A year cancer free

Sunday, July 01, 2012

All praise to my Lord Jesus!!! This year has been an interesting one as I was healing from my surgery for cancer and getting the ok to start working out again I found out that I had 2 hernias that needed to be taken care of asap. I thought to myself "Oh No not another surgery" On March 30th I went in to have it taken care of just 9 months from the last surgery. The doctor had to cut me again in the same place I was cut before to place a mesh inside my body. Needless to say recovery from this surgery is taking alot longer than the other one. As Im healing from this recent surgery I had to go in for my 3 month cancer check up. I found out that I am still in remission and all I can say is Thank you Jesus a year being cancer free. I still have to see the doctor every 3 months for the next 2 years to make sure the cancer does not return.

During this time the Lord has continued to bless my life. I had to make a hard decision about leaving my job at the gym. I love all my clients and I cried for hours about leaving them. I love being a personal trainer, the joy I get from watching my clients work hard and lose their weight, seeing the excitement in there eyes and hearing them say for the first time in so many of there lives they thought it was impossible to lose the weight. To cry with them about there success in the transformation of there bodies is something that cant be put into words. They have all been a blessing to me and to tell them I had to leave the gym and take some time to allow my body to heal and get my strength back was so difficult. But I knew it was something I had to do.

Its been 3 months now into my recovery of the hernia surgery and Im back training, not at the gym but training 2 of my clients from their homes. I cant tell you how it feels to be back training and doing what I love to do. Im so blessed and I thank the Lord for everything I go through for its in Jesus that I have STRENGTH to get through whatever storm may come my way. Its in Jesus that he continues to give me JOY and its in Jesus that he is the healer of my body.

No matter what life throws at you know that Jesus sees and knows all that you are going through. Lean on him and trust him he is such a great friend and Savior. ALL GLORY ALL PRAISE TO MY JESUS!!!
