no, not a Disney character...
but the hematological disorder
also known as
Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance ;
it's either that or "smoldering myeloma".
While the abnormal results of my blood work are still being discussed
as to their classification,
the lesions in my skull have conclusively been labeled as benign
and I am more pleased than I can say
I do NOT have multiple myeloma!
It felt like a benediction to hear the oncologist say
"For some folks, including you, it's normal to be abnormal!"
No one will ever convince me the outcome is not directly related
to the power of intercessory prayer!
I have an over active immune system that MUST be calmed down...
and, to that end,
I'll be starting new medication at the end of the month,
but, it seems God isn't quite ready for me yet!
I can't tell you the relief I feel.
I've apologize to all for the drama of the past few weeks;
I was acting in good faith
on bad information.
And, as impatient as I was with waiting for the work up to be complete,
it's behind me now.
I'm concentrating on enjoying the Silent Nights of the season
and practicing gratefulness for all the love that surrounds me!
Thanks be to God!
