God Bless the workers of St. Mary Hospital who called me at 6:00 pm on a Friday night, to let me know my Biopsy was completely normal and I don't have cancer!
I know, I haven't written about any of this. My own family members who read this are going to be pretty surprised I guess. I purposely choose to make this blog my "Happy Place". Negativity is not invited here. BUT, since this the BEST NEWS I've heard in a long time, I have to share!
If you've read my last few posts, you know all the gory details of my last mammogram. Well, thank God I had it done, because they did find something, requiring me to have a second mammo and then a Biopsy, which I just had 3 days ago. The past 2 weeks have been filled with tears, worry, fear, and exhaustion. Then, the one phone call put it all to rest.
This past year, my family has been through two major ordeals. I purposely chose not to add to their anxiety by telling them about this. Keeping it to myself was a high price to pay though. The constant "thinking" was draining me. I couldn't turn my mind off. Then the hospital called and said, "Jill, you're FINE!" Next to hearing my babies' first cries, I don't know if I ever heard such a beautiful sound!
To the few I confided in, thank you so much for your words of encouragement and prayers. I'm a firm believer in the power of prayer and know God heard them! And thank you GOD for showing Your mercy on me and hearing the cries of a mother desperately wanting to live if for no other reason, than to raise her children.
