“The pain, the discomfort, the uncertainty of what it really is, the fear of it being malignant, the confusion of not knowing the cause, the lowered self-esteem, words can’t exactly express the level of trauma I had to deal with daily” – Grecelda Hobson

GOD IS REAL AND HE DOES REAL THINGS…

After 15 years of being separated from my first love, God in his infinite mercy brought us together from across two continents. Our joy knew no bounds and we decided to get married.

Two days after our families were formally introduced to commence the wedding preparations. I discovered that my left leg was swollen. Tests from the hospital revealed that I had sub-acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Immediately I was admitted in the hospital and commenced treatment with close monitoring. After 2 weeks I was discharged to go home but I was placed on medication which I had to take daily for another 3 months.

During the course of my treatment, I noticed my stomach began to swell, went back in the hospital where I was diagnosed of having a tumour in my stomach but there was nothing to be done until the DVT was completely gone as my medication was a blood thinner so I had to wait.
Within the 3 months, the tumour grew rapidly to the size of a 32 weeks old pregnancy. The pain, the discomfort, the uncertainty of what it really is, the fear of it being malignant, the confusion of not knowing the cause, the lowered self-esteem, words can’t exactly express the level of trauma I had to deal with daily. To think that I was supposed to be getting married and all these things were happening at the same time. I wanted to cancel the wedding plans but my husband assured me that we would fight whatever it was together so we got married.

3 weeks after our wedding what should have been a regular period turned out to be a ruptured ovarian cyst, internal bleeding and chronic anaemia. Barely 30 mins after I got to the A&E I fell unconscious from loss of too much blood, my veins were collapsing but God in his mercy snatched me away from the hands of death again. I was transfused 3 pints of blood and stabilised.

After a series of tests to ascertain the extent of damage, I had an exploratory Laparotomy which by the grace of God was successful. After the surgery, I was placed on a medication that induced menopause. That introduced another phase of the challenges. I had to deal with all the menopausal symptoms and thoughts like what if the menopause became permanent. This went on for another 6 months and I was a newlywed, but GOD stepped in again and saw me through.

During those turbulent times, I prayed, my friends, my family, my pastors, they all prayed day and night without ceasing so my faith was renewed and I made a vow to GOD that if only he will deliver me and heal me, I will use my gifts to tell the world of his goodness. True to his words he healed me COMPLETELY. Hence the birth of my single “Thank you, Lord”. This song was born out of deep gratitude to the Almighty for who he is to me and for all that he has done.
