It Will Be
It Will Be What It Will Be
Not sure where to begin. I hate asking for things for myself or requesting prayer. I don't want to be the center of attention. That's just not me.
Psalms 34:1 "I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth."
I requested prayer the other day. My referral Gynecology Dr. did some blood work on me testing specifically the CA 125 levels in my blood. Mine are 169. The normal level for that lab is less than 20.
John 15:5 "I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."
That test alone is in NO WAY a diagnosis of cancer. It could still be because of my ovarian cyst, fibroids, endometriosis or where I am during my menstrual cycle. The only way to know for sure if it's cancer is to remove the cyst and have it biopsied.
Hebrews 4:16 "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
I have however, been referred to a Gynecology Oncologist who specializes in surgeries where you may need a bit more of an expert. That appointment is Wednesday, February 20th at 10:30 a.m.
Mark 7:37 "And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak."
I am anxious to say the least. I've been through many stressful surgeries, facing unknown results, in my life starting at age 15. This one will be no different. I am very confident God is in control of my life, I will be able to handle whatever comes my way.
Matthew 6:34 "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."
I'm praying just for removal of the ovary and cyst and a clean biopsy. I want the rest of my female parts left where they belong, leaving those hormone producing organs there for the rest of my life. You already know, one of my great desires is to have more children.
Isaiah 41:13 "For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.".
So. . . if you will be in prayer for me and my family. My husband is handling things remarkably well. He originally said to me, "It will be what it will be. What can we do about it?" We've told all the other family except for my Sully. I'm just not sure how much he will understand about what is going on. Like I said, I am very anxious, but I know "The Great Physician" and trust him with my whole life.
Joshua 1:9 "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."
I will try to keep you updated especially the date and time of my surgery. Please PRAY! Leave me verses of encouragement. It really does help me to read and meditate on God's word.
Psalms 56:3 "What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee."
Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart: and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
