We find ourselves at the point of making a decision of how to begin the long journey of treatment. Today’s appointment was not helpful to me. I left the doctor in tears and very confused. I couldn’t put any of his words together into sentences and at one point I saw his mouth moving, but I couldn’t hear his voice. Rick was wonderful because he recognized immediately when I shut down and jumped right in. We left without any decision other than to go ahead and get the surgery scheduled for next Thursday. This was the earliest time and at a very minimum I will have to have my lymph nodes removed and the chemo port put in.
I need everyone to PRAY, PRAY, PRAY intensely for the next few days for God to reveal HIS plan for my treatment. I do not want to tell what our thoughts are, because I want to have people pray for GOD’s will, NOT what we are thinking. I have a “gut” feeling what I should do, but I want to be sure I’m not missing some important reason for taking a different path. I want to be sure I don’t have a subconscious block to considering some of my options.
Please pray for:
- God’s Will to be revealed to us in a way that we know we are hearing from Him
- Wisdom and Knowledge direct from God to the doctors and us
- Peace that passes all understanding in the decision God shows us
- Rest and restoration to our bodies and minds so that we can move forward clearly and confidently in God’s plan
I cannot tell you how much we appreciate the cards, flowers, gifts, texts, emails and posts encouraging us and blessing us. They give us strength and make us feel we are surrounded by love. Please continue to pray.
