It's time to let it out...
Friday, October 01, 2010
Back in July I had a BIG scare which I thought was my heart. Since then I have been through numerous tests and procedures. The doctors still aren't sure what is wrong.
Through all of the testing that has been done, a precancerous polyp was found and removed. I thank God that the testing lead to finding that. Had I waited until I was 50 to have a colonoscopy done, it may have been full blown cancer. Please, please, please don't put off having screenings done that are meant to save our lives.
In the last 2 weeks I've had two surgeries. One to remove a cyst from the bottom of my foot and then a week ago I had my knee scoped. As a result of the surgeries, I ended up with two blood clots and have been on bed rest for a week now, along with injections, blood thinners and major pain killers. I never knew blood clots caused so much pain. I had a doctor appointment today and have been cleared to start physical therapy on Monday thank God. These blood clots have really hampered my knee recovery.
Yesterday, thanks to Obama shutting down the space program my husband was working on, my husband was laid-off.
I am trying to see the blessings in my life, but right now I'm having such a hard time. I am physically, emotionally and spiritually drained. I don't think I can take one more thing happening to us. I feel so helpless. I can't walk without crutches, I can't drive, I can't even bathe myself by myself.
Forgive me for not being a better friend. My plate has been full and running over. I appreciate so much the love and concern that has been given to me.
