Went to see the Gastroenterologist on Tuesday because my food is staying in my oesophagus and not always going into my stomach.
He has decided that I should have a special test done called a Oesophageal Manometry test. This will check my oesophageal spasm to see how strong or weak it is. The consultant thinks the lupus has weaken the spasm and this is why the food is not going into my my stomach.
I will have to go to a hospital out of my area for this test and will have a camera left in my oesophagus for twenty four hours.
It has been a week of aches and pains but I have to trust my saviour (Jesus) to see me through the good times as well as the bad times.
I had a friend came to visit me yesterday and I had to go to vomit and of course it took a while because I am now starting to get very breathless again and couldn't move for a while,. When I did return to the lounge she became frightened because I could not breathe properly therefore I could not speak.
Today is Sunday and I had another bad night of backache and coughing. I was up most of the night and only went back to bed about 5 am. Slept until after midday.
I did not go to church again today as I am now having another flare and rest is the order of the day and possible week.
Thank you Jesus for carrying me when I am weak, your strength is just what I need I know you will not let me down. Thank you that I can find rest and peace in you.
