My appointment went well. I still don't have a definitive answer as to what this thing is but the surgeon used the word cyst. And I tell you, I don't know that I have heard a more beautiful word in a very long time. I have an appointment to go back next Monday to have it removed and he is going to send it off for a full pathology report - and let me stop there to ask, why do people say a full pathology report? Shouldn't a pathology report alone be the full pathology report? Anyway.....after he gets the results from that, which he is confident are going to prove that this is nothing more than a cyst, he wants me to have a follow up mammogram in 6 months before he will fully release me. And I am completely ok with that. I felt so much love today from so many women. My sweet, sweet friend Shannon way up in Pennsylvania who adorns my dear Eliza with all her bows. A wonderful friend named Carol in the UK. A lovely friend named Rebecca who sat at dinner last night with her family and prayed for me. And there's a woman down in Texas who likes her bows as big as I do that I know she has been praying for me. Each of you have just helped my faith to grow a little deeper and a little stronger. You each inspire me to be better. Thank you.
And another praise - Eliza is feeling much better today and her cough is subsiding.
As my friend Glennon said when I told her the news:
"and all God's children said AAAAAMEN!"
