Greetings to my dear family and friends! Just a brief summary of the journey that God is asking me to walk. A favorite verse of mine has become more precious through this..."Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." Isaiah 41:10 On July 24th i had a mammogram and ultrasound. I had found 2 lumps on my own which concerned me. On July 26th I had biopsies done. When visiting with the radiologist that day I asked his opinion - he didn't hesitate to say he thought they were 90% chance cancer! On July 31 I got my results back - yes it was cancer - Ductal Carcinoma - Stage 2. They felt it was contained in my one breast, and referred me on to an oncologist in Lewiston, Idaho. First appointment was on August 10. We were disappointed as I met with a retired Dr. who was just filling in! She was hard to understand and didn't feel like i learned alot!! Scheduled a PET/CT scan for August 15. Went back to my oncologist on August 17 for results! Met my main Dr, that day! We were very impressed with him - even though the results he had to give us from the PET/CT scan were not what we wanted to hear! Ductal Carcinoma/HER-2 positive - Stage 4! It has spread to some lymph nodes and my sternum has a few spots! But God was there also with His comfort and love! I feel very blessed with a very loving and supportive husband, children, grandchildren, parents-in-law, siblings, nieces and nephews, church family, and neighbors and friends! I need each of your prayers and love! I know God will lead us through this journey! Love to all - Glenette
