I know it’s not my birthday but my daughter’s birthday. But I am thankful to the Lord for giving me the present that I very much wanted. This week have been a scary one for me. I have lost my sleep when I got the news from the ultrasound. Actually it’s not the official result yet but words from the doctor who have done my ultrasound. Apparently, my left kidney is showing some sign of disease because it’s white. But according to him the right kidney is in good condition. Then he accidentally scanned my gall bladder. It appears I have stone. I was already thinking ahead — dreading the thought of kidney biopsy, gall bladder surgery and oral chemotheraphy. My first thought was am I going to die already? I was really worried for my husband and daughter. I kept on praying. Begging Padre Pio to intercede for me. Then came Thursday. I would have postponed the check up but I know I have to see my doctor so that I would really know my status and tell the husband when he comes home. You won’t believe that I was thinking that this would be the last time that he would see me alive. When I saw my doctor and he told me that there is nothing to worry about but my high blood pressure, I wanted to cry and jump for joy. Since according to him my C3 is okay, my kidneys are fine at the moment. As for the gall stone, since they are not hurting, I can forget about them as of the moment. And that’s enough for me. Now, I bow to leave a much healthier life. If before, I was already successful in switching to veggies and fruit, now, I would be more passionate. I would be doing this for the two persons who mattered most in my life — my husband and daughter. Thank you lord for the gift of life.
I sprained my left ankle last Wednesday. So I was limping the good part of Thursday, but that did not prevent me from going up and down the stairs of the LRT station. My doctor told me no riding boots for now until the pain is gone. Then Friday, it was my daughter’s birthday. I woke her up and she complained that her hip bone was hurting. I was really nervous at the time but I am assessing also the situation. She loves to copy me. What ever I do, she does it. So, I was thinking if it’s just because I am limping and complaining about the ache and she complains also. Unfortunately, I was wrong. The whole morning she was saying her leg hurts and she is limping in school. My husband has to carry her.I was really worried because joint pains are part of the symptoms of LUPUS and some say the disease is hereditary. I was able to breathe a sigh of relief because later part of the morning when she was already enjoying her party she said her boo boo is already gone. Right now I am still observing her. If she complains about the pain again, we would be taking her to the hospital for a check up.
