My Breast Cancer journey, this time, began in July 2016 with a mastectomy followed by chemotherapy. I'm looking forward to the DIEP Flap Surgery on March 2nd to begin my final phase of healing and recovery. God has truly surrounded me with His love, His deep abiding peace that has saturated my heart dispersing anxiety, while formulating a team specifically for me with His heavenly angels and His earthly angels, I call family and friends. From the moment He guided my detection of the cancer I knew He had a plan. I was quickly led to Siteman by my husband's employer and from there my health plan was in motion like clock work. Recovery from the double mastectomy afforded me to return to work in a few weeks and to begin chemotherapy. By His grace, and the support of my co-workers, family, and friends I was able to stay afloat and press on until the end of treatment in December. God has a plan for each of us and the only thing He requires from us is to relax and be held in His powerful hands, and enjoy the journey, whatever it may be. Often times our journey would not be one we have chosen or envisioned, but nevertheless, it is the journey He has selected for us. Since He doesn't make any mistakes we simply trust Him completely and His plan for our lives. He has guarded me from infection during this cold and flu season and I pray that he will hold me close as I heal and recover from this surgery. I'm so thankful for everyone that he has spefically placed in my path; my nurse friends, my family, and friends. I thank you for your prayers and numerous acts of kindness and encouragement during this time. May God truly bless you in your trials and life journey! I love you! I am awesomely blessed!
