I was staring at the phone number of a doctor I just met that thought it important enough to give me his personal cell phone number. I was in shock, not over the fact that I was not starting ministry school nor that I had a large pericardial effusion that could cause me to fall dead any second, but due to this simple act of human concern and kindness. As I would soon learn he meant it too, because over the course of the next five months I would use that number on multiple occasions. Dr. Brian Lyle is in a league of his own, He puts the capital C in the word caring.
That day marked the beginning of my second metastasis, my third cancer journey. They took 1500cc of fluid out of my heart sac that day and it tested positive for the same breast cancer cells. I never knew you could get cancer in the heart, I guess the Lord was making a statement and He wanted my attention!
