As I wrote in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, my body began leaking fluid, once again. And, blood.
One thing I was grateful for, was the fact that it began the day before my appointment with my surgeon/doctor, and not the day after. Thank You, Lord!
To me, it was a very stressful appointment.
My surgeon/doctor thought it would be a final check-up. Instead, we discussed how I leaked fluid and blood while he was away on vacation.
He told me that he didn't think it was connected with the current problem. Even though I am not a doctor, I don't really agree with him.
Why? Well, as I mentioned previously, the extensive swelling made the area so hard. And, when it softened and decreased in size, was when the swelling in the other area began and the leakage, happened.
Even so, he knows that what began yesterday is definitely related. Yes, the swelling has returned. And, so has the pain.
Of course, the leakage of fluid and blood didn't make either of us happy. Especially, since he suggested it may be a problem with infection of the mesh inside me.
He wants me to have another CT scan.
After my appointment, I went for the blood work to be done, that was necessary to be done, before the CT scan can be ordered. Hopefully, by the end of this week, or early next week, my surgeon's office will be able to request the CT scan.
While on my way to my vehicle, I felt rather sad and began to pray. In my prayer, I requested God to deliver me from this situation, asking that I not be required to suffer greatly.
Thinking about this, reminded me of Psalm 70:1, "Make haste, o God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord."
Knowing that my help comes from the Lord, He is the only person I can turn to. Especially, in this rather severe problem situation.
May He give me strength to face whatever His will is. After all, His will is always done.
Until next time...
