Another Colonoscopy


Some title huh? Yes, I am off to my daughter's tomorrow to go with her for another colonoscopy. I was trying to remember just how many there have been, and thinking she is far too young to have had to do this over and over again. As always, I will be praying for a better than hoped for report. I didn't realize until the two of us talked the other week, that we have been doing this together for 9 years, with the exception of actually being able to skip last year. It has been hard, but we do have some pretty funny memories together. She is the one to tell me sometimes you just have to laugh to get through it. I have actually had a harder time laughing than she has. This time there is talk of a drug treatment that I am not excited about. The hardest part for me, is knowing that God CAN heal her, but His answer has been NO. I shared with another friend that His ways are not my ways, and although I don't understand, he always knows best. I will be away until Monday, so have a wonderful weekend. Jackie

So blessed! said...

I will surely be praying for a good report. Keep your chin up and your eyes to the skies...he will be with you through it all! HUGS!

Yes, his ways are better and it is not always easy to understand that--I think it is even more difficult when we see someone we love suffering though something hard.

I will still be praying for both you and your daughter.

I've got you all in my prayers. Does your daughter go to Shands in Gainesville? I've got two sister-n-laws that work there.

It sounds like your daughter is handling her trials with patience and Grace. She is an inspiration.

Certainly praying for both of you - praying for good results, peace with whatever treatment you decide to follow and that God gives you a good weekend together! What a blessing that you have one another...(not everyone is so blessed).

Praying for you this weekend.

I'll be praying for you this weekend, too. Your daughter reminds me a lot of myself...very strong....or at least that's what my friends say about me as I struggle with MS! Blessings to both of you...she's right, you have to laugh!! :)

Hi Jackie~ I'm catching up with your posts and am so sorry that your daughter is going through this sickness! And, I'm sorry that God's answer, so far, has been "no". We don't understand why He says "no" when we desperately want a "yes" - but how thankful I am that we can trust Him even in the "no's". Heb. 13:5 - He will never leave nor forsake us!
Love to you and your daughter... Jennifer
