I think most of my readers on this blog know that I fought cancer last year (July/August). It was a tough battle and I faced it with strength taking heart in the fact that the Lord was on my side. If you want to read about this you may go back in my blog and read. I was told that I had a 90% chance to stay in remission.
Sadly I fell in the 10% category and now I am battling cancer again. I was diagnosed a few weeks ago and the surgery is scheduled for September 4th. The cancer this time is in the lymph nodes on the left side of my neck. I will have a 6 week recuperation at home and then begin 35 radiation treatments. One each weekday until they are finished.
I am devastated by this turn of events but I have faith that I will still be holding the hand of the Lord and His will most certainly will be done.
Also at this time, 500 miles away in West Virginia my beloved niece has not recovered consciousness since emergency surgery on August 11th and remains in critical condition. One week ago today my brother-in-law (her dad) was admitted to the hospital. He remains on the 3rd floor of the hospital and my niece remains in ICU on the 2nd floor. I am so sad because I am not well enough to go to WV to be with my sister to comfort her.
I know that we all have battles that we are facing and none of us are really alone.
