When I was at the surgeon's office yesterday....there was a lady sitting across from me.  She glanced at me and asked if I was ok.....I was in pain and it must have showed.  I told her that I was ok.....just sore.....and hurting even with pain meds.

She proceeded to tell me her story....about how she had survived colon cancer....and had just had her gall bladder removed the week before.  Here I was wallowing in self pity, because my mediport was really hurting and I thought it might be infected.  She was showing me all the places she had one.....they had to move it so many times because she would get a blood clot....or it would become infected.  Suddenly....I didn't feel so bad!  Here this lady sat......with the biggest smile on her face.......and such a POSITIVE attitude.....while I sat there and fought off my pain.

When I was leaving.....she was leaving at the same time.   I stopped her in the hallway and told her to take care and thanked her for being there and helping me deal with all of this.

She hugged me......and as she was hugging me.....she said a prayer for me for God's healing.  She told me that she felt in her heart I would beat this......with God's helping hand guiding my Dr.'s every step of the way.

I can't even explain to you how I felt when she let go of me.......it was like all her warmth and attitude had been passed over to me.  I knew in my heart at that moment.......I was gonna be just fine.

I truly believe God sends angels to watch over us........and he places them where they need to be on a particular day and time!!!

I'm so thankful he placed her there yesterday........

Dear Lord, please be with all our sisters here and around the world fighting the good fight against this disease. Be with those who are recently diagnosed, going through tests, working through decisions about medical treatment, going through treatment, dealing with SEs, suffering from insomnia, recovering from everything; help those in need of financial support, those struggling to help other people understand their journey, and so much more. Be with every woman (and man) as they work to feel better day by day. You are a gracious God and are always there for us with your love and mercy.

In Jesus name we pray

Thank you, everyone. To say I am scared silly is a huge understatement, but I know you can understand that. I continue to trust in Him and pray for all of us. While I wish we didn't connect in this way, I'm eternally grateful for each of you. Onward, one step at a time.

Thank you for your prayers. She is someone from church who had her first round of bc many years before I was diagnosed. She has lost her husband now and was pretty shook up when she had recurrence. She is now in a nursing home and it does not sound like she can pull through but she still wanted to try chemo to see if she could hang in for a bit. Doctors are not very hopeful.
