I am an anomaly. As always, whenever I get sick I end up leaving everyone scratching their heads. It never fails, they run test after test and nothing. Before my appendix was removed they did every test they could and nothing showed up. My white cell count never budged. It never changed then or ever. I think they are on strike or something. In the end they did exploratory surgery and my appendix was about to burst. I’ve had my gallbladder removed. No symptoms and them boom, sick as a dog and hospitalized. I’ve had kidney stones before so I thought I had them again but they did a CAT scan today and nothing. Now I have a consult with a surgeon tomorrow and I’m really scared. I am the type of person who is afraid of IV’s. I have nightmares of all the little holes they’ve put in my veins popping back open and then bleeding to death. I know it’s insane. So, now they want to cut me open to just rummage around for something unknown. If only I can get past the IV……
Quote of the Day – Robert H. Schuller – “Tough times never last, but tough people do.”
God let me be one of those tough people.
“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.”
