Dear Brothers & Sisters,
I was diagnosed with “ Aqustic Neuroma” a slow growing tumor of the Nerve that connects the ear to the Brain on the 12th of October, 2011. It was all reveled after I had done MRI which the doctor requested, since I was unable to hear from my right ear which I had over a period of time, causing no trouble except deafness in my right ear but no Dr, would give me any medication without a MRI report
On receiving confirmed reports about my sickness and the outcome of the surgery, my family & I were shattered. As the Tumor was large in size (3CM) which was almost resting on my right Brain Stem, it was not possible to be taken off by other methods other than through surgery which was going to take 8 hrs. On the same day of consultation we decided to get myself admitted to hospital on the 15 th & have the surgery done on the 17th Oct., 2011. Since coming home, I found myself shattered, scared & depressed losing hope, not knowing what the future holds for me & my family in terms of my health.
I continued praying to my Lord, my Creator & whom my whole future lies with, to give me the strength, courage & free me from all fears & of Pain. Whilst, O Lord keep holding my hand through my 8 hr surgery to be a success. My testimony will not be complete if I do not mention that till the final second that I remember lying tensed up on the operating bed, I surrendered my surgery to my Lord & asked the lord to work through my surgeon in all ways by not complicating my condition through and after the operation. My surgeon confirmed that many of my facial Nerves were wrapped around the tumor, which had to be gently taken off without causing damage since it could have caused permanent disfigurement to my face. I Praise & thank my Lord that this too was a success.
It was a day later, that I woke up semi conscious to find myself on life support lying in the ICU. I was told by my Husband & Doctors, that my tumor was removed successfully & Praise The Lord the Greatest News was that it had No Traces of being malignant., This was also confirmed by the Biopsy reports thereafter. Though, the Operation left me paralyzed completely on my right side which the Doctors confirmed that I will overcome with time & Exercise, which I Praise the Lord has been a success, with NO Psycho therapy. Since my Dr. was happy with my progress after the operation, & my High Pressure I had been diagnosed since the birth of my youngest son, was normal, & my Cholesterol level was under control the life support was taken off in 2 days, and I was transferred to a room on the 3rd day, I was brought home
on the 08th day of my surgery, & given no medication to be taken other than a Panadine if I do have any ache or pain. I had my monthly checks with my Doctor, who requested me to start on my office work from Home in the 2nd month, which I did. The Post MRI was done at the 3rd month & on consulting my Doctor, I was informed that everything was clear & the reports were normal. It was confirmed that I could get back to my normal life, repeating the MRI only annually. I Praise & Thank the Lord for his Wonderful works in healing me & granting me my Normal Life Back with No complications.
It is 7 ½ months now & with the Grace of My Lord, I see myself Recover on a Daily Basis, though, I have a little discomfort at times which is bearable & I know for a Fact that MY LORD IS PROTECTING ME & GIVING ME THE STRENGHT TO FACE EVERY CONDITION WITH CONFIDENCE, WHILES TOUCHING ME & HEALING ME. I further like to mention that since getting back home, I would listen to the “ Four Step Retreat “ CD on a daily basis, receiving an Inner Healing and at times when I felt Depressed & Sad, all I did was Listen to the same “ Prayer CD”, for comfort & relief. I continue listening to it every Morning while Driving to Work & I find that it Inspires me each time I listen to it.
Lord I Praise & thank you for Empowering, Lalith Thatha & the Loyal Servers in the “Community of The Risen Lord”, in recording this CD. I, PRISE & THANK YOU LORD JESUS, MOTHER MARY & MY GURDIAN ANGEL.FOR THIS WONDERFUL HEALING, WITH NO PAIN & SUFFERING.
