As I wrote in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, my pain is under control, now.
Errantly, some may think this means I do not have any pain. I do. But, not always. And, as I mentioned, I am grateful for the relief, I have received. Thank You, Lord!
When my nurse was here today, to redress my incision, she said it was looking good. Praise God for this!
However, she did mention that there is some slough seeping from where my drainage tube is located. Hmmm... this means that my body is fighting having the tube there.
This doesn't surprise me.
After all, I do have Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), a rare form of Rheumatoid Arthritis. It's an autoimmune disease, along the lines of MS or Lupus, etc.
This means that my body will fight off anything invading it.
For me, there is one aspect that I am sad about, concerning my health at the moment. It's the fact that since I am on antibiotics, I cannot take my vitamins.
Like last time, I'm on the same prescriptions. No vitamins, etc., three (3) hours before or six (6) hours after taking my meds.
Well, that might work for the type of vitamins that you take once per day. But, it won't work for these.
Oh well. So be it. It's all part of God's plan for my life.
Just as I wrote in yesterday's LwL entry, God told us to not worry about our lives.
In Matthew 6: 31-32 He told us, "Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things."
Yes, God knows my need. And, yours.
Nope, I won't worry. And, I won't be afraid. I'll just continue to trust in Him. For, everything in my life.
Hopefully, you trust Him, as well!
Once again, I thank all who have prayed for me. May God bless you.
Until next time...
