Well, a week and a day ago, my mom had major surgery to remove a cancerous mass from her colon.
(To read more about that go here.)
And...it's as if she never even had surgery!! She's already doing the treadmill again (she walked 3-4 miles a day before her surgery) and eating fine (although a bland diet) and she's in no pain!
This truly shows the power of prayer!
She wrote a little something and wanted me to put it on here...her first ever blog post! :)
"I have been amazed and humbled by all the prayers,
thoughts and well-wishes from "blogger-land"......when
Susan discussed her
desire to post my health diagnosis on her blog (and asked for my
permission) I never in
my wildest imagination could have predicted the wonderful
comments, concern, and especially prayers from all of you on my behalf.....THANK
YOU from the bottom of my heart.....I have read each comment and feel so
incredibly blessed by the positive words, encouragements and personal stories of
the power of prayer.
I gave the testimony of answered prayer to the
wonderful staff who took care of me in the hospital - from the doctors to the
nurses to housekeeping (they were all astonished at my recovery) - I mentioned all
of you bloggers who united with our family in prayer to the Healer. God
is, indeed, faithful!!
I am feeling wonderful and haven't had to take any
pain medication. I am optimistic about the upcoming consultation
- whatever the future holds, I know I am in God's capable care!!
God bless you all, and again THANK YOU!!"
My mom is such an inspiration! I haven't heard her complain once through all of this! When she was in the hospital all of the doctors and nurses called her their 'Queen Patient' and said that she was so easy and had the best attitude.
Again, thank you for your support and continued prayers!
I'll keep you updated on her health reports.
Have a blessed day! :)
