I am going to start with the biggest one because it is truely the most memorable.  This happened over the course of a week in August of 2001.   I had been feeling sick for about three to four weeks, the er at the hospital was treating me for acid reflux.  When going to the doctor for my checkup,  He referred me to a cardiologist and a stress test.  A test that I failed miserably .  I was ordered not to work again unti after the heart cath.  That didn't go as well as I hoped either.  They wouldn't let me go home.  they had found blockages in 2 main arteries that surrounded my heart.  Going home at that time could have been fatal.  They also could not operate right away because I was severely anemic.  I was in the hospital 4 days before the surgery.  I was scared.  All I could do was cry.  I was afraid I would never see my kids again.  I couldn't even go home to say goodbye.  Life was an uncertainty for me, and my faith was extremely shaken.  One special nurse was extremely nice,  She always called me Dear one, and Told me to have faith in the Lord and the power of his might.  I started to pray,  I wanted to go home.  Finally they scheduled my surgery, a double bi-pass.  I set a fleese before the Lord.  I wanted a flower.  It could be any kind of flower : a drawing of a flower, a flower on a dress, a flower on a card, anything, just tell me I am going to be ok and see my kids again.  I did not tell any one but God, not even my husband.  The next morning  with the mail a card arrived from a lady at my church,  my first flower.  Then a lady from social services came in and she had the flowered dress,  My pastor came to visit and he wore a flowered tie,  all kinds of flowers came flowing into my room all day.  God didn't send me one flower he sent me the whole garden to tell me he loved me and was in control.  The surgery went fine, I was home 4 days after.  

Have these flowers come since,  all the time, just when I am at my lowest.  When I was worried about my son, a young girl ran up to me with a flower in her hand handed it to me said "love ya mom" and ran back.    This last surgery I had back in January, I had the sence of impending doom.  I was sure I would never live through it, They had to remove a tumor from my pancreas.  I had my scheduled date but was ready to back out I was so scared.  Once again I prayed a fleese to God, and told no one.  Only this time I wanted a special flower, and just one.   It had to come from a lady that used to go to our church, her name was Nelda, and she was very special, because she was the first to teach me of unconditional Love.  She had health problems and her family had moved her to the state of Indiana.  With in 2 days My surgery was rescheduled to the following week because the dr was over booked,  The day before my surgery I got a card in the mail,  A card with one lily on the front,  a card from Nelda.   Once again I went into my surgery unafraid.  God was with me.  And he still is.little flower

wow...this was beautiful...I think I am in the position of wishing for a flower right about now.  My husband was told yesterday by his family doctor that he was no longer going to give him any prescriptions for his pain medication.  The oncologist has not prescribed pain meds because there has been no chemo yet.  My husband has an appointment with a pain specialist on August 5th but I really don't see how he is going to go that long with nothing.  His next oncologist appointment is on August 4th so the beginning of August will be busy with doctors appointments for us.  I am just beside myself because I want to do something and I know there is nothing I can do but pray.  Lord help us all

NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT HE IS IN SOME SERIOUS PAIN, DOCTORS AND INSURANCE COMPANIES THAT MAKE THE RULES ARE INDEED SOMETIMES MORE HARM THAN THEY ARE HELP...MY PCP TREATED ME FOR ARTHRITIS, KIDNEY INFECTIONS AND MUSCLE SPAZMS BEFORE HE DID A SCAN THAT FOUND THE PANCREATIC TUMOR.....WILL CONTINUE TO LIFT YOUR HUSBAND ND YOU FOR A TRUE MIRACLE...STAY STRONG SISTER HERE IF YOU NEED ME
