My Miracle Year

The year 2006 was looking to be a great year for me. I had tickets to see Billy Connolly in January in Melbourne (a long held dream), I was turning 50 in March and then in April was due to head off on my very first overseas trip; four weeks in Britain. A few days before Christmas 2005 though I had some puzzling symptoms and sensing something was wrong, asked my GP to refer me for an ultrasound. It found I had a large tumor on my left ovary and surgery was scheduled for January in Melbourne, a couple of days before the Billy Connolly concert. I passed my tickets on to some friends who, although sorry for me, were thrilled for themselves as all Australian concerts had been sellouts and they had missed out on tickets (I realise now this was THEIR miracle!)

At my pre-surgery consultation, I mentioned to the specialist that I hoped to be going overseas in April and he soberly said that I may be having chemotherapy and not to get my hopes up. I awoke in recovery after the operation to find the surgeon leaning over me saying the tumour was just an ugly benign mass and he had already phoned my husband with the wonderful news. Such a miracle, I feel the emotion of it to this day.

I spent 8 days in hospital and a week or so into my recovery at home I had heard from my friends and they told me they had loved the Billy Connolly concert. Just for something to do I went to the ticket sales website and to my absolute surprise and delight there were 2 tickets available for March in Canberra! I could hardly believe my eyes and rather than buy the tickets online, I phoned and was told – “oh yes those tickets have just been returned”. I had already been blessed with a miracle and now here was another one!

By March I had recovered exceedingly well, was back at work and so the weekend we had in Canberra was amazing, and the Billy Connolly concert was the dream come true. Turning 50 at the end of the same month was a very happy occasion. My husband and I then went on to have our four weeks in Britain in April and even though we have travelled overseas since, we still say that trip was our favourite. 

I was truly blessed with miracles in 2006! and there have been more since, but that's another story!
