Blog Your Blessings Sunday
After returning from my trip to the Mainland in September, I fell ill. Actually, I experienced two nights of illness before returning home to Maui, but my illness continued despite my attempts to get better, visits to holistic doctors, and a session with a medical intuitive....none of whom picked up on my exact ailment.
However, I had a visit from my deceased Mother in a dream, and she informed me I had pleurisy. I had never heard this word before, and so I researched it, and I even noted that I had pleurisy on my blog post of Oct. 21th on Wailea Daily Photo.
Yet my main doctor was on vacation, and when I asked for an x-ray with a fill-in doctor at Kaiser, he didn't feel I needed one as he felt I only was suffering with bronchitis. He gave me an antibiotic prescription, and thus, because of his lack of understanding my situation, my pleurisy worsened.
Finally, I returned to Kaiser late one Saturday to demand an x-ray because I knew I wasn't getting any better, and this time I finally got one. The x-ray showed my left lung almost completely disappeared and covered up with fluid. The doctor on duty that afternoon told me I had to check into the hospital immediately, and the following day, I had a pleural effusion which drains the liquid from around your lung. About a quart and a half of amber colored liquid came out, and they ran tests on this fluid. After a long waiting period, the test results can back that I had a viral infection, most likely viral pneumonia.
I'm now recovering and waiting for the remaining pleural fluid to be absorbed and released from my body. Every day I'm feeling better, but it's been challenging for me to spend much time on the computer as I've needed to rest a lot.
I am totally blessed by guidance from The Other Side.....by my Mother who still watches over me....and by my faith and trust in the guidance I receive. It saved my life!
