Elephant in the room

I sit here today, a day before the 19th anniversary of my mom's death. This is always an emotional time for me, I reflect on her life and the time we spent together and compare our relationship with my relationship with my kids. Well, this year it is even more emotional for me, I have a huge elephant in the room right now! I had my yearly mammogram in December and got a letter last Wednesday that my results needed follow-up and had a follow-up mammogram on Thursday. The radiologist found what he called a fibroid cyst in my right breast and two areas in my left breast that he thought were lymph nodes. My doctor felt that with my mom's history it would be a good idea to do a MRI so we did that on Wednesday. Yesterday my doctor called and said that he felt I needed to have biopsies done on both breasts, the before labled fibroid cyst is now being called suspicious. I am scared, but not worried. As I told Robert last night, I fear the unknown and the consequences that come from the unknown, but I do not worry; I know that my God already knows what is there and the outcome of it all! I do ask for prayers, not for the results, but for peace for me and my family. Thanks!
