I’m Never Alone

Well lots has happened since I Last wrote.  And in the midst of this i am realizing everyday that I am not alone... God has truly been with me every step of the way, and so has my wonderful hubby, Erik.  I can't say this enough but everyone's prayers, emails, cards, phonecalls have been so encouraging.  This too reminds me that I am not alone.
Well, on Friday, September 21, I spoke with Dr. Perry my surgeon.  She told me that the results came back from the BRACA test and it came back negative for the "cancer gene"  PRAISE GOD!!!
I was confident that the results would be negative.  God is so good.
As for the MRI Results, because of my biopsy the area was a little difficult to see, but she said it gives her and idea of the area to do the surgery. but the Right side is free of any suspicious areas. PRAISE GOD!!!!
Dr. Perry  also believes because of the results of the BRACA test,  that a lumpectomy will suffice.  PRAISE GOD!!!
We are looking at doing the surgery at the end of October, early November.
So as you can see I have had some good news recently.  But i am still believing for complete healing. 
However with the lumpectomy i will have to undergo radiation therapy for 5 days a week for 6 weeks. and then take this medicine for 5 years called Tamoxaphen.  the bad part is that Erik and I should not get pregnant while i am taking this medicine.  This is hard news to hear, but i am still confident that My God is Bigger and so much can still happen between now and the time i'm supposed to have surgery.

 5-12 Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
   don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
   he's the one who will keep you on track.
Don't assume that you know it all.
   Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
   your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
   give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
   your wine vats will brim over.
But don't, dear friend, resent God's discipline;
   don't sulk under his loving correction.
It's the child he loves that God corrects;
   a father's delight is behind all this.
