One Day at a Time

So yesterday was my surgery to have my right ovarian cyst removed, and we ended up with a few surprises.  The doctors felt the cyst and some growths in my left ovary looked suspicious so they took a section and sent them to the lab.  The also consulted with an oncoclogist.  The samples cam back atypical so the oncologist recommended that they remove the growths and the cyst and then close me up. 

We are now waiting on the pathology report.  I will be meeting with a GYN oncologist sometime within the next couple weeks.  Cancer...the big scary word that none of us want to say.  The doctors are not saying it is for sure cancer but I hear the underlying tones of ovarian cancer looming. 

WAITING is hard and scary but I know that I am in HIS hands and I know that no matter what, God will carry us through this.

YES I AM SCARED...but I am determined to be positive and thankful even through all of this.  I know that I will need everyone's help in this so I am asking right now for scripture verses.  I plan to transfer these all to note cards and tape them up all over my walls.

And yes I will conitnue my list of gifts because they are abounding: (my good firend helped me start my list this morning)

107.  I can go back to bed any time I want and sleep all I want.
108.  I get to eat real food today.
109.  I can drink coffee.

I love everyone that is reading this and please send me the scripture verses.


  1. Praying for you Michelle and encouraged that you are focused on the Healer and the blessings around you! Here's a verse from the Message that came to mind...
    Matthew 11:28-30
    The Message (MSG)

    28-30"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
