Monday after Surgery

His eye is on the sparrow & I know He watches, me this is a lil wren. But I love birds.

Rich and I had a good evening last night..slept well, had a good day and I am feeling 
so PerKY today. 
I have been emotional , filled with love , not sad or hopeless at all.

I can't tell you how much friends mean to important it is
to feel loved and cared about.
I have been reading alot ..devotionals, miracles, Chicken Soup for the Soul
& books of hope and faith..I even laughed HARD today at a story about a lady's 
pastey nipple falling out and being mistaken for a cookie...LOL
My pastor called and  asked me ..what do YOU want at the end of this journey..
so I know what to pray for you!
I want to be a giving, loving person and a testimony to God's love and power.
I know I can make it with love , support, medical care and spiritual care!!
each of you means so much to me..and the social & spiritual  aspect of cancer is SOOOOOOOOOO
The blessing of peace and comfort in our home is wonderful..If I had
to get cancer for this, tis worth it.  I can't begin to tell you how hard
it has been with Rich's dad here for 2.5 years.  I thank God for this blessing
and for my loving friends and family.
Tonight ..I'll share this.
I wasn't scared ..we were at the hospital
at 6.30 AM and I went to surgery about 1.20 PM..I was with my hubby, oldest
daughter and best friend until 12.30 ..we laughed and talked and I was never 
scared or too nervous..and NO meds to calm me down.
When I woke up..I saw the clock..8PM..I knew I was in recovery..I knew
it was over, and I was SCARED!!!!! All I did was lay with my eyes open
for an hour looking at that clock.   A man next to me was saying the
EFF word to the can someone be so disrespectful to
a person who is there to HELP you???
The minute my bed was rolled into my room, I saw my Rich and was 
peaceful and happy and not scared again.  He stayed that night and took
such good care of me.  I was so thankful he was there. 
I KNOW that all the prayers that were said for me had a HUGE effect on
my surgery . Yesterday , on the way home, I looked in the car sideview mirror and thought..I look rugged, BUT I am GLOWING, it's the love of God I saw .
 I will share more tomorrow..
the journey continues..

  10. Deena, I came here via Becky's Sweet Dream Cottage. You are added to my prayer list for a healthful recovery and God's best blessings for you through this trial.


  11. Deena, your post is such an inspriation and a testimony of strength and faith. I am teary eyed reading it, especially when you said you were scared, but then felt safe when you saw your loving husband. You both sound like such loving people.

    I love your music and there is such a peace and calm when I visit you on your blog. Not even knowing you, I feel like I do.

    Blessings and continued prayers and hugs from friends afar,


  12. Praise our heavenly father in Heaven! I am so happy to hear that you are sounding so well. I am so excited! Now we just need to make sure all the cancer is gone and that you will be in remission for the next 50 years! Oh, praise God for all the answered prayers! Thank you for sharing your story with all of us. You are an amazing woman! I want to hear how your are doing every day. I can't wait until you feel 100% again.

    Have a very merry Christmas!

  13. (((((((((((((((Deena)))))))))))))
    You will discover so many miracles and so much joy on this journey. Some of it will be the hardest walking you've ever done and yet it will be some of the best walking you have ever done.
    Glad you are feeling well!!

  14. So glad you slept well and came home to a peaceful home. Praying that you will continue to recover well.

  15. I am praying for you too, Dear Sister. Your posts are inspiring and a beautiful witness to the love of our Lord.

    I have been dealing with a chronic and dibilitating illness for a couple of years now. I cannot thank God enough for allowing me this cross. I have learned, grown, and become so much more than I would have, if He had not redirected my path.

    You are an instrument of His love and peace and I am so very happy that our paths have crossed. I will visit often and look forward to reading your beautiful posts.

    Hugs... *Linda*
