So this isn't something I normally do. I'm convinced there is a Gid and I dint consider it a faith thing, I've seen to much for it not to be fact. You believe what you want and I'm cool with it. I rarely share testimonials and never preach.

So my wife has a long time friend of the family who was recently diagnosed with a very aggresive cancer that had already spread to multiple organs. They did biopsies, drugs, chemo, etc, etc.

Nilothing helped and it continued to spread. So surgery was a last option and thus would be a debilitating, life altering operation that would likely leave her with limited mobility and a colostomy bag.

Her daughters and husband were obviously distraught and pretty much said their goodbyes to the mother and family life they knew.

She showed up for surgery on Sat morning and the surgeon explaining the procedure would be at least ten hours long.

Her husband and kids were sitting in the waiting room for about an hour and a half when the Dr. Emerged from the OR. Husband assumed things went wring and she was dead. As it turns out the surgeon opened her up and could not find a single tumor anywhere. Nothing, everything looked completely normal and she left the hospital two days later without any rx's, other than standard post op pain meds and has a routine check up in a week.

The Dr. as I'm told was misty eyed when told them that he had no medical or scientic explanation for the finding and offered only that a higher power was certainly at work.

Just thought I would share as we head into a bust and stressful Chrismad holiday where are concerns are mire likely to be in food, friends, fashion and gifts rather than why we're celebrating in the first place and just how truly blessed the vast majority of us are.

I am, however, convinced there is a Gidorah.

He doesn't conform to their way of thinking, so therefore, CWG does nothing to benefit anyone. Everyone knows you must be a Christian and go to church twice-weekly to do good.

Glad there was a wonderful outcome to your situation, JOAT. It's always nice to hear good news amidst the sea of negativity.
