Part 2

FYI this is a continuation of yesterdays blog post Part1 

My ultrasound appointment was made for September 10th and I went to go get my blood work done on the 14th. The results would be into my doc by September 17th & I pleaded to somehow get squeezed in for an appointment. I sobbed to the receptionist that I didn't want to have to go another weekend stressing about my results; She penciled me in. 

Take in mind it had already been more than three since the doctor confirmed there was an abnormal lump in my breast. I realized it was extremely difficult to restrain the mind from negative thoughts and emotions. I constantly reminded myself that I had faith in a God that was all powerful and I can truly tell you today, that I never felt Him leave my side throughout this experience. My faith in Him and His word is what kept me upbeat around others not knowing what the future held for me. I prayed and prayed for God to do His will not mine. Do you know how hard that is during difficult times? Its always easier said than done, but I said it anyway. I know everything happens for a reason and I continuously read the Bible verse found in 1 Corinthians 10:13 
No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it. 

Fast forward to the day of my results. Again, I'm sitting in the same cold room, impatiently I may add, waiting for the doctor to hit me with the news. After waiting for what felt like an eternity, my hands sweaty yet my feet freezing I should have worn my Chucks I told myself, she walks in. The woman whose words can change my life drastically. I'm holding my breath, I only have good news for you she says. I'm breathing again, your blood work came back normal and so did your ultrasound results... there were no lumps found. My mouth dropped! Is this a joke? I've felt it for at least the past two months & she confirmed it before sending me to get an ultrasound. Lay down she said let me check again... I don't feel anything she said with a huge smile! I left the doctors office numb and when I got to my car I couldn't hold it in anymore... I was bawling to the point where I got hiccups! It was a miracle, my God, He heard my prayers! 

I am forever grateful and indebted to Him. I feel like he seriously gave me back my life. A life that I have promised myself to live healthier, positive and spend more time with those close to my heart. This test has brought me back to reality in a sense. Ironically, we get caught up if "life" working, commuting, or simply just squandering time in things that bring no benefit to us. Instead of dreaming how life should be, lets make it happen. Take it from me, tomorrow is not guaranteed. When was the last time you told those you care most about how much you love and cherish them? Make time.

Finally, for the ladies. If you can get one thing out of this I want it to be, make time to check yourselves. Make time to go to those annual exams. I cannot stress how important it is. You may think your young, I do ;) but your never too young to get sick. It can happen to anyone. Anyone. Do a self examination and if there is any doubt don't hesitate to see your doctor.

Below are links that I would like for you to take the time to check out:
