Butterflies Are Free!!!!!


The lump is not malignant! There are suspicious cells there, and it is close to the sternum....so, I will have to do three weeks of radiation....but I can do this!!!!

Just for a little history...I have had three lumps removed before...all have been malignant...but no lymph node involvement, no surrounding tissue problems. I have done radiation, and chemo therapy all three times. I always said that if this came back ever again....it would be radical mastectomy time for me! And my doctor...who is fantastic....agreed. So, when I found this lump...I was terrified that this was it. Top that with the fact that this has been a year of "drama" for me....and I really had an impending sense of doom.

Thanks to all my loved ones, and friends....I kept the positive thoughts on top. And thank the good Lord....everything will be alright. I think this time was almost harder on my husband than on me. He hasn't been sleeping, and has had a "knot" in his stomach since the lump was found last Wednesday. As for me....once I got the news today....I realized that I have been holding my breath...and all of a sudden it was easier to breathe.

To all of you who have walked through this with me a heartfelt THANK YOU!!! You have meant more to me than you could ever realize. Your thoughts, and comments....made me smile...laugh...and cry! But most of all, they just made me feel good inside that you people...who care so deeply....cared for me! Thank you.....from the bottom of my heart!

Fantasylover.....prepare to de-pants!!!!!! Blogland.....watch out!

A little bird on wings all aflutter, as once again he flew
he beamed his smile of happiness and joy at you.
Sweet and restful dreams for you, with fears no longer there
you are always here, with our loves, our hope and care.

I am so happy for you, my dear sweet one,
Your ordeal is nearly done.
An extra special hug, with a kiss, oh so tender
is sent for you to remember.

Special memo just now in

Just got an IM from Serendipity, her dad just lost his left leg and is in hospital in real bad shape. She really needs all the prayers she can get.
