Did you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) over the past two (2) days? I hope you did. If you didn't, please read them both, now.
As you may be aware, I've had so many surgeries, based upon what medical people and surgeons did wrong. And, as I mentioned, my muscles had to be used to reconstruct me.
Talk about being weak! At first, I could hardly even lift a small bottle of water. And, I had been told that I should not lift anything for quite a while. Plus, I was told that it could take several years for me to become stronger.
Did I heal totally? NO.
Unfortunately, when someone has severe surgeries, a person can get Seroma, whieh is what I got.
Seroma, is a pocket of fluid, which can cause Cancer,or an Abscess which can kill people. I was told I needed a system to drain it.
The doctor who was installing the drainage system notified me that the system would have to stay inside me, until it was fully healed. If it wasn't fully healed, then it could cause an Abscess and/or Cancer, or have it build up, again as a Seroma.
After many, many, many weeks, my daughter drove me back to London, Ontario. When I arrived I had thought I would be told that the Seroma would have been healed. But, it wasn't.
A nurse had put some cream on my gut, and it caused me a problem. So the doctor insisted the drainage system had to be removed... even though I WAS NOT YET HEALED.
Plus, something else happened to me.
After being in the hospital for another nine (9) days, I was released even though I was severely hurt, and was caused terrible bleeding, and other troubles.
I won't give you all the detail of what happened, but a different doctor claimed that I needed some treatment. So, he installed something that he thought would help me.
Instead, it caused me more damage, inside me. And, I was told I needed to have two (2) more surgeries!
I told that doctor that I couldn't have anymore surgeries, because I had been told that I should not ever be cut open again, since my muscles had been used to reconstruct me.
Then, I was sent back to the surgeon in London, Ontario, who had done my muscles reconstruction.
When I saw him, he let me know that it would be even more dangerous to have surgery, than even before. But, I had something else wrong, again.
I had an Abscess. So, that surgeon did surgery regarding the Abscess.
This meant that I had close to three (3) months of nursing care again, at home.
That surgeon also told me that because I would be healed from the Abscess, it may be possible for me to be healed inside... so, maybe I wouldn't need the two (2) surgeries, I had been told I needed.
Did I heal? Only from the Abscess. Not from the damage that had been done inside me.
Even so, God has helped me, every day!
But, I must admit that I realized I was again experiencing a... fiery trial.
Thinking of that, made me think of 1 Peter 4:12, "Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:".
Amen! Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
Please... realize that I know that I have experienced many... fiery trials. And, am still experiencing a fiery trial.
Even so, I will ask you to please... pray for me... to be healed.
For this, I thank you.
May God bless you.
Until next time...
