It’s been some time since I added anything here which is purely down to laziness. However it would be wrong not to include a comment on my experience over the last couple of months.
On Saturday 23rd March I started having some pain in my stomach, I was up all night with it and went in to hospital the next day. The doctors discovered that I had an inflamed appendix and transferred me to another hospital for surgery. By the time I got into theatre the appendix had ruptured. Despite the complications added by the rupture, the operation went well and I expected to be out within a few days. 4 days later I was still in quite a bit of pain and not recovering, after a few x-rays and a CAT scan the doctors discovered I had a ruptured stomach ulcer. I went in for surgery that day which was a success.
Over the next 2 weeks I had to have 5 drains inserted to remove fluid (one of which punctured my lung). The recovery process was scary at times but supported by God, my family and friends I made it out and started the recovery process at home. I am now almost back to normal (still taking it a little steadier) and thankful to God for all he taught me through the experience and his faithfulness in leading me through.
