3 Weeks Ago

3 Weeks Ago

How quickly things can change in a short period of time.

3 weeks ago:
...Was a Monday, 12/2/13.  Wayne had a guitar lesson.  
The next day Tuesday, was a day of severe back pain (a level 10) that caused a call to the doctor.  
Wednesday was the appointment where blood tests took place.  
Thursday an x-ray and ultrasound.  Thursday night, called to come back in for a cat scan on an enlarged liver.
Friday-cat scan.
Saturday and Sunday- waiting, Church, family time.

2 weeks ago:
Monday-doctor called in morning.  "We need to see you."---Masses
Tuesday-feeling heartsick and broken
Wednesday-walking around numb
Thursday-my husband conducts a concert
Friday-liver biopsy and chest cat scan
Saturday-family pictures bring some light to the heaviness
Sunday-a powerful God-led Church service of tears and prayer and renewed Hope

1 week ago:
Monday- it is given a name: Cancer. A plan is made.  Blood transfusion.  Consult with colon guy.
Wednesday-preop for Mediport 
Friday-Mediport implant surgery
Saturday and Sunday- rest and recuperate, feeling blessed

Monday-the 1st Chemotherapy treatment begins, and will occur for several days every 2 weeks.  Let's beat this thing!

God is the ultimate Healer and Physician.  He created man to also create, in accordance with His Will and Purpose for each unique individual.  Thank you God!  Thank you also for medicine, technology, people that use the gifts You have given them, and for your never ending Love.  I love You.

Reflection Verses:

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26 NIV)

For no word from God will ever fail.” (Luke 1:37 NIV)

I can do all this through him who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13 NIV)
