Please allow me to take a moment to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for taking the time to continue to hold me (and Lil Man) in thought and prayer. Now, a new crisis has arisen. On Friday, 4/3, I was rushed by ambulance from DC's Union Station (my job is literally across the street) to Georgetown University Hospital. I was suffering from severe abdominal pain that I initially believed was attributed to my IBS. Sufficed to say, after undergoing several tests while writhing in pain, it was discovered that I have an Ovarian Cyst. I was further told that it is about 16 centimeters and (possibly) filled with fluid that was causing my pain. If the pain had not been managed or controlled, there was much discussion about performing emergency surgery that day. I am scared; and, as everyone knows, I am homeless and lacking the financial means and trying to overcome credit challenges in which to secure a place to call home. Moreover, my funds have been depleted in which to maintain the hotel in which we have been staying. Sufficed to say, I am having an extremely difficult time dealing with this new stressor in my life. Why now? I have been suffering from pain all day today. Several times, I came close to calling 911; but who would take of Lil Man? Where would we stay? Thankfully and although I am in pain, it is more so a great deal of soreness from having my abdomen pressed, poked, pricked, etc several times while at the hospital. Mighty Prayer Warriors, I urgently and solicit your thoughts and prayers as I am now trying to deal with the medical crisis. Please stand in agreement with me that God will remove the pain and completely heal my body. Truth be told, I really don't have the strength to fight anymore. Your continued thoughts and prayers are and remain extremely appreciated. May God continue to bless you all.
