A True Healing
Dear Rock, I was pleased to be included in your mailing re: your
healing. Firstly, please finda place for it on one of your sites. It is
a great witness! Worthy! Secondly, I want to thank you for your example
of Christian Manliness – a real tribute to the Lord. This generation of
young men and women have all too few excellent examples. Much confusion
about identity. You have come through. The Lord is pleased. I’ll take
you in my rifle-squad any time. Straight ahead.
And Now Some Witnessing of His Awesome Love:
I began to feel pain in my lower right abdomen 14 months ago. It became serious over the months until two months ago when it became so severe, I was literally forced to seek professional help—My wife finally forced me to go to the doctor. The pain had spread throughout my body.
I did not tell many do to the fact that we were in the middle of beginning this journey through the web. The first doctor checked me out, blood tests and such, EKG, the works.
Discovering that I had had hepatitis in the seventies, he began to focus on my liver and gall bladder (this was four weeks ago!!) all the symptoms pointed to a severe situation. Every symptom matched those of cancer of the liver and gall bladder.
The next step, I informed several of our staff of the fact I had a severe problem and that they needed to learn faster the operations of our web site. And, Then, I went to have a sonogram performed on my liver.
The results were not encouraging. Both the specialist and the original doctor diagnosed severe cirrhosis of the liver with vast scarring and nodules. Further, all TWENTY FIVE photos shows this fact and the fact that a growth was centered in the lower lobe of my liver. ALSO that the gall bladder SHOWED both swelling and indications of a severe situation.
At this point I had my communication with The Father and asked Him If this was HIS will?? Why, I asked,, would this occur?? Did He not desire my completion of my works in His name??
Yet, not a worry did I have. Though I BELIEVED that the end result was what it was, my death. I DID NOT WORRY!! In fact, my wife was crying and I asked her if this was His will, did she not believe that HIS will would take care of her and our children?? I asked her, was our life together these past 4 years the most tremendously greatest it could ever be?? I asked her, what of little Juliana, she is two and NEEDS YOU!!!!
Well, we prayed and she was calmed down and so, I went to the next Doctor, one specializing in internal medicine, he was to perform the next series of rests and proscribe treatment.
He recommended a catscan (by the way, I have zip insurance and run a ministry!! And, for some crazy reason –or not!! Later!!– all these doctors whom heard what I was doing, cut their fees IN HALF!!!) and, so, The night BEFORE the scan, I had another talk with the father and left it in HIS hands.
The catscan was a trip. They used both the potassium liquid and the dye injected into the vein. The dye was to judge the spread of the tumor in the liver, the potassium stuff (nasty chalk!) was to check my digestive system which was wracked by a ton of symptoms that pointed to a spreading of what ever it was I had. In fact, though I work out and had lost weight, my abdomen was swollen with fluids!! (ALL the signs that occurred with my mother whom passed away at 52 with cancer!!)
Well, I went and they did there stuff–and–excepted my request to bill me!!!????!!!
That was the Sat before last! Well, I went and came home and all were calling and asking and I, on the other hand, waited patiently, feeling that GOD would do as HE desired!
It was not until that following thursday that I finally called __to the consternation of Denise (wife) and a few others I had told.
I asked how the scan came out and the nurse told me the doctor had been trying to contact me (you know, leaving it to the Lord requires our complete faith) and that NOTHING WAS WRONG!! THAT THE LIVER AND SUCH WERE PERFECT!!
Now, ya gotta udderstan’ dis! They had and have the original sonogram! I SAW the actual sonogram pictures as they were being taken! That doctor stated the cirrhosis was severe. In fact, when I said that at least cirrhosis was better than cancer, he said he did not think so and gave me a weird look –like I was nuts– cause I was so upbeat!! In fact, I knew he knew it was worse–my condition!!
Now, after receiving the test results and pictures of the first two doctors, Dr. Shour received the catscan and was confused (now, this is a very good specialist whom is much respected in his field!) and ordered a GI series and other stuff with cameras and ALL !!11!1!11
well, yesterday I arrived at the Gwinnett Hospital with wife in tow at 7:30 am. I proceeded to the day surgery and soon had a mess of concerned nurses tending to my preparations. Soon I was fast asleep under a variety of anesthetics. In fact, they said I “was a bear” to knock out!!
I (groggy) awoke at 10:30 to find my wife sitting by the bed in the recovery room. She was smiling, so, I KNEW something was right!!
She kept trying to tell me something but I was to out of it to understand. Well, by 1 PM I was wide awake and she showed color photos that were taken in which each and everyone was PERFECT!!
The moral to this story of GOD in our lives is that The Doctors have pronounced me fit and ask that I drink less coffee!!
They gave me some medicine for indigestion and, now, it is as if those original photos, the pain for 15 months, and all the other associated symptoms are gone. . . .
PRAISE JESUS CHRIST MY FATHER WHOM HAS STOOD BY ME ALL MY LIFE EVEN WHEN I WAS BREAKING BREAD WITH THE EVIL ONE!!!
Your Brother In Christ
