I could use prayers

Wednesday, September 16, 2020

Hi everyone,
I know I have been MIA for awhile with blogs but getting back to school, (I am a bus driver) and my Diverticulitis diagnosis and now I am having surgery this morning for a Ventral Hernia.
Monday as I was in the grocery store I leaned over my cart and had a pain in my belly where the lump was. Then the next day I took a shower in the morning and even touching it was painful and I noticed it was getting bigger like a tennis ball. I did go to work in the morning and when I came home between runs I decided to call the doctor.
I have had a lump on belly, under my breast and a couple of inches above my belly button for a few years.
I have mentioned it to a few doctors. One wanted a catscan and at the time I didn't have insurance to cover it. One said it was a thinning of the wall on my yearly check up (this is the same one who sent me to the ER worried that it was a strangle something or other) I even asked if I could go after work and he told me I should not wait.So I went.

I had more blood work and another scan and had to wait forever to talk to a surgeon. We were there about 6 hours altogether.
To make a long story short he said it is a Ventral Hernia and it will not get better without surgery. He said I could stay in the hospital overnight for Surgery in the morning or come back next day. I chose to come home and go back today. Which was a better choice since I will be going to a different hospital and I have to wait for a call.

Please pray for me since I am really afraid of having any surgery, and hate the thoughts of being put under with any anesthesia. I am really nervous about this.

I was so excited to be able to get back to work and pay off some debts and now I will be off for 1 to 2 weeks. It really sucks.
I will let you know how it goes.
