Benign, Benign, Benign, Benign!!! I feel like I could say that all day long.
I told you all about my surgery last week Tuesday to remove a lump from my breast and have it tested. (Off to Surgery)
My surgery went really well. I was awake during the entire thing, I didn’t feel any pain and I got the best surgeon in the hospital to work on me. During my two days at the hospital I realized that God has blessed me with a remarkable support system. My family and members of my church who knew really encouraged me and made me feel special.
I’m the type of person that likes to help others. I like to be there for other people and show support any way I could. When I found out that I had to do surgery I didn’t want to tell anyone because I wasn’t worried and I didn’t want anyone to worry either. So, I told my mom and sisters, the members of the youth committee I sit on and my pastors. As God would have it the only inspiration I got to write the Monday I was checking in to the hospital was the fact that I was going in for surgery and I was expecting God to see me through successfully.
That day I got the most amount of views from persons in Trinidad ( I was actually surprised that so many people pay attention to my posts from home). People started writing, texting and calling to offer words of encouragement and see how I was doing. Some where along those concerns I realized that I don’t need to go it alone. I am truly blessed with a battalion of wonderful people who genuinely care for me and for that I am thankful.
Yesterday I went back to the doctor to have my bandages removed and receive the results of the test. I must admit I thought about what it would be like if I had cancer, and the thought itself was frightening. As I sat in the doctor’s office I literally breathed a sigh of relief when I was told that the lump was benign and I would be fine. Isn’t God amazing!
In my rejoicing I am also saddened because someone very near to me called me the day before I got my results and told me they tested positive for cancer. I cried uncontrollably when I got the news. A myriad of thoughts flooded my mind as I compared my situation to theirs and my fears of facing the same fate. I thank God that I am cancer free, but I also pray for my friend and all those who are battling that disease today.
I trusted God to see me through my situation and I’m trusting him to do the same for my friend. I believe God is a healer and I stand on his word which says……………. And by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5). I am trusting God to have his way in my friend’s life and the life of every believer who put their trust in him for healing. God is a good and faithful God and I am believing him for miracles.
