My dream for the past 12 1/2 years was for God to deliver me from this MS that has been slowly taken over my life, especially the past 3 years. MS is a chronic,
Then along comes something called CCSVI. In February, my son Biff had mentioned something about it to me in February when we were visiting my very ill father in TN. I put it in the back of my mind because I had to focus on Dad and the MS Walk coming up at the end of March, but I remembered the name of the pioneer who discovered it: Dr. Zamboni, just like the ice resurfacing machine. I won't forget that I thought, and I didn't.
As I began my months long inquiry into CCSVI, I quickly discovered that not only was it a scientific discovery of monumental proportions, it was also an amazing
Is it a God-thing? I believe it is. I believe with all my heart that CCSVI is the miracle that so many of us with MS have prayed for, for so many, many years,
I had the procedure done last Thursday. This is Tuesday, and I am greatly improved. My right side which has always been weaker, is now stronger. I am able to put my own shoes on, which may seem like a small thing to you, but to me and my husband it is HUGE. I can lift my right leg into bed without having to pull in it to bed. I can get up out of a chair quickly and like a normal person, which I haven't be able to do in years. I am able to walk again with my tri-walker and hope to be able to be back on a cane after I do a few months of physical therapy. After all, I have to retrain myself how to walk now. And, even though I'm using my small walker, I'm walking like a normal person, bending me knees, which I haven't been able to do in years. My fatigue level has been greatly reduced and now I can stay up for 5 to 6 hours instead of the normal 2-3 hours and then falling down from exhaustion. I am expect that to get better as well! Thank you Jesus~~
I still have my neuropathic pain, but it slightly decreased and it is changing. I am dreaming again for the first time in years. My speech is better, I feel the cognitive fog lifting and I'm thinking more clearly and more quickly. All these things may seem pretty insignificant to you, but if you have MS these are the little things you do everyday that are taken away from you, slowly but surely, year after year as the disease progresses. Having some of those back with the hope of more and more coming down the road is definitely a God-thing. A Praise the Lord thing - a Thank you Jesus thing. A Praise Report to the Utmost! I am rejoicing in that now, my suffering is coming to an end. I am expecting a total miracle and complete healing from my CCSVI surgery.
So, CCSVI is my miracle, sent straight from God, through a passionate doctor named Paulo Zamboni. I am thanking the Lord for the many blessings I continue to receive. I have always tried to give the Lord the Praise in all situations, good and bad, but even I have to admit that in the past years, it has seemed like more and more of them appeared to be bad.
But our God is forever Faithful. When you honor Him, He does come through, in HIS PERFECT TIME, not ours. Our job is to keep praying, keep obeying, keep looking up to Him for our answers. Hang in there friends~~God always delivers, In His timing, He will answer.
My verse for today is from 1 Peter 1:1
" In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you have to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith--of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire--may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed."
My prayer for today:
Oh dear Lord, God of this universe,
Thank you so much Lord for Dr. Arslan, and my successful CCSVI surgery last Thursday. Thank you for answering prayers. I do Praise you Jesus for Dr. Zamboni, I do praise you for these brave doctors who are pushing the boundaries to help those of us suffering with this terrible disease. Thank you for giving me your strength to get me through many tough times living with MS. I pray that you will give your strength to everyone who is suffering with this and all diseases Lord. Be with them Lord. Open
the doors of their heart so they may feel the peace and love that only you can bring. As always Lord God, You get all the Honor and all the Praise and all the Glory.
In Jesus Name I pray,
