In The Hospital For A Long Haul

Friday, December 07, 2012

I am so sorry I have gotten in contact or done any blogs. I have been through a great deal since I last blogged. I am in the hospital and have been since November 28. I had 3 back surgeries in 6 days. I have a serious infection. But it can be cured. It will take weeks of being bombarded with antibotics. It has been hard physically and mentally. But the spiritual part keeps going strong. I was very upset at first when I found out the implant would be removed and I knew my pain would come back. I cried and told the LORD I wanted to just give up and come be with HIM. Then I spent time in prayer and ask the LORD to help me. I looked into his word for comfort and guidance. I than thanked the LORD for this burden and I realized GOD is going to use me for something that will bring glory to HIS name. I have had several days to witness to others and share the love of CHRIST. Even though I went through those 3 back surgeries in just 6 days I have bounced back. The nurses all are amazing at my recovery from that many surgeries. One told me that frankly after reading my chart they all expected me to be bed ridden and unable to get up without help. I have been able to bath alone, walk, and get myself in and out of bed. They said they did know how I was doing it. I told them many were praying for me and the LORD loves me and is helping me in this recovery. The doctors put a 1/2 inch tubes in my back and connected them to a suction machine. Great deal of discomfort. It was very hard to deal with. I had wires and tubes everywhere. I would not use a bedpan. I told them at first to help me get up and sit on the potty. Soon I was able to do it myself. I am still very ill. There is still some ifection in my body. It is eating up all my nutritents from my body. The doctor is making me eat 1800+ calories a day. I was only eating 1200 to 1400 calories a day. That was what my DIabetic Dietian told me to do. I have gained 6 pound back, because of it. The doctor says I have to eat a lot to keep up with the bacteria that is eating my proteins. I am in physical therapy to help keep me strong. I was really grateful for that. I have been in the eleven days and they are talking about me staying for 4 more weeks. Also my insurance is giving us heck. So pray about all of this. My health is in dire problems. I know the LORD will use this to strength me and help me to share him with others. Thank you for praying for me. I am truely blessed to have you as a friend. I must quit now and lie down.

    I've been missing you around the chats and challenges, now I understand why. I admire your strength, and will keep you in my prayers. EAT those calories the DR wants you to, get better, then worry about the weight again. Keep us posted. :)

    I am so sorry for all you have suffered so much, but I know G*d does not Forsake his own children. I know he also gives us even more strength when we are going thru such bad things' and we are even more in his PRESENCE when we are suffering. You will definitely be in my prayers and thoughts for healing and to give G*D the Glory for all this suffering. I will also believe he will get you thru it all and your spine will heal and your pain will dissipate! All despite not having the implant. G*D will do the implanting and healing for you! G*d is the Great Physician! Just rest in him! I know it may sound redundant because you though you were doing the right thing getting it; but remember as Joseph was jailed for doing the right thing but he continued his trusting in G*D and came out better for it! Remember he came out better from his suffering and a greater testimony of G*ds goodness and we know of his suffering! You will too. In the hands of G*d we are like diamonds in the making! May you shine for G*D thru it all!

    Hi BJPENNY 70,

I am sorry to hear about your health problems. I work in a Rehab facility and daily see the work of Our Awesome God. I have seen patients come in that we thought would never leave our facility again, but with the inner strength God gives them they are up working with physical therapy and they do return home with their loved ones. It is my prayer that God will give you the strength to press on and on days when you don't think you can go another step keep your chin up and eye on the higher prize. I will check back regularly to see how you are doing. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Keeping SP friends posted is also a great stress buster and allows us a chance to support you. Keep blogging. Peace to you, your family, and those who are caring for you.
