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.
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 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.
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.
