I'm not giving up - I'M NOT GIVING UP!!!!!!!!

Thursday, March 16, 2017

In 2005 I weighed 434.
I began a weight loss journey that officially ended Aug 2009 when I weighed in at 190 pounds.
In March 2010 I was diagnosed with cancer (the size of an egg) and within a few days of that I was diagnosed with an ascending aortic aneurysm.
For 6 weeks I went thru chemo and radiation, then the drs gave me a few weeks to recover before open heart surgery, June 8, 2010.
July 1st the tumor was the size of a shooter marble so surgery for that was scheduled. My pre-op appointment was July 22.
My husband came with me to see the dr that day. A day I relive in my mind often - after a series of events that day the dr said she couldn't "find" the tumor!!!!
She scheduled me for a series of tests to insure the tumor was indeed gone.
PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Regardless, the dr said I had to go thru the second round of chemo - this time it lasts 6 months and has potential of permanent damage. Among them, neuropathy.
Neuropathy was a game changer in my fitness routines, quality of life and general status of feeling good, energetic, white blood cell count and fatigue.
Metabolism changed too!!! No matter what I did - really - I tracked my food on Spark People and exercised, mind you with less intensity under drs orders.
Now I battle the weight once again.
I know it was God's help I lost the weight the first time and with God's help I will lose the weight this time!!!!

    My neurologlist said that my tingling was from neuropathy. I did the exercises he suggested and they helped. But 3 weeks into it, I went to a Friday night church service with a special speaker. The word was so good. I was so blessed. Then afterwards, I went to the front for prayer. I had not told anyone about what the dr said bc I didn't want to be a complainer. I told the woman up front; she was the first person other my husband I told. She laid hands on me, prayed for me and I have been set free from neuropathy since that night. I was so exhausted from working all week, that I didn't notice until the next day when I went to put shoes on. All tingling was gone, and it has not come back. Heavenly Father I thank You that MYUTMOST4HIM has such a strong faith in You, and chooses to love and follow You in spite of many terrible trials that many people would have turned their back on You over. Instead, she pressed in and chased after You. I thank Father right now for bringing complete and total healing to MYUTMOST4HIM in Jesus' name because of Your great love for her. Thank You for restoring and refreshing her spirit, and enveloping her in Your presence, in Your arms. May she feel Your peace. Thank You Father. In Jesus' name amen.

    Neuropathy I bind you in MYUTMOST4HIM and command you to the pit in Jesus' name.

    I command healing and life into MYUTMOST4HIM's spirit, soul and body in Jesus' name.
