Plot Twist...Going Pink...


You know that moment in movies when the doctor calls and says “Your results are in but you need to come in and talk to me.”? Yeah that moment…it really is just like in the movies! Everything kinda stops..you choke on your own heart and then you sob for a bit. As I walked into the doctor’s office…the receptionist says to me…”Sarah I am so very sorry!”…OMG! Yuppers…just like the movies! PLOT TWIST…you have breast cancer! There it is…the big C. I said it…and well I am gonna beat it. Strong words from someone who feels a bit small and scared at the moment..but I have a wonderful cast of folks to help me be brave. Jim has been beside me from the beginning of this two months.  To be honest, I am not sure if I could have gotten through this without him. There is no doubt his love has gotten me through this and continues to do so. He is my rock. Kate has stepped in to make sure I am covered at work and covered with hugs. My sisters were right there to give strength, love and advice. My daughter Hanna ever confident and unwavering in her belief I will be fine.  Fox and Nonni...there for me on my down chemo days! Thankfully due to new drugs..have been few. Not to mention those who have already stepped in to send their love, prayers and healing my way. Amazingly blessed..I am.
 
I have had my Lumpectomy and lymph nodes removed on the..margins and all lymph nodes were blessedly clear!  I have been on a whirlwind of doctor's appointments and procedures ever since. I am now partway through my chemo...not fun..but will make sure I am clear of any stray cancer cells. I have posted quick posts of Facebook and many of you may have already been aware of my new battle...but I know many here don't FB..and you are important to me..so I am going to try and be consistently posting here.


So please keep me in your prayers as I go through this battle. Thank you and hugs all!
