I couldnt even do my job as far as working with the residents if they needed me to transfer them from one chair to another or from the bed to the chair. It was very painful.
She examined me and she told me that I had three fibroid tumors, two on the left and one on the right. She set me up for an appointment at Johns Hopkins.
I always encourage my patients to watch The 700 Club because it's uplifting for them and for me, too. She [Thelma] was one of my residents that morning, so I turned on The 700 Club, and I sat on the foot of her bed, and we were sitting there watching.
They were praying: "Theres someone else. I dont know if its the same person, but youve got fibrous tumors in your body. God is healing you of that right now in Jesus name. Theres one particularly on the right side. God is just healing that, shrinking and dissolving it. It is going away now in the name of Jesus."
And I said, "Thelma, Im supposed to go to Johns Hopkins next week for this test."
She said, "Deborah, I felt that. When you go down there, they are going to find nothing wrong."
I said, "Thelma, I felt that, too!" I felt the presence of the healing through my body. I felt the peace. Right after that I had no more pain.
So I went down there for the tests.
As I was lying up there watching the small monitor and they had the big monitor and Im just trying to look to see if I can see anything, he told his assistant to bring two doctors in.
They stood there looking at the monitors saying, "Well, where at?"
I had asked him, "Is there anything wrong?"
And he said, "No, theres nothing wrong."
After the doctors stepped out of the room, he told me, "Who in the world told you that you had fibroid tumors?"
I said, "I know I had them. My doctor told me down at Mercy, and thats why she sent me here."
"Well, we dont see a thing. Theres nothing wrong with you."
When I came back to work, the first thing when I got here I had to go see Thelma.
I said, "Thelma, they didnt find a thing!"
And she said, "I told you. We were sitting right there."
A caring friend will be there to pray with you in your time of need.
