I love to laugh... but this time, I need to share something so amazing...its serious. Natalie and I met one year ago today at "the 310". Ok, now for the serious part. Natalie had surgery this week to get her gall bladder removed. She has recovered from the surgery and resting with her parents by her side. Her surgeon called her at home yesterday to share some interesting news. After the surgeons removed her organ, they could not see with the naked eye if this was the cause of her chronic pain. Sometimes it can very difficult to see an organ not functioning correctly from the outside. Doctors could not scientifically confirm the cause of Natalie's stomach side pain until now. After the surgery, the organ was taken into a lab and cut open for further research. It was discovered that the organ was inflamed and abnormal. This confirms that the pain she had been having since she was 12 years old, was the major culprit. In other words, the organ was causing her severe pains all these years and thankfully doctors were able to discover it. Natalie's parents had been searching for a cure for a long time.
Our prayers have been answered. For it was by the prayers of many in the church who care for her that we can rejoice. The bible says, "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God" Philippians 4:6. Natalie is doing well, walking and eating enchiladas. That's a good sign. Amazing that God will answer prayers. For there is only one God and He can do it all. This is the evidence.
