When it rains, it pours

My mom was told after her last yearly exam that she had several fibroids in her uterus and needed some tests done and possibly a hysterectomy. She got her blood work back today from those tests. They tested for ovarian cancer, and a normal test result is 0-35 hers was a 96. They still do not know for sure that she has ovarian cancer so they have to do the hysterectomy and have it biopsied. Once they get those results back they will know if she needs any other treatment or not.

One of my best friends from home told me she has 2 lumps in one of her breasts and is having a biopsy done on Tuesday.

Today has not been a good day.

So Sorry, Natalie. I also found out that one of my best friends (who is a breast cancer survivor) is having more problems. I'm so scared for her, so I know how you feel about your loved ones.

Love and Prayers,
Betsy

I'm sure it all feels like it is hitting at once!

Keep your chin up and only deal with what you can handle-don't take on the worlds problems. You need to take care of you and your family first; take it one thing at a time and then later you can be superwoman and save the world :-)

Hang in there-I'm praying for you.

Your family and friends will be in my thoughts and prayers. Try not to dwell on the negative (a hard thing to do), but focus on the positive.
