This morning I had a liver scan [ultra sound]. The official pathology report will not be available to me for 5 days. However, the technician [unofficially] said that she could find nothing irregular in the images of the liver. So, I think I am OK there.
Thank you, dear friends who write to me via comments on this blog. I will not publish/post any comments that have personal health histories contained within. However, I heartily thank you who write to me, assuring me that I am not alone!
I received permission from my cousin, Teresa Miriam Van Hoy, to publish this link to her story: “Life After Mastectomy: A Survivor’s Story.” http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,301741,00.html Or, you can Google, “Teresa Van Hoy” and find the Fox News articles. Then, after you read the articles, you will know why she is my hero.
A friend wrote a comment on this blog, which encouraged me greatly. Here, I excerpt it: “Bill shared with me several days ago he is praying that God give you the same courage He gave your father while flying over Germany during WWII.” When Stephen read that comment aloud to me, we both wept.
Yes, dear family and friends, continue to pray for courage for me! And, also, specifically, pray that there would be no complications with the surgery. I am especially concerned about the removal of lymph nodes, as I do not want lymphedema.
