The Power of Prayer

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

I have witnessed the power of prayer over and over again in my life. God is so awesome and real. About six weeks after giving birth I have been experiencing stomach pain. Some days I feel the pain some days I don't. Sometimes the pain can last for hours, sometimes it last for couple days.What makes me worry is when I was in pain, I can not take care of Max.

To make a long story short, I went to the doctor, she gave me medicine but my stomach still hurt. One night when I couldn't sleep due to the pain, I e-mailed some friends and asked them to pray for me. After some research, I found that there's big possibility that what I have is gastric ulcer due to the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that I took for three weeks after childbirth.

I went to the doctor again. She couldn't confirm

if it's gastric ulcer until she do endoscopy ( looking inside the body by inserting a tube into the body). At this point, she doesn't think it's necessary. She didn't prescribe any medicine because she doesn't want to cause further damage to my weak stomach. She just advise me to eat soft non-acid food for the next 2-3 weeks to give the chance for the stomach to heal.
