Really?



Really. I have breast cancer. Wow, that was hard to write. I found out today. I had found something while taking a shower. The mammogram and ultrasound indicated I needed a core biopsy. The doctor called with the results. Infiltrating mammary carcinoma with medullary features. Great. I see the oncologist on Wednesday. I have a history of breast cancer in my family. I guess I need to start doing some research on options. I have put my two Etsy shops on vacation until I see how this shakes out. Keep me and my family in your prayers, ok?

Oh, criminy, Merry. I didn't know. I'm so sorry that you are facing this. I hope my prayers get to you as fast as I'm sending them. There are so many advances in treatment, that I'm sure you will be okay. But I will keep sending you positive thoughts and love to keep you strong and upbeat. Love to you...

Stopped by from Lin's blog. Prayers coming your way. My favorite saying is "A stranger is a friend you haven't met yet." That's how I came to know Lin. We're all walking this journey with you.

First time visitor to your blog here. I just had to come to wish you the best when I read about your cancer situation on Lin's blog. I just found out I had it last summer and remember how in shock I was when I first got the news. Hopefully, you will be fine like I am now. My heart goes out to you because I know it's kind of scary and all the doctor stuff is a hassle. Wishing you the best!

Thank you everyone for your good thoughts. I appreciate you taking the time to come over and leave a message. Isn't the blogging world wonderful?

Lin said...

Yes. Yes it is, Merry.

Hi Merry,

I was there myself three years ago. I'm doing much better now, thank you very much.

I hope you have a great support group. If not let me know and I'll give you some places I found.

I did both chemo and radiation. Lumpectomy for me. I still go to cancer support group meetings now and then. Helping those that came after me.

Hang in there. I wish you the best.

Hugs, Euphoria
