To surgery I go!
Although, I have a nasty crick in my neck, and I may have overdone it on the "plank" stomach exercises yesterday. My chest hurts terribly, especially if I breathe deeply or move out of sitting straight up and down. My best guess is pulled intercostal muscles. Those are the little muscles between the ribs. I slept maybe two hours. I don't really want the surgery, but I don't want to postpone it either. The time is now changed to 11:30 for surgery, so I have several painful hours to just sit here dying of hunger and thirst.
I received a text from one of the mama's I work with yesterday. She had no idea how much she was ministering to me on the eve before my second breast reconstruction surgery. She had chosen life over abortion several weeks ago, and then experienced terribly dangerous placenta problems. She texted me telling me the placenta had healed itself.
"Were the doctors astounded?" I asked. "Did you tell them WHO healed you?"
Here is her answer:
YES. THEY SMILED ♡ MY PLACENTA WAS COVERING UP MY CERVIX BAD. IF IT WAS TO BUST, I WOULD BLEED TO DEATH. ME AND THE BABY COULD HAD DIED ... THEY WERE GOING TO HAVE TO DO AN EMERGENCY SURGERY BUT WHEN I WENT BACK TO GO DO THAT, FIRST THEY DID AN ULTRASOUND. THEY COULDN'T BELIEVE THE PLACENTA MOVED ON ITS OWN :))))))))) MY BABY IS A STRONG HUMAN BEING. ALL MY BABIES R ♡ VICKY, U DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW U CHANGED MY LIFE IN THE WAY TO THINK WHEN I MET YOU, AND U STOPPED ME FROM MAKING THE BIGGEST MISTAKE IN MY LIFE. I'VE ALWAYS WANTED A SISTER AND NOW MY DAUGHTER WILL HAVE ONE! IMAGINE THAT I WAS GOING TO DESTROY A BEAUTIFUL ANGEL IN MY BABY GIRL THAT I WANTED SO BADDDDD, BUT FELT HOPELESS!! GOD HAS ALWAYS BEEN ON TIME.
As I go into surgery today, that mama's faith, joy, and trust in God will echo in my heart. God has always been on time.
In all likelihood, there will be no blog for a day or so. I appreciate all your prayers so much. I am confident that God has me in His hands.
Please also pray for the mama who chose life this past Monday. She is still struggling with her decision. God knows her name.
For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.
Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
For there is a time and a way for everything, although man's trouble lies heavy on him.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
