I continue to think about this subject. Unforgiveness is one of the major hindrances that can hinder your healing. Listen to what Jesus says in Mark 11:25-26. "And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him and [let it drop](leave it, let it go), in order that your Father who is in heaven may also forgive you your [own] failings and shortcomings and let them drop. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your failings and shortcomings." Happy New Year 2011, I still think this an important message! A quote by Author: Tami Hoag 2007... What purpose does it serve to hold that anger? What good does it do? Hatred is like taking poison and expecting the other person to die of it."

An Opinion... Isn't it amazing that almost everyone has an opinion to offer about the bible (as well as other subjects), and yet so few have studied it (or the subject)? R. C. Sproul, If only one would read before speaking, they would not look so foolish. Yet, I don't want to get in anyone's face... so I keep dropping hints. Does it help? I hope so...)

The first day of the rest of my life...

August 24, 2010 was a big day for me. Two days before my natural birthday (08/27). I had gone into Dr. Jones to have him order an A1C test (glucose numbers). During the conversation I brought up that I had "another" UTI and did not like the sulfa medicine given me by the Royal City clinic. With that information, as well as other discussion, a CAT scan was ordered of my abdoman as well as a Xray of my sore neck.

August 25, I went into have the CAT and Xray done. Suprise! I received a call from the doctor that same evening stating that there was an abnormality in the scan of my right kidney.  Dr. Jones wanted to discuss it with me the next morning. Good news, my neck is just arthritis... hurts, but I can handle that.

Thankfully, my son (James), his wife (BeeAnna) and my grandson (Brandon) came to the appointment with me. I was given the news that I could have cancer in the right kidney. A MRI was scheduled for the next day (08/26).   The MRI results showed a clearer image of the same abnormality.  Dr. Jones also made an appointment for me with Dr. Ness (Oncologist) on 08/30, and Dr. Chavala (Urologist) 09/02.

Dr. Ness' appointment was just to introduce me to more information and who would be taking care of me after surgery.

On 09/02, Dr. Chavala's appointment... he told me that my right kidney is approximately double the size of my left one. The discoloration is within the kidney. Also, a lymph node is showing signs of being affected. I did not understand whether the doctor was referring to node or node(s). The MRI was not a good image, so Dr. Chavala was going to walk it over to Kadlec Hospital Radiology to get an opinion. While at this appointment a test was completed to view the inside of my bladder. There was no cancer found there. Yes!

This coming week, as soon as can be scheduled, a biopsy of both the node and kidney will be completed. I am not a patient person, want answers now, and of course there has to be a holiday connected to this weekend.

Update:  biopsy is still waiting...
