    I guess life always has to throw us curve balls to keep us on our toes.  For the last week or so I have been flying high because things seemed to have been turning around... Got a job, my FI and my family absolutely enjoyed one another and genuinely liked one another. Had a great bday weekend in Dallas a few days ago, and then today got the worst news ever.  My third sister (my mom has five girls) just found out today that she has breast cancer, it has progressed a great deal.  They have scheduled an emergency biopsy on Thursday (which was the first available slot) and when they get the results back it will be surgery and treatment.  This is all happening so quickly. My sister sounded so dejected and down. I didnt know what to say to her.  I wonder how would I feel if I had gotten that diagnosis.  She is only 40 years old.  I know this is going to be very difficult for my family but most of all for my mother. Only God knows the future and he knows how this is all going to turn out in the end. We can only pray that it turns out for the best.  We lost a very close family friend two years ago to liver cancer, she was diagnosed at the end of December and was dead three months later. It was a very difficult time for all of us, especially her family.  Saw how the treatments brought her too, how her life became and at the end it was, even though we didn't want it to be so, a relief to see her go because none of us wanted to see her go through the pain and agony we knew she was experiencing.  


    These things are very difficult. Thanks for listening guys.  Prayer moves mountains!

      I'm so sorry to hear about your sister's health. It will be a difficult time for you and your family and I pray that she will be okay. I know several breast cancer survivors who have been in remission for many years and you wouldn't ever know what they've been through. Be strong and feel free to share here.


      Sending E-hugs your way!

        I am sorry to hear about this.  The best thing to do is to give her support.  A friend of mine has been fight Cancer for the last 6 years.  It has been up and down struggle for her but I told her no matter what is going on with me I will be there for her.  It is sad but what is need the most is support.

            Thanks for your kind words ladies. Right now we are playing the waiting game, but she will be having surgery very soon, either next week or the following. The doctors are waiting for results from her biopsy.

                  Hey everyone sorry I have been MIA. It has been confirmed that my sister does have an aggressive form of breast cancer. She has a very large lump in one of her breasts.  In about two weeks she will be having a mastectomy and then six weeks of daily radiation.  


                  Wedding plans are on hold for now because our family are concentrating on her for the moment.  So if you ladies don't see me around, don't worry, I will be back one day soon.


                  Much love and good luck and congrats to all of you ladies you are married while I am gone!
