Well, again a time has lapsed between posts. That was not really intentional though. A lot has happened, and I’ve gone through a bit :) As most of you know, we got the influenza a couple of weeks ago. It went through the family, and some got it worse than others. I didn’t get it so bad. But then, after we were starting to get better, I came down with some horrid pain, and I do mean horrid. Worse pain I have ever had. It was in my lower back – Dad thought maybe it was a slipped disc or something; I was stuck on the couch for a few days, because I literally couldn’t move. A couple of times when I would have to get up to use the bathroom, I passed out, and vomited from the extreme pain. I cringe to think about it, really :P When it wasn’t getting better, I finally had to go to the Emergency room. But I couldn’t get in the car…so, an ambulance came, lights on and everything. It was an interesting time. Not one I want to ever relive. At the ER they gave me pain meds, and took Xrays when the pain died down a little. It wasn’t any slipped discs, and nothing was broken, so the doctor said it was just a pinched nerve or something and they sent me home with pain meds. They didn’t touch the pain, and the next night, I was running a fever and still in horrendous pain, so Mum called the ER again, and asked some questions. No tests were taken while I was at the ER. Blablabla, I wasn’t about to go in that night. No way. So we prayed and I fell asleep, and in the morning it still hurt, and I just knew something was wrong, so I had Mum look where it hurt, and what do you know, this ugly cyst had come to the surface! So, we went back into the ER that morning – by car, thankfully. I sat on my knees. At the ER they drained my cyst, (which was painful beyond belief again. Cried the whole time) and sent me home with a doctor appt. for the following week. Blablabla again. So yeah, it was a cyst, and an odd one at that (they don’t really know the cause of it), but the doc. appt. went okay, blablabla, had to go through another painful week, but not as bad as the past few, and now that brings us to yesterday, my second doc. appt. We prayed hard that the doctor would say it was healing nicely, and we could stop sticking gauze inside the cyst daily (again, painful). Praise the Lord, that is what he said!! When he said it, my heart leaped so with joy and praise to God! And now it should be closed and healed up within the week. This is the short story, mind you :D It was a lot. Surgery is suggested to completely remove the cyst, but we have time to pray and make a final decision on that. So glad.
Oh, and my elder sister is expecting her second baby any day now!! We are all so excited, and waiting so eagerly. You’ll definitely hear about the arrival! Yay!!!
Anyway, I didn’t come on here to say all that – I have a video I wanted to share. A friend shared it with us, and it really is super good, plus the guy is funny. :) So, enjoy! The message is amazing. It kind of ties in with my last post about glowing in Christ, being the bride of Christ :)
