Friday At Last....

  This has been a long week, or so it seems to me. Today is my  mammogram day. I will be happy when it's over. I have a story to tell all of you today.
  In the paper this morning is an article about my neighbor. She died Wednesday night. Only 47 years old. She had survived her breast cancer  . Then  in February, she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She died of a complication related to the first round of chemotherapy for the leukemia. It knocked the wind out of me. I had no idea this was happening. I had seen her driving her car past our house waving and  I thought, thank God she's doing well. She was the assistant principal at one of our area schools. Everyone at the school is in shock.
 So I will go for my mammogram and be thinking of that beautiful young girl.  And I will thank God for my own daughter  Lizzy's survival of breast cancer.

  3. My heart goes out to you, Susie. It's always so sad to hear of someone's passing when they are so young, but this all happened so close to you and you didn't even know. It takes time for a community to recover from this kind of loss. I hope you hear good results on your own tests. God bless you.

  4. Mammograms are so quick and easy now days with the new digital machines. I hope you had that used instead of the older kind. It is always good to be checked out.

  9. I'm sure it must be scarier for you than most considering your daughter is a cancer survivor and the recent death of a neighbour.
    I'll pray it turns out well, Susie.
