A day in the life of Princess Orphelia
As most of my friends know my mum was diagnosed with breast Cancer in February last year. The news devastated the family. And we did what was required such as Chemotherapy and radiation. All of this finished in September of last year.

We were all glad it was over. So from that time, our regular checkups and doctor visits were every 3 months, until last visit, they told us to visit every 6 months.

So the sixth months was today, but prior to today's visit, mum had to do a Mammogram and a breast Ultra sound.

Here's where the problem begins, the results don't sound too good. Meaning, that she has some kind of mass in the breast, and needs to have a Biopsy done to find out what it is. sad This will be done Tuesday next week, and then two weeks later back to the specialist to see/get the results of it.

Up until that time, my heart is pumping a million miles and hour, my head hurts badly, my body is shaking. I'm a nervous wreck. I just don't want any more bad news, and I certainly don't want us to deal with anything bad, as we've done last year.

I just need to try and relax and stay calm and hope and pray for the best. To which I'm hoping your guys can help with. I just need some simple prayers for my mum.

Because of the way I'm feeling, I just need some 'me' time and may not be as sociable as I like to. This isn't fair at all and life can sometimes be cruel. crying

So please bare with me.. sweatdrop

So all well wishes and prayers are needed right now. And thank you.. heart

    I was just thinking about your mom tonight but didn't get a chance to ask about her.

    I'll keep both of you in my thoughts and prayers. Give your mom a hug for me if you could.

    No matter what type of cancer it is, cancer is never fun sad I'm sorry to hear about this. My father had thyriod cancer when I was in sixth grade, but he's been clean ever since he had surgery.

    emotion_hug I hope that your Mom would pull through as she has been and get well soon. Maybe the mass is harmless? *cross fingers*

    Currently also dealing with someone hospitalized so I know it's emotionally draining, but gladly for my case, it is not terminal.

    emotion_hug give yourself all the time you need to get yourself together and don't worry about here.

    News like that is never nice to get. I really hope it's not what you fear it might be. Hopefully it will be nothing. You just have to pull through and not let your thought and fears get you down. I know that's difficult, but not fighting those thoughts just makes it all the worse. Best wishes and lots of love! heart

    I had a similar situation with my mother a few years ago. Luckily the mass turned out to be benign and everything was okay. I'll pray that the same is true for your mother. Good luck to the both of you. heart
