Hello my friends, I need you all again. I went for a routine mammography on Tuesday and my doctor called me today that they found something and I have to go for a sonogram and biopsy on Monday. Oh god how could this be happening? My children just lost their father and now I may be sick, how much more could they take. This cant happen. Frankie never wanted me far from him and I am so scared he wants me with him. I have no one to take care of my kids I really cant do this. Please pray for me that there is nothing there and this is a mistake! It has to be this cant happen. Monday will also be 10 months that Frankie is gone I cant handle anymore bad news on that date. I am at th end of my rope I really cant take anymore. How do I get through this weekend?
Thank you Sheryl, I hope so.

I am sorry Renee. I am sure you are worried. I had the same thing happen to me - abnormal mamm then they scheduled an ultrasound and consult with the surgeon. This was just a few months after Dave died and then the did a few skin biopsies and found skin cancer too! It was very scary but the ultrasound showed it was a cyst and the surgeon drained it right in his office. The dermatolgist did an incision and removed the skin cancer right in his office - all of that happened three months after Dave died... I hope that your situation will be just a cyst too - I will be praying for you!
Dear Renee, I am so sorry to hear this. I do agree with Sheryl though, so many times these findings are benign or a cyst but hard to see the difference unless they do a biopsy. It is hard to not unduly worry though, until the test results, but I will pray that you will be definitely okay! As for your husband, I think he knows that your family needs you so much and while I am sure he wants you with him, he will be willing to wait. Do you know that time in heaven is meaningless, years are merely seconds, and even if it is 20 years away, here on earth, in heaven, Frank will be seeing you as though it was just seconds on the kitchen clock.
My thoughts and prayers are with you Renee. Please let us know the outcome and do hang in there.
