Great and wonderful news!

Where do I begin????
I see all of these grandparents having such an awesome time with their grandchildren and I wonder where in the world they get all of their energy and strength and so on. I pray that I am up to it but I am sure that I will be! Oh yeah!! *smile*
Soooo....last Saturday morning around 5:30am the phone rings, the answering service picks up and we hear a groggy yet happy Daniel saying, "Hey Mom...hey don't have to get up, but I just wanted to let you know that you are going to be grandparents." Talk about being wide awake all of a sudden! We were! *smile* Erin goes to the doctor Monday to find out when her due date is and so on. I'll keep you posted!!! I told the kids that there isn't a treatment, shot, or pill that could make me feel any better than this wonderful news!!
Now for the next wonderful news! I don't have to have a hysterectomy!! Dr. Keller, my family doctor, had examined me, I had gone for the pelivc ultrasound, then back to Dr. Keller for the results where he told me that I was indeed going to have to have a hysterectomy. So he sent me to Dr. Detty, who is a gynecologist and who would be doing the surgery.
Well, last Wednesday night we had an awesome service at church. The Lord met with us in such a beautiful way and I went down to be prayed for. I came back up on the platform and just stood by the keyboard, worshipping my precious Saviour and asked Him humbly if He could just touch me so that I wouldn't have to have surgery because of my back being the way it is. I can only say that I felt something release inside of me when I prayed this way. I felt a load lift from my spirit. I knew that no matter what happened, I was going to be alright. So, the next day I go to my appointment with Dr. Detty. He is the OB that delivered Daniel 21 years ago and he is just an awesome doctor. He examined me and proceeded to tell me that he had some good news for me. Everything was okay! Everything was where it was supposed to be! I didn't need to have a hysterectomy!!! Hallelujah and to God be the glory!!! I am so thankful. God is so good to me. *tears* Doesn't He always step in right on time? I am so thankful that I can trust Him to know what is best for me. Oh, just to walk with Him means everything to me. *tears*
He IS my precious healer. I won't question why my back is still the way it is but I know this one thing....."I am trusting in Christ in alone......I am trusting in Christ alone....Since His faithful love I've known.....I am trusting in Christ alone." If you go to, click on their media archives, click on Musicfest 2007, then click on Nancy Grandquist, you can listen to this song. It is so worth the effort! God Bless!

Oh! My! Jewel! What a wonderful "non-wake-up" call!!! Give the kids a hug for me if you happen to think about it!


And YAY!!! on your healing news! God is SOOOO good!

Well, well, well. This surely is a good news, I always like to hear that somebody doesn't have to have hysterectomy!

As for your back, I'm sure there are all kinds of advice, exercises, and utensils that can help you with that. Prayer will be helpful too, I think, in your particular case!

Good luck and all the best to you!

Visit to watch the HERS Foundation's "Female Anatomy" video and empower yourself with information about what women consistently report after hysterectomy.

It's your right to know,

Awww, Sis. Jewel! I am SO happy for you. God is right on time. Here's to being healed and being a future new grandma! :-)

Congratulations one becoming a grandma! How exciting! I can't wait! Though it will likely be several years yet as none of my kids are married...but I think one might be working on that in the next year or two! :-) (Marriage, that is).

And that is such great news that you don't have to have a hysterectomy! Amen!! Thank the Lord!

Hi Theresa...can you believe it? Is it as wonderful as they say it is? I just know it is going to be! *smile*
Hi Dusko....thanks for stopping by. Thank you for the good wishes!
Hi Chantell....yes, He is an on-time God! And unfailing in all of His ways! Aren't you so thankful that He orders our steps?
Hi Barbara....thank you, thank you...*smile*...your times a-comin'! Yes, the Lord is wonderful and worthy of our praise continually, hm?
