welcome miracle monday readers

today, i will tell you about my mom. when my mom was 31, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. (she had never had HPV) she had to have a radical hysterectomy (her uterus, cervix, and lymph nodes were removed, but she was able to keep her ovaries), and recovered. she didn't tell us (kids) that it was cancer, my dad told us...after her surgery. they had been split up for about 6 months when she had her surgery, but he still wanted to be there for her...and us.

this isn't the miracle.

two years ago, my mom was having problems with pain in her back and abdomen. she went to the doctor and found out she had a cyst or tumor on her ovary the size of a softball. she had already had problems with her thyroid having tumors (non cancerous), but the doctor was sure that she had ovarian cancer. she had surgery, the doctors took out the tumor and both her ovaries, and thank God it wasn't cancer. the doctors were mystified. she had been so sure she would have to tell my mom she cancer. my mom said, "God told me it was just a tumor, and i was going to be ok."

A tumor the size of a softball on an ovary is mind-boggling considering an ovary is about the size of a grape. Thank God for your mom's miracle.

KEEP BELIEVING
