I am a little bit late getting this up here, but I had my surgery Monday, May 19, and everything went well. I was fine through the whole surgery, passed out afterward, but it was all good. I limped around school for a few days, but now I am walking around fine. I can't wait to get back to my exercise and cycling. We heard back from the doctor last Thursday, and now know that I am cancer free. We will still keep a close watch for any more spots that may come up, but for now cancer free. Praise the Lord.. He helped me through it all and now I'm on my way back to my normal activities.

Got Some News...

I went to the dermatologist on April 24th, and they called back the next Tuesday. They had taken a biopsy of a place on my left leg, and they had the results. They said it came back positive for melanoma. I really didn't know what to think, but I did know that God was in control of the situation. I wasn't scared, upset, or even that nervous. We got the appointment set up for May 19th, so I will be going then to get the rest of the cancer removed. It will leave me with about 1 and 1/2 inches of stitches, but it should heal very quickly. As for the other places, I will have to keep a good watch.

It's so nice to know that even when unexpected not so great things happen, God is there. He will keep you from being knocked off your feet and hold your had the whole time. Its just like you're a little kid again, having someone to hold your hand and tell you when to go and when to wait, you don't have to worry about things coming your way, because you have someone to protect you. Our God is and awesome God!
