Breast Cancer?! How did I get here? Well let’s go back about a month. On a chilly February 19th, I hopped out of my shower and quickly and aggressively was lotioning myself when I felt a lump in my right upper breast. WHAT?! Imagine my surprise. So I quick emailed my OB/GYN hoping she would see it before I had a chance to call during my specials break the next day. She did, at 8:20am she said she wanted me to come in ASAP at 9:15. She quickly set me up with a 3D mammogram and ultrasound for Feb 27th. At the end of that appointment, I met with the radiologist who said she wanted me to have it biopsied because she thought it could be cancer. Naturally, I cried. The wonderful tech was in the room too and asked if she could pray for me. YES OF COURSE!!! So next up was the biopsy. It was originally scheduled for Friday 3/6 with the results read 3/10. Well through the grace of GOD, I was able to unexpectedly be seen on 3/3 and results to be given 3/6. Once again, God made it possible that I could be seen on 3/5 in the afternoon. As I sat in the parking lot waiting for Adam, I just sat and prayed. I prayed that if this was the walk God wanted me to walk, that I would do so in a way that would Glorify Him and with my head held high. So Adam and I sat down and heard the words "it came back cancer." Whew, I looked at her and asked her to repeat what she said. It didn't change, "cancer" Lots of tears but lots of hope. Yes, it's cancer, yes it'll be a journey BUT very treatable! I remember walking out saying to Adam, did this just happen? Sure did but guess what? Not once did I feel angry, confused, or questioned this path. That weekend I attended our Women's Conference at church and it spoke to my heart! I feel confident that God has us in His hands and I know I will be just fine! I am ready for this journey!!!
