Not Unto Death?

Today, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be discussing what I've been up to, lately.  It's been a rather busy week, for me.

On Monday, I tried to visit my family doctor.  He runs his office like a walk-in clinic.  No appointments are given.  And, there is never a guarantee that when you arrive at his office, that you will even see him.

Even so, I waited until later in the morning to go to his office.  You see, after the weekend, every Monday morning, his office is filled with people!

Unfortunately, when I arrived, there were still many people, there.  Seated, standing, both in the waiting room and out in the hallway.

Not wanting to sit for an hour, or two (2) or three (3), amongst some people who are sick and possibly contagious, I immediately left.

Tuesday afternoon, I tried again.  This time, there was only one (1) person ahead of me.  Even so, I waited close to an hour, before I got to see him.

It wasn't a good visit.

He seemed rather angry and upset with me.  He mentioned that it had been a very long time since I had seen him.

This was true!

After all 13 months ago, I was sick and hospitalized, had surgery, and was cared for by specialists.  Until recently, when my 'new' Windsor surgeon told me he was NOT my doctor, and would only be doing after care for me, once I have had my still unarranged surgery.

He had told me that if I needed any assistance, I'd have to visit my family doctor.  So, I did, just as I just mentioned.

I won't go into detail about what was discussed.  What I will say, is that he asked me when I last had any testing done; I told him that blood work was in May of this year, and the CT scan was in early June.

He said we should arrange for another CT scan to be done.  And, he wanted me to go to the lab, for blood work to be done. 

My family physician wanted to be convinced that I have infection still inside me.

Sigh...

If I didn't have any infection inside me, I wouldn't be needing dangerous surgery, to have all the mesh inside me removed.  But, even though he had records relating to all of this, he wanted to be convinced.  So, I went and had the blood test done.

Hopefully, next week he'll have the results.  And, help me for the need I saw him about.

Since I've had many people from all over the world praying for healing for me, the results may be surprising.  If God gave me a miracle.

If my unhealthy, life-threatening health situation has been somehow changed, believe me when I say I will praise God with every ounce of my being!

Of course, I realize that if this were to happen, it would be to glorify God, in addition to healing me.

Just as we're told in John 11:4, "When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby."

Am I praying for a miracle healing?  Of course, I am!

Knowing that I not only have the staph infection MRSA active in my gut, and an abscess that is poisoning me daily, I know that there is no way I could have been healed.  Unless it was a miracle from God.

If I could live without having to have further surgery, I'd be more than thankful!  And, I'd have such a wonderful testimony to tell and write about, to glorify Him.

This is what I'm praying for!  For a miracle, that is.  After all, a miracle can only come from God!

I thank you, for praying for healing for me, also.  May God bless you.


Until next time...
