Thankful – #45

I am thankful for the healing of the hole in my stomach, I am thankful for the healing of my stitches in the center of my stomach, I am thankful for the healing of the stitches from my port placement, I am thankful for the healing of my abscess surgery and I am thankful that I have not had any complications for my colostomy.  My prayer is that I go through chemotherapy infusion with no surprises.  Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.  Colossians 4:2. Thank God, I have made it through two more phases.  Remember (Blog #13), when my cancer plan was explained to me, I marked the events(s) by phases.  Phase I, 6 weeks of chemo pills and radiation; Phase II, 6 weeks recovery from chemo pills and radiation; Phase III surgery and recovery; Phase IV chemotherapy infusion; Phase V chemotherapy recovery; Then I would go back to work.  Well, that was not God’s plan. I had to add another phase for my abscess surgery.  I was actually going through 3 phases at the same time, healing from cancer surgery, healing from abscess surgery and having my first chemo infusion.  I also had to add a phase for my (not planned) abscess surgery.  But, Thank God, through His grace and mercy, I have made it through.  Phase I, II, III and IV complete.  Thank God, for my healing!!  Now I have Phase V (chemo infusion) and Phase VI (chemo recovery. Prayerfully, there are no more surprises. For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11. Oh, remember my plan to go back to work, well that was not in God’s plan either.  Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” James 4:15.
