As I'm sure I've mentioned, my next appointment with the oncologist is Wednesday at 1:30. It is there that I will get my biopsy results and next steps.
The wait is not going too badly, which I am certain can be attributed to all of your prayers. Again, THANK YOU!
One thing I am experiencing is some fear. My fear is not that the doctor will confirm the lymphoma diagnosis. In fact, I am hoping to hear that is what it is. My fear is that it is something worse.
I have been on an emotional roller coaster since April 12th. After hearing lymphoma, I was so scared. Then (thanks mostly to all my dear, kind brother's research that I haven't been able to do on my own yet) I heard so many encouraging things about lymphoma being treatable that I felt at peace with that diagnosis. Then I started thinking "What if they're wrong? What if it's something much worse?" And that is where I am now. So my peace is somewhat circumstantial. Please pray that God would give me the strength to say: Lord, help me to be content and at peace no matter what the test results show. I am your servant. My life is in Your hands.
