In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) I wrote about how grateful I was to those who have been praying for me. And, showing me love.
Especially, from people all over the world. Some, I've never met or even spoken with, by phone. Yet, I could feel love radiating through their words.
Thank You, Lord. For those loving people. And, for revealing Your truth to me.
Speaking about truth, I haven't yet told you about what happened last Wednesday, when my daughter P drove me to the surgeon/doctor's.
We were seated in the waiting room for quite a while. In fact, longer than I've ever waited there, before.
A few seconds after we were directed into one of the examination rooms, my surgeon/doctor entered the room and joined us.
He spoke with me, while he examined me. He checked out the incision he had made in my abdomen and let me know he thought it was healing well. And, he checked out the drainage tube that is still in my gut.
Knowing that I am still leaking fluid through his incision, and also through the opening in my gut where the drainage tube is located (no, it hasn't been draining properly), he wrote me another prescription. And, let me know he'd be rechecking me, weekly.
The worst thing he mentioned, was that he was making a referral for me to see a surgeon in London, Ontario, a city about a two and a half (2 1/2) hour drive from home.
The surgeon I'm being referred to is apparently one that deals mainly with traumatic situations.
It was explained to me and P, that in his opinion, I need to have the mesh removed from inside me. He spoke as if it were truth.
At this point, I cannot say if he is correct, or not. I can only trust God for the truth.
After all, God did tell us in John 8:32, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
Truth be told, I wanted to scream! But, I didn't, even though I felt frustrated and extremely stressed.
What I really wanted was freedom. Freedom from this horrible situation I am living in the midst of.
Instead, I took a deep breath. Well, okay... a series of deep breaths. In through my nose, out through my mouth.
And, I silently prayed.
Just so you know, I posted an entry dated May 17th. This is one of the dates I couldn't write and/or post an entry for, here on LwL. It's entitled, Truth? Here's a LINK, so it will be easy for you to access, to read.
May God bless you.
Until next time...
