It's been a roller coaster ride since I found out about my mum's lump. A million things was going in my head. I know I can't live without my mum. I just dont even know how to imagine not having her around. At the same time, I need to manage my expectations.

After the mammogram and ultrasound, we went to see another doctor and got FNAC procedure done. FNAC is a procedure where a needle is inserted into the lump to take out small tissue for examination. This procedure is very simple. It is just like drawing blood. But during this procedure, somehow they couldn't get that much out because there was pus. When I heard that, my heart sank. It doesn't sound good. But the doctor decided to go ahead with it and try again. Same thing happened the second round when the needle was inserted. They just couldn't get much tissue out but after discussing between them (the doctors) they decided it was enough to proceed.

2 weeks later the results came out and Alhamdulillah it is in favour of a benign. I questioned and questioned the result because I couldn't believe it. Doctor decided to remove the lump and after that, they will do a biopsy to determine if it is cancerous. For now, I will just take it as it is not cancer. Alhamdulillah for now.

I need to keep praying.

If the results from the biopsy comes back negative. Then no further treatment is required. But if it is cancer, then we will need to discuss further treatment.

Allah answered my prayers. I swear I feel Him.

At the hospital, despite the major traffic, I asked for help from Him to find me a good parking spot as my mum was inside the hospital already and I didnt want to leave her alone in there for long. Immediately, a parking spot right outside the entrance became available. I just had a good feeling it was going to be a good day.

Although there is still a chance that it may possibly be cancer, for now, let's just remain positive and keep praying. Miracles do happen and this is definitely one of them.


Say what?!
