I had my surgery December 11. I scheduled a week's vacation to recuperate. I stayed with my parents that
week. I was not sure what to expect from the surgery, but I made it through. I felt very little pain or discomfort.
For a while I was sensitive to the area. When I returned to my parent's home after the surgery I called my supervisor
to let him know how the surgery went. He was amazed that I would be up to talking. He had thought the surgery
would be more taxing to me. I had several people tell me the same thing. My long time friend Joanne that I have
know for 16 years came to see me and was amazed that I was sitting up, watching TV and was able to visit with her. It
was the very next day that I received a phone call from the doctor's office. They informed me that the lumpectomy was
a success and that they had gotten all the cancer. It was a relief and a joy to hear those words. We celebrated
like we never celebrated before.
You took the time to create me for a special purpose. I am grateful that you did. And I thank you for helping
me through my surgery and for making it a success. I know this all fits into your plan for my life. I trust you
wholeheartedly and can't wait to fill your purpose. I want to serve you and to do your will gratefully. I come
to you with a thankful heart that you are mending my broken body. Amen!
