Distressing News

This morning I received a phone call from my family member in the Northwest to let me know that she has breast cancer. She has chosen, given her age, to have the affected breast removed rather than have the lengthy, and daily(?), radiation treatments. While optimistic, one never knows the outcome of these things in the early days. Yet to be known is if the cancer has traveled to the lymph nodes or elsewhere. The nasty intruder is said to be the size of a nickel. Isn't that pretty large? It wasn't discovered in the last mammogram she had two years ago. Perhaps this would be a good time to stress keeping your annual mammogram appointments!

There is no update on the kitty's health issue. I stopped at the vet's this morning, but Mrs. Vet wasn't in today so will get kitty there tomorrow for an exam and to discuss if there are any options to keep her with us. This is not a good time for this to be happening as the near-teenager will be a teenager on Saturday and it would be an awful dampener of his special day.

Much prayer is needed, and requested. Thank you ever so much. The Lord knows the lady and her needs.
