Biopsies Scheduled

I just wanted ya'll to know that both my biopsies have been scheduled. They called me last week and set things up for of all days, Friday February 13th, lol.

The doctor/radiologist said on Tuesday she was concerned because one looked just like the first one they found in 2006 (clustered calcification's) and the other larger one (closer to the lymph nods) was jagged. I'm not happy about all this, but I'm alright. I am confident, scared, and slapped silly all at once. If this is cancer, then it is a new one, not the same. (I'm guessing here. It makes me feel better to think of it in that light.) My chances seem really good. Beat it once,beat it twice right? Yep. that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

My week is insane. I have IVIG on Monday, a doctors' appointment on both Tuesday and Wednesday, a lump extraction and biopsy ( my head again) on Thursday and then my breast biopsies on Friday. Plus the boys are off from school both Friday and Monday and Micah is still battling this Mono. He is just feeling awful, but he does go back to school Monday.

When it comes down to it, I'm no quitter! I still have my boxing gloves on and I'm ready to beat this beast back if need be.. This is just another hurdle right? I know without a doubt I am in God's hands. What better place to be?

  8. Christina,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. It's rare that I'm ever at a loss for words, but I've no idea what it would feel like to be going through this again; so, I have no idea what to say to you.
    No one has to tell you how strong you are - you know.

    Faith, family and what appears to be a few thousand friends cheering you on will carry you through. That's what they tell me anyway. Of course, I'm thinking that curled up in the corner of my basement is another way to go. But that's just me. I'm a big sissy. You aren't.

    You are going through this right now and you mentioned me in your blog? Thank you a million times. You are an amazing woman with a huge heart.

    Bless you, Christina.


  9. You have a beautiful family. I can see why you've made the choice to take this on with grit and fired up determination! You go girl! Praying that God will touch you and give you strength during this time!

  11. and you have some of the best prayer warriors on your side!! US!
