Today I was diagnosed with Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma another name for breast cancer. I am 30 years old with 3 children the youngest not a year. I had been waiting on the results since last Friday and got the call at 12:15pm from the clinic to come in at 1:30pm. I hung up the phone and quickly called my husband as he was an hour away in Hiawatha working. My in laws were eating at Nelson's Landing and they rushed over here too.
On our drive to the clinicI kept telling Brian that god was preparing me for this news. I believe these are not coincidences but message from god. The 1st one was 3-4 months ago when my mom was having an ultrasound on her breast (luckily it is nothing!) however I told her she shouldn't hide that kind of information from us girls because one of us could have cancer! The second one is that my mother in law every year for the past 6 years has purchased a yearly calendar for me and this year is the only year that I have received that is dedicated to breast cancer. So we were talking about this and we pull up to park and the car in front of us has a breast cancer license plate. I know that God is here with me and will guide me through this journey and I love how he sends me messages. So yesterday diagnosis day was 1-11-11 so I am praying that this is another message and that I only have stage 1 breast cancer. We won't find out anything until I have surgery next week.
