Rough Draft

Today I had the surgery to remove the spots.

The Dr felt that they were probably Melanoma. When he removed the spots they were black underneath. Not good.

He sent them off to the pathologist and we should have the official results next Tuesday or Wednesday.

I already have an appt with my oncologist scheduled for next Thursday. Obviously, my treatment plan will have to change.

I'm pretty pissed right now. But I won't go into that. For now, I am going to go enjoy every precious second with my beautiful family.

Heather--stay strong, and know that you have lots and lots of people who love you and are praying for you and your family. Please don't hesitate to ask for help with anything you need.

Take the next few days and enjoy them with your family (you'll be snowed in anyways) and put your faith in God...he works in miraculous ways.

Love you!

Hope said...

That is not the news I was hoping for. I'm sorry you have to deal with this. I'm sure your oncologist will have a plan. If you want to talk, I'm always here.

Praying!
Hope

Oh my gosh, Heather, I don't know whether I'm more upset or sad or angry for you. I don't understand. You've been on chemo for what. . .7 months now?? I will be praying that everything turns out fine.

Dear Heather,

I have been reading your blog for a while now. My sister is Manda from (littleturds.blogspot). She introduced me to you.

I wanted you to know that we are thinking a praying for you. I know how scary this is for you and your family. Stay strong and positive. Treatments are hell but they are worth every moment. Not only are you doing everything possible to beat this disease but you are showing your family how much you want to be there for them - whatever it takes, you are willing to do. Don't get discouraged.

I hate cancer.

I am praying you will get good results and KNOW exactly what treatment to do.

With love,
Dawn Hall

You can still do this! You can kick cancer's ass!

I know you are pissed and have every right to be! I was praying and hoping for better news but fingers will be crossed that the official results will come back differently.

Man I can't stop thinking about you. I was even telling my friend about you today and how you can't seem to catch a break.

One of our friends that is 29 just found out she has breast cancer.

My heart is heavy, too many people I know have and are being affected by cancer.

We are always praying for you.

Enjoy your family and stay strong. I will be praying for you non stop. Let's just stay postive and know that it might not be anything. FINGERS CROSSED!

Dear Heather,

Sorry to hear about your problems---we're praying as hard as we can that everything turns out the way we want it. Your Aunt Lotta said to tell you that you just have to stay on top of it---not to ignore any sign that you don't know what it is. Can't remember exactly how many times she has had a place removed. The pills now seem to have stopped it for now.

You've got your great family----that helps. Keep busy---with anything that sounds interesting. Have you started that quilt yet? Or Kyler's t-shirt quilt? I finished Valerie's this week---now trying to find wide quilt backing in a green that will match the green of the sashings & border. I'm going to take it to a lady near Perry that has quilted t-shirt quilts. I just need to find a color besides what I got the other day---a beige color, but don't really want it.

We are thinking of you---hang in there---you're tough!!

Love ya,

G'ma & G'pa
