Friday At Last....
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.

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.ReplyDelete
I think it's bad enough to lose some one so young...but to think they are getting well and something so rare happen...it's crushing. xo,SusieDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Oh yes, it is quick. I had the same young girl do them . xo,SusieDelete
Oh Susie, that would be a shock! I am so sorry for your community and her family. Praising his name for your Lizzy! Praying for your town as the next week comes to pass. I hope your squish is a good one! Praying for a clear report.ReplyDelete
The saddest part is the leukemia she got was so rare. I thought this girl was on her way to good health, she was 7 months cancer free.xo,SusieDelete

Life is way too short. I try to find some joy each day, a blessing I can count. I pray this young girl knew how much she was loved. xo,SusieDelete

I am so sorry. We often have no idea of the suffering others are going through. Life is fleeting.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
I'll pray it turns out well, Susie.
How sad! Thoughts of you and a good report-think on those things.ReplyDelete
