Angie Reed HAD Brain Cancer

God has blessed me in so many ways but I am so excited about no matter what the circumstance that we all may be going through He will always see us through and He has given me an attitude of gratitude which is totally amazing to me for His grace is merciful and I am forever changed and I will never ever be the same

With no prior history and totally unexpected at 49 years old I had a grandmal seizure in the early morning of May 27th 2007 around 2:15 am when my husband came to bed about 1 minute before it happened and was able to hold me over to one side and pray over me until our then 14 year old granddaughter could call 911 along with my daughters and their husbands who all arrived around the same time and after the paramedics considered I was stable since I actually stopped breathing for a second or two and my daughters was able to give them all of my medications because I have been diabetic for some years now and high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I was then rushed to Trinity where I had CT and MRI and drug tests and was diagnosed with a Oligodendrioma Stage 4 where I spent the night and was released on Monday and then a series of miracles continued my youngest daughter worked for a dentist who’s brother happens to be the best neuro surgeon in the world Dr Clark at St Vincent’s

And it takes a long time to get in with any neurosurgeon especially the good ones but his brother made a call to him on Tuesday and he saw me on Wednesday

And told me he couldn’t tell me anything other than what I already knew until I had surgery he said he could do a biopsy or just go ahead and do a craniotomy

And get the tumor totally out I told him at that time I had to pray about it and see another Dr on the following Monday at UAB because my daughter and niece both work at UAB and desperately wanted me to see the head of neurosurgery Dr Market who does research on brain tumors and his nurse is one of my coworkers best friends so I was sure this was the road God intended for me to take feeling confident I went into his office and he insisted on doing a biopsy and pet scan first before surgery

Then he would make a decision on my treatment so as we all went down to get these test he ordered done I was hit by a low blood sugar attack so I went ahead and ask the technicians if I could go downstairs and get something to eat and come back or would I need to sign in first what would be best and that is when I knew that was not the place for me we had ask God for wisdom and he gave it to us right then all at the same time through the lady at the desk she said I would have to come back the following day and they could not see me until they were ready

We left went downstairs and ate and prayed with our daughters about what God would have me to do then went back to Dr Market’s office where they told me they didn’t have time to talk to me, I tried to explain my situation and they were less than caring so we left knowing we would not go back

On the ride home my husband and I almost without saying a word had the same feeling we later knew was from God that I was to go ahead and go to St Vincent’s the following day on Tuesday and prepare for surgery on Wednesday morning this was after lots of folks praying with me and for me and after my church anointing me with oil the Sunday before and praying for me and with me.

So on Wednesday morning with my closest family and friends present I went into surgery at 6:00 am and I went knowing all the possibilities but focused on the one who gave me life and as I waited my turn in the holding area a sweet angel in a seersucker suit passed by and ask if I was having surgery and I said I am, I have a brain tumor and he said he was actually looking for another lady but held my hand and told me he would pray for me I was not even afraid because God was with me every step of the way and kept sending his angels all along the way . They ask me if I needed a little nerve medicine the night before and I said no but thank you my husband could probably use some ha-ha the only way I could withstand this was because I know that either way I was ok however Our Heavenly Father chose to heal me and I was good to go and I tried so hard to instill that in my family and friends especially my kids so they would know mom was well because it is well with my soul. As I awoke in the intensive care unit I had angels who prayed over me who others call nurses and my youngest daughter had made me a prayer tower which you could put your blessings and prayers and words of encouragements in and what a great time I had reading all of those words of encouragement in the weeks to come as I gradually got my vision regulated so I could read. I was reminded of pray for me as I pray for you so often and leaned on lots of different healing verses in Gods word knowing all things work together for good for those who love the Lord with all your heart and soul and mind, I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me because when I am weak He is strong and He has shown himself strong in these recent days and to Him and Him alone I give all The Praise, Glory and Honor and will serve Him all the days of my life. When the tests results came back I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Oligodendroglioma brain cancer and my surgeon was only able to remove 90% of the tumor so I now will take Keppra for seizures for the rest of my life. I continue to have MRI’s (the closed ones which is tough for a claustrophobic person) but again God is so awesome to allow me to withstand through his grace and mercy and until May 18th 2008 every single MRI kept telling us the same message that there were no signs of cancer at all but on that horrific night I again had another grandmal seizure and they found that I had a reoccurance so we are waiting and watching to see God prove himself strong because when I am weak He is strong and He is always and forever able to heal and by the way when the surgeon came out to talk to my family not knowing what to expect he told them I might not recognize them or I might not be able to speak or move my right side which all the glory to God I had no side effects. Since that surgery I have been told by different people who don’t even really know me how they have been praying for me and what a difference prayer makes in all of our lives if we just surrender our will to Our Heavenly Father and get out of his way and be still and know that He is God and trust and obey for there is truly no other way for He is faithful and true to His word all the time ! The Lord has given an amazing responsibility to those whom He has saved. He has called us to be His servants and accomplish His work here on earth. Just think about how remarkable this is: Almighty God, who needs nothing and can do all things, actually invites us to share in all that He is doing to draw people to Himself, to bring His children to spiritual maturity, and to care for those in need. My prayer is that my light so shine that His reflection will be seen through me less of me and more of Him always and forever!

