Way back as far as 2008 I was using Karen’s Crossings to talk about my adventure with my head injury, epilepsy, stress seizures and my cure from the disease the head injury created. Looking back 20 years ago I remember the talk my husband and I had with the surgeon the week of my second brain surgery. Just for the record we were wondering what this surgery was going to cause down the road. The first surgery I had to remove the blood clot on my brain created the epilepsy I had to deal with down the road.
So far so good the only thing the second surgery created was 20 years of being seizure and medicine free. Just because that went so well didn’t necessarily mean there weren’t more adventures for me yet to come. On December 12, 2010 I was to start a new journey down Karen’s crossings, a journey down the road of cancer.
Sitting there in the emergency room at two o’clock in the morning the last thing my husband and I expected to hear was “you have bone cancer.” Those four words would set in motion a trip of top speed tests, doctor’s appointments, fears, tears, and thousands of hugs.
Things such as the grasping of my hand by others, the journey with Christ and the strength He would provide, the love of those around me and the guidance from God’s word to guide me. It may be a new adventure but that which got me through before was going to get me through again.
If you will lead me Lord, I will follow.
Once again I feel you grasping on to my hand
as you take hold of my heart.
I love you Lord.
**The news today is the bone biopsy showed it is breast cancer caused. The good news about that is the fact that there is no other cancer I have to deal with. Praise the Lord.
