My name is Miriam and will tell my story. Believe that many can get hope in the deepest darkness. There is a God who wants to listen to you and comfort you and help you and cure your illnesses.
I got married. We longed to have children together. Got many early miscarriages. Was so sad every time. We both prayed to God for a child. And one day I started to get small bleeding between my menstrual period. Became worried. We went to the gynecologist who did not find anything wrong, but he took a cell sample from the womb for safety. Were pregnant again and the pregnancy seemed to last and I felt good. We went on early ultrasound to see if everything was okay. We saw the little baby move and the heart that struck. We were overjoyed and would eventually become parents!
Were in Pregnancy Week 14. And suddenly we were called to a doctor at the hospital and it was important that we both came there they said. The answer to the cell sample had arrived. I almost forgot it. Me and my husband went to Salgrenska in Gothenburg. We were very nervous. Did badly speculations what it could be.
As we sat in the little bright hospital room, I saw the doctor's serious min. "You have cancer," the doctor said. In the uterus and the best thing is to remove it and abort the child. You may not live more than one to five years if you keep your uterus. The doctor thought I should go home and think about how I wanted to do and let him know when he called me. There was a great grief over me. Felt like I was going to faint.
We were so happy and the baby in the womb felt well and the pregnancy finally lasted. And then I'll take away everything and never get pregnant again and lose this long awaited child. At the same time I thought never! I know God can heal people. He is the doctor in the Bible. And rather, I lose my life for the child to live.
I am the Lord who heals you.
For whoever desires to save his life will loose it and whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
I told the doctor that I wanted to keep everything. Then the doctor said; "Ok, but after you've given birth to the baby, we can take away the womb" Then replied, "Yes, only if you can see visible cancer otherwise not." The doctor kept in touch with me during pregnancy. He thought it was strange that the child was still there. It is common with miscarriage when you have cancer in the uterus I was told. The doctors shook their heads and thought I was crazy who kept the womb. My husband was told by a doctor that "If it was my wife, I know what I should have done". The doctor meant removing the uterus and abortion. I enjoyed my pregnancy and believed I was healed. Many Christians prayed for us. Felt so healthy and didn´t bleed during the whole pregnancy. Felt the child kicking. The midwife said I had a wild baby in my stomach.
2016-01-13 Caesarean section
The day came when I would make a planned cesarean section during pregnancy week 38. Should be awake during the cut. The oncologist (cancer doctor) was there. "Prepare for anesthesia. If I find cancer now, you´re anesthetized." he said. It looked like he wanted to find cancer and prove that I was wrong. Felt a shiver of discomfort. Felt so unreal. I should not be put to sleep, I wanted to say but said nothing. They wanted me to feel like a deadly cancer patient. That´s how I felt. After several failed attempts to put anesthesia into the spinal cord, they succeeded. They opened my stomach and out came a wonderful chubby fresh girl 47cm tall and weighed 3682g. She screamed, our beloved little child, and my husband took pictures of her. The oncologist disappeared quickly and did not return. They took the placenta and a bit of my uterus to see if they found cancer. He saw no visible cancer and my stomach was sewn together. The nurse was surprised that I was up and walked the same evening after the cut. Felt so good. We went home after two days. Got the test answer by phone. They found no cancer. But they wanted me to get there in four months and scrape the whole uterus so they can analyze it and see if there's any cancer. Went there for scraping. They failed to stun me with spinal anesthesia. Would have been stunned from the navel and down. They got my permission to do it without anesthesia. Absolutely did not want to be put to sleep. That's what they do in common cases. I was relaxed anyway and they scratched. They called me the superwoman who could endure it relaxed without anesthesia. One nurse almost wept. Me and my husband wanted more children in the future and I mentioned it to the gynecologist and asked if scratching can hurt so I can not get pregnant ?. Received an answer "You should not even think of that, you have cancer". Was so sad. How can she express herself like that and take my joy away from me? After that I went home. After a few days, this gynecologist called me and said:"
Found no cancer" We were so lucky!
I was completely cancer free and God had healed me!
And you shall realize that I am the Lord and that those who hope for me do not come ashamed.
Last return visit!
Sat at the oncologist Per Hellberg one last time. Did a gynecological examination and everything looked good. "You have no cancer he said". "There is no reason for you to come here, you are healthy. Wanted to hear the doctor's own words about the day of cesarean section if he saw something suspicious when they opened the womb. He said, "No, I didn´t see anything strange, everything looked normal, no cancer there.
After I finished my visit, I went out with a smile on my lips, God made me well!