Blessings To you and Always know Our God is bigger than any circumstance !

Testimony - 2 spaces to the left

There are so very many!

Most recently God helped me with my job. There was one area of my job that was taking me an excessive amount of time. I had been complaining to my family, my co-workers, my children, my spouse, and my boss about it for some time. Then I asked God, when I say asked it is really more like I cried out! I don’t want you to think I am some kind of super Christian, I feel like I am probably a black sheep of the family, none the less I am one of His children and He hears me when I pray.

I have to use an excel spreadsheet for part of the application. I had tried to copy and paste the information all one time. It would not fall correctly in the appropriate fields. I was complaining again. “I have too much work. I can not possibly get all this done, yadda, yadda, yadda. I have tried and tried to paste this down all at once, but it just will not work right."

Then I heard, "Put 2 spaces in front of that information." So I did.

Guess what? It worked!

Those two spaces cut my work 2/3 in that area. God is real! God is speaking! God is good all the time! He really does care about the little things! Let all the Glory be to God! In Jesus name, hallelujah!!

When I told my boss my duties were increased ??????

We were believing for healing but God did a miracle.

 Here is Ollis' testimony.  I will let you post it.  Thank you for allowing us to declare what miracle God has done.  Judy
 
Ollis had been having problems with his back since last September and went 2 different times for therapy with the chiropractor but he was not getting better.  He had not even been able to sleep in the bed since April.  I felt like he needed to go get an MRI to see exactly what was going on but we were not prepared for what we would find out.  The MRI showed he had a tumor that had completely surrounded his spinal cord and had already done damage to the T5, T6 and T7 vertebra's.  Since the tumor completely surrounded his spinal cord it went around to where it was right behind his aorta. It would take 2 different surgeries if they could do it. They decided they needed to do more test so they sent him home and told him not to do anything because if he moved the wrong way it could paralyze him instantly.  It took about 3 weeks of doing test to see what was best for him.  In the meantime the doctor put him on steroids because it would help protect the spinal cord.  He lost 24 and 1/2 pounds in 18 days.  Most people gain weight on steroids.  God spoke to me in church after people kept commenting about how surprised they were that he had lost weigh instead of gaining.  He spoke to my heart and said, "Can you imagine what gaining 24 & 1/2 pounds of fluid would have done to his spinal cord?  What we thought was a bad side effect of the steroids was protection from God.  We also prayed that God would give the doctors wisdom on how to treat Ollis. They finally decided not to do surgery but to do 10 radiation treatments.  We were told even the treatments could paralyze him.  After the treatments he had to wait 6 weeks to see what the radiation had accomplished then go back to the doctor.  Two oncologist told us that the kind of tumor he had was very resistant to any kind of treatment and it might take as long as 2 years to shrink the tumor enough to go in and do the Cyberknife (another form of radiation).  On October 1 he went for the MRI.  It took 2 and a half hours to do the MRI and we went to the doctor but she did not have the report yet.  She called about 5 that afternoon and said she had the results and it was good but she was shocked and did not know how to tell us but again said it was good news.  She finally said, "Well, the report is that there is no tumor there anymore."  I asked her, "Do you mean to tell me the tumor that had completely surrounded his spinal cord is gone?"  She said, "That is what I am saying".  I also asked her about the damage on his 3 vertebrae's and she there was no damage anymore.  She said it was if there never was a tumor there. Praise God.  We were believing for healing but God did a miracle.  The doctor cannot take credit for this one.  Even if the radiation did help shrink the tumor it did not do away with it completely and radiation does not restore what has already been destroyed.  She told him she wanted him to stay out of work for 3 more months and take it easy and in January she would do another MRI to make sure everything was still okay.  They found a small spot that the radiologist thinks is just scar tissue from the radiation.  She is having a hard time I am sure believing what she saw since the first report was so bad.  Ollis is not having any pain anymore, he is on no pain medication and he is sleeping in the bed again.  He is doing great.  Had we not prayed for the doctors to be led to do the right thing, they might had quickly wanted to do surgery or something that could have permanently damaged the spinal cord.  During the entire time Ollis was dealing with this, he had scriptures he was standing on and every night he listened to a CD that was nothing but healing scriptures.  If he got up and it had cut off he would turn it back on.  When the enemy would come during the morning hours and tell him he was going to die he would say, "No, I shall not die but declare the works of the Lord."  Receiving your healing is up to you.  God did everything for you to receive when He went to the cross but you have to believe that it IS God's will for you to be healed and that He WILL heal you and then you have to make the decision to receive it.  It took doing something on Ollis' part.  He had to trust in God's Word and meditate on the scriptures about his healing and not let doubt enter into his heart.  Let me encourage you that if there is ANYTHING you are trusting God for, please don't give up on your faith.  God is no respecter of person and what He did for Ollis - He will do for you.  Ollis is not special, he just trusted God.  Don't look at what the circumstances are, how you look or feel, or how things look at the moment.  God still heals and performs miracles.  We truly thank everyone who prayed, called, sent cards and spoke encouraging words.  Keep praying that when we go back in January he will get the report they are looking for and he can go back to work.  God is so good.  Thanks for your prayers, love and support.

