Update on my health…

For this I thank you ALL!

Last night I was advised to go the Emergency room after talking to the on call surgeon. I am one week post swapping out my tissue expanders for implants. The last surgery in my breast cancer journey. Yesterday was the worst I felt the whole time since my surgery.

I was in tears when I was told my husband could not be with me at all. They were doing a work up for sepsis. I had tears streaming my face as my phone would not even connect to make a call out.

Thankfully after a long day with a fever, and feeling very nauseous my blood work came back all clear. My blood pressure was high when I got there. I refused all medication while there, because of all my allergies. I was the only person who could advocate for my own health. They were going to give something on my list of allergies.

So at the end of it all the conclusion is I have a pretty good sized Seroma. I will be seeing my surgeon tomorrow to see how we are going to address this. I am in a lot of pain. I am so swollen, but thank God I am home. Thank God it was not sepsis. Makes you realize how precious life is, and how fast things can change.

I was so weak, and sleepy. The Seroma was just making me feel crappier than I even knew. I have had many of you responding with prayers, and kind words. I just wanted to update you all on what is happening as of now.

So I am resting, and my husband was given 2 more days off of work to be with me. I so appreciate all of your prayers! Lord willing I will stop draining soon. I just keep holding on to “this too shall pass”.

God bless you all, may God be with you all as we approach the coming New Year!

I thank God for this man whom has been by my side this whole time. He is my best friend! My love, my husband, my heart! We both cried last night when separated!

    1. I will say I am very happy, and grateful! My life is not mine it is God’s. I actually have never been more grateful. I have had a rough couple days, but I am not unhappy at all. God has done miracles in my life this year. I just needed to be clear with that. I don’t have breast cancer anymore, and I love my life. I am a dance in the rain type personality. My life is too bright not to be. I trust I will be on the mend within days of now. Last night was just a little rough, but nothing our faith didn’t carry us through. Blessings Lisa 🙏🏻❣️

      1. Oh Lisa! You’re so strong. I’m happy that you don’t have cancer anymore. I hope with whatever pain you are suffering from now or from past couple of days, you’ll recover from it soon.
        You truly are a Vivid example!
        Lot of love 🙂

  2. everything you’re going through can cause blood pressure to go sky high! Thank God it seems that you weren’t septic (? is that right – weren’t dealing with sepsis!). I dealt with that with my dad every time he got a fever when dealing with liver disease.
    Praying that all of this is behind you very, very soon!

      1. A seroma is a pocket of clear serous fluid that sometimes develops in the body after surgery. This fluid is composed of blood plasma that has seeped out of ruptured small blood vessels and the inflammatory fluid produced by injured and dying cells. Straight from Google lol.
