A while back, I wrote a blog on Testimony Tuesday called Testimony Tuesday: My Health Journey, and today, I will be adding to that. Thank you for taking the time to read this blog.
Going To The Doctor: December 21st
At 1:30 P.M. on December 21, 2020, I went to another GI specialist, the first two being at OU and the second wanting to visit virtually (and who can prescribe properly over the phone).
We talked about the problems I had such as Diarhea, loosing about 100 pownds (which I was actually excited about but the doctor worried about).
I did bloodwork after that visit (and if anyone reading this has veins that are hard to find, have the nurse in doing bloodwork turn the turniquet tighter and wait a little longer), and then we left. That night, I had to prepare for a Colonoscopy and took some Stool Samples while preping for the Colonoscopy.
Let’s stop for a minute. The reason why I’m so specific is due to the links that I am providding so that the reader, you, will have the information you need concerning these same problems or whatever issue I have. I am usually not this specific when it comes to public consumption because talking about some of this stuff is down-right embarrasing, but I figured it would be better to research on each thing so that if you or someone you know has these tests done or these problems, you yourself would have the right information at your fingertips. Thanks for baring with me in advance!
My Grandma woke me up at 7:00 A.M. Yesterday morning. We had to be there at 8:00 A.M. We signed in and at 9:00, they started the procedure. They put an IV in beforehand, which, for those that are hard to stick, the same instructions I provided above for bloodwork apply. They should work. Mom took me home GhGrandma had to workar, and my samples to the lab. The rest of the information as to what went on Yesterday, I will not disclose. I do have some final thoughts though that I want to talk with you about before I end this blog:
- The best thing you can do when it comes to doing these types of tests or really any is stay in an attitude of prayer.
- Always remember that whatever the results, the Lord has you in the palm of His hand and is taking great care of you. This was my first proceedure alone that I had to do, and at first, I was skepical, wondering what would happen or how it would turn out, but I just trusted the Lord that He was with me and would help me through it.
- By no means should worry, anxiety, fear, or other behaviors take over. Just pray concerning the worries at hand and wait upon the Lord to fight for you (1 Peter 5:8, Philippians 4:7–8). Let God’s peace reign. God bless!
