Surgery complication, please pray

I’ve developed a seroma – a fairly large pocket of serous fluid (lymph, etc.) under the incision site and extending up toward my shoulder. It’s not really painful, just uncomfortable enough to interfere with sleeping at night. Last week Dr. Sonfield used a long needle to remove the excess fluid from my chest wall but it has gradually come back.

So, tomorrow I go back to McLeod (Radiology Dept.) to have a surgical drain put back in. It will need to stay in place for a week or two, until the fluid buildup resolves. I’d appreciate prayer for a quick resolution to this situation.

Bette’s Journal

Bette Cox 2010

Christ is the "Big C" in my life!

That was told to me by a good friend recently, and it's so very true.

Jesus says in John 10:10, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."

I believe Jesus. I hope you do too.

I have one request of other believers reading this journal:

Agree with me that the invader will shrink, shrivel, die and disappear from my body, whatever method the Lord uses to accomplish that.

Thanks in advance.
