Without Ceasing...

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I wrote about conversations with my nurse, D.

Late in the afternoon, after I posted LwL's entry, the surgeon's office called me.  On one hand I was surprised to hear from the secretary.  On the other hand, I wasn't.

What shocked me was how long it took for them to contact me.

When I had the ultrasound test done at the hospital last week, the technician let me know that she would make sure my doctor/surgeon would have the test results and a copy of the ultrasound so he could look at it himself, by last Thursday or Friday.

Of course, I realize he is a busy man.  Still, I thought if something showed up, I would have heard about it earlier than late Thursday afternoon.

The secretary let me know that I will not be seeing the doctor next week on the 14th, as planned.  Instead, I will be notified when I will be scheduled to have another ultrasound test done, at the hospital.

Be still my heart.

This means waiting, once again.  After all, I waited about three (3) weeks just to hear when I was scheduled for the one I had done last week.  Not to mention the wait time, between when I found out the scheduled date, and the date of when the test was actually done.


I'm sure there are probably some people who have been reading how the nurses who have been treating my incision, have been wondering what is going on inside me.  And, I'm sure some probably thought I was carrying on about nothing.

Well, I wasn't.  There truly is some sort of unnatural situation going on.  Whether or not it will resolve itself without surgery or some sort of medical treatment, I truly don't know.

Although, I must say that the secretary let me know that the test showed a pocket was viewed in the test.  It seems there is a pocket of fluid.

Why this is and where it came from, I don't believe anyone knows, at this time.

Yes, I've been praying that I will not have to have more surgery.  However, in my heart of hearts, I have felt for quite a while now, that I will probably require some sort of medical treatment.

I suppose I will just have to keep praying.

After all, that's what God told us to do, in 1 Thessalonians 5:17, "Pray without ceasing."

This is something I already do.  Pray without ceasing, I mean.

For those who have been praying for me, I want to say that I truly appreciate your loving Christian love, in praying for me.  Thank you, for this, and for continued prayer.  May God bless you.

Until next time...
