The next step has been taken and I met with the surgeon this morning (Tuesday) to see about which lymph node would need to be removed. They are going to remove one under my left arm-pit tomorrow (Wednesday) evening around 5 p.m. This is an outpatient surgery. We can’t be positive what this is right now, but we are aware that it could be a lymphoma-type cancer. I don’t want to write this post without stating the obvious. But I’m trying to just take one step at a time and not let my mind go racing. I’m thankful for college basketball and DVDs because they keep my mind on other things 🙂
Thank you so much for all of your prayers. I definitely have God’s peace in a way that is beyond understanding. And I’m reminded of so many verses that talk about God’s peace and power and strength and help. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand (Isaiah 41:10).
I may not be able to update this blog until later Thursday (unless I can teach my parents to do it . . . ha!) But I will update this blog as soon as I can. Know that you can also receive these updates by checking the blog itself (tandemliving.blogspot.com). The e-mails come out a little delayed sometimes.
Love and blessings!
