I have good news, and I have bad news.
First the bad news. The head/mouth/teeth/ear/neck/back pains on the right side still continue. Today they were really bad. In addition, I now have a pain at the top of my left groin that then shoots down my entire leg. My husband said this is probably due to the spinal tap I had yesterday. It should go away. At least it’s not yet another pain to add to my right side.
Now the good news. The preliminary results of all the extra tests done at Mayo showed no cancer in the spine. This is wonderful! Oh I’m so happy!!!!!! The final results won’t come in until next week probably, but for now, I’m dancin’ a little jig!
Also, my BRCA1 test came back. This is basically a genetic test that shows if I might have passed this particular breast cancer gene down to my daughter. It was discovered that I am not a carrier of that particular gene. I am SO RELIEVED about this. I’ve heard (although I could be wrong) that if you are a carrier of the gene, there is an 80 percent chance you would get breast cancer. I would hate to think that I passed something down to my daughter that could cause her so much pain. Not that it’s anyone’s fault, but I would still be filled with guilt. So I’m very happy about this.
Trust in God with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge God; who will make straight your paths.
