Results from Specialist Appointment...

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Hi All,

I saw my specialist on Thursday afternoon, a urologist regarding my kidney problems. He said that the test results showed 1 stone has already passed, the other stone is lodged in the kidney, he feels it won't move but can't be sure.

He was going to send me to a Vancouver hospital for a procedure where you are sedated and lay on a table for 40 minutes for the stone to be shocked, it is supposed to break up the stone, not a guarantee as my doctor said he usually has to send his patients back for more than 1 treatment.

It is a far different procedure than having lazier treatment due to the nature of being a kidney. I didn't like the idea of being exposed to all that radiation especially when there was no guarantee it would break up the stone. We came to the conclusion that we would monitor the stone for 6 months, providing it doesn't cause any problems they will do an ultrasound and see what it is doing, whether it has moved or increased in size etc... Then we will decide whether, the procedure, surgery is in order or not...

I would covet your prayers, I'm looking to Jesus for complete healing...Praise God...There is nothing too hard for our God to do...

    One night a man had a dream.
    He dreamed he was walking along
    the beach with the Lord.

    Across the dark sky flashed scenes from his life.
    For each scene, he noticed
    two sets of footprints in the sand,
    one belonging to him and the other to the Lord.

    When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
    he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
    He noticed that many times along the path of his life
    there was only one set of footprints.
    He also noticed that it happened at the
    very lowest and saddest times in his life.
    This bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it.

    "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
    you'd walk with me all the way.
    But I have noticed that during the most
    troublesome times in my life there is
    only one set of footprints.
    I don't understand why when I needed you most
    you would leave me."

    The Lord replied "My precious, precious child,
    I love you and would never leave you.
    During your times of trial and suffering,
    when you see only one set of footprints in the sand,
    it was then that I carried you."

    Glad that your doctor is willing to talk through your options! That's a blessing!

    Praying for God's perfect will in your situation, knowing that His purpose brings about good for us.

    Oh yes, I will be praying for you! My husband just went through the surgery for the kidney stone removal, he had been in severe pain for months, it was horrific. He is much better now and we thank God for that! Hugs to you!
