Don't Worry

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. - Matthew 6:34

Last week when I posted that we had nothing much on the calendar I didn't mean for problems to come our way because we hadn't anything better to do.  Last Wednesday morning I had sharp stomach pains, enough that after four hours I headed into the doctor.  The doctor wanted a CT scan and since it was late he sent me to the ER.  While there they thought I was having gall bladder problems.  One ultra sound later I was cleared from gall bladder woes.  Next was the CT scan to see if it was an appendix.  No problems with the appendix but, there is always a but, I have ovarian cysts and a kidney stone. 

Next day a follow up with my doctor, I didn't see my doctor the day before, which I hate, but when in pain you go to who has an opening.  The scan showed a 6 cm cyst so we decided I would have an ultra sound and see a ob/gyn.  I thought my ob/gyn days were over but now I am right back there sitting among the ladies with the protruding bellies although this time I am not one of them.  I had the ultra sound the next day and went home for the weekend to wait to see the doctor.

Over the weekend I surprisingly wasn't worried about this.  I kept saying the verse above and praying for God to give the doctor wisdom to know exactly what needed to be done in my case.  I thought it is what it is and no worrying is going to change that.  Not that didn't think about most of the time but it didn't consume me like things can sometimes.  Dancer on the other hand was so upset she had trouble eating.  We talked a lot about this this weekend and by this morning she said that she was feeling okay with whatever happened.

At my appointment today I found out that I actually have two cysts instead of one big one.  The doctor felt sure that they were only simple cysts and that I should have another ultra sound in a couple of months. Trusting his judgement that is what I will do -- and not worry.

You are wise not to worry. Like me, it sounds like you have kids who will do that for you. :o) I will pray for your health and for Dancer to not worry so much, but I know it's hard when it's your mom.
