Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I must tell you that blogger doesn't seem to be working fully, and/or properly, so please bear with me. Even though I am writing this entry as I normally do, with paragraphs, it is not showing up this way.  It won't allow me to even post a title for today's entry! Recently, I wrote about having my morgage agent friend, Mary Ann Lehmann and her husband and son join me for a swim and BBQ, last Thursday. As I mentioned, by the time bedtime rolled around, I was sick. Really sick! At first, I wondered if I had done something wrong in either preparing or serving our meal. But, in my heart, I knew it wasn't the case. In any event, after I climbed into bed, I had to immediately get up and go into the bathroom. I began to vomit. Sorry if this upsets you, hearing that! I can tell you, it was upsetting to me! As I've mentioned in the past, one of the health concerns I have, is a hernia. Yes, I had it repaired many years ago, but the repair hasn't lasted and I once again, need surgery. My stomach and abdomen was distended; swollen beyond belief. To read more about what can cause this, please click on this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdominal_distension I mentioned this for a reason. All this physical trauma put so much pressure on my hernia, I felt like my body might just burst open. Truly. Even after the vomiting ended, retching continued. Every few minutes, for hours... In fact, I was up until about 7:00 a.m. doing this. No sleep, until after that stopped. Since I had no diarrhea, I knew it wasn't the flu. Nor did I believe it was food poisoning. However, there was something I thought it might be. Three days earlier, I had begun some new medications. A thought occurred to me. Maybe this was what caused the stomach problem. How glad I was that I have the fear of the Lord in me! Hmmm... that reminded me of Psalm 111:10, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever." How glad I was that God had given me wisdom, concerning what I was enduring. There is more I need to say about this, but it will have to wait. If you can find it in your heart to pray for me, I would appreciate it. Thank you, friend. May God bless you. Until next time... If you would like to comment, please e-mail: lifewithlynnie@gmail.com
