This is a Facebook post I made on April 19, 2014………
“Some of you may know that on February 27th, 2014 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was truly in awe of Gods plans as he had just blessed Aaron with an onshore job in Houston and we moved to Katy a few days before Christmas. Once I found out, I saw that Gods hand was on us and He had already put us in the exact place we needed to be to get the best care at MD Anderson Cancer Center. I felt truly grateful and I saw that since God was in charge that I could do anything.
I went for a bi lateral mastectomy April 15th after much prayer and they ended up finding out the cancer had spread into the lymph nodes and they are currently doing tests to see if we have to do further treatment. Once I have those results I will continue with reconstruction.
I came home from the hospital on Thursday April 17th, my beautiful husbands birthday…….after settling in, about 5 minutes later I received a call from my sister Julie saying my mama had finally found peace after a long struggle with cancer.
She was my mama until the end, waiting until my surgery was over and making sure I got home okay until she finally let go so she could finally have peace.
I go for my follow up appointments on Monday, at which point I should be cleared to travel to Canada so I can be at my mamas funeral. Please pray for my travels, for my brother Danny and sister Julie and their families and for my results to come back that I need no further treatment for the cancer.
I have had so many friends and loved ones and prayer warriors praying and I can tell you that I have felt Gods perfect peace in the midst of this storm. I feel Gods love and His strength and I am so humbled and thankful for all of you that have lifted up my family, my mama and me during all of this.
I will not stop praising God in this storm because without Him I know I could not get through it, however with God all things are possible and I am thankful for such a loving and powerful God. I am also so thankful for my husband, my boys, my family and all of my loving friends……you have made this all so much easier…..true story. “
Reading that again made me cry, remembering all I went through in such a short amount of time and how I got through it with prayer and Gods steady hand on me.
