Some months ago I went through a bit of a scare, and I didn't write about it on my blog. (I felt bad that I had even told me kids/grandkids (except for Elder Rob). I really didn't want any of them to go through the roller coaster ride with Allan and me, but I knew I wanted the prayers. Without going into a lot of detail, I found a lump. When I went in to see my doctor after he examined me he said, "I can't tell you not to worry". Note to self: Next time find a doctor who'll lie to you ; )
To summarize the whole thing, after several months of waiting (you have to know PATIENCE IS NOT ONE OF MY VIRTUES), and blessings and tears, two mammograms and a couple of ultrasounds, the Breast Cancer Clinic told me, there was nothing to worry about.
At the same time I was going through all of this, I called my former piano teacher just to check in with her and was shocked to find out that about the same time she had also found a lump. I'm sad to say that she has not had the same outcome as I have. She will have her second chemotherapy treatment this week. My prayers are with her. I appreciate so much her positive attitude. I think she is amazing.
My thoughts and prayers are with all the families who face this horrible disease and everything associated with it. I hope and pray that research will lead to a cure.
