God is still Faithful!

Psalm 46 (King James Version)

1God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

2Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

3Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

4There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

5God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

6The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

7The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

8Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

9He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

10Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

11The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Hi guys,

I am still a little bit out of it but I wanted to share what I do know with you all. Yesterday's surgery went well. I didn't even have issues with the gasses that they pump into you like I did last time! The doctor made 2 discoveries that were out of the ordinary.

1: I have a Unicornuate Uterus. This means that my uterus is smaller than most and that it is only attached to my right fallopian tube. The doctor said that I would still be able to get pregnant on my own but that it would take longer and that I would have to have a C-section about a month early because the baby would run out of room.

2: The doctor found a vessel that is suppose to be under my ureter and it wasn't. This led her to think that I may have only one kidney. I have to get this looked into also.

I am scared but God is good. I've been reading stories online about the Unicornuate Uterus and I am so Praying that God will still bless me with a child. Since I only have 1 tube connecting to my uterus, that means I can only get pregnant when that tube sends out the egg. And... I still have my PCOS.

God knew what He was doing 27 years ago. He created me this way for a reason. Though it seems strange to me because there's only like a 1 in 4,000 chance of having this, He has a plan. It does scare me to think of waiting a lifetime to have a child. The chances of miscarriage according to the net are like 38%. But He knew what He was doing then and He knows what He's doing now. I praise Him for this!

Prayer needs:

1. Pray that I heal quickly and am back to myself soon.
2. Pray blessings for those at the hospital who were so kind to me yesterday.
3. Pray blessings upon my precious family who were so good to me yesterday and always.
4. Pray that despite all these issues, God would be preparing my precious child even now to make it's entrance into my life.
5. Pray that we can find out all about my kidney when I'm up to it.

Thanks and love to all!

Ps. My doctor is suppose to give me a call and let me know the ins and outs of all this. I'll update when I find out.

Dave and Elaine

Glad to hear surgery went well. Now I pray the doctor will be able to decide what treatment is best for you. I am sure it is scary to have learned of these things but at the same time there must be some comfort in knowing these things. Yes, God is still faithful. Always. No matter what! Praying for a fast recovery!


Dear Alesha,
Thanks for writting to let us know the results of Friday. WOW! God knit you in your mother's womb the way you are and He knows your hearts desire. I am praying for you to feel better quickly and then for wisdom in knowing what your next step will be. Norma (Elaine's mom)


(((Alesha))) I'm here if you need me friend.


Alesha! I was just thinking about you earlier today and wondering how you were doing. Thanks for the update. That is a ton of information to get in one day, and wow, it makes me realize how thankful we can be to live in a day and age where we can find out such specific insight into our personal circumstances. I wish I could offer you some encouragement in your struggle, but I am sure it would pale in comparison to the comfort that Christ can give you now.... He is enough. I know you trust Him. I am praying for you guys! Love you!
