We just got home from the hospital. Our concerns were confirmed today...Sara has Stage IIB Infiltrating Ductal Breast Cancer. The lymph node biopsy also came back positive, meaning that there are cancer cells in her lymph nodes. We had mentally prepared ourselves for this, and the discussions with the doctors were "emotionally stable".
Sara will undergo surgery at Tripler (here in Hawaii), followed by chemotherapy and follow on treatment at Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio, TX. We're happy that we will be close to home, but the fact that we are leaving Japan early is VERY difficult on both of us.
The LORD is my STRENGTH and my SHIELD. My heart TRUSTS in HIM and I am helped. My heart leaps for JOY and I will give THANKS to him in song.
