Going to ER...

Please know that this entry of Life with Lynnie (LwL) was not written and published on the date posted.  It was done after I returned home from the hospital.

In yesterday's LwL entry, dated Saturday, February 1st, I let you know that I was going to hospital. 

If you read the entry you'll be aware that I had seen my daughter P's doctor, who gave me a note on his prescription pad, letting the hospital know what he felt I needed.  But, I wasn't able to go directly there.

At home, I needed to prepare for being admitted at hospital, once again.  Plus, I had some personal things I needed to do.

Later, P picked me up at home and drove me to the emergency room (ER).  To my surprise, the only waiting I did was to see the triage nurse.

After taking my information, she checked my blood pressure.  Then, we were taken into the ER area, where a bed was waiting for me.

When I saw the location, I recalled being there with my now deceased husband Gordon's mom.  It amazes me that even in extreme pain, my mind recalls flashbacks from the past. 

I was grateful for receiving assistance, immediately. 

Truly, I cannot say how long it was that I was in that bed.  Once I was examined, then I was moved to a bed where I would be treated.

Once in the treatment area bed, I was treated the way P's doctor had determined.

They put me on extremely strong antibiotics once again, intravenously.  I received medication for pain.

One thing that surprised me, was the fact that I didn't feel stressed.  I felt peace.

Peace that can only come from God.

Just as He told us in Philippians 4:7, "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

It seemed that I wasn't alone feeling peaceful. 

My daughter P, seemed to be the same way.  For this I praise God!  Thank You, Lord!

One thing I felt badly about was that she stayed with me until close to 6:00 a.m.

P kept telling me she didn't want to leave me.  I insisted that she go get some rest.  After all, she has a family to consider.

As she left to go home, to get some sleep, I prayed for her.


Until next time...
