A Happy Ending…

Yesterday was the moment we had been patiently waiting for for the past 9 months. For those of you who haven’t been following along, this year started off with lots of joy as we found out we were expecting our third baby. Then right after that discovery, I went to see and ENT doctor because I had been having issues taking deep breaths these past few years. I never expected them to find anything. So we were shocked when they showed me the laryngoscopy camera footage showing areas they wanted to biopsy. The problem was that anesthesiology didn’t want to do the procedure while I was pregnant. Since I was only a few weeks along at that point, I had to wait until November.

I went home from that initial appointment so discouraged. I had all the worst case scenarios go through my mind. I was in a really dark place, but I didn’t want to let anyone know what I was going through. I would just cry at night when no one else was awake… The thought that I might have cancer terrified me. I never thought I’d have face a “me or my baby” situation, or have to consider not being there for our other kids. But my baby was my number one priority… he was always my choice, and if I had to wait to get my results for his safety, then I would make that same decision to wait over and over again.


At some point during the months of waiting, I decided to stop letting fear into my life. I wouldn’t be able to change the result by stressing over it. And if anything it would just make my life miserable. So I chose to put it in the back of my mind and focus on the beautiful current life God has given me.

I had baby Myles on the 23rd of October, and the biopsy surgery a week ago, and just got the results yesterday. Let me start off by saying thank you all for the prayers & encouragement you all have sent my way.

I can only attribute the calmness I’ve felt during this last month to the presence of God. I can’t explain it, but I wasn’t even worried about it. I mean, we brought all three kids to the appointment. That’s pretty gutsy considering a possible negative diagnosis.

Now for the result: The first words out of my doctor’s mouth were “Good News!”

Everything came back normal & cancer free!!! All the areas they were concerned with were all benign. After all the long months of waiting. I have to go back in 6 months for another check up, but we are in the clear!

I can finally take a deep breath.

With all that said, I am happy to say that this baby boy was worth waiting for all the results. I would do it all over again just to see his sweet little smile.
Thank you again for all the loving thoughts & support that you all sent my way during this time. It was true appreciated! Now if you excuse me, I will be spending all my time kissing and cuddling this little guy.

    I’m so glad you waited. You know, it is believe that the average healthy person “has” cancer multiple times in life but the body heals itself. Maybe waiting gave your body this opportunity. Or maybe the LORD shielded you. Either way, you learned to rest in Him. I’m so glad your health is in the clear! xo

    Wow, I just read thru all your updates and I was literally on pins and needles. I went thru something very similar a few years back when I was pregnant with my son. I was so scared! Mine turned out being my thyroid. I saw many doctors, none who could ease my breathing issues. This may sound out in left field but the only thing that finally eased it, was going gluten-free. Apparently for me, gluten was causing inflammation to my thyroid, therefore causing the restricted breathing. I’m very happy that everything turned out okay with you and that you listened to your gut and put your baby first 😍.

    Thank you so much Myrtle! Wow- how crazy! Our stories are so similar. I did get a thyroid ultrasound (which is what initially lead me to the ENT because they couldn’t see anything wrong) but I’m going to look into that, as I still have issues with breathing. I’ve found that using lavender essential oils helps.
