My day at the surgeons office

Thursday, June 09, 2011

These past 7 days dealing with the findings of a large mass and testing positive for ovarian cancer has given me a time to reflect on how blessed I have been in my health. Im strong and healthier now at 50 than I was when I was in my 20's and 30's. Most of my life Ive spent obese and I cant imagine going through all of this at my heaviest weight of 430lbs. The only surgery Ive had was getting my tonsils out at the age of 31.

So Im in the surgeons office shes asking me all kinds of questions about myself and my health and was very pleased that Im as healthy as I am. She went over the procedure and then she examined me. In her examination she felt the mass and said to me "This is a very large mass of 20 centimeters and asked me if I felt it move and I said yes. She then asked me how fond I was of my uterus I just simply said Im 50yrs old Im not married I dont have any children if Ive havent used it by now its more than likely I dont need it. We just laughed and she said she was going to do a full hysterectomy on me and I said that is fine with me.

She then explained to me about the cancer and said she really wont know what stage Im in till they biopsy the mass. She said she is almost certain its not in the advance stages and that there is a good chance I caught it in the beginning stages and even possibly come up benign. I told her that when she biopsies the mass shes not going to find any cancer because Jesus has already healed my body.

She then went over the particulars of the stay at the hospital but all in all I left there with such a confidence and peace knowing my Savior has healed my body. I thank him always for the trials and storms that come my way because it gives me more of an opportunity to witness for him, to show those who dont know him the love and faithfulness and the AWESOMENESS of our Savior. There is nothing more I enjoy doing than doing the work of my Savior, not only in telling them about him but showing them that when they trust in Jesus he is a friend who sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24). You can always trust him and count on him because he never goes back on his word.

My prayer is always Lord let them see you and not me, let them hear your voice, not mine...Let them feel your presence of forgiveness and love. For Im only a vessel for you to use for the advancement of your kingdom... All GLORY HONOR AND PRAISE GO TO YOU LORD!!

This is my hearts prayer.


I feel your prayers surrounding me. How I love my sisters and brothers you mean so much to me and I am truly blessed by all of you.

    So help me, Griff, I wanna go buy tambourines for you and Shelly and myself and have a Miriam dance of celebration with the both of you! lol We've SUCH cause for rejoicing. I have never before felt absolute JOY at hearing a friend had been diagnosed with cancer. But that is exactly what I felt when I read Shelly's post about the mass in your body that is going to bring such enormous glory to God. I have had total peace and joy because I know, know, KNOW our Beloved's everlasting arms are holding you tight, cradling you to His bosom, strengthening you with His nearness such that people will be able to smell the fragrance of Him when you pass them by. I love you and I am so excited about what God, the defeater of our foes, is doing!!
