at a crossroads, once again. I would very much appreciate your prayers and your input.
Yesterday I marked my one year anniversary from my diagnosis. I was able to "celebrate" this occasion by visiting my surgeon for my fourth, three-month check-up. I almost wish I had not gone as he found s lump (or something) on the side of my right breast. NOW I have to have my mammogram about 5 weeks early and also have an ultrasound on the brest. Because of "my history" the doctor isn't taking anything for granted. I guess that's good, but the waiting time until I can have the tests is really unnerving, Anyway, I am trying to kep busy so that I know that the time will go by quickly. At any rate, I would like your prayers that this turns out to be absolutely nothing....or at the very least something that is easily taken care of.
Now, for the other part of my request. I have a very dear friend, Shirley, who found out just before Christmas that she has bone cancer. I have been writing to her daily trying to encourage her, but she has got such a poor attitude that I am afraid that nothing will be able to pull her out of it. I would appreciate it if you could remember her and her family in your prayers. She is like another mother to my husband and myself.....and many others. She wants to see her grandchildren finish growing up and graduate from high school, but she refuses to listen to the positive side of what she is being told. Her son and his family live here in the same town as we do......he was our best man when we got married 20+ years ago!!! Anyway, I am rambling on, so I will stop. I would appreicate your prayers for Shirley and her husband, Dick, and their children and grandchildren. Also, ANY suggestions that you can pass along to me as to how I can try to get her to lighten up would be greatly appreciated. I have run out of ideas and feel like I am just repeating myself.
Thanks you in advance for your help and your prayers. They are truly appreciated. I hope that you all have a great day!!!
Love, hugs, and blessings........
