However the Lord wants to do is good too. We just have to Trust Him.

I can't believe how different I feel to last Friday...I'm thankful to God for antibiotics and steroids to help me get more stable.

Janet continuing to remember your mil in prayer....
And please God this is the buyer they've been waiting for!! Also for Mitch...and his new appointment, praying he does really well in his new post.

I'm still in need of prayer too.
Yesterday afternoon I saw my general doctor because it was my last day of antibiotics and my chest coughing was as bad as ever. She said my breathing was tight and some mild crackles. So stop the 20mg steroids a day and back up to 30mg again. I was so disappointed!! She said I was stuck between a rock & a hard place but if I didn't I'd be spending Christmas in hospital. So...home in the warm and resting this w/e to try and stabilise my breathing again.

Praying for the other needs listed too...

Thanks Janet for requesting prayer. My MIL has been transferred to a swing bed in another hospital so they can continue monitoring her meds and giving her PT. She is so tired and weak. Still needs lots of prayers.

Leah and Mitch's house was shown in C'dale yesterday. Praying that an offer comes through. They so need to be out from under that burden. Also please remember Mitch as he is starting a new profession. Has great potential to really be successful.


Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in (me) will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

From what I've heard about cataract surgery from my sil everything does settle down again. Praying yours does too.

Can't hardly believe that on Friday I started with a chesty cough...haven't had one in so many years so was in ER yesterday for antibiotics!! Praying they clear it up very quickly!!

Praying for the other needs listed too. I haven't heard anything new about JanetR's mil...as far as I know she's still in the hospital.

Sounds like you have excellent medical team. Good to have exercises to build up your lungs. I had those and they really work.

Has cataract surgery on my second eye. Distant vision is incredible but issues with near vision. Hope this improves by next week.

Was an extremely long day yesterday because we went into another town afterwards but Joseph felt unwell, through lack of sleep I might add.
Anyway, the doctor listened to my chest & lungs and said they were all clear now. Downside is that when I changed from 6x5 days of steroids to 5x5 days it affected my breathing. So as today was my last day on 5 I have to continue for another 7 days and every time I go down to the next dose it will be for 7 days and not 5. At this rate I shan't finish until 11th January. So now I need a bone protector med too. The anti fungal testing won't be checked for 3 months. She's going to speak to my GP about getting me transferred across to herself under the NHS and said that could be done fairly easily because I'm not anew patient. But any problems just to call her sec this hospital and they'll sort me out. She may see me again though in January.
Then onto the physio...what a nice (Indian) man. Took all the history and listened to my chest & lungs and agreed no sputum in the lungs which is why I get just the dry cough. So it's about getting me to use my lungs efficiently. Have a sheet with 2 exercises to do...only once time a day for a week at first though...everything slowly. He also went up to the ward to get me a Mediflo duo machine to take home so I could check my progress. At the moment I can about do no.1 not even no. 2 but he hopes I can progress to no.5. It's a clever little machine where your air is floating a little ball and when you air fails it drops of course. He asked me about my diet and if I could eat rice? No I said...doesn't move through my system. He told me about one called Matta Rice (red) and is more easily digestible. I'm going to give that a try. He'll review me again in one month to see what progress I've made.
Then I thought I chase the CT scan for the sinuses...that's already booked for next Thursday...8.30am! nice early start that morning!!

Carol....good to know your plans. Will be remembering your mission team and those needs in prayer.

Nellie, that is better news for your cat's health.

I know that JanetR's mother in law is poorly in hospital so please can we remember her and the family in prayer.

I see the respiratory doctor tomorrow to see how I'm doing on all the meds to stablise me. Straight afterwards I see the physio, could be for an assessment but will update more when I've had those appointments.
The steroid treatment is making me very tired because of sleep disruption. I've already started the fungal meds to try and irradiate it from my body so am having weekly liver function blood tests. Thanks again for your prayers.

Carol, so glad to hear about your mission trip and all that you will be doing! Will you be close to any areas where Christians are being persecuted? I am praying and will continue to do so. Please do let us hear from you if you're able to get online.

I am leaving for India on Monday, December 5th until Saturday January 21st. I will be there with a team and we will be working with church planters in discipling new believers, sharing testimonies, preaching, telling stories, working with children in the children's homes. Would you pray for us? Pray for:
~ Our ministry times
~ Our health
~ Our safety
~ Divine appointments

Thank you. I will update when I return. If I can get online at all while I'm there, I will try to send updates.

Carol

My kitty's asthma is still bothering her. However the vet has taken her off of the medicine since that was causing her loss of appetite and she is now eating well.

Please share your prayer needs, updates and praises so we can lift each other up . . .

Janet, so sorry that you've been having such a rough time! Continuing to lift you up.

JanetR, have Leah and Mitch been able to sell their house yet? Being out from under two mortgage payments will be such a relief.

Michelle, you've been missed! How are you doing?

Nellie, how's your sweet kitty? I'm a cat person myself and I know you were concerned.
