Please Pray...

If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) for a while, you'll know that I've been receiving medical nursing care.

Twice daily is what I've had for a while.  This is what the surgeon/specialist told CCAC (our Canadian government organization that provides care at home) I needed.

When they first heard this, they didn't really want me to have care twice daily.  But, since the packing was falling out a couple of times per day, it was necessary.

As I mentioned previously, an ET nurse who works from Windsor to Ottawa, came to see me.  She and my care nurse checked me out.  As I told you in the past, she agreed that the packing needed to be able to be covered all the time.

Various items have been used to cover the packing.  And, it has not stayed in place.  Therefore, the packing has been still falling out very often.

On Wednesday, January 4th, when my care nurse showed up in the morning, she let me know that I wasn't to have any nursing care in the evenings, anymore.

After she left, I called her employment organization.  Then, I received a call from the ET nurse, who was actually in Ottawa at the time.

We spoke about the situation. 

She agreed that since the packing was still falling out most often, I would have a nurse that evening.  Plus, starting the next morning, she said something different would be used to cover the packing... and I would have nursing care for two (2) following days, twice daily.

Apparently, they'll be using something has hasn't been used in over seven (7) weeks, to cover the packing.  So, she feels I will only need the care once per day.

It was shocking that I never heard to know who was coming.  So, I called the nursing organization later, and was told that I shouldn't have any care.

Once again, I had to explain what was decided by the ET nurse.  Even so, I ended up not having a normal care show up.  Instead, I had a special nurse show up, who only goes to help people with special needs.

Please know that I found this situation truly upsetting.

I even mentioned that I felt I was feeling stressed, and upset that it seemed like they were trying to hurt me, instead of doing what the doctor said I needed.

Why did I feel upset?

I truly want to be healed.  Totally healed. 

I did not want to experience a problem like I had in the past, after a previous surgery, which happened when my care was reduced.

Plus, knowing that I am close to being healed, I didn't want a problem to arise that might cause me to have extended medical care.

After I cried for a short time, I just prayed.  And, thanked God for helping me, always.  After all, I trust Him to do what I need.

Thinking of this, brought to mind, Proverbs 3:5, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding."

Yes, I trust in the Lord, with all my heart... and I don't lean unto my own understanding.  I realize that God's will is done.  Not mine. 

Yes, I trust Him!  Always.  And, am thankful that He is in control, instead of me.

Something good happened, later.

The nurse arrived and I found she was very nice to me.  She agreed that I needed the care... especially since the packing had fallen out, again.

On her way out, I asked her if she felt I was healing.  She did.  And, told me that she thought I would probably be healed in a week or two (2).

This LwL entry is close to a week after this medical treatment occurred that evening.  I'm praying that when I see the ET nurse this coming Friday, that she'll let me know I am healed.

Please pray for me.  Pray that God will heal me, without any further time needed for medical care.

Thank you.  May God bless you!

Until next time...
