The Body?

Hopefully, you're aware I wasn't able to post here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) for quite a while.  This was partly due to the fact that I spent 15 days in hospital.

As I did over the past couple of days, I have been working to catch up on creating daily entries, so that you can be kept abreast of my happenings.  And, of how God has been working in my life.

Today, I posted an entry for the date of May 11th, entitled Finally, a Bed!  Enough about way back then. 

Yesterday, my regular nurse visited me, at home.

As per normal, she cleaned and redressed my wound area on my abdomen.  She flushed the drainage line.  And, she flushed out and tested the PICC line in my arm.

I'm grateful that my PICC line has two (2) catheter hookups. 

One of them wasn't flushing well and wouldn't draw back blood, the way it is supposed to, in order to be working properly.  She used the other one that was still working, to hook up my liquid heavy-duty antibiotics that will cover my usage for the next 24 hours.

Not long after my nurse left, my gut felt weird.  Sure enough, I once again experienced a massive amount of leakage.  So much so, that the bandage that was only about an hour or so old, was thoroughly drenched.

Sigh...

I called my nurse.  Yes, she returned to make an instant replay of my wound cleaning and redressed it.

Then, she wrote a note that she would fax to my surgeon/doctor, and left a copy for me to take with me for when I see him for a recheck.  We tried to send the fax from my home, but for some reason it wouldn't go through.  At least, by her faxing the note, my surgeon/doctor would be aware of my situation, before I see him.

I must say that even though things hadn't gone 100% well yesterday, and I felt somewhat frustrated for a short time, I wasn't worried.  I praise God for this!  After all, my Lord is in control of all things, including, my body and healing.

How grateful I am that there is no need to fear.

After all, He told us Matthew 10:28, "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."

Yes, this is the same verse I used in the link I posted earlier in today's entry.  How grateful I am that God works in my life daily.  And, shows me in His Word, the Bible, how He works in my life.


Until next time...
