A Short Time...

As I mentioned here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday, the surgeon visited me just after I had eaten lunch, on our Lord's Day.  Sunday.  She let me know I was to be taken into the operating room, about 8:00 p.m.

At about 6:45 p.m., my nurse let me know that the person transporting me to the operating room was ready to take me.  This was shocking, but at the same time, I was grateful.

Before being given general anesthetic, I spoke with my surgeon.  I asked her if it was possible for her to remove the ABSCESS, rather than just drain it.

She let me know that she couldn't remove it.  She didn't want to have to remove any mesh.

I thanked her for helping provide healing for me.  Then, off we went.

Believe me when I say, I prayed. 

I prayed for wisdom and guidance for my surgeon.  I prayed my Lord, would provide this as the healing I need.

And, I trusted God for it.  And, thanked Him.

After all, He did tell us in James 1:5, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him."

In my mind, it matters not how intelligent someone/anyone is.  What matters is if God is leading them.

And, lead my surgeon, He did.

Apparently, I wasn't in the operating room very long.  As I was waking from the anesthetic, I could hear nursing staff discussing the fact that I was only in the operating room for a few minutes.

They kept asking me if I had any severe pain.  I must admit, I did not have as much pain as I had before I went into the operating room. 

For this, I praised God!

Until next time...
