So I finally got to see some of my test results in mychart and from my interpretation, while my stents all look to be open which is great news, there does seem to be more growth. However, it looks to be around my SVC, which would definitely explain the reason for my head issues…well, most of the head issues anyway! 😜
And then there also looks to be that darn problem area in the right lung again but until I talk to the doctor, no reason to stress away the next few days with my beautiful family and gorgeous November weather that we are having. I didn’t mean to leave you all hanging on my test results but I haven’t talked to the doctor yet so I really don’t know much. Praying the progression isn’t enough to need intervention, and from the looks of it, I am guessing I won’t need to do anything quite yet, but if so, whatever it takes to keep pushing forward!
Anyway, I really just wanted to share a blog from a FB page I follow. I was reading it while I was doing the treadmill this morning. Did you catch that?? I am doing the treadmill!! Hey, it might only be 7 minutes at a slow pace but my back, foot and leg are healing well enough that I am able to start exercising and strengthen my body again!! How amazing is God?!!!
And the blog I read was absolutely perfect! When our lives drastically change it is so easy to get sucked in to the negativity, the depression of not being the person we once knew ourselves to be… For instance, 7 minutes on a treadmill used to just be a warmup for me when I was young, yet now I am rejoicing over God blessing me with being able to do it at all! Appreciate the little things people…health issues or not!
Yes, life is hard, it really stinks at times and the hardest seasons sometime seems to last forever. But if I keep comparing myself to the mother or wife or friend I was before my illness, I would still be extremely bitter and my life would be absolutely depressing and miserable.
My body has changed but I have also changed. I have developed and continue to grow in a more personal relationship with Christ! So even though Tim and I are facing some of our biggest struggles, and not only with my health, I am finding peace and comfort through God’s faithfulness. My spirit is finally beginning to soar! Which just made me think of Isaiah 40:31! Go check it out! 😍
Anyway, we don’t always have a choice in our circumstances but we do have the choice…and the responsibility on how we react and handle them. Don’t get me wrong, it is hard to do and I still don’t always react the best, but I am conscious of where I go wrong and try to do better the next time I am faced with difficult situations. Live in the moment, focus on the good and find something every day to be thankful for!
Plus, this blog has a Beatles video so some of my readers should know who they are!😜 Haha! Here is the link. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
