Good Morning to you all...
I just wanted to thank you all for your prayers, kind comments, e-mails and telephone calls. How I appreciate it all could never be properly expressed, but please know that I do.
As my daughter explained (thanks Mel) the biopsy didn't exactly go as planned. My radiologist who did the procedure told me he has done over 2,000 of these and I was only the second one that it had ever happened to. Guess I could be grateful (and I am) that most women do not go through what I did. I do wish I had escaped it too, but AGAIN...it is what it is. The good news is I am feeling MUCH better today. The swelling has gone down (though not completely for sure) and I am off the pain meds (hate those soo much so YAY to that) and my ultra sound yesterday revealed that it is SLOWLY improving. Sooo now I go back in tomorrow for another check and if it is continuing to go down they will probably be done with me. If not, then they will drain in on Thursday afternoon. I am of course praying that it will not be necessary. I am not really wanting them to touch me again anytime too soon, haha. I will tell you this. I don't think I am a baby when it comes to pain. I have had 4 babies (1 completely without drugs) a hysterectomy, gall bladder surgery and suffer from daily arthritis pain and I have NEVER come close to that kind of pain. It was REALLY bad. I think it was because I had to wait most of the day to get some pain medication, and by then it was completely out of control. But, it is behind me now and I am grateful. And now I wait. I will most likely hear today. I have been ALL OVER THE PLACE with this. I am trusting God that whatever the outcome He will see me through. He NEVER lets me down and I know my trust is well placed. And yet of course I am VERY human and my mind does waver over into the what if's way more frequently than I want it to. But I love that He understands my weaknesses and human limitations and loves me anyway and I can run to Him just as many times as I need too.
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength." - Corrie Ten Boom
I read this quote this morning on Laurie's facebook and I thought oh how true this is. And then of course there is always..
Matthew 6:24 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
So for the rest of this day I will dwell on some of my favorite verses in the Bible, and believe that its promises are true....the peace of God will be mine.
Phil 4: 8 - 9 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.
