I want to say I am glad to be back and hope you all missed me! ;} I missed you.
Some of you may know August of 08 I almost died of cancer. I had major surgery as my cancer had spread to several organs. In fact my Doctor came out and told my family I was stage 4. But after the biopsy showed it had not spread to my limp nodes and I was told I was stage 2. My surgeon also told me it was the biggest operation he had performed all year and he had not seen cancer spread so much and not be stage 4
I was advised by my cancer doctor that without chemo my cancer would most likley come back and it would probaly come back stage 4 which is the worse stage.
I prayed about it and researched it and decided to not have chemo and to eat right and to try a diet called the Hallelujah diet. I really felt the peace of God about my decision. http://www.hacres.com/home/home.asp.
In Jan I was having pain and nausea and went for a check up. My doctor had me do a cat scan and it looked like the cancer was back in 4 areas. Back in my colon, in my liver, lungs and one lump node. The next week we did a pet scan and it showed the cancer only in my colon and one limp node. My Doctor tried to get me to have more surgery at that time but I was afraid because I had almost died the first time.
In June I went back to the Doctor for another pet scan and my two daughters went with me because we were expecting the worse as I was still having the pain and nausea. I really thought I was dying.
My Doctor looked at me and smiled and pointed up to Heaven and said you have been healed but not by me. Praise God! I was shocked and said where is my pain and nausea coming from then and he said I don`t know but it is not your cancer!! He also said nothing shocks me but I am surprised.
I know that I was healed by God and that he led me to learn about health and nutrition thru the Hallelujah Website.
Some things I learned in my year long battle, family is so very important. Do not be so consumed making a living that you don`t take the time to love your family and friends. Stop and let God speak to you. One verse He would use for me was "Be still and know that I am God"
He even used that little song count your blessings name them one by one!
Now I have to get back to work and I am ready and excited.