GOD IS REAL Testimony from ANGI -

You had asked me to share my testimony earlier and I have tried to write but simply do not know where to start. So I will start at the beginning so you can see just how abundantly God has blessed me thru the years. I was adopted into a very unaffectionate family when I was three days old. My dad suffered with what we now call combat fatigue or post traumatic stress disorder, he was depressed most of my life. No matter how hard I try I still can not please my mom. Because of this home life I had very low self esteem and married young to get away. After several miscarriages the marriage ended in divorce. I remarried for fear of being alone and after several years of abuse and the birth of my son was divorced again. I again remarried and this time we blended our families and all was well for a few years. However we divorced for a brief time and remarried with different attitudes, mostly because I had reconciled with the Lord.
I began a downward spiral into depression when a very dear friend died in the fall of 1998 and a young man I had “adopted” in my heart took his own life the following winter. However the Lord used these tragedies in my life to cause my husband to return to Him and show His mercy and power to me by healing my depression. We helped each other through the loss of his mom and my dad and my son being diagnosed as Bi-polar before my husband died on New Years Day 2008. Since that time the Lord has cared for me in so many ways. It is overwhelming at times when I think of just how merciful He is. I guess I am telling you all of this because there is someone out there who needs to know that there is someone who does know how they feel and will pray for them and be there for them to lean on as the Lord brings them thru. Please feel free to share this with anyone you feel it will help.

Your sister in Christ,
Angi

 

 

The Power of what HE can do for us!

 I have to tell you my story. You have my permission to share this. As a child, I frequently had issues where I would have severe pain in my left side and vomiting. My mom would take me to nearest ER. The doctors would send us home telling her it was gastritis. The doctors never thought to check my kidneys. Even up until high school age, I would wake up every morning sick. One night in May 2005 at the age of 27, my husband toke me to the ER at Brookwood Medical Center. We thought that I had a kidney stone. The doctor ran a series of test including a renal scan. It showed that my kidney was blocked and unable to drain. It is a birth defect that I was apparently born with. The ureter had swollen shut due to infection from the kidney not being able to drain properly and the kidney was shaped like a ball instead of a kidney bean with the inside of the kidney pulled outward like a giant funnel. They immediately took me to the OR and placed a stint in the kidney so that it could drain. It took several months for them to clear up the infection before they could do the reconstruction surgery on the kidney. On August 5th they went in and did the reconstruction of the kidney to make it look more like a kidney and replaced the ureter with a synthetic ureter. During this time frame a giant stone had developed in the bottom of my kidney due to all of the infection and the fact that it was not draining properly. Since then, I have had several small surgeries and procedures to complete the repairs. In June 2008 they went back in and took out the stone which covered the bottom half of my kidney. They were not able to get all of it because it was attached to the inner lining of my kidney. I continued to have pain even after the surgery. A few months ago I finally went back to the doctor for my yearly check up. They discovered that the pain was being caused by a small piece of the stone that had broken lose from the lining of my kidney. All of my friends and family began praying for me. I was scared to death to know that I would have to endure another surgery. This would be surgery number nine since 2005. I have an appointment with the surgeon on the Jan. 20, 2010 for a check up and to schedule the surgery so that they can remove what is left of the stone.
This past weekend, Saturday night to be exact, I was not completely asleep. I felt a hand on my kidney. I was lying on my right side. I felt what I can only describe as a warm hand on my back on my left side. I felt the pressure of someone literally placing their hand on my back to the point of I asked my husband if he saw anything. I knew that it was not him touching me. There was nothing that he could see there. I have not had any pain since then. Sunday night my mother was admitted to the hospital. We thought that she was having a heart attack. Monday night she and I were standing in the bathroom of her hospital room getting her ready for her procedure. She told me that she had been praying that God take my suffering and place it on her because she was stronger than me and could take whatever pain I had been dealing with all these years. The next morning my mom had an arteriogram. It came back clean. No blockages anywhere in her heart. Thank you Jesus!
The only explanation that I have is that HE healed us both. He touched my back and took away the pain, and he took care of my mom.
If this is not a testament to the power of what He can do for us, I don’t know what is.
