What do you do when you world suddenly goes silent?

Hashimotos Thyroid Disease Survival
Yes.  You BE STILL and know that HE is GOD and can do anything, HEAL anything, BE everything and KNOWS everything.  If you have been following me on Periscope, you know I've been doing daily devotions for busy moms.  Lately these devotions have been focused on God's healing and his faithfulness.  Mostly because I have  needed these reminders and I feel if I need them then maybe God can use me to help you.


I know that I'm not the only person to suffer with thyroid issues.  I know I'm not the only person to be tested for nasty illnesses (we're not using any specific words, here ---)  

A few weeks ago I shared that I had to have my thyroid nodules undergo a nuclear scan.  I truly believed that I was going to light up like fireworks and was going to be nothing but "hot spots" -- that was the optimum result.  Unfortunately, the right side of my thyroid has a "cold spot" meaning its sort of a dud spot -- and that really does not mean anything at this time other than MORE TESTING.

As I was on the phone with the sweet physician's assistant I swear my body went numb and I just hear buzzing in between my ears.  I could hear her speaking but it was sort of like the Charlie Brown teacher... you remember how she sounded, right?  I felt my chest get tight.  I think my heart started racing.  I felt dizzy.....  and I could hear the little voice in my head telling me to pull it together.  Stay tough.  You know - that positive Polly that lives in my head and heart.  Thankfully she is one persistent lady!

So where do I go from here?  When my doctor returns from vacation she will order a fine needle aspiration biopsy of the thryoid.  Essentially, this will be done to collect tissue and rule out cancer.  There.  I said it.  The "c" word.....  My mom is a thyroid cancer SURVIVOR and deep down I knew this was coming.  I'm a very instinctual person, and I feel that God uses that to prepare me and keep me from totally losing it!

I will keep soaking in the words of God.  I am trusting in him and taking His PEACE and allowing Him to use me.  He has a plan....I'm trusting in that plan and allowing him to work in me.

For now, I cling to this:

Psalm 33:4-6

4 For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. 
5 The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. 

6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made,their starry host by the breath of his mouth.

and this.....
nutrition to heal the thyroid

Have you ever had a fine needle biopsy?  What should I expect?
