Sunday, the day full of so much: a day of rest, a day dedicated to family, a day dedicated to God, a day to renew our bodies, a day before school starts.(Sorry, I couldn't resist that last one). I sit here on the couch, the house is quiet. The dog and I are just hanging out together and I have been reflecting on this past week.
A week ago I was full of fear and and shock, Today, I am at peace..That is the peace that comes with God's grace and the knowledge..A dear friend of mine, suggested I call the Livestrong Foundation and talk to them. I did, those people set me up with a sweet, compassionate lady named, Sharon. An P.A. with extensive knowledge in the different types of Pancreatic cancers. She helped me to understand that there are more than one type of cancer, and IF I have this certain type, it is not a death sentence. She helped to calm my fears and gave me hope and power..The saying," There is Power in Knowledge"is so true. Thank you, Sue and Sharon for those words. Needless to say, I am now a Livestrong supporter, and I am grateful..
This past week, I also learned that I have an incredible support team of friends and family that helped to lift me up these past days. Having one of my sisters drop everything and fly up and be with me was so touching. Kelly went with me to my appts and held my hand, asked the questions I forgot to ask, fed my kids, washed my dog, did my laundry, and even drank some of the nasty prep med for me. YUCK, now that my friends, is dedication. The calls, the letters and the messages from everyone has been beyond humbling. THANK YOU, thank you..
Now, on to the news, After having a tube put down my throat and one up( well never mind, Ibet you get the idea there), my colon was free of any cancer which is great news, Although the Dr said it was the longest intestine he had ever seen in 30 years of work, Figures, I have itty, bitty, short legs and a super long intestine, is there no justice:)? The blood work came back which said the liver looked just fine, more great news..This week is an MRI which will check out the innards( I like that word) to get a better picture of things. I'm hoping they will take a look and say,"Hey old lady, what are you doing here? There isn't a damn thing wrong with you. Now, get outta here before we call security"...Geesh, some people can get so huffy.
Well, for now that's all I got. Thanks for listening to me babble on..Hope you have a great Sunday. Remember one thing, :"bottoms up" doesn't always mean drink up. Eeeewwwwwwww.....
