Happy weekend. It’s a joyous day for me because I’m celebrating the fact that I’m no longer in the hospital, and there has been a bit of improvement.
I have had to take some time away from the blog lately due to my health worsening due to a severe bowel blockage. I was in the hospital over a week and just returned home Monday. Because of my previous surgeries and current physical condition surgery could have been life-threatening. The week was spent with so many up and down emotions from my family.
Months ago my colon surgeon said there was nothing else he could do to help me because surgery would be hard on my body. While at hospital he said if you don’t have the surgery you will die and if you do you might also very likely die from complications during recovery. Of course no one wants to hear that but we prayed and God heard. I’m home now and thank God I did not have to have surgery. Their main concern is that I continue to keep food and liquids down. Also, Hospice has been a huge help in getting my meds adjusted and keeping me comfortable.
For all those who have prayed thank you so much. I will go into more details in the future but God performed a miracle in regards to surgery. The doctors felt sure it would be needed but God had other plans. My heart and mind is so thankful for Jesus. I don’t know what I would do without Him.
There will be some new posts coming next week and a couple will be guest posts from author DiAnn Mills. Also, the Nehemiah series I started a long time ago, I will finally finish it. I love the book of tNehemiah. It always encourages and challenges me. I will close with one of my favorite verses during this season which states,
Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength. ~ Nehemiah 8:10
