Hi Everyone! I have been MIA for about a month, but for a good reason. Sorry for the lengthy post but just something I had to share! If you remember back in August, I was at my wits end, my baby was hurting and no one could seem to find out what was wrong. I reached out and requested prayer from all of you. I asked that you pray for God to send someone that would see and realize what was going on. You can read about my request here.
I was ready to pull my hair out! Do you know how hard it is to be so far away and know that your child is hurting and there is nothing you can do about it. You are not even close enough to comfort her. And I know we are only 4 hours away but at times it seemed like across the world. It doesn't matter what age they are!
'And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.' Matthew 21:22
I did the only thing I knew how to do...pray! And asked for others to pray. I prayed believing that God would take care of this! You know there is no telling how many blessings we miss, yeah we pray, but do we really believe? You can't pray for the rain to stop and still carry your umbrella! Where's your faith?
My SIL and Daughter have their own business, Cloud Mountain Forestry. He is in the reforestation business. He was meeting with one of his contacts out on his land, the gentlemen was interested in having some work done. Clint proceeded to tell him it might be a little while before he could get to it because of Janice's problems. He told him how they had been to the doctor and ER numerous times but still no answers. Clint also mentioned that they had a disc of images so they could get a 2nd opinion. The man informed Clint that he was a Radiologist, and he would be glad to look at the images. (Is God Good Or What?) Clint made a flying trip home and picked up the CD and delivered it to the man. He tried to open it up on his home computer but it would not work, so he explained it would be the following Wednesday when he returned to work before he could look at it. So the following Wednesday the 26th the kids received a call from Mr. Harms. Now remember take a look at these dates, I requested prayer on the 21st, he volunteered to look at them within just a few days. He was back at work the 26th and opened the images and looked at them.
He contacted Clint and told him he did see something not sure what it was. But there was definitely something there, a mass of some kind. The mass was approx 4 cm. He gave them the name of a Gynecologist/Oncologist in Northern Arkansas. Informed them he was one of the best and she definitely needed to make an appointment a.s.a.p. Clint was out of town on business the following week so they went in on the 3rd of September. Surgery was planned, they would do it laparoscopic depending on the size of the mass. It would be sent to pathology for testing.
Surgery was performed the following week on the ninth. Everything went great, it was done laparoscopically with no problems. The mass was contained inside her uterus, the cervix looked fine. They did take one ovary. The doctor did inform her she had the worse case of endometriosis that he had seen, which would cause all the pain she has been in. Everything that came back from pathology was benign! Praise the Lord!
Needless to say this momma was jumping for joy and Praising Jesus! I spent the month of September in Arkansas helping with kids and keeping her house running, and was proud to do it. But yes, my bed sure did feel good when I got home. I thank God every day for my sweet hubby who is always so understanding!
Amazing how just a business acquaintance was exactly what we needed. The perfect answer to prayer! Did I mention - God Is So Good!
'And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.' Mark 11:22 - 24
