If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) lately, you'll be aware that I'm still having trouble healing, after having had two (2) surgeries. Here I am in month six (6), of trying to recover.
Lately, my nurse has been telling me that the hole where fluid had been draining through in my incision, has been healing. As I mentioned previously, instead of just fluid, there has actually been blood draining there, now.
Once again, I have to wonder if this newer healing situation is being assisted by me taking my vitamins, etc. You see, now I am finished taking the antibiotics and am back on my good quality vitamins/minerals. It's only been since this time, that healing seems to be happening, even if it has been slow coming.
As I've written previously, I've had some complications.
Just like in the past, as my incision hole is healing, I once again have swelling to the right of the wound. And, sometimes pain that crosses the right side of my abdomen, depending upon what I am doing.
In addition, I've had a new development. As I just mentioned, it seems that everything has been happening on the right side of my wound. But, a few days ago, my nurse told me that I have a blister, on the left side of my wound.
Last evening, I realized that not only was this blister rather large, but now there are a couple more blisters rising next to the original one, that is now changing from being clear fluid, to red in colour.
My nurse thinks it may be from the tape that has been used for close to six (6) months, now. I hope she's right. If not, it could be a sign of other problems, or infection.
Reality is, that God will allow me to heal, in His time. Not mine. It matters not how much I want to be healed. If God has a purpose in delaying my healing, it will be delayed.
Acts 1:7 comes to mind, "And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power."
Notice that we are told it is not for us to know timing. And, we are told it is God the Father's power. Not ours.
Of course, no one knows God's plan. Not for me, nor for you. Even so, I trust Him, explicitly. And, I know that He will heal me fully, in His time. Not mine.
Until next time...
