Dear Friends and Family,
I finally have a surgery date for my breast cancer surgery. It will be Thursday, April 28 at 8:30 a.m. I would much rather have had it sooner, but the things which were out of my control were still in God's control. So I trust it is the very best date for the surgery.
Please pray for both surgeons to be careful, skillful, and wise. Pray that I will be safe from infection, bleeding, or reactions to the anesthesia. Pray that I will heal well and be a "good" patient for my husband and kids! Pray that my life will be a true reflection of Christ's life in me throughout the course of the journey.
I am humbled by and thankful for all the prayers already prayed, the cards I have received, the kind offers by so many friends. Please know that God has been answering your prayers by giving peace and calmness and direction. Many people I don't even know are praying for me! How wonderful to belong to the big family of God!
