We got there at 8 a.m. and by 12:30 p.m. I had received the 3 units.
The nurses in Day Surgery are awesome! :-) Friendly and caring. Patient with all my questions.
Blood was taken and counts were done ... 3 units of blood brought the count up from 4.9 to 7.0. Still not enough - but better.
The R.N. in Day Surgery asked me if I had seen a Gyn about all this bleeding. I said no - that we had been out of state, and on the truck during the most of these last 5 months.
I told her that I had tried to talk to Dr. Tris, but couldn't get past his receptionist.
The nurse said she would make a call.
Less than hour later, Dr. Tris stood in the doorway! :-)
He said that before he could even discuss everything he needed some diagnostic tests. So, he ordered a sonogram to begin with.
Had the external (and internal) sonogram yesterday afternoon.
And was scheduled to be back at the hospital day surgery this morning at 7 a.m.
We are to meet with Dr. Tris first. He is supposed to tell us the results of the sonogram.
A DNC and cervical punch biopsy are scheduled for around noon today under general anesthesia.
So, once again - all modesty and dignity go out the window when we get to the hospital this morning! LOL
I realize that this is the first steps to finding out the reason for all the bleeding. And to fixing me.
Trying hard to breathe in and breathe out. Just take it all one step at a time.
I know that Dr. Tris does these day surgeries all the time ... but not on me!
And I know that every day people go under general anesthesia and there are no problems or complications ... but I also know that sometimes there are problems and complications. Lord, please - NO problems, NO complications today for me. Please.
Rick was with me yesterday, and will be there today, too. His truck is broke down anyway, so he isn't "missing" work to be with me. But he said he would anyway! LOL
My kids are wanting to be here today ... but neither one is able to. I know how they feel. Life sucks when you aren't close enough (or have money enough) to be where you need and want to be. I remember well the times of being in Idaho - Mandy giving birth to our first grandchild, emergency C-section - Joshua having a head injury due to a fall with a horse, and then a truck accident that totaled the truck and shattered his knee. We were in Idaho and could not be here. 2000 miles away from Momma's babies!!!
And now? They are the ones away from Momma. Sigh.
Lord, give them peace and comfort today.
I know that God is God - and I am not.
God is in control - no matter what.
I am trusting in Him.
Believing in Dr. Tris - I was one of his first 5 patients over 30 years ago when he first moved to Sulphur Springs. And since then, he has delivered both our kids, 3 of the 4 grandkids (2 for Mandy and 1 for Dessie).
He even treated Rick at one point years ago - Rick had smashed his finger at work, and we were waiting to be seen at the E.R. Dr. Tris came by and wanted to know why I was there, and why we hadn't called him. I told him it was Rick - not me - that we were there for. He took one look at Rick's finger, called us back to an E.R. room, used Rick's lighter and a needle, went thru Rick's fingernail, released the pressure of the injury, and sent us home with an antibiotic prescription. We still laugh about the look on the pharmacist face when he saw that Dr. Tris (OB/GYN) had written a prescription for Rick. LOL
So, I do believe in Dr. Tris. and this will be one more time that we are putting my life into his hands. Lord, give him wisdom and direction. Give us peace. And please - give me LIFE and HEALTH.
We trust in YOU God. YOU.
