I don't need this in my life right now.........

This post is not one of my typical posts. It's really kind of private and embarrassing, but I decided to tell you all about it because I could use your prayers. A few days ago I felt a painful spot above my eye. I thought it was a pimple. It didn't go away and it got bigger and it very painful. When I went to work on Monday, the doctor that I work for looked at it and said he was concerned. He thought it was an abscess. He wanted to look at it closer. Yesterday my doctor said it was an infected cyst that turned into an abscess and he aspirated it. He put me on an antibiotic. Today I woke up with my eye swollen shut and the cyst/abscess is extremely painful. I am heading to the doctor now, but I thought I would share it with you and ask you to pray. He said I might have to go to the hospital if it doesn't get better because it involves the eye. I have just been having some weird things happening with my body and I am a bit concerned. I know that God is in control of everything and I trust Him. I am in His hands.

I took a few pictures and posted this one of me smiling just because when I wasn't smiling I looked really bad, so I posted this one even though I don't feel like smiling.

Thank you for your prayers. I'll keep you posted.

"O Lord my God, I called to You for help and You healed me. O Lord, you brought me up from the grave; you spared me from going down into the pit." Psalm 30:2,3

Update: I just got back from the doctor and he said he feels that although it is swollen, he does not feel that the infection has worsened. He wants to give it one more day to see if the antibiotics help. Thank you all so much for your prayers. I feel like it is getting better. It is really painful, but the RX strength of Ibuprofen does help a lot.

In Him, Sharon

Oh my goodness Sharon!!! I'm soooo sorry. I can't stand it. I almost wish it was me instead of you. You poor thing. I am praying that the doctors will get to the bottom of this and find out what's going on. Also, since it's your eye I'm praying your sight will be just fine.

Just a thought. Have you been wearing contacts? I have gotten something similar because of my contacts. Mine were like ulcers on the inside of the lid. I hope that is what it's from and that you don't have any more problems. I love you very much. Love, your sister, Kathi

OOoooh, Sharon, you are still cute, chickee!! I do understand it can be painful though, honey. You are right: God is definitely in control and you will survive this trial. As I said, you are still a doll face....even with the swollen eye, sugar.....

Heather said...

Kathi said...

Sharon, One more thing. I forgot to mention my eye puffed up like that once or twice when I got the ulcers from contact lenses. It went away in a day or two; both the ulcer and the puffiness. I'm going to keep praying it gets better fast. Did your doctor think contacts could have anything to do with it? Love ya, Kathi

Elena said...

Sharon, I hope your eye is better today. I'll keep praying. We saw Mackenzie and Brittany sing last night. They were awesome!!! Their new songs are very good too. Brittany mentioned that Mackenzie wrote the 3 new songs that they sang. Soooo much talent!!! I bought 2 CD's and several others bought them. It was so good to see them. I hope your day is a good one.

Kathi said...

Sharon, I can't stand it. I love you sooooo much. I just want you well. I
love you soooo much. You mean soooo much to me. I am glad to know that this
might be a currible thing and related to strep. I will keep praying. I just
want you well and okay again. I know you want that and your family wants
that too. I just couldn't stand it if it was worse. I know I could with
God's help, but in the flesh....there is no way. I am sooo glad that the place the doctor squeezed seems a bit better. Bless you dear sister, Kathi

It's Jan! said...

On the bright side, one side of your face is beautiful...it outshines the other a million times.

I am praying for a pain free and complete recovery.

You are right, you didn't need it now, but when will you be needing it? It's not our timing, but HIS.

God bless,
Love,
Jan

So sorry I missed this yesterday. So glad that the doctor feels it is ok. I love your humble heart that posted a pic and asked for prayer. I pray Jesus that the healing continues. We know that You are the Great Physician. Please touch my sister and grant her health. Protect her vision in that eye and comfort her and bring her peace and assurance that all is well and You are sovereign. Amen.

Kelly said...
