Thanks for your prayers.My surgery and Test results...

So last week as many of you know I had surgery for a lymph node that was swollen. I had began getting sick really way back in the summer and had been through 3 courses of various Antibiotics to try to clear up what ever it was that was making me sick. I went through many times where I felt like I was poisoned. I had dizzy spells, fevers and any cold that was going around or flu I got. Even though I had my flu shot I still got the flu. I was given a CBC along with a few other test that all came back fine except for a high white blood count on one test. (any little sickness can make your white cells high) I was then given a  ultrasound of the lymph node and found out there were 3 and not just one while at the Cancer Center.  I was given every blood test that you could imagine at the Cancer Center and in the mean time he sent me to a Dr to get a biopsy done. (all this time I was on 2000 MG of antibiotics as another doc thought I may have an infection in my abdomen  as it was painful above the pain from my possible adhesion's)   Adhesion's are scar tissue from my C sections that I had. One in 2009 and one in 2010  We do not know for sure that I have them until he does a surgery to look around.. Anyways... So rather those last round of antibiotics cleared this up or it is the removal of the largest lymph node I feel 100% better. As in I no longer feel poisoned. All the last round of tests came back good and now all I have to worry about is this pain from my scarring from the c section. There are a few options. a surgery to look around and see if there are adhesion's, Clean up the scar tissue or if no adhesion's maybe just physical therapy for my muscles and back to get rid of this pain. I am just grateful that there is not any cancer or any of the other things they were checking me for.   Thanks to everyone who was praying for me.  It really meant a lot to me. The church we started attending Fremont Wesleyan was very nice to pray for me and call to check on me. I even had a person that works with Mom Central send me an email and wish me well when she was looking at my blog for acceptance into their blog program.  (a consulting company I have become affiliated if that is the proper wording)  My mom told me that her church in Wisconsin had me on the prayer list after I told her my results she had to stop by her pastors. Then there were some of the ladies from Simple Woman's Day book who were praying for me as well as my friends that I only talk to on Facebook. I really thought it was neat that I had people that were praying for me all across the WORLD...  I was going to say country but realized some were from other countries. How Awesome of a feeling. Call me strange but it put a smile on my face and I do believe in the power of prayer. Sometimes in this life I have had times where I knew that God was the only one that could help me... Okay Ramble Ramble trying to get that all out before my pain med I took makes me tired. Someday I will tell you  a story about my daughter Sierra  spina bifida Myelomeningocele and the power of prayer...
