So I know it's been forever since I posted last. I guess you could say I've had A LOT going on. First of all, we finally got in to our new house. YAY!!! We absolutely LOVE IT!!! Then Christmas came right along so with trying to get settled and ready for christmas while being pregnant, I felt so overwhelmed. But then on top of all that I got some scary news right before Christmas. My doctor found a lump in my breast that was pretty big. He was hoping it was just a cyst so I went in a few days later so he could drain it. Needless to say, nothing came out. He got a very worried look on his face and decided it was definitely a solid mass. He sent me to a specialist who right away said it needed to come out immediately. He wasn't sure if it had already started developing cancer in it yet or not, but I guess with all the crazy hormones I had in my body from being pregnant it would become cancerous very fast if it hadn't already. I was scared out of my mind!!!! Up until a couple of nights before my surgery I hadn't told anyone but our parents. But by then I was completely freaking out, so worried about what would happen to the baby if it was cancerous and what kind of treatments I would have to go through. Jared and I decided that I could really use all the prayers and support I could get so we told our families and bishopric. I had the tumor removed last Monday and found out the results of the biopsy on Wednesday. I feel so incredibly blessed to say that although the "Phyllode" tumor was malignant, it hadn't spread to any of the surrounding tissue. I am so grateful for all the thoughts and prayers from everyone that knew. I honestly can say that I could feel Heavenly Father blessing me and comforting me through your prayers. So other than the fact that I'm missing a good part of my left boob now, I'm completely fine and thankfully the baby is healthy and doing well too.
