For those who do not know....I had surgery yesterday. Six months ago I had a needle biopsy done on a "suspicious" place in my breast. It came back benign. They told me that they wanted to recheck in six months. So...that's what we did. A week ago they did another ultrasound and the radiologist said it had changed....gotten bigger and there was a new spot. I saw the surgeon on Wednesday and he said we needed to take it out the next day. I asked him what he thought and he said, "well, it looks like it could be cancer." These were not the words I wanted to hear, but after the shock was over I had a peace. Things went well yesterday and the doctor told my family that he removed a golf ball sized mass but it was vague....nothing really conclusive about the way it looked. It will be Monday before we know. I haven't been out of the recliner much today, but feel better now and had to check blogs. I saw where my daughter, Amy, had posted about our dream the night before my surgery. Please go and read her blog because she wrote just how God spoke to both of us. I'll write more later.

What a beautiful post your daughter did on her blog. Brought tears to my eyes. God is simply amazing. He WILL not fail you Sue~♥

I too have had a golf ball size mass taken out of my breast. (9 years ago) It was benign just like yours is in Jesus name.

Get lots of rest Sue~
God Bless you,

Sue, I'm so glad you were able to post about this today. There is nothing like a crisis to make us realize how very good God is and how near He is. Hope you will get good news and get well soon. In all things, God never fails.

Sue - I'm just amazed at what God can and does do. Loved your daughter's post. I'm not surprised whenever I see God's handiwork. I think He was sending comfort to both of you and knowledge that He will fail you not.

I'll be thinking of you this weekend, and sending prayers up for a good report from the Dr. Bless you!

Oh Sue, I'm late in reading this and didn't know of your surgery on Thursday. I will pray with you as you wait for the pathology report on Monday. May the Lord's peace surround you right now.

Sue, this is answered prayers. I'm so happy for you and the family.
I'm hoping this comment goes through. I tried to comment earlier, right after your surgery, and it would not leave my computer.
We received around 5 1/2" of the beautiful white stuff, too. Like you, we do not get that much snow in MS.
May our Lord continue to bless you.
