Biopsy Surgery in Utah: great growing day!

As I was going into surgery, the doctor told me two things.  I had a red carpet event coming up in a week, and I was concerned about my jaw being swollen from the surgery.  Or missing teeth?  Lol…he said that if it was a small tumor that they could just remove, I may lose a tooth or two, and that was the BEST CASE scenario.  Hm…pretty black dress…red carpet event…girl smiling with her mouth closed because she has given one tooth to the bank of God…

…or the worse case scenario would be that if I woke up with all my teeth, that the tumor was more complicated and the chances of it being an ameloblastoma were more serious, in which case I would have to wait for the pathologist to analyze the biopsy results…which would then lead into the more aggressive surgery.

Well……….as soon as I woke up from the surgery I immediately touched my lips and…felt all my teeth in place.  J  Yikes – time to grow and be thankful to God for this opportunity to have a beautiful learning lesson…the journey has begun.

As of today, it’s been two weeks since the biopsy.  And I feel it has been the greatest gift in my life.  I have stayed extremely positive the entire time.  One movie that really influenced me is “The Secret.”  You get what you focus on. If you focus on the problem, you’re going to get more of it.   If you focus on the “gift” and the “learning lesson”, your spirit and your soul will thrive and find solutions.


Here is one affirmation that kept me going through the process:

I trust the intelligence in my body to heal me and guide me through the healing process.


Ask yourself:  “what else could this mean?”  the moment you ask that, your body and your mind start looking for solutions, other answers and a positive light.  Look at where there is an opportunity to learn.  Find the gift in the situation.


Even though I didn’t have a diagnosis, I started looking for holistic ways to heal.  Found none online for this condition.  I also found a few blogs, but they did not empower me.  I had to stop reading them because they made my gut sick.  That is where I made a decision that I would create a positive healing blog to share that a positive mindset can absolutely influence the process of healing.  One thing I’ve been doing daily to help me is praying and meditating.  It helps me stay grounded, focused, centered and loving.  When I googled holistic healing, I found a great program called the Silva Healing Mind Technique.  I’ve been doing it every day and it’s helped me stay focused on healing, not the problem.

It is very late and I’m ready to sleep.  I feel like a big weight is off my back because I finally started journaling this beautiful path ahead.  I have no doubt God has put me on this earth for a big reason, and part of that is to share my story, good and challenging with my friends and family.  I am in the most positive space I have ever been.  And I am grateful and feel empowered and know I’m going through the healing process.  I invite you to join me on this adventurous journey and share with me through the comment links your feelings, thoughts, questions!

    Yvette, I was in Nashville on 11/13/10 and listened to your training and your opportunity for growth. I have been praying for the healing power of Jesus Christ to be manifested in your life. If you remember the Book of John and the man that was blind from his youth that Jesus healed, Jesus said that the man was blind in order that the Glory and Power God would be manifested in his life. So it is for you.
    Recommend you check out and read the story of the founder and his healing. It may have been cancer but following God’s plan is your answer.
    Kim Clement, a modern day profet of God says, “somewhere in the future, you look much better than you look right now”. Visualize God’s plan and not the Doctors. God does not “practice” He DOES. In Christ, Bill

    Yvette – You are such a beautiful person, inside and out! Your words continue to reach out to me and push my mind more in the direction of holistic healing and the power of positive thinking. As an engineer, I learned to focus on the data, facts and draw conclusions. I’ve been learning that I need to focus less on the science and more on my faith, mind, body and spirit. I’m NEW to this mindset, so it is quite a change. I wish you all of God’s blessings and pray for you as you set forth in your journey.
