Well, it's Christmas Eve today and I was supposed to go to Church for the Christmas Eve service followed by the dinner afterwards. I was looking forward to this for weeks. But somehow, God or fate or whatever you want to call it, had other plans.
I went to brunch with a friend on Thurday, all I had was some nachos and a quarter rack of BBQ ribs. Then I came home and had some frozen pizza which I toasted in the oven for 45 minutes, a small bowl of rice and a few pieces of savory pumpkin cake, it may not seem like much but I was violently ill afterwards, in the night, I threw up 3 times, I think I must have emptied my stomach of everything I ate!
That was not the end. After I threw up, I had chills. It was even worse the next day (Friday). I shivered the whole of the 4 hours on dialysis on Friday. I felt so bad I couldn't even finish the 4 hour treatment and ended 30 minutes early.
Fortunately for me, after a few phone calls, I managed to sell my Christmas Eve dinner ticket to a Christian woman with a Buddhist husband. The ticket that I sold was meant for this man, I really hope that he gets saved, then that will make my sacrifice more meaningful.
Well, I started on a course of antibiotics last night. The doctor just happened to be in the dialysis center on Friday. I feel better today but I still have not enough appetite for the Christmas dinner. I so afraid that if I eat too much, I might throw up again.
It's like I wasn't meant to go. It was like preordained by God. I mean, the doctor only comes to the center once a month, and he just happened to be there on Friday. And my Dad, who's a pharmacist, just happened to have exactly 5 days worth of doses of the prescribed antibiotics, as prescribed by the doctor. I didn't even have to go and buy the meds!
Weird huh? Maybe God really wants to save that man, (the husband of that lady). Who knows?
