I'm going in for a biopsy today of a large lump in my armpit...which has start to spread (I think) to my collar bone area. I have had this enlarged lymph node for over 2 years, and it has never really gone away.
I'm nervous about lymphoma...
...scared about what having cancer could mean for this pregnancy and my family.
My brother is battling Hodgkins right now, and I figured it was better to figure out what is going on with my body, rather than to continue to worry about it and simultaneously put my head in the sand.
I'm nervous about the appointment...not for me, but because I have to leave DD at home with some family friends who she isn't very familiar with (moved to new city recently)....she doesn't like DH right now, so I hope it goes OK with our generous, last-minute babysitters.
anyways, I just had to share some my anxiety, since no one here (except DH) knows about the appointment....and he's out of town for work...and I don't want to let him know how anxious/worried I am.
lift us up in your prayers,
