I've thought about posting this or not.... Well, about 12 hours of thinking, and I only do it to you as a request.
Friday Denver got an MRI. He has a bump on his forehead that he has had for well over a year now. We got an MRI last year and it came back normal. I still was not satisfied with that, so I asked Denver's doctor about it again. - He wanted to re-check it.
From that moment I was nervous. Nervous of what may come. I waited about 3 weeks until the appointment and when yesterday was finally here, God gave me peace. We waited at the hospital for about 2 hours, and although I was anncey, I had total peace. We went home and went on with our day. They told me I would get the results by Wednesday.
At home, Denver and I were enjoying my time home from work. I took the full day off so I was loving being home and playing with him! My best, and dearest friend, Jessica is in town so she came by to visit us after our nap.
While she was there I noticed I had a couple of missed calls and voice mails. (on my old cell, I no longer use)
It was Denver's doctor.
He left a message saying that there was something on Denver's MRI. He has several neurofibromas on his cranium and wants us to see a neurologists. These are small tumors caused by the nerve disorder both he and I have. (Neurofibromatosis or NF) I broke down. God had placed Jess at my house at just the right time. She held me, and was my rock. His doctor said on the message that he did not know if it would require surgery or not - although if nothing else, we might think about cosmetic surgery. Also a tidbit of information, it is very rare that these neurofibromas are.......bad. In most cases they are benign - though they can still cause vision loss, pain if they are putting pressure against a nerve and other problems. (learning disabilities, hearing loss..)
My request to you. My Plea to you is PRAY. Pray as hard as you can that things are ok and that God places His hands on Denver and makes him strong and able. Make him clean.
Thank you Jess, for being there. You always seem to do that - no matter how far away you live.
I was in a Hallmark store today and I bought this. It's called Angel's Embrace.
I saw it and tears welled up in my eyes because I know that God and His angels are holding Denver like this. I bought it, and it is sitting on my nightstand for a daily reminder that God IS IN CONTROL.
I'll update as I know more. In the meantime....
