In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I let you know I was sick. And, requested prayer.
Thank you, to all who prayed for me. I appreciate it, more than you know. And, want you to know that I pray for you, also.
The coughing I mentioned was so horrific, that I truly thought my gut was going to burst open.
In case you're not aware, after having two (2) surgeries in the last 15 months, my surgeons had all told me the same thing. No bending, no lifting, no carrying, no nothing.
One reason was because I am awaiting surgery, once again.
Another reason was because when you've had your gut opened like this, you have no stomach muscles. Especially, when you haven't been able to do anything to help strengthen them.
When I coughed, about every few seconds, my gut hurt beyond belief. Of course, my head hurt, too.
How have I been feeling, today?
Not any better. Although I must say, that I am not coughing as much.
It was so difficult to lay in bed. The coughing was so much worse, even though I was propped up with extra pillows.
After a couple of hours, I couldn't stand it anymore. Then, I would move out into my living room to sit in my recliner chair.
A couple of hours later, I would return to bed. This went on all day, and all evening.
I haven't eaten since Saturday. And, I'm in terrible pain. And, have fever, too.
A couple friends phoned me, today. I thank you, for caring.
I cannot drive. This means I cannot go to the doctor's office.
Of course, I am not truly alone.
I have with me, the Great Physician, for whom all things are possible. Jesus.
I thought about the woman who touched Him, and admitted it, after He said He felt power leave Him.
He told her, in Luke 8:48, "And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace."
Yes, I have faith. No, I am not yet healed.
I'm still suffering. But, I'm trusting that I will be healed.
Of course, I believe I still need prayer.
So, I would like to ask you to continue praying for me, please. Thank you. May God bless you.
Until next time...
