“If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, your healer.” Exodus 15:26
Hi, everyone. I’m Keri. I welcome you here. Here, you will find, that I will be sharing in an open, vulnerable and “real-life” way. It is my prayer that my stories will encourage you and minister to you as you read them. May you find yourself eager to come to know Jesus or perhaps find yourself yearning to know Him more as you read these published testimonies of my life and the lives of our family, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
So right away, I will share that I have had excessive bleeding symptoms since I was a teenager. But in the first part of 2018, when these symptoms really began interfering with my abilities to be an effective wife, mother, or even accomplished in my work, I knew I had to get proactive. Something had to be done.
I got in to see the doctor in May and per my request for blood work at that appointment, I was diagnosed with severe iron deficiency anemia.
My nurse’s jaw quite literally fell from the rest of her face as she read my lab results. When she gathered herself, I vividly remember her comments that followed. She said, “You have got to be so exhausted; like beyond ‘working, helping to raise three children and running a household exhausted’, huh?” I’m thinking, for the first time, someone else gets it. She can tell on the outside by these numbers what I’ve been experiencing on the inside for most of my life.
From there I’ve had to endure multiple tests, ultrasounds, pokes and prods. I’ve had to incorporate new foods and supplements to help restore my iron stores. I even broke out my cast iron skillet; which is what I’ve been preparing most of our family meals in ever since.
In June, I had an ultrasound done where they discovered a polyp in my uterus. In July, I underwent a biopsy of what I anticipated was to be of that single polyp. Turns out I actually had several more uterine polyps that they witnessed during that procedure. The lab results of the biopsy, however, were inconclusive because they weren’t able to get through or around a large polyp blocking access to my endometrial tissue. After that, I was scheduled for September 27, 2018 (earlier today) for a hysteroscopy/polypectomy/D&C.
I have been in constant prayer. My wonderful husband has been fervently making our prayers and petitions known to God while patiently reassuring me of the Lord’s promises. I have also had the most amazing prayer warrior friends, family and church family (shout out Old Town COC) praying for my restoration.
Here is the miracle — when I woke up in recovery today, the hospital nurses told me, “doc said everything looked good.” My doctor did remove excessive lining, but she didn’t find any polyps.
The polyps that my team of doctors and NP’s tried to biopsy a couple of months ago were gone.
They. are. gone.
Where did they go?! Polyps, once formed in the natural, don’t just disappear. They don’t reabsorb. Our bodies don’t flush them. It can’t be explained away. Mine were removed supernaturally.
I don’t care what anyone says, my God is awesome! He is the God of the impossible. I was healed before I went into surgery. Thank you, Jesus!
I will always testify of His love, His mercy, His grace and His healing power. He is faithful.
Bless the Lord , O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
