FEAR: Relaxing, Being Still and Breathing

Though I expected the results of the biopsy I had today by Friday, it’s not going to happen for three reasons:

  • The results can only be released to the oncologist.
  • He has to meet with me to go over the results.
  • His next available appointment is not until March 27.

But, I refuse to allow the FEAR of a breast cancer recurrence into my space by this delay.

FEAR will not change the biopsy results, but it will surely destroy my happiness, peace and joy for the next twenty-five days.


So, I choose to FIGHT FEAR by BEING STILL, RELAXING AND BREATHING while expressing gratitude for the gift of life and living in the present moment.

During this final season life, I am going on a journey to define "ME." Opening up and going outside of my comfort zone to redefine ME.. Exploring and pursuing new interests that will lead to personal happiness, serenity, and tranquility. In undertaking this mission, overcoming the FEAR is my greatest challenge. Fear has played a large role in my life, but I overcame the FEAR of breast cancer, chronic pain associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, and Sleep Apnea. My new mantra: FEAR has two meanings: "(1) Forget Everything And Run, or (2) Face Everything and Rise. The Choice is Mine." Blogging here I come ready or not!!!

  1. I am shocked and dismayed that they are making you wait 25 days to find out the results. To me that is unconscionable. As always your attitude is amazing.


  2. That is terrible you have to wait that long to get results… Don’t they realise the impact waiting for results has on our lives… Sending you a hug..


  3. That’s a REALLY LONG time to wait for results!!
    Your attitude is amazing, but I would look into getting the results earlier.


    1. It is a long time. While still processing further steps to take, received a post op telephone call from the Imaging Facility. Told the nurse I was doing fine physically, but mentally stressed with having to wait until March 27 for the results. She was going to check and see if they could bring me back there on Thursday for the results. I sit and wait. But, after lunch gonna try and see how this Nikon D5200 Camera works. Excited about the on-line blogging course offered to our blogging community. Hugs.


  4. I am praying that God will show up and you will get the results sooner. When we put it in his hands he’s going to do something. If God is for me who or what can be against me. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. All things happen for a reason we just have to trust God that when we put it in his hands it is in the right place. God did not give us the spirit of fear but the spirit of Love, Power, and A Sound Mind. Amen!


  5. I am praying that God will show up in this. He did not give us the spirit of fear but the spirit of love, power and a sound mind. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. If God is for you who can be against you. God is a healer and deliver. When the prayers go up blessings come down. Thank you God for everything you are doing in Phyllis life. Amen!


    1. Thank you for your prayers. Less than an hour ago, I received the post op call from the Imaging Center. When the nurse asked if everything was going okay, I said, “ok physically but disappointed mentally.” And, I went on to explain my concern with having to wait until March 27 to get the results from my oncologist. She replied, “Let me check and see if I can get you back here on Thursday for the results.” So, I sit and wait anxiously while expressing gratitude for compassionate people, like yourself, who are uplifting me up in prayer.


    1. Since breast cancer diagnosis in 2008, I have been working on ME. Learning to accept. acknowledge and let go. Focusing on living in the present moment and expressing gratitude daily.
      Thank you for your prayers.


  6. The oncologist should have the results tomorrow; and, I call his office and insist that he either discuss the results by phone or schedule an emergency appointment to see me next week. Thank you for your prayers.


  7. Thank you. I remain positive, but nevertheless concerned with having to wait twenty-two days for the results. This is troubling, given the results are in the oncologist office, but cannot be released until he has an appointment available in twenty-two days.

    Working everyday to stay positive. And, I am grateful to blogging friends like yourself who send uplifting and positive messages.


  8. My Sister, I will make sure to add you onto my daily prayer list. My wife had a cancer removed in 1997 and she is now considered cancer free, I pray that God will be as kind to you.


    1. Thank you for your prayers. I received the call late Friday afternoon from my oncologist’s office and the biopsy showed no recurrence of breast cancer. Since receiving the results, I express gratitude daily for the words gifted “no evidence of recurrent breast cancer.”
