Friday night I went to Relay for Life in my new town up here in the Northwoods. It was a homey small town Relay. They served a survivors dinner for us and our families. There were speakers sharing testimonies and such. Well a doctor got up to speak.....
(this is where I break into the Fiddler on the Roof's rendition of "Miracle of Miracles!!" sing it now!)
This doctor spoke of ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE used for healing cancer!!! I thought I would fall outta my chair!
He said, "If Western Medicine was all there was to healing disease then the rest of the world would be dead."
He spoke of a few of the kinds of healing practices I have used and one of his favorites was the power of prayer! (he's a good Irish Catholic).
I went up to him afterward and told him he was a breath of fresh air to hear a physician actually give a plug for alternative medicine. I told him I think I am going to really like this town!
So the kicker is that he is my hubby;s doctor. This is a God thing. Arthur was having chest pains radiating down his left arm during out move. Well of course I was freaking out to say the least. Thankfully Arthur works at a hospital and went to see the cardiology nurse who immediately set him up with a doc who "happened" to be on call that day. (being new we had yet to set up a doctor relationship). The doc on call was the one who believes in Alternative Medicine as a Complementary medicine for Western meds!!!!
I do not believe in coincidence. This was an appointment set up by Providence.
I am in good hands! :-)
i just wanted to share this with y'all b/c I knew you'd appreciate my excitement of finding a supportive doc in my new town. WooHoo!!
peace, emily who knows big things are happening.
