The chest wall tear that I experienced has continued to cause me trouble. I have suffered with a build up of fluid after the tear and the swelling and the fluid put a lot of pressure on the already stretched skin. Eventually the pressure became too much for the incision to handle and it opened up enough to let the fluid start to drain out. I guess this is a blessing in disguise, although I don’t know what this will do to the incision line once it is all healed again. Tomorrow we are going to visit the community nurses to see if they can give us help with dressings for the draining liquid and to check to make sure that I do not have an infection in the incision. I am extra tired as my body is still going through the healing process, but I am looking forward to getting back to normal in the days and weeks ahead.

  1. Dear Cheryl. We do not know why we are asked to endure pain and sickness. What we do know is that God will stand by your side and see you through. May you feel God’s presence as He brings you back to health.
    The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made
    Psalm 145:13

  2. Ah, Tillie my friend, thank you for those good words! God is indeed faithful and loving even when He calls us to suffer. The full extent of that won’t be known until we see Him face to face in eternity. In the meantime, He is trustworthy in the dark, here on this earth. Thank you!

  7. blumzadeline,
    Thank you for your prayers and your encouragement. I hope that my continued journey will be an encouragement to you as you just start on your own cancer journey. It is a road well traveled, but one that can be conquered, at least in the spiritual realm with joy in the Lord. The Lord Jesus walks with us on this path and He will never leave us alone or forsaken.
