Waiting for test results is an overwhelming process. It can take days for a lab to get through your test, followed by however long it takes for the doctor to review them. I always found it best to wait until the doctor calls; trying to google the meaning of each test result never made me feel better.
In early 2020, right as the world was shutting down, my mother noticed a lump on my throat. I didn’t think much of it, but agreed to find a doctor who could check it out. After a biopsy and an ultra sound, the tests were coming back inconclusive. We had also just found out we were expecting our last child, so the hospital thought it best to send us to a larger University Hospital.
I was sent for another round of testing and the doctors decided I probably had thyroid cancer. Normally they suggest removing the thyroid right away, but due to my pregnancy we had to wait 17 weeks. Thankfully, the doctors did not think waiting this time would make any big changes to my health prospects.
I wish I would have leaned on God during this time in my life. I can see now all the ways he showed up for myself and my child. I can see how he surrounded us with people and family, even during a time when we were secluded from one another. We are so blessed to be able to say that both myself and our child are healthy.
Isaiah 41:10 reads, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
I am so glad to have this verse to share with you today. God is walking with you; he is standing by you through all of the pokes and scans. Lean on him and let him take this stress away from you.
I hope these prayers help you, and if you have any specific medical test result prayer requests, please put them in the comments below.
