Throughout my entire life, I have been an extremely healthy person. Very active and fit. No broken bones. Only major surgeries have been that of my children’s’ deliveries. And I guess I earn a few more points from getting my wisdom teeth removed in my late twenties. But low and behold I developed an itch that made me feel a lump that led the doctors to image and biopsy my right breast discover that I have 6 cm of invasive T1b cancer near said lump. Note: Itch subsided just prior to biopsy.
Heavy, right?! If that wasn’t the Holy Spirit, I don’t know what is. Because, dear readers, I am 38 years old and wouldn’t have had a routine mammogram for another two years. And who knows what my tumor would look like and what my prognosis would be…TWO YEARS from now.
Today is the FIRST day in about 3 weeks that I haven’t had any consults to go to, scans or tests to get done. I guess that’s the life of a cancer patient!
