I'm officially a Pink Ribbon Lady now....

yep, the results are in. I have breast cancer. still trying to process the news.....get my head wrapped around all that now lies before us. thankfully the dr.s are moving at a very fast pace and are just as kind as can possibly be. I see the surgeon on Monday, so we'll go from there.

Tyler is coming home this weekend again. It will be wonderful to see him and spend some time together. goodness gracious me, was it ever hard telling the guys the news. but they are being so wonderful about everything. my SIL, Susan, cracks me up with her reaction. raising my shot of tequila to ya, Sue! ;)

I'll craft as I am able and post whatever I make. I hope y'all can understand why I'm just not up to it right now, plus still so very very tired. my dr. said that is to be expected. and boy does this explain why I've felt so poopy for so long. so we can only go up from here, right?! ;)

The sun is shining so gloriously right now. it makes me smile. :)
love to each of you, just for being YOU!

Sorry to hear that the diagnosis was not good news Jennifer, I will be thinking of you as you take the steps towards recovery and know that you will be fighting as hard as you possibly can. My sister had breast cancer in her late 30s but has been cancer free for nearly 10 years now - it can be beaten and I wish the very best outcome for you.

You have always been a pink lady but a much different kind. This is not the happiest thing you have posted but you have a wonderful family and a positive attitude and that will carry you through with flying colours, I am sure. I, along with all of your blog friends will be keeping good thoughts for you. I am happy that the medical community is acting quickly and knowing what I do know about you - you will come out on top.
Big soft hugs!

I hope you know what a testimony you are giving to us all with your unwavering faith. I only hope I can be this strong and steadfast if faced with such an situation. My mother had breast cancer in 93 and she is still going strong and cancer free. I'll be praying that your fast acting doctors will have God's hand guiding them. Hugs and prayers winging their way to you sweetie! :-)

ThePurplePlace said...

Dear Jenn,
My heart goes out to you and I can only imagine all the feelings you must be going through right now. Please know that I'll be thinking of you and saying extra prayers for you to beat this!

As the daughter and best-friend to two breast cancer survivors, I know very well that hearing this news is very hard and upsetting, but I also know that you can beat time and be much like my Mom and friend, Kim who now are both Survivors. My Mom for just over 5 years and Kim will be at 10 years in October. She has been blessed to also go on to have a second child since her diagnosis and her surgery and she was a new Mom of a two year year old, when she was diagnosed, on her very first Mammogram.

I'm saying lots of prayers and WISH so much that someone as sweet and kind as you are, did not have to go through this awful experience.

If you ever need to talk, laugh, cry, scream or yell...you can reach out to me!!

Hugs,
Lisa
