"Hands Are Being Held Up"


What started as a quick trip to the ER has turned in to a 3 day stay at the Hospital, so far. I arrived on Sunday with severe dehydration from 10 days of on and off vomiting and diarrhea.  I was immediately put on sodium chloride IV drip and after lab results I was told my potassium and magnesium were low.  Yesterday, was a very difficult day.  I suffered from nausea,diarrhea, a bloating stomach all day and ended the day throwing up.  Several tests revealed concerns for bowel obstruction or imflamed bowels.   I'm not sure what news we were expecting, but I wouldnt have guessed that diagnosis.  The doctor said Ovarian Cancer can cause these issues.  


My children put out a plea for friends, family and others following our journey to help stand in the gap with us by praying, fasting and believing in healing over my body.  This is one of Jordan's posts;
"Whenever Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed, and whenever he lowered his hand, Amalek prevailed.  But Moses' hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side.  So his hands were steady until the going down of the sun."  Exodus 17:11-12 

There are days when Satan wants you to feel all alone and that the journey you're on is never going to end.  The great thing is, I already know how my journey ends and there is nothing that can seperate me from His steadfast love.  Jesus already won the victory for me.  What a blessing to know that the days I'm weary and worn out, there are many holding up mine and my family's hands and interceding on our behalf to the Father.   We are so grateful for so much love and support.

Today has been a much better day already.  I almost feel "normal"  again.  The doctor thought my stomach should be drained of fluids again, but when I went for the procedure, the radiologist felt there was no need. I've had very little nausea and a small amount of diarrhea today. This is a huge difference from the past 10 days.  Some could say it's  a coincidence and timing of getting better, I choose to say my God is listening, hearing and answering prayers for me and my family.  His mercies are new every morning, great is His faithfulness!!!!

"Today is the day the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it."

  2. We prayed over you in 4W for a while today. It was such a sweet time of prayer to lift you up. We are all pleading with God to heal you. You are so loved. I don't know anyone who loves Jesus as much as you do. I hope you continue to feel our prayers.

  8. When silence is God's only voice, and waiting on Him my only choice,
    A banner of faith I humbly raise and offer up a song of praise.
    Though answers He may not impart,
    Forever I can trust His heart.
