As alot of you know a few months ago she had a full hysterectomy for Uterine Cancer. She's a strong woman, but she is in her 70's and although she doesnt act her age(or look it) she still has the body of someone older than the 50/60 that she acts. Anyway, today she left for Louisville to go back to the doctor for some tests. These tests will determine if she still has cancer and if she does she will have to have Chemo. She's been fine lately because it's been months since the surgery. She been back to work and happy, but the last few days I've been really upset because I'm afraid they will say they missed a few cells and it's back.I dont want her to go thru Chemo.I know her...if she has to go thru that and lose her hair and stuff she will give up. She feels she's too old to have to mess with Chemo. I just want this to all be over. The pap test caught the cancer early, so maybe she's ok...but I'm still worried. This one stupid test could change all the lives in our family....I dont like this at all. It's just one of thoes things that gives you the helpless feeling we all hate. Her test is susposed to be early Tuesday morning. Please pray that the Cancer is all gone and that she's very healthy! She deserves to be able to live the rest of her life the way she wants. She's worked hard and everyone loves her...It would affect alot of people not just our family...Grrrr I hate Cancer right now. Lyle lost his grandmother to Lung Cancer, and I never thought I'd have to go thru it yet here I am. *sigh* All your prayers got her thru the surgery without problems....so maybe your prayers can help her be Cancer free! She's susposed to be home Tuesday afternoon. As soon as I know the results I'll let you know.
