It as been more than a week now waiting to hear back from the pathology of the tumour samples that were taken from me.
The waiting is excruciatingly difficult. This has been one of the most challenging trials of my life.
I am though settling into a place of peace. No one really knows what tomorrow will bring. I have already been living with a cancer diagnosis (well treated, but still there.) Regardless of what comes back, I know that I am in for another surgery and chemo. The only real difference is learning of the the aggressiveness of the cancer. (Or, perhaps, just maybe, a miracle and that these are benign.)
The new treatments--just in the last 10 years--are incredibly advanced. Incredibly advanced. It is amazing what medicine has accomplished. If you think of the incredibly advances in internet technology in just the last generation, it will give you an idea of what has also been happening in medicine.
I am understanding that there is a lesson in all this for me. I am trying to decipher it. I'll keep you all posted on what I discover about this life journey we all share.
I want to thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for the outpouring of love and support I have received. I have been braced up with human connections--like the flying buttresses on Notre Dame Cathedral!
Thank you Merci Muchas Gracias Grazie mille vielen Dank Muito obrigado!
