Quick Update....


All is well. I tell you what....surgery is tough. I've pretty much just slept for the past few days. Of course, I could be making up for the 9 months Ella hasn't let me sleep! The pain is getting better everyday. I'm just taking muscle relaxers now. The muscle spasms can be pretty intense so the meds help so much. I'm pretty foggy in the head so I apologize if the words don't come out right. By the way, the bear in the picture was a gift from the hospital. You use it when you wear your seat belt to prevent the belt from rubbing on you. Cute!!!


We got the final report from the doctor yesterday. There was absolutely no sign of cancer in the lymph nodes or the right breast. My tumor graded a 9 on a scale of 3 to 9. That just means it was a very aggressive tumor which we caught early. We are still waiting on one test which we should have Tuesday. So, right now if I understand correctly my cancer was caught in the early stages and I think it is stage 1 or 2. I will clarify at my appointment on Tuesday. Regardless, it is all a good report but I will have some intense chemo because of the tumor grade. We will find out about my treatment plan when we visit the oncologist on October 31st.


Thank you for your continued prayers and words of encouragement. We are ready for visitors for all you locals. Just call before you come and be ready to play!

Lisa, I'm so glad things are going well for you. Well, as well as can be expected after having major surgery. Your situation just touched me so much that I actually put you on our church's e-mail prayer list, along with your blog address.
I found out about you through Candice's blog. (no, I'm not a friend of her's just a blog lurker.)

Praise God! I'm so happy to hear the good report. I can't wait to check back next week and hear more good news. Take it easy- and let others help you for a while. Before you know it, you'll be back to doing it all! ;)

Lisa,
You still have the smile that can light up a world, and what a beautiful baby girl! You look like a cup running over with joy.

I'm so glad you are okay. I thank God for your quick mind and action and for you doctor's curiosity. That you caught this early is more than enough of a miracle for me!
Thank you for writing this blog and sharing your pictures. It is so reassuring to be able to look at you-- holding more than one baby, as usual!

I'll be with you in heart and in prayer tomorrow as you find out your test results. My mom asks about you--she's praying for you, too, and for your family. You are all precious and loved.

Keep standing,
Your friend,
Kimberly S.
