Remaining Steadfast...

As I mentioned in previous Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries, I had surgery.

The not great news is that I am not able to sit up, easily.  It's painful.  So, I won't be writing a long entry, once again.

The good news is that the surgeon found that it was not a pocket of the worst that could have happened to me.  A bacterial infection.

Instead, it was a pocket of inflammation.  Not quite as serious.  Still, surgery was the only way to clear it from my body.

While I am happy that I can now be content that I should heal now, I must say once again that it isn't easy being in pain.  If I were in hospital, it would be easier to keep my pain under control. 

That isn't the case, since I am at home.

The alternative to having this surgery on short notice and having to recover fully at home, would have been to wait several months until a hospital bed would have been available to me.  As my surgeon explained, by the time this would have happened, it could have been dangerous to me, had the pocket of fluid been a bacterial infection, so I must be grateful even for the pain I am experiencing.


This brought to mind James 1:12, "Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him."

Yes, this whole ordeal has been one huge trial.  Not just due to being in pain, but also putting my life on hold, and not being able to work, as I normally do.

Oh well, God is in control.  So, I'll just continue trusting Him.  And, I'll continue praying not just for full, restorative healing, but also for this trial to end.

Again, I thank you for praying for healing for me.  May God bless you.

Until next time...
