                                 A Scare. . .An Evil Scare

Cancer. . .that is a word I have always feared. And yet, here I am hearing it and hearing that word come out of my Mom's mouth is scary. Moderately invasive cancer. 


1.kept or keeping within reasonable or proper limits; not extreme, excessive, or intense: a moderate price.


characterized by or involving invasion;  offensive: invasive war.
invading,  or tending to invade;  intrusive.


1.Pathology .
a malignant and invasive growth or tumor, especially one originating in epithelium, tending to recur after excision and to metastasize to other sites.
any disease characterized by such growths.
any evil condition or thing that spreads destructively; blight.
Sounds so crazy to put those words together in one sentence. And yet, here we are.
The good news is they took it out. The other good news is that the surrounding tissues, they removed to check on, are cancer free. 
So she waits one month to have  radiation. 
Another word I have a hard time with. Isn't raditaion bad for us. Don't we cover ourselves from it?
So my dear sweet momma is getting radiation in a month. 
Thoughts that come to my mind. . .Thank you God for letting my mom detect this evil condition early.
Thank God for an amazing community of prayer warriors who have been rallying around me and my Mom!
Thank God for an amazing doctor who saw her early and the next day booked her surgery!
I am just worried for her and the future. 

Heading to Miami tomorrow. . .
Gotta go hug and love on my Mom!
