Psalm 36: 5-9 ...
"Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains., your justice like the great deep. O Lord, you preserve both man and beast. How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of light; in your light we see light."
We went to Dr. Cutrell yesterday morning with Rick - for his pre-op. Other than his blood pressure being too high (because the clinic stressed him out and made him mad right before taking his blood pressure) everything is cleared. EKG was "perfect" ... chest x-rays were "clear and good". He was told that he "passed" and results were being forwarded to Dr. Devinney. PRAISE THE LORD!!! Surgery is scheduled for next Wednesday in Tyler @ 11:45 a.m.
Next stop was Dr. Tris for him to check my incision. He said that it looked good. Had Linda remove the staples. OW! Thankfully, not as bad as I had been afraid of. A few brought tears to my eyes. But, we made it thru :-). He put me on a round of antibiotics just to be on the safe side. There is some redness with the incision and extremely tender. He said that this is pretty much "normal" - but just to be sure. Linda said to take the script to Medicine Chest North - that they were running a special promo for October on antibiotics. It was supposed to cost us around $34 ... cost us $0!!! PRAISE THE LORD!!!
While at the clinic with Rick, Dr. Michael Frumovitz called - said he wanted to check on me, see how I was doing since surgery. We talked some. He said everything sounded good and "normal" at this time.
Then, he said he wanted to give me the final pathology report ... deep breath. We had gotten the path report during surgery - but this was to be the final and detailed one.
...NO invasion into the wall of the uterus.
...NO invasion into the muscles.
...NO spreading of the cancer at all.
...NO chemo or radiation needed!!!!!
THANK YOU JESUS! THANK YOU JESUS! THANK YOU JESUS!
PRAISE GOD! PRAISE GOD! PRAISE GOD!
He said that he will see me for the follow up visit the end of this month, or the first of next. And that MDA will be wanting to keep me closely watched and cared for after this.
After the doctors' visits ... we tried to think of something to eat that sounded good. Nothing. We started home and decided to have a cheat meal :-) ...
Cheeseburger and fries from Johnny's Place in Como ... OMW!!! How good it all tasted. Hamburger cooked to perfection. French fries seasoned just right. My tummy felt better :-)!!!
Came home and watched a movie - "Carry Me Home" ... a different movie, but it was a good one.
Rick's dad came down to check on us and to visit a little.
While he was here, a van pulled in - it was my brother and sister in love, Billy and Mickie. They were on the way to a grandson's football game. They wanted to stop and check on us ... and they brought us supper :-). I have been craving Chicken Pot Pie ... and what did she bring? HOMEMADE CHICKEN POT PIE :-) ... talk about feeling loved and cared for! OMW it was good! She is an awesome cook - and we certainly enjoyed that last night! :-)
And how did the day close out?
My sweet and compassionate husband did something I didn't ask for nor did I expect.
Right before bedtime, he got a warm bowl of water, some sweet smelling bath gel, and sat down at the foot of my recliner. Because I cannot bend over and wash my feet and legs, he did it for me. Tenderly, gently. Oh, how good it felt, how sweet it smelled. Made me feel even more loved and cherished and honored.
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
