Lately I have been in a kind of turmoil. I had my latest PET scan. When we went to the oncologist to get the results, she said, "Janene, I'm afraid some sparklies (what I call the cancer tumors) showed up on the film. We have to do a biopsy to see what kind of cancer you have this time." Ok. Do-able.
I got a biopsy and it came back. . . wait for it . . . benign!!!!!!! For some reason the film showed a false positive due to having the COVID shot. I've heard of others getting the same kind of results from the vaccinations. Whew!! My miracle had happened. I was so sure that this was it and I was done for. As I have mentioned before, my previous oncologist had informed me that if I got cancer one more time within the five years of the last one, he gave me approximately one year to live. MY question is, does the one year start from the time of the discovery of a new diagnosis? Or what if I had had it months before finding out? That would leave me with much less time. Lots of things were going through my head and I started making a list of stuff I wanted to get done while I could. I'm still going to do what is on the list . . . just to be on the safe side. You know . . . getting all my ducks in a row.
The first time I was told that I had breast cancer, I went into shock and didn't speak to anyone but Hubby and Jenna for two weeks because I was afraid I would burst out crying and wouldn't be able to stop. The second time I was told I had a different form of breast cancer, it was "Crap! Now I have to go through that again." This time when I was told I had to have biopsy, it was kinda like "meh". Whatever happens happens. Well, I dodged the bullet. I won the lottery. I had another miracle.
Other than that scare, life is going quite well. My darling daughter and her wonderful fiance, Joe, came out to my house and put in an amazing rock garden for me. The man-hours they put in was astounding. Jenna also re-landscaped the hillside at The Woodbridge Building. She is always so busy helping people and never complains. Right now, Joe has a brother in another state who had a massive stroke and has all kinds of crazy serious health issues going on. Jenna and Joe got on the first plane and went to be by his side. Things have stalled as far as his recovery, so they returned home as there was nothing they could do there. So Jenna started a Go Fund Me for the brother's family and raised over $21,000 dollars in a few weeks. She's quite a girl.
Jenna and I have been going to help the son of my late sister, Sandy (dang . . . I sure do miss her). The whole family has helped financially and given support to Rob, but Jenna is the one who took the reins and make arrangements to sell his extra car and also his house. It's way too big for just him, and he's not sure how to handle these tasks. I am in awe of my beautiful daughter.
I'm still watching politics on TV but it's not much fun without Sandy to vent with. So I will close with my usual message since it looks like some of the crazies in Washington are are trying hard to destroy America for some reason. What a shame.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY.
