This week has been a little rough. I often hesitate to write about the small things that are happening in our family's world when I read people's blogs about serious problems. Life-threatening, gut-wrenching, down on your knees, flat on your face issues. I recognize that our needs are small.
Tomorrow I am heading over to have a "breast sono". I'm down with the lingo, let me tell ya. This hilarious lady that was scheduling my appointment said "Girl, you gotta call it the right thing! You're not having an ultrasound of your breast- you're having a 'breast sono'." So a breast sono I will have. After my last mammogram the doctor ordered an MRI because some abnormalities were seen. On the MRI 2 spots were found in my left breast close to my armpit. They're going to get a closer look tomorrow. I'm a bit worried about the appointment as they said it will last about an hour. I'm not sure I will be able to be still for an hour. I have a pinched nerve in my back that is causing pretty severe pain and crazy tingling and numbness in my right upper leg. It probably sounds like I am more worried about being in pain during the test than the actual test itself and/or the results of the test. I guess that's true. When I got the call telling me about the spots, or should I say abnormal findings on left breast at 2:00 position mid to posterior depth, I was pretty upset. And then I started thinking and praying. And I felt better. I see God's hand in my life in every way. Every day. And I trust Him. Thankfully, I feel very peaceful about this entire situation. I'm not saying that I have some pie-in-the-sky confidence that everything is fine. I just know that whatever happens, my life is in His hands.
My appointment is at 1:00 EST. If you think about it, please say a prayer for me.
