The Start Of My Journey – #2

Come and hear, all who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.  Psalm 66:16

I want to be as open with you as I can be and tell my story as I have captured the events in writing and how I remembered things occurring.  I want my story and testimony of how God brought me through to be an example of what He will do for you. Rick would attend most of my doctor’s visits with me and we would sometimes leave with a different understanding of what was actually said.  The information was overwhelming, to say the least. It was complicated, embarrassing, confusing and some of the time the information would change.   Our doctor’s visits were with Integris and they have a great App that captured the office visits, results and next scheduled appointment(s). There are some occasions when you can have too much information. It is not necessary you know EVERYthing going on in the inside of your body.  If it does not need medical attention, it’s not imperative that I know about it.  That’s just how I feel.  This may not be something you want to hear, but it may save someone you know or your life. We receive warning signs in life for a reason. There are warning signs on the dashboard of our cars to help keep our cars running in good condition and to prevent breakdowns or a complete overhaul.  Our bodies will also give us warning signs, please pay attention to the signs and seek help early when you notice a change. Back to seeing blood in the stool.  The occurrences were more frequent and the amount had increased. I was at the point where I knew something was wrong and I was ready to call my primary doctor to schedule an appointment.  My doctor wanted me to receive some instructions in the mail and mail in a sample. That was just too gross for me and something I had decline to do in previous years. I told him I would rather have a colonoscopy.  A colonoscopy is a procedure that allows the examiner to view the inside of the large intestine or large bowel.  My exam was scheduled for May 31st.
