Last Thursday Liz had a lumpectomy to remove two small tumors from one of her breasts, In addition, she had a “sentinel” lymph node removed for biopsy. One of the tumors had previously tested positive for cancer. The other was so small that it could not be tested. I am happy to report that the sentinel node was clean.
It has been more of a strain than we realized until the procedure was over – a strain on Liz of course but also a strain on me. Now there is an undercurrent of anxiety as we wait a week for the results of the biopsy on the removed tissue.
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble. -- Psalm 46.
Liz and I thank all of you for your prayers and kind thoughts. I also especially thank the MadPriest of High Heaton for linking to this post.
