As I wrote in yesterday’s Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I had to see my surgeon.
He told me that my partly-opened and infected incision was looking improved, but it still wasn’t healed. Not good.
To make sure I don’t have some other sort of infection or problem, he told me that he wants me to have an ultrasound test done, at the hospital. I’m still waiting to hear when this will happen.
I began praying that there isn’t some sort of problem that we are not aware of. Certainly, I do not want to have any further surgery.
The reality is, I have no control over any of this.
Only God is in control. As a human, I’ve done everything in my power to encourage healing.
In order to ensure the antibiotics I took over the last three (3) weeks, worked well, I followed the instructions.
I had to stop taking my vitamins, because I couldn’t work it out for 6 hours before or 2 hours after. Plus, I had to not eat peppers or anything spicy, and the worst… no caffeine. That meant no tea or coffee!
Since I finished my antibiotics on Monday, and the surgeon did not want me to have another round yet, I allowed myself to actually have coffee, today.
Well, I need to qualify that remark.
While I like French Vanilla Cappuccino, I do not often drink it from Tim Horton’s. Too many calories, and sugar for me!
Instead, I use packets of instant mix that I make at home. Only 60 calories!
Yum! It tasted great! I felt blessed taking that first (1st) sip!
The fact remains, I am still in need of healing. Thank you, for continued prayer, for my daughter and for me. May God bless you…
Ultimately, God heals. Psalm 30:2 says, “O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.”
I have cried out to Him many times. He’s heard my cries. And, I’m trusting Him, for the outcome.
Until next time…
