The last week has been a whirlwind. It all started last week when Angela developed a cold. What seemed like a common cold turned into so much more. It turned into a crazy week that has included a trip to urgent care, the emergency room, a neurologist, a doctor’s office, a radiologist for an MRI, and ENT doctor. We have heard everything from she could have a cold to meningitis to a tumor. Angela has had blood drawn twice, two IVs, a spinal tap, an MRI, an eye exam, a probe shoved up her nose to look at her throat, and been prescribed three medicines.
So far all the test results have been good, but there are still some things in question. However, I don’t write this blog for people to feel sorry or throw a pity party. I write it because in spite of all that I have seen something crazier this week. I’ve seen Angela hear all these negative reports and not let them phase her. I’m not really sure how you can keep your composure when someone tells you that you may have cancer, but she has been able to do it. Her strength has given me strength.
When I asked her the other day if she had prayed at all, her answer was, “Yeah. All I’ve done is lay around so I’ve had lots of time to pray.” Her strength has come from her faith in Jesus. The positive reports are a result of that faith. Yesterday, I was struggling after leaving the radiologist, so I put in a mix of Planetshakers songs on my way to work. This is the Day came on and it gave me the strength that Angela has. The song says, “This is the day You made so I will give You praise. Whatever comes my way I’ll rejoice in You.”
Angela does not have meningitis or cancer, but there are still things the doctors are looking into. But whatever happens, whatever comes our way, there is one thing Angela and I will always do. We will rejoice in Jesus Christ.
until next time…
