God is great and God is good
He makes all thing work as they should
he reminds us that He’s here
and watching, caring when we fear
I will sing a happy song, HE will be Praised!
God is GREAT, I shout with both arms raised!
God will always be my guide
and I will forever say with pride
that I am His and He is mine
and continue to let my little light shine!
The report from my specialist, Anna A. Kulidjian, MD, was super encouraging. She is a really smart, kind and gentle doctor. She is absolutely beautiful inside and out and before she left she gave me a huge hug. She told ME that she was so thankful that we met!
I know without any doubt that God guided us to her in His special way. She actually knows and has worked with my specialist, Dr. Michael Gross, back in Nova Scotia who operated on me when the tumor was found 17 years ago. How crazy is that?!
She gave me a cortisone shot for the pain. She said that I have acute arthritis that is shocking for someone so young. She said that the mass that has developed in my distal femur is something we must investigate further but she is really convinced that it isn’t the Giant Cell Tumor coming back. She said that they usually only come back within the first 5 years of diagnosis, not 17!
I have to get an MRI, collect my records from the hospital in Halifax and have a chest x-ray done. Nothing was said about having a bone biopsy – I was really apprehensive about that.
So as you can guess, my husband and I sang God’s praises the whole drive home! We feel so encouraged and so happy. Plus, the cortisone shot gave me a relief that I haven’t felt since I was a kid! Walking with no pain? are you kidding me? It’s so real and so amazing. The only thing I regret is not doing this sooner!
1 Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s
