Ameloblastoma surgery update video from Yvette Ulloa

Well, it is the countdown!  It’s not new year’s, it’s not vacation time, it’s time to enter a new fairy tale land with unknown pages.  It is definitely an uncertain and uncomfortable road…but I know God is guiding my path and there is a bigger, much better reason for me going through ameloblastoma surgery and it’s not about me.

I created a video to update everyone on the latest on my first of three ameloblastoma surgeries…and we will be posting many more in the upcoming weeks! Please know…this is a beautiful journey and I’m embracing it…don’t feel sorry for me…it is freeing to be able to talk about it and appreciate the gifts along the way…

We will be posting pictures, ameloblastoma surgery updates and inspirational thoughts. See you on the other side of this fairy tale! I call this a fairy tale because every fairy tale has a challenge, and what princess would dare to be one without it! I already have my prince…just needed the challenge to write my book, Fabulous at 40!

I wanted to share this picture because this was a huge challenge for me to climb the pole then jump out, when I was on top of the pole I had nothing to hold on to, except for faith. This is exactly how I feel right now, I’m about to make a big jump in my life…and I know I have wings and I’m protected by God!

    Yvette, You have an amazing attitude which is key. My thoughts and prayers are with you for your healing process, and look forward to watching your progress. Your blog is very educating on this news and where you have been taken to. I am certain, because of your perfect thoughts about a loving God who will be with you, ALLways the outcome will be exceptional! Thank you for who you are, and know you have many who love you, respect you, and adore you.
    By the way….I am finding it is difficult to keep the body in an alkalinity above 6. I’ve resorted to drinking a tablespoon full of Green Vibrance twice a day. My surgerys (2) for the cancer went well and has not transfered to any lymph nodes. Yea! The blessing is a very dear friend of mine has written her thesis on Breast Cancer Research and works at the U of A here in Tucson, AZ. I’m now in their study at traditional and holistic levels. Seems the routine mammogram I had caught the tumor in time. This cancer may have appeared because of estrogen therapy I was receiving for 2 years. The type of cancer I have is invasive lobular carcinoma, and is receptive to estrogen. It grows from estrogen.
    So, enough of my own. My desire is for you to heal quickly and publish the beautiful book this year as I look forward to a copy!
    Much love to you Yvette!
    Sincerely from, Carol

    I was so praying you would not have this surgery. But like you said God has a bigger plan for you and I know He will uphold you and be with you every step of the way. There are people from as far away as the Phillipines and Hong Kong that are praying for you. These are personnal friends and mighty prayer warriors. Together we will bow on our knees and pray without ceasing!

    My dearest Yvette,

    I would like to speak to you from the heart. Upon hearing the complete story about your tumor, I listened with a smile. The first thing I said to myself was, “A tumor? Stop Yvette? Yah right!” It was such a funny thing to imagine a tumor stop such an ambitious, strong-willed, beautiful person because I knew it was just another obstacle leading you into your path to greatness. There has never been a single doubt in my mind about your speedy recovery. During these times, yes positive thinking is crucial, and yes a clear mind is important, but I believe that faith in God’s work will guide you, protect you, and make you shine. This is God’s world, and He has chosen you to live it in such a special way. On the day of your surgery, go in there with hope and God will take over. Trust in Him. My prayeres are with you and I’m so excited to see you on your way to full recovery.
    I love you Yvette!
    Nicole <3

    It is hard for me to put into words what my heart and soul cries out. Reading your blog and watching your video gives me great pause for reflection. How do these things come upon us? Why do they come upon us? Questions that I am sure you have asked yourself and many health professionals over the past months. But, are there any answers, really? We can’t explain some things. Maybe we aren’t supposed to. But, I do know that how you have chosen to move with and through this journey is a tribute to who you are. You have integrity, courage and faith. As you share with us it gives us hope for you and for us when and if our future brings us to a crossroads such as this. Life is to be lived. And you, my dear friend, are living it to its fullest. Each day, each hour will be a test and a testament to your authentic self–rich in courage, full of love and empowered through HIS Spirit. Blessings and prayers, Hugs and Butterfly Kisses.

    Hi Yvette,
    I will have the prayer warriors out in full force for you! Keep walking by faith and believing! God bless you!

    Jeremiah 17:14
    Heal me, God, and I will be healed;
    save me and I will be saved,

    I want you guys to pray for my friend Reggie Meralles. He sent me his pictures and I can see how ameloblastoma really deform his face, teeth and gums. I feel so sorry for him. I pity him for getting the disease. Reggie is a filipino and he’s in Philippines. He is just staying inside their house waiting for a miracle. They are too poor to have his ameloblastoma treated. If there is I can do to help him I will… Please help..
