We just received word that our biopsy results came back inconclusive and that we are scheduled for a much more invasive (aka-definitely will be under anesthesia and not just sedated-yay?) surgery next Tuesday morning in Greenville.
This is very disheartening as we are just SO ready to know something definitive. But, we are grateful that the doctors and pathologists and all the different ologists are being thorough. We KNOW that this is not by accident or by chance. We KNOW that this is exactly how the Lord has ordained this step of the journey to be. But, we can’t help but be really sad, disappointed and annoyed.
This time, my actual orthopedic oncologist will do the surgery and if-what he was afraid of initially-my arm breaks, he will be prepared to put plates and screws in at that point.
He’s going to be calling and discussing all this with us later this evening, so just pray that our conversation with him goes really well. Thank you again for all the prayers that have been prayed for us amidst this. We are so humbled and blessed and aware that many others have worse situations they find themselves in.
“Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, and our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.”
