Recently, I’ve been talking a lot about my surgery. But hey, that’s been the center of my life for the last two weeks. But, here’s what I didn’t talk about.
I was nervous. Really nervous. I was afraid that I would die or that they’d find something wrong. That’s been the theme of my life for the past year and a half. I’d go to a doctor’s appointment and then be told that I needed to have a CT scan or ultrasound. And then, I’d have follow-up appointments to discuss the results. Nothing beats when your doctor leaves you a message after hours to come in the next day. Nothing beats when another doctor has his assistant call you to set up a phone appointment for him to speak to you in the next ten minutes. Or how about being referred to see someone and when you get there, it’s a cancer institute?
He sustained me. He watched out for me. I have truly been blessed. At this point, I have regular scans to monitor.
No matter what has happened, I’m grateful that God woke me up. And even in the face of numerous appointments and numerous tumors, I am here.
My story could’ve been different. And really, who knows what the future holds. But, with God on my side, I can face anything. We’re all leaving this earth one way or another. But, what better way than to have God on your side when that happens. And that friends, is why being a Christian is so important.
Happy Wednesday Comfies!
