Oh my....I don't know what to say! I am so overwhelmed at all the love and support from "friends" I didn't realize that I even had! You people are truly remarkable and I thank God for each and every one of you!
And to noplacelikeWA
... it is so awesome to know that a family (who doesn't even know me) would walk in a benefit with my name posted on their back!!! You cannot imagine what that means to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
There have been so many people, churches, and organizations that have prayed for me the last few months and it just amazes me how the Lord can reach all these people in such a short time. He is God, and there is no doubt about the miraculous things he can do. I have been blessed with one good report after another one and I know it is because of the power of prayer.
Friday will be 3 weeks since my surgery and I am progressing well. My surgeon did an awesome job on the double mastectomy (got ALL the cancer!!!) and my plastic surgeon is doing a great job with the reconstruction process. I still have one more surgery to go probably in June to finish the reconstruction but it will be here and gone before I know it.
I got out of the house for the first time by myself yesterday, and drove a short distance to have lunch with my mom...get medicine filled, etc.....and I went to the bank and bought a house! lol.......Found one I wanted over the weekend, and started the paperwork on it yesterday. My husband and I fell in love with it, so the good Lord blessed us again! Don't know how I'll pack any boxes....but I am sure I will manage!
I want to thank my wonderful friend Sarah aka... I Love North Carolina
, for starting this thread for me. I love you and thank the Lord for bringing us together on this forum. And again to the family noplacelikeWA
for thinking of me and walking for me. We need more people in the world like you all and I am forever grateful for all your love and support. Breast Cancer is a very devestating illness.....and I encourage anyone who is of age and has not went for their first mammogram to do so. I only went because my employer offered it free through their wellness program...and because I will be 40 in July. The doctors say, had I not went....it would have never showed up until it would have been too late...because it was tooo deep and couldn't be felt. Some of you probably wonder why I had the double mastecomy since it was only in one breast, it was because I am a 20 year cancer survivor of Hodgkin's Disease....and it was MY choice. I didn't want to take any chances. I wanted it OUT OF THERE...TO NEVER RETURN!
Anyway....May God continue to bless each and every one of you and your families. And know how much I love and appreciate each and every one of you. GOD is good, ALL the time!!!!
