Why is it always those who are special?

We've had some really sad news , Melissa one of the young teachers at the school dh works at was disgnosed with breast cancer on Tuesday. She is one of the happiest, sweet natured, caring people I know. She made an wonderful impact when she started at the school, with both parents and children warming very quickly to her. To my dh she is like another daughter and often jokes at having a drinking contest to see who can drink who under the table, no, don't jump back in horror it's just a standing joke between them. The consultant is responding very quickly, she has to go into hospital next week for a mastectomy. It has all happened so quickly, may I ask you to keep her in your prayers.

I can understand how her parents feel, we have just gone through a cancer scare with our own daughter. She had some tests done but when she went for further tests she told the consultant she didn't want to go ahead with them and refused to have them or any treatment he was offering. We still don't know what the outcome will be as when she takes it upon herself to be stubborn she does it with a capital S. All we can do is put her in Gods hands and pray they would be negative.

Thank you for visiting, I'm sorry it wasn't a more happy post

take care
hugs Peg

I am sorry to hear about Melissa's sad news. We are going through this with one of the ladies in the quilt group. She had her surgery and everything was okay but now a lump has returned. It is very worrisome. Please know I too will say a little prayer for her. I hope you get some happy news after her surgery.

Hugs ~

My thoughts are with Melissa and I wish her luck with her op.

Thank you ladies, I'll pass your good thoughts on. She's a super girl and will be really missed whilst she's off. Until the surgeons operate they won't know the full extent so we're praying they have caught it early.
