Our Lord's Day, and May 10th...

As you probably read in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I've begun writing about my happenings during the 15 days I was in hospital.

Yesterday, being our Lord's day, I normally would have gone to worship.  I didn't.  With a tube draining fluid from my gut, I didn't think it was safe to drive.  After all, the steering wheel would be directly in front of it.

Instead, I caught up on some of the things I needed to do, here on the internet.  Including writing an entry for Friday, May 10th; here is a LINK.

Yesterday, I realized that even though the intravenous (IV) power unit that distributes my medication was working okay, it wasn't recharging.  Even though the unit was being recharged in the charging unit, it was not happening.

Consequently, from Saturday afternoon until Sunday morning, I had to use the unit not with battery consumption, but rather, by a normal plugged in power source.  Plugged in or not, the battery didn't charge; in fact, it even lost some power.

Sigh...

After calling the drug store in Amherstburg, which is the only drug store that handles intravenous equipment and drugs in our county area, I was told that they would send another unit to me.  Unfortunately, it arrived after my nurse came... and left.

My regular nurse was off for the weekend, so a substitute one gave me care, today.  She's a lovely lady; I like her, a lot.  She came a little earlier than originally anticipated.

Oh well.  My regular nurse will have to change over the equipment.

Again, I'm trusting in my Lord, Jesus Christ.  And, am thankful He provides for me, always.  I know I do not have to fear.

Just like on May 10th's entry I am posting today, I am happy to be mindful of 2 Timothy 1:7, "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

Besides, what good would fear do?  Would it help me?  No.  Just as it wouldn't help anyone else.


Until next time...
