Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your prayers. On Tuesday, I let you all in on something very personal. My big sister Cynthia is battling her third round of cancer, this time a tumor in her lungs. I humbly asked for your prayers and we received hundreds and probably more than I’m just not aware of.
So how did it go? Well, they were able to remove the tumor and remove part of the lung to make sure they “got it all”. The pathology report is still out but right now it looks like her body is cancer free. I am the happiest girl in the world today. My big sister is ok right now. The recovery is long as the surgery was extensive but as of this moment she is ok and I am grateful.
You know this experience once again reminds me just how precious and fragile life is. My sister has not been well in many ways for a long time. I won’t reveal any more than that to protect her privacy but Sometimes, our relationship has been strained as a result. I am not as understanding and as patient as I could be. When I was growing up, my sister was my biggest protector, my closest friend and my greatest ally. The threat of losing her makes me remember those days more. I’m so grateful I have more days with her and more days to be a better little sister.
Thank you so much to the amazing doctors and nurses at CMC Main in Charlotte. They are taking wonderful care of her. Thank you for your skill, your empathy, your attention and your patience. And most of all thank you sweet Jesus that you are seeing fit to keep my sister on this earth for awhile longer.
When this song comes on, we sing to the top of our lungs
