Traveling with a ruptured Baker's Cyst

Yup...I accidentally took a pix of my shadow again kekeke...

Warning : my yakety-yak unrelated to anything ^^

I've decided to open up about what has been happening to me...I mean some have seen me hopping and limping along with my it's no use hiding it anymore. I couldn't use my left leg since the 3rd of Sept because my [old] Baker Cyst came back [became bigger] and three days after there was bleeding [black and blue bruises seen from outside]. After several visits to the surgeon and expensive Doppler and Sonogram examinations done, we found out that the Baker's Cyst behind my left knee had ruptured [me have one b'hind my right knee also...sob]. 

If you want to know about Baker's Cyst click here and here sorry I don't have time to explain it to you. I did spend a few day's of anxious time...thinking that it was DVT or Deep Vein Trombosis.

Anyway...I spent a few days in a wheelchair and then I used a crutch ...still using it  now [along with compression stockings] when I have to walk a long way. It so happens that I had to travel alone to Timor in my current state, and I went through a new experience in my travel. There were so many nice people offering airport official asked if I needed a wheelchair...and a technician doing something under the plane asked me if I could go up the stairs by myself to enter the plane. Of course there were people staring at me incredulously...maybe they're thinking, "What is that lady doing...traveling with a crutch, shouldn't she be staying at home?". So there were also the down sides...the steward and I had a hard time stowing my crutch under the seats...we tried stowing it this way and that....obstructing the way for other boarding passengers.

Of course someone with a crutch when starting a conversation will be asked,  "What happened ?"....I've heard it sooo many times that I feel like printing a T-shirt with the story and telling everyone to read's more difficult to explain when most people don't know that a Cyst could occur in other places in your body...not only in the Ovaries kekeke....

I think this is a valuable experience for I know what it is like to be in a wheelchair and what it's like for people who walk with the help of crutches. I hope I will get better soon and can walk far freely,with my own two feet again.....

Dear friend, try to look it this way -- much ado over nothing. Well, you just have to hold in your thought that you're your Heavenly Father's daughter, created in His own image n likeness, which is good, perfect, beautiful n healthy. Hold fast to this Truth, let it make a deep impression in your mind and I know The Lord will reveal to you His true purpose for your beautiful self. What is that The Lord couldn't do? What won't He do for us His beloved children? I know He's carrying out His purposes for each of us. All we have to is to be obedient n be grateful for whatever He has in store for us.
Sorry, if I sound a bit patronizing, believe me, that's not my intention. I just want you to know that you've my support n friendship. Bless you.

Dear Momo...don't worry, imo everything you say is true. It's just hard for me to be objective when I was still in the middle of "it"...

Next time I'm in a bind, I'll just have to wake up faster and realize it !!

Thanks, I'm glad so many of my friends cares ^^

Oh yes...YOU'RE missed here ^^
