Emergency Room visit

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

Father, thank You for being there while going through the pain in my chest. The ER was packed and since the EKG showed my heart was okay, the nurse let me wait until there was a room available. Others were in need as well.

The pain did get more intense and more often, but You were there.

I thank You because, even if the only reason I was there was to pray for Your calming presence while a very large group of people came in Wailing and Crying due to a death so that the workers could have more calm instead of mass hysteria, then it is fine with me. You know that the workers need as much calm as possible.

Thank You for the kind male nurse You allowed me to have. He worked really hard not to hurt me when he had to put in the IV port.

The doctor ordered an Ultra sound and found gallstones and said there would be a need for surgery to remove the Gall Bladder.

Father, I am believing there is a natural way of getting rid of the stones instead of surgery. And I trusting You to show me what that is.

Thank You for helping me from 3:30 til 1 a.m. during the entire stay at the ER and getting me home pain free. Thank You for the kind hearted doctor giving me pain medicine.

    ER stories are horror tales. My wife had a stomach virus and couldn't stop vomiting and we were visiting in a college town at the first football game on campus and there were a lot of accidents and alcohol and drug issues and discovered tha only way to get to the Dr was to arrive by ambulance. Kids knew that. I held a trash can for 6 hours before they saw her and gave her meds to calm her and rehydrate her and put her in the hospital for another day. If I need to go to the ER I am traveling by ambulance

    Gallstones are smaller than green peas but they are rock hard and have jagged edges like coral. Because of the sharp edges, the stones can sometimes get stuck in the small duct to the small intestine. In some cases, they can put in a stent in the duct to keep the duct open. It depends on how large the stones are and how many stones you have. Your doctor will be able to explain this to you on your follow up visit.
    Having a stuck stone can lead to an infection in your gallbladder which can be as painful as a heart attack. The infection can affect your pancreas and liver because they are very close to the gallbladder. The chance of a second gallbladder attack is quite high.
    I hope you feel better quickly and that you get a complete understanding from your doctors.

    The good news - it wasn't your heart. The bad news, gall bladders do usually need surgery when the stones are big enough to cause that kind of pain. Fortunately, it's not nearly the ordeal it used to be and with God's help the surgery will be fine and you'll be better than ever very soon.

    Beautiful prayer. I'll be praying about finding an alternative to having surgery for the gallstones. Be blessed.

    I hope you get to feeling better. The surgery of removal of the gall bladder is so much better today than it used to be. I had no pain whatsoever when I had mine removed a couple of years ago. If the stones are large, it may be the only alternative. I hope you find peace soon and a release from the pain. Isn't awesome that God is always there when we need Him?
