Do not be afraid of tomorrow; for God is already there.
Most people, who know me, know that I absolutely hate everything about going to the doctor. I hate hospitals, medications, giving blood, tests, making appointments, co-pays and everything else that come with it. However, in the past year or so, I have been to the doctor more than I have in the last 10 years.
I have been trying very hard to be “better” to my body, listen to my doctor and give blood with a smile. Last year, some of my tests showed that it was a possibility that I could have cervical cancer. A few weeks, and a couple mood swings later, my test results came back in my favor (Praise God!).
This year, I took my first mammogram. Follow by another one and another one, then an ultrasound. The doctors found two lumps in each of my …(you know)
Since my mom is a (breast-less) cancer survivor, I was a little worried. I knew that, no matter what happened. No matter what the results. I would be a survivor, just like my mom!
The day that I was supposed to find out the results; I prayed with my family, I sent out a prayer request to the staff at my church, the moms prayer group and to my facebook family. The only two things that kept me sane was knowing God and knowing that I had people all over praying with me and for me.
Although I went in alone, I felt like I took an army with me. The doctor is 98% sure that I am cancer-free, but I still need to come in for routine visits every few months.
I am a survivor …not because I beat Cancer. But because prayer beat Cancer first.
