Tumor Humor

TUMOR HUMOR - A name chosen by my daughter Catherine. I have a tumor that I refuse to let still my joy and laughter. I invite you to laugh with me, because:

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. - Proverbs 17:22

Roline's brief story:

I have been encouraged by so many to continue writing my story. I pray my transparency will help
the reader to find hope, humor, healing and victory through Jesus Christ. I’m not going to lie----it doesn’t help! Last week, December 19 – 14, 2014, I has hospitalized following a Grand Mal seizure and diagnosed with 2 tumors on the frontal lobe of my brain.  While in the hospital, I developed facial palsy which has left me with no muscle control on the left side of my face. My eye doesn’t close and my mouth is shifted. Now begins my journey to healing.

I currently am the primary caregiver of my mother, Henrietta Acox,  who has Dementia. Because she requires around the clock care, she resides in a Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in my city. With her illness comes a lot of emotional pain. She’s let all of the family secrets out, and now we have to deal with much hurt.

I am also married to a Pastor, a preacher, teacher, counselor, mother, grandmother, and friend. I don’t plan to let my circumstances to cause me to lose hope. As long as I can type, speak, and blink, I can serve. I will be serving you until the Lord calls me home!  This blog is the avenue I have been lead to serve you through! Updates on my condition and ministry will be posted regularly, so I encourage you to sign up for the email notifications.  I will post an abbreviated message on my Facebook page, and give a more detailed message here on the blog.

It’s not well with my circumstances, but it is well with my soul! God will be glorified! Sit back and enjoy the ride with me! God has been so good to me, and I can't keep what he's doing to myself!Thank you for your love and prayers!
