Gonna Fly Now

by Melanie on July 15th, 2010

Great news about my PET Scan results today.  According to the test results my cancer is only in my left breast and in my armpit but nowhere else in my body.  Woo hoo!!!  Hopefully this doesn’t mean it’s in too many lymph nodes, if any.  But we’ll find out for sure tomorrow during surgery.  Prayer and positive thoughts are much needed!

So tomorrow is the big day.  Surgery.  But I’m actually feeling good.  I’m positive.  I can do this!  I’m actually playing the Rocky theme song right now while I’m typing this.  Whatever, call me cheesy.  I don’t care.  It’s working for me!  I’m about to get in the ring with cancer and I have no doubt the big C is going to be going down for the count!  Bring it!

    So today is the big day. I’ve said my prayers for you. You are going to be just fine. I was thinking about this hair thing too…

    Speaking for someone who shaves his head errday let me tell you… it’s a pretty sexy feelin. You feel temperature changes quickly. Here’s some sexy bald thoughts.

    1. Just tell people you have a REALLY tight ponytail.
    2. You see Kanye’s woman? she’s bald and got a great Boo-tay!
    3. It’s easier to make the carpet match the curtains (wurd)
    4. Three words: Jean Luc Picard
    5. Three more works: Capt. Jake Sisko

    Hey there are a lot of sexy bald Star Trek people. Even that chick in the first motion picture! You could start a trend!

    Anyways, you go with Rocky I go with Star Trek. Either way: The hero wins in the end. You’re my hero chica, and you are gonna be just fine.

    Mucho Love Baby! See you soon!

    I remember when I heard you had cancer. It was like someone knocked the wind out of me and I couldn’t breathe.The airport began to spin and I just stood there. Stared at the text message until my phone started to beep low battery. As I boarded the airplane to Japan. I remember crying the whole 24 hours there and drinking jack and coke. I started thinking about the first time I first mert you guys and how nice you were to me. The times we would sit in family room and talk for hours about everything stupid and laugh at everything stupid. Then I realized” my little sister had boob cancer”. I cried some more as I walked in the Japanesse airport. Then “He” spoke to me and said this for my glory and her perfection. Do not shed a tear but pray and fast and watch her grow. Let her faith inspire you so your faith can be perfected. All of my chidren are interlinked what I have done, no man can undo. I thought about what God was saying to me on that last portion. I went through a marriage that failed,had people under me die and I been involved with classified terrorist operations and no of that pain and glory compared to the love I feel for my Beatty/Bernhart family or pain I felt when I heard the news. Then I began to understand the value of true family love. I have gone years without talking to my extended family but everytime I come home. It’s like a I never left. Mel you and your family have inspired me to heights you wouldnt believe and I see the true hand of God in all of you. Sitting back on the sidebar looking in. I see miracles, I see love in it’s puriest form. Cancer has changed you but it’s you through your strength and faith that’s changing the world around you. I love you and all of you guys. HOOORAAHHH

    We need to take seriously what Justin said about “your strength and faith . . . changing the world around you.”

    I have been so grateful to God to see you drawing closer to the Lord and know that this is where your strength is coming from. But this is only the beginning. If you, or any of us, come through this unchanged spiritually (for the better, in leaps and bounds), it was all a waste, and I don’t want to see what you have sacrificed wasted. None of us can just continue living our lives as before; the spiritual change must be evident daily in our lives.

    Romans 4:20 (New International Version)
    Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,

    James 1:22 (New International Version)
    Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
