Help Pray With Me!!


I am going to have my 1st mammogram done tomorrow morning at 8:00am, And YES I am terrified, ohhh not of the actual test, just of the results. I have been having pain in both sides of my breasts, and under them. I have put this off for 7 years now. Silly me!! I am sure I am not the only one that has.
I know My Precious Father will be there with me, giving me the strength I need, and as the results come in he will give me the peace I need. I also had to go to the doctor 2 weeks ago, I was seeing this color wheel in my right eye, my feet swelling really bad, and I haven't been feeling well at all. My blood pressure was scary he said, so he put me on medicine with a water pill, Praise Goddddd the color wheel is gone, swelling is gone, and I have been feeling much better. He also wants me to be on cholesterol medicine alittle high too, I have heard that the cholesterol medicine will make you feel sick, yuck I don't want to be sick, so if anyone else is taking it how are you feeling and is it helping??? I am on a no fat, low sodium diet.. I have lost already 14lbs since the doctor visit. If you have any suggestions please feel free to share. I sound like a mess right now, probably I guess cause I am.... Everybody tells me I need to take a break, chill, relaxxxx, you do too much! I told the doctor that and he said DON'T listen to them keep doing what you are doing... I don't know, I just know I am not ready to go just yet, I need to be here for my Mom!
My husband too! But mostly I worry about my Mom, WE are all WE have left of our family.
I appreciate all of YOUR PRAYERS!!! Huggggggsss and Blessings to YOU!!

You're going to be just fine. Sounds as if you have gotten yourself all worked up about this visit. Medicine can work wonders if we take it right and follow the directions. Sounds as if you are doing that. Just relax and know that you will not go anywhere tomorrow that God is not holding your hands. And friends will be praying!

Sharon, I have been on a diuretic for blood pressure (very low dosage) for several years and have had no problems with it.
I did have to take a cholesterol pill my last visit because my cholesterol was a little high and my triglycirides were a little high so I went on a low fat diet for that. I only took the cholesterol pill until I ran out and did not take any more because it made the muscles in my right arm hurt (one of the side effects). It did lower my cholesterol but I'm just trying to watch my diet. I've lost 2 dress sizes.

I did have pain in my breasts not long after my children were born but is was called fibrocystic disease and the doctor told me to take Vit. B6 and Vit E 400 IU. I asked him how long and he said the rest of my life. That was almost 35 to 40 years ago and I'm still taking those vitamins and have had no pain. My daughter called and told me she had finally had a myelogram and she has the same thing, but the doctor did not tell her what to do about the pain. I told her my story and I noticed the last time we saw her that she was taking the vitamins. Just relax and let God have control. I also had some cysts that had to be aspirated. One was sorta big and that did scare me but when the dr. put the needle in fluid came out. What a relief.
Don't worry because God is taking care of you. I get regular exams every year but so far so good. I will be praying for you. I know the feelings your having and I know the relief when I found out I had nothing to worry about and I don't believe you have anything to worry about. God loves you.
From my heart to yours,
AliceE.

Oh sweet Sharon, this makes my heart sad to hear what you have been going through. I will def be praying for you. Don't know if this makes you feel any better, but I have had a mammogram before and I am only 27. Oh how I rem being so terrified at the time. They told me it was fibrocystic breast and that I was fine, but with mom's history I need to start having them every year. Fun Fun. :) Best to be preventative, I guess. :) I love you and am praying for you. Go in peace my dear friend. You know, it passes all understanding...

ps-Please keep me updated. I don't want to start worrying...
Oh wait, God says not to do that. oops. I wouldn't worry. :) Anyways, please know I am praying in faith tonight for you.

I don't want to take lightly worrying cause it's a sin, but I'm just being honest with my 'natural' tendency, but with God all things are possible including choosing faith and not fear. Anways, it's late, I'm tired, and so I'm rambling. I just could keep chatting with you forever. You are so dear to me. Love you!!!

Bless your heart! It's awful to be scared of medical tests. It has always been my motto that until they say something is actually wrong, I'm good! The mammogram will be fine. I am on cholesterol medicine and blood pressure meds and have been for some time. I don't have any side effects that I can tell. You'll feel much better after the test is out of the way! Praying for only good results!

