Prayers for Bella & myself
« on: April 05, 2010, 09:13:41 AM »
CHRIST IS RISEN!

What beautiful words.  I can surely use your prayers for my other dog, Bella, and myself.  Great Friday I received the results of her biopsy of the lump on her chest.  Bella has a Mast Tumor.  Once we have it removed they will do a biopsy to see if its benign or not.  Needless to say, I'm a basketcase.

Lord, have mercy and provide peace to this brother/sister.  (I'm sorry, I don't know if you are a man or a woman.)

It doesn't help that I am such a worry-wart.  Until the tumor is removed and the biopsy comes back, I pray, benign, I'll be losing sleep & hair.  Its a miracle that I don't have an ulcer yet, tho my hair is getting greyer and grayer by the moment.  I guess having kids will do that to you...lol..the 4-legged ones as well as the 2-legged ones...lol  If it wasn't for my faith I don't know where I'd be right now.  Thank God for God, His saints, and His sons and daughters (all of you).

Just got off the phone, with Bella's vet.  Tomorrow night I take her in for blood work, in preparation for her operation this Friday.  If all goes well she will come home that evening. Then by Monday I* should have the results of her biopsy.

Its  3:36pm and I got tired of waiting.    Bella is just coming out of the anesthesia and doing fine. The vet will call me in an hour for when she might be coming home.  Thank God she made it through the operation. Thanks for all the prayers.

Just got off the phone with Dr. O'Bell and Bella can come home tonite.  The results of the biopsy should be back by next Friday. Thank God!
