In January, I went for my first check up since my knee surgery.
For all who don’t know, because of the chemo and steroids I ended up with necrosis of my bones. My bones have started to die in both of my legs and my left shoulder is no longer there. Due to all the damage, I now need surgeries to remove the dead bone in my knees and a shoulder replacement. On December 21, 2015, I had my first surgery to correct this. We started with my right leg, because it was hurting me the most out of both of my knees.
We found out that I would be seeing another doctor at my check up because my doctor was on indefinite leave. Mr. Stewart was very nice! He checked my leg and took the dressing off. He said my incision is healing very nicely and is almost closed completely! Oh, guess what!!!!….. He also said that I could start putting a little more weight on my leg!! I was so excited to hear that all is healing well!
Without God and my amazing family, I could have never made it through all I have been through! I am so thankful and grateful! God is my strength, when I am weak and weary he carries me through. He stands by my side and is with me every step of the way! “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
Lastly, I have a prayer request. I mentioned my doctor was on indefinite leave. Well, a health issue has come up and she has to take care of herself. Please, pray for her and her health! May God be by her side and watching over her as she deals with. Comfort her and her family as they walk this journey. Give all people who come in contact to help her the knowledge. In Jesus’ Mighty Name, AMEN!! I love you Dr. DeRoode!!