Dear Sharon,

My heart and prayers go out to you dear one. Do not get anxious for God is with you. I know it is easier said than done, but He is the Ultimate Physician and He never leaves your side.

I once had a hard pea-sized lump in my breast that the doctor found when examinig me and I had to go for a mammogram to have it checked out. Waiting for the results was terrifying for me, but that was many years ago. The results came back showing nothing. I went back for another breast exam and the doctor said it was gone. I have to get regular mammograms as my grandmother had breast cancer.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I lift up my sister to you into the highest of heavenlies this day and place her in your loving arms. Father, I humbly come before you and ask that the precious blood of Jesus Christ be poured over and within Sharon from the top of her head to the souls of her feet. May the heavenly blood of the Lord Jesus Christ consume her. Wash her clearn Lord, from the outside in, from the inside out over and over again. Wash away anything that would cause the symptoms that she has been having and I ask for a Divine Intervention and Miraculous Healing for Sharon in the sweet name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. We have strong faith, trust, belief and hope and we stand tall and strong on your Word Father. We claim healing for her, total body healing in the name of Jesus Christ. Bless her with a sweet peace right now Father that goes way beyond her understanding and we thank you in advance for all that is occuring at this time in Jesus precious name. Amen.

I love you Sharon and my thoughts and prayers are being said for you. Rest sweetly and peacefully in Him.

Love, Blessings, Prayers & Hugs,
Alleluiabelle

Dear Sharon, I am so sorry you are going through much difficulty. When suffering much affliction, I sometimes find myself feeling discouraged and helpless. But God's grace is greater than our feelings and fears. He will do to trust!

He is with you even now. Be assured with His peace and love. May you sense the nearness of His presence, and may God deliver you from every trial and heal your body.

Dear Father, Sharon is your own, your daughter, your very beloved. I pray, in Jesus' name, for a special ministry to her at this time. I ask you for health, for healing, for grace, for mercy, for peace, and joy. Deliver her from fear, and give her hope and peace that passes all understanding. I pray that as her eyes are cast on You, your peace will flood her soul, and that through this trial in her life, she will find God her Father and Jesus her Lord faithful and true. Lord, may she know you and have your forever comfort and assurance, for her life, and the lives of her husband and mother are right in the palm of your hand.

In Jesus Name,

Amen

Take care, dear one. God will not fail you! He loves you with love everlasting!

Andrea

Sharon,
Your Immanuel is with you.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Holykisses my friend,
No worries.
Love Lea

Praying my friend! I pray that you will get good answers from the doctor. But I also pray that you will have the peace that passeth all understanding.

Hang in there my friend!
He's not finished with you yet!

Edie said...

Oh Sharon, I'm so sorry I'm late getting here. I began praying for you as soon as I started reading.

Dear Lord, let these truths sink into Sharon's heart and bring her rest and peace beyond understanding.
Don't fret. He is with you. He will take care of you. He will strengthen you. He will help you. He will guide you. He loves you. He will never leave you. He has a plan for you. Do not be anxious or afraid. He is your protecter. Your help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and earth.
In the Powerful Name of Jesus. Amen

Isaiah 41:10 - Fear thou not for I am with thee. Be not afraid for I am thy God. I will strengthen thee, yea I will help thee. I will uphold thee with with my righteous right hand.

Much love to you my friend!

Sweet Sharon, as easy as it is for ME to say, don't worry. Worry will only cause you more pain emotionally and physically. Worry really does have an effect on the body.

I could be totally dumb but I always heard that breast cancer would not "hurt". It's silent. So, I wouldn't worry with it being that.

I have slighly high cholesterol and I'm on just two fish oil pills a day. I guess this is the first step. I'm surprised your doc didn't want to suggest fish oil or flax seed oil and diet before trying the RX. You may suggest that to him/her if the Rx does make you sick. I go back for my six month to see if the fish oil has helped.

Try, try, try not to worry. Remember my post on worry. Presence of worry shows lack of trust. Lack of worry shows presence of trust. Maybe viewing worry as an offense to God would calm your heart and overwhelm you with peace. I don't know. I'm just trying to make suggestions to shift your focus and know that you are in the hands of the GREAT CREATOR... It's going to be okay.

Now email me later this week so I can reply with an "I told you so."
Are ya smiling yet, sweets?
Love,
Paula
