I just want to thank
you all for praying me through these last couple weeks of dialysis.
For a moment, I thought I was going to have to go back into the
hospital. Thanks to your prayers and a lot of technical savvy,
the Perma Cath that I have installed has opened up. I was able
to have a successful dialysis. Whenever the nurse would start
the machine, I would put my hand over my mouth and pray in the
Spirit. I really didn't care if the nurses heard me. All I wanted
was to break through and ask the Lord to dialyze successfully.
I just went to the
doctor this week (Neurosurgeon) He seems to feel that it is best
to leave things status quo because of my restricted blood vessels.
We will probably delay any surgery for a little while. Actually,
we are trying to buy a little time to give my body a little rest.
The last thing that I want to do is to go onto CAPD (Peritoneal
dialysis) I have been there, and done that. I would like to think
that I have moved on. Peritoneal dialysis does have its advantages.
I don't have to restrict my fluids as much, and don't have to
have such a strict diet. We all know how I love to eat.
Speaking of eating,
we just got a Krispy Kream Donut franchise in town. Every opportunity
I get, I go out there to buy donuts for the staff here at the
retirement facility of course. Just pray for me.
I have really focused
in on our bible study. We are continuing in Genesis. We broke
away during the Easter season to contemplate trial, crucifixion,
death, burial, but most of all resurrection.
I have my life and
my family, and I can honestly say that I am happier than I have
been in my whole life. I am doing what God wants me to do. It
is most fulfilling to be obedient to the Lord.
If I were to quote
a song, it would be Trust and obey, for there's not other way
to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
