You bless me....

I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me. Ps. 118:5
I love the Lord, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications.
Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live. Ps. 116:1,2.
 I can't stay long, because..for some reason... the computer makes me feel dizzy...don't understand why.  I want to thank every single one of you for your prayers and lovely words.
This place called blog-land is a special place. It's filled with caring hearts, and kindred spirits.
The tests came back with less than desirable news.  They have diagnosed uterine cancer. A complete hysterectomy is scheduled for 1/11/11. Lymph nodes will also be removed. Then the decision will be made if radiation therapy will be needed.(Previous post explains.)
 Thank you sweet sister of mine, Laurie(from Heaven's Walk) for the call for prayer warriors. The peace that transcends all understanding is washing over us as we walk this road. I so appreciate all the prayers being sent up, and the loving comments left at our blog sites.
The call to prayer tag on Tete's blog is so heart-warming...thank you!
I received some beautiful cards from blog-sisters...they brought tears to my eyes...thank you!!!
 The diabetes is being controlled with diet and meds.  The CT scan with contrast on the heart came back good, so the surgery is a "go".
I'm very tired, have good days, as well as "not" so good. But will continue to trust God...knowing that whatever the outcome, HE is in control.
Please continue to pray for my family, as they are struggling, I found a lump in the groin area that needs to be biopsied...
God Bless you all, and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Love,
Debbie

  1. Oh Debbie... I am so very sorry to read this.
    God is in control & He is holding you & has prepared the Dr's thier whole lives for you, for right now. I will certainly be praying for you, for a good outcome of all that is ahead, & for a speedy recovery.
    We too battled "c" but are now 1 yr. past it all & it is still all clear.
    I am trusting for you, for all good things.
    "Whatever is over your head, is under his feet"
    Before you get up each morning, know that I have already prayed for you.
    Hugs..... K.

  7. Hi Debbie,
    I just want you to know I am thinking and praying for you!
    I was in tears when I read Laurie's email.
    You are a special person, and I am praying for you and your family.

  8. Hi Girl- glad you were able to get on here today and see all the support coming your way! Mailed a card out to you last night and I am sure others will be sending as well.
    The dizziness is vertigo. I have it off and on. You have fluid build up in your ears. Have you had a cold lately? Could be your meds. When you scroll- look at the very top of the computer and focus on that. When you stop, then look back down. It helps me.
    I have been praying for you and your family. I want those doctors to scratch their heads when they find nothing there at all.
    Chin up and hands folded- you are tougher than it is.
    Hugs and so much love- Tete

  11. Debbie- I just got home from work...I think sometimes it is even harder when you have some medical knowledge and I know that YOU do. I am blindly putting my faith and trust in God and asking him to send angels to watch over you and shelter you in the safety of their wings. Your name is a prayer on my heart all day long- and you KNOW you have to be well for this summer because you ARE going to have to see PEARL all decked out in all her finery...Maybe I'll save you an orange cushion just for fun...and we have a trip to make, if I remember right...rememeber...ON THE FERRY...OVER TO MANITOWOC..and then the FUN begins! I'm already airing the sheets our for you.. Love you- Diana

  39. Stopping back to say that I am thinking of/praying for you as you face the next few anxious days.... Many will be holding you up & yes, laying you at His feet.
    I LOVE your play list... I remember a cross country trip, by myself, when I played that tape (yes, the tape : ) & sang along for the whole trip... so appropriate for me tonight
    Be well.... Hugs & His Blessing for you... K.

  40. Dearest Debbie. I am so upset at myself for not knowing about this sooner. I've been absent from blogging for a couple of months and missed your post in December. I am so very sorry you are going through this. I am putting you on my prayer list and will be lifting you up each day.

    God bless you and hold you close my friend. May the peace that passes understanding surround you every minute.

  41. Hi Debbie-I feel like such an idiot because I did not know this was going on with you. I've been a little off the blog path lately and are not quite up on things. I am so sorry you are going through this and will pray for you! But please know that so much is done these days, it is unbelievable. This time last year my 80 year old aunt who I am very close to was operated on for colon cancer and now a year later she is washing all my sheets at the inn and on ladders painting my molding (which are both things she has always loved to do....she can have those jobs!). Please know you are in my prayers and please also keep the faith.

  43. Sweet Debbie...I just heard.
    I will place you at the feet of Jesus continually waiting for excellent results.
    God is in Control...just like the song and scripture says...and I know you know that.
    Ovaries are clean...you can kick this thing in the butt.
    Dear Lord....I pray your hedge of protection around your child...Guide every person who comes in contact with her...I ask for total healing and restoration.
    In Jesus name...

    Love you girl,

  44. Debbie, I am so sorry you have to deal with this. But, with so many people praying for you and knowing what a special person you are, I know God will be looking over you. I have a special angel I will ask to come hold your hand, so if you feel a little squeeze, you will know she is there.

    I will be thinking of you tomorrow and sending prayers.

  46. Psalm 34:4
    I sought the LORD, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears.

    My prayer for you is that you and your family feel His peace and promises at this time. News travels fast in this blog world and when I heard that a sister was in need of prayer I fell to my knees and stormed Heaven . Miracles happen every day — healing takes place every day. It has happened in my very own family. May God hold you in the palm of his hand, may the doctors and nurses be gentle and thorough and may your guardian angels lift you up and help you be restored. Prayers continue. Know how much you are cared for and garner strength from these things. Lots of love and many blessings your way.

Rest in the safety of His wings. He will meet your every need. I'm also praying for your family. You are such a sweetheart, and I'm so thankful you found out about this in time to have it taken care of.

  58. Debbie, I know you don't know me, but I saw your prayer button on Rebecca's A gathering place blog. I am a christian and believe in the power of prayer. I am so sorry for what you are going through with your diagnosis of cancer. I just wanted to say that I will be praying for you and your family. I pray that God's will be done through this very difficult time in your lives. God's word says, "I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; surely I will heal you." II Kings 20:5.

    God Bless you Debbie!
    Your sister in Christ,
