Doctors visit & answered prayer

So,as I mentioned earlier I went to the doctor today.I guess I should tell all of you the whole story first.I have been having alot of problems for a long time with a hormonal imbalance I have.I was using birth control pills to correct the problem.Well,after I got saved I decided to go off of the pills and allow God to direct me.Well,in August I ended up in the hospital.I stayed there for 3 days.I needed 3 blood transfusions and a D&C.I ended up back on the birth control pills.I also found a doctor who gave my condition a name.It`s called endometrial hyperplasia.So a few months went by and I ended up having more problems,which brings us to about a few weeks ago.I saw my gyn and she said I could no longer take the pills because my cholesterol was too high.She said the only other option would be to have my uterus out.Well,I was in shock.We don`t have any plans to have more children,but the thought of having my uterus out still made me very upset.So I of coarse took my fears to the Lord.I became more at peace with the idea.I made an appointment with my family doctor to go over everything my gyn said.I was praying in the waiting room that the Lord would give wisdom to the doctor and that hopefully I wouldn`t have to go on any meds for cholesterol.Well,it turns out my gyn read the results wrong.My cholesterol is not dangerously high like she had said. I know I should be upset for her putting me through all that,but I`m grateful.So that`s an answer to prayer.Also,she said I should get a 2nd opinion about any surgery.So maybe I won`t have to go through all of that either!God is good:)

That is soooo wonderful! What a great answer to prayer!!! :)

And...i say definitely stay on the pills as long as you need to. You aren't using them as birth control...they are helping you with a hormonal problem. God provides things to help us! Don't let the life raft pass you by!!! xoxo

Thanks for your comments mama,saved sinner and katy!Katy,I definatly agree with you about staying on the pills.God really braught peace to my heart about that.Because my gyn read the test results wrong,I can`t take them this month though.I will be praying that I don`t start having problems again.Hey remember the woman in the NT who bled for 7 years?Then she touched the cloak of Jesus?Well,that is my hope!Though prayer,and allowing Him to lead,we will get through this:)
