Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I discussed yesterday about how my daughter P suggested I obtain copies of necessary information from my family physician's office. Once done, she would take me to see her family physician, who has a small practice, since he also works as a walk-in clinic physician.
As I mentioned yesterday, I called my family physician's receptionist. She had told me that she couldn't do it on that day, and would be off on the next day, Friday. So, the earliest day I would be able to do this, would be Monday, October 21st.
On that date, I drove out of Windsor to my family physician's office, paid for the information I obtained and drove over to the west side of Windsor, to pick up P, at her home. Off we went to the walk-in clinic where her family physician works.
Of course we had to wait to see P's doctor. However, once we were with him in an examination room, things progressed rather quickly.
I reminded the doctor that when my now deceased husband Gordon and I lived on Windsor's west side, we quite often saw him, when our own family physician was unavailable, or if it was an urgent matter. In addition, I reminded him that a couple of years ago, I had seen him, and asked him if he would become my family physician. At that time, he told me he wasn't taking on new patients, and since I already had a family physician, he wouldn't even consider it.
P let him know that I am her mom.
Just so you know, P had seen this doctor at the walk-in clinic many times, when she couldn't get help from my family physician; she had also gone to another clinic, as well. Eventually, this doctor recognized that with P having Lupus, and children with serious health conditions, he offered to be her family physician.
We discussed my situation.
P's doctor reviewed the info I brought with me.
Then, he commented that he saw no reason why my own family physician couldn't have written a prescription for the drugs I needed.
Believe me when I say I praised God for this!
I let him know that I was scheduled to have a CT scan. We discussed the blood test results. And, we discussed my health and the fact that it has taken far longer and would still be several weeks/months before I would have the surgery that every surgeon who has seen me, said I need, as quickly as possible.
When talking, I made it clear that I would indeed be grateful to God for a miracle healing, for I truly do not want to have any more surgery. I feel like I've had more than my share!
Oh yes, no one has to let me know that God's will is always done. I already know this. But, I still pray that His will is what I am hoping and praying for!
P's doctor let us know that he was not taking patients and could not become my family physician. He also let us know that he hoped things would go well for me. Then, he wrote the prescription for me.
At that time, I almost started to cry. I felt such relief. Once again, I thanked God!
You see, as I've said before, I still have pain and swelling that comes and goes. One day better, another, not.
And, on that day, my gut was hurting! Of course, I couldn't tell if it was due to not having had the medications I was supposed to be taking, for two (2) weeks (since they had run out). Or, whether it was due to climbing in and out of my van for so many times, that day.
In any case, my heart was bursting with joy and thankfulness.
I thought about Psalms 118:28, "Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee."
No matter the outcome of my health condition, and whether or not I end up having the surgery that I am awaiting, I will praise God. For everything in my life, including every single trial that I don't even write about, here on LwL!
I will exalt Him! Just as I do, on a regular basis. And, I will continue to praise and glorify Him, in every way I can.
After all, without Him, I would have no righteousness. My righteousness... and yours is as filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6).
But, through our Lord, Jesus Christ we become righteous, once we become saved, or born-again.
If you do not yet know Jesus as your Saviour, I suggest that you begin to read your Bible. Begin in the book of John, in the New Testament. Read to the end.
Here you will see how much God truly loves you. You'll find out what He expects of you. And, you'll realize that you truly need a Saviour... Jesus Christ.
Until next time...
