We don’t know what it is, but we know what it isn’t….it’s not melanoma or anything else the Dermatologist felt we needed to worry about. I liked (really liked) the Dermatologist, great bedside manner and very informative. We go back at the end of August and if it is still there she will do a biopsy. I just can’t tell you how relieved we are. Her guesses were infected hair, poison ivy (strange reaction something to do with it being black, we didn’t fully understand this theory), infected bug bite. Sweet Lyss hasn’t been able to sleep (her worry was about the biopsy, she had no idea of the fear we all had. She told me last night she hasn’t been able to sleep and then today she had really bad butterflies…have I mentioned how cute that child is? THANKS FOR EVERYONE THAT CALLED, EMAILED, TEXTED AND MOST IMPORTANTLY WHO PRAYED TODAY AND ALL WEEK….I praise God today. I decided when I woke up today that I was going to praise God regardless of what happened today. I prayed a lot during the night (like Alyssa I haven’t slept good for a week) and I had a lot of peace today. I have talked to close friends this past week about my fears and how I questioned where my faith was and during the night my mind kept going to Jesus’ words
He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
Somewhere during the night I came to terms that no matter what we found out today, He would get me through it. He would hold my hand, wipe my tears, calm my fears that no matter what a doctor told us today He promised me that with Him all things are possible.
I have to say that last week when I was in my downward spiral my sweet faithful friend said, “Quit beating yourself up, you’re scared. You will find your faith.” THANK YOU SHERRI!
Again thank you to each and everyone of you for your prayers and friendship.
