Lately I haven’t shared everything that’s been going on with my health, I thought it was about time since I have a lot coming up.
I got a little break from the doctors, Lord knew I needed the break. But I’m back being busy at the doctors again.
I had a very interesting test done of my small intestine this week. I had to swallow a capsule, which was a mini camera, so it could take pictures of my small intestine. These pictures will be reviewed and they will let me know if anything is wrong. The reason for this study is because my body does not absorb iron, which causes my iron deficiency anemia. I’ve already received an iron infusion this past July, hopefully that will hold me up for about 6 to 8 months.
One of the other things that are happening is that I’m having muscle twitching. Its happening with my hand when I’m writing, my hand jerks. Its also happening while I’m speaking, my mouth is going sideways. I visited the neurologist to see what is going on. She suggested it could be due to stress/anxiety but to make sure nothing is neurologically wrong, I’m having an MRI of my brain & an EEG done Wednesday of next week, just to make sure I’m not having epileptic activity in my brain.
Another issue I’m having, is that another mass was found. I’m having an ultrasound done on Monday, hopefully is nothing that would need surgical intervention. I’ve already had enough surgeries this year alone, but if I must, than I will.
In all these situations, I continue to keep my faith in the Lord. I know all that I must endure will be for His Glory. God has given me peace in the midst of it all and gives me the strength I need to keep moving forward. I don’t question His will – God knows me better than I know myself. He has blessed me to go through what I must go through. 😉
