Something to hold on to...

Great News

I have not mentioned this yet on this blog because I was trying to protect my boys, but today I received some great news. I don't know how much you know about my cancer. Medullary Thyroid Cancer actually has 4 sub-types, three of those types can be hereditary. Because I have children, I had to be tested to see if I carry the mutated gene that is responsible for those three types. It took 2 long weeks to get the results back from my blood test.

I DO NOT carry this gene.

I have the sporadic type which occurs in 80 % of medullary cancers. There are no words to express how grateful I am of that news. God has just heard groaning of thanksgiving because I don't have the right words to use to thank Him. We deal with things differently when they are just about us, but when it threatens your kids it is a whole different story.

I have had a week of good news in a summer of one bad thing after another. I needed this. Now I can concentrate my thoughts on mentally preparing for my surgery.

Say a prayer of thanksgiving with me tonight, okay?
