Round 5 – Day 28 – I Surrender
is one of the greatest needs in your spouse's life right now? Is there a
need you could lift from their shoulders today by a daring act of sacrifice on
your part? Whether the need is big or small, purpose to do what you can
to meet the need.”
Sleep was again rough. I woke up at 200am coughing
and remembering my husband now has a motorcycle. Cried a bit then fell back
asleep for a couple more hours.
His presence was with me from the get go today
starting with my devotions—surrendering worry.
are worried and anxious we don’t really accept His lordship, do we? If we have
really submitted to Him we trust Him to handle our lives. They are in His hands
and whatever He chooses to do with them is all right with us even if His
will is difficult. The past is His, the means to live it are His, and the
outcomes are His. This is what surrender is all about. And if we’re really
surrendered, we’re not worried about it.
Perfect…perfect…perfect. Exactly what I needed to
hear. Unfortunately my anxiety didn’t subside completely when it came to the
biopsy. However, He was with me. I know it.
Check in was at 700am and procedure at 800. Took my
vitals and started a breathing treatment to open my airways and numb my throat.
The essence of the procedure is giving you some meds to make you “sleepy,”
stick a tube down your throat to take a look around and do some scrapings. What
I was not so keen on was the only being “sleepy” part. Why not just completely
knock the patient out? That is how any other intrusive procedure like this I’ve
When the breathing treatment was over I could not
swallow because of being numb. This is what started my anxiety. I asked God to
please knock me out. When they had me lie on the bed I told them straight up, “I’m
not going to lie I am having some anxiety right now.” As soon as they hooked me
up to the heart monitor they saw exactly what I was talking about. My heart
rate was in the 120s and as much as I tried taking slow breaths it wasn’t going
down. They gave me the rest of the numbing medicine I needed for my nose,
mouth, and throat and then finally the “sleepy” drugs. That was the absolute
last thing I remember. I was out cold. I woke up in the recovery area and was
later told that in the middle of the procedure I was coughing so badly they had
to sedate me more. I do not remember any of it. Praise God!! As for the results
– one of the biopsy tests will take a week to hear back on and the other two
weeks. I’ve been praying they come sooner than later, but whatever His plan – I

I did a lot of sleeping when I got home. This
evening I saw a text from my husband wishing me happy anniversary and asked how
the appointment went, so I let him know.
This was one of those days I don’t know if the dare
was done, but our anniversary was unfortunately sacrificed.
Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby! Praise God you got through the procedure. I pray God will help them figure out what's wrong. Perhaps you can suggest a belated celebration?
You are courageous. So glad you got knocked out , girl. I swear I have physical reactions to your entries lololol! I go through or have gone through so many things you share, that it puts me there. Wavelengths, baby, wavelengths. Love you, Gem. You are in His hands. I always feel it strongly when I read your thoughts.
But if I recall, this is the first initiated "happy" anything he has done. That is a blessing in itself.
