2 surgeries down...one more to go.

Peter 1:6-76 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.

Let me be reminded how great our Father is and what all he has done and to use my "trials" to glorify him. Such a little cost I have had to pay to gain such rich faith and understanding of how good he is and to be able to share this with others. BLESSED.

I apologize for the late post about my Thyroidectomy surgery. My surgery was a success and I am now post op day 8 and am feeling really good and regaining strength. This was such an easy breezy surgery and recovery compared to everything else :) Praise God!

I met with my hysterectomy Dr on Monday and scheduled this surgery for wednsday, November 9th. I know what your thinking! Back to back surgeries!!! Crazy lady. Yes, I am hardcore like that :) only kidding. Not really though ;)
Everything will be fine, I can handle this and I am ready to get all this behind me so I can push FORWARD. I want to spend the holidays with my family without the worries of surgery and I also want to be energetic and perky to head back to work at the beginning of the year. Yes, Work!!! Exciting!!! After much prayer I feel like I am being called to go into oncology. Please pray that as I start searching for my new nursing position that God will lead me to a place where I will have the opportunity to impact many.

I hope everyone is having a good week, enjoying this beautiful fall weather! Remember this month is National breast cancer awareness month! Ladies, make sure you are giving yourself monthly self breast exams and if you are at risk get a mammogram. So important. Get informed. Think pink!

Much love!
