Here’s in update on my Grandma’s breast cancer –
In August, on my 22nd birthday she broke the news to us at lunch that after routine mammogram, she was called back for a second one to get a clearer look.
Since then she has underwent a biopsy which was a wire that was placed in her left breast to use during the surgery at the removal of the lump. Later, the lump was sent away to be read by the pathologist, we then found out that the lump was cancerous and they had also found two cancerous cells somewhere in her lymph nodes.
This was “surgery” three, she was filled with dyes to detect the cancerous cells, then put under so they could remove them under her left underarm. She was told if they had to remove more than two she would have to stay the night. They only found two. These cells were then sent to another pathologist.
Later, they decided to send the tissue to another pathologist in California for further testing. This was to indicate if she would only need radiation.
Yesterday my grandma received word that her vitamin D levels were very low. She is now on strong medicine to get her levels back up. She will be going to a breast cancer doctor in Indianapolis sometime this month to see if her bones are healthy enough for her to start chemo. Yes, chemo.
I believe my God has the power to heal and I’m Faithful in the fact that she will be back to herself here soon. She will turn 66 on January 24th, she’s still has lots of energy!
Last year she move back for Florida after 24 years and recently got divorced from my grandpa. It’s been a big year of events, especially to now learn that she is battling cancer. I’m optimistic that God moved her here at the right time so my mom and aunt and all the grandkids can be here to support her. I also hope she realizes how much she’s loved and that we will be there with her through this whole process!
One thing’s for sure, she’s a strong woman of God and I’m lucky to call her my grandma. I also guarantee that on July 12 she will be out on the dance floor at my wedding if God allows.
Thank you for all the kind words and all the prayers. They don’t ever go unnoticed or unfelt. I’m grateful to have a strong support system, you guys are amazing and quite the blessing yourselves!
With Love, Jillian Lane
