Who Gives Kudos:




In January I wrote about this topic. My,how time changes things! It wasn't only time that changed but my relationship with God has grown closer and my body has grown weaker. His ways are certainly higher than ours. He never ceases to amaze me.

My intentions to do the video fell through. My surgery was cancelled the day before by my primary care doctor. The lawyers I hired to sue the second surgeon of my foot did nothing as I discovered near the second anniversary date of the surgery. Deep down inside I knew God didn't want me suing, but I was doing it my way. I'm glad it failed. I called the practice manager and complained about the surgeon and my current state of affairs. I explained that no medical malpractice lawyers would touch this powerful group and I was in a mess. He ended up getting me an appointment two days later with that very surgeon I wanted to sue. I went with a recorder and he came in with a nurse! It was awkward and I ate some humble pie. He, of course, was not aware of the difficulties I had been through. He explained how he decided on the angle of fusion. He didn't admit he made a mistake. He did say he was willing to work with me and that the facts are - no more surgeries! If I had had that scheduled surgery he said it would have weakened my foot much more. Score 1 for my PCP, a man I believe is led by the Lord!

During these last few months, my knee has sustained two twisting injuries causing swelling and pain. Dx - arthritis of the knee cap. An unwanted kenalog shot did more harm than good. Meanwhile my foot was in more trouble. I followed the doctor's directions about getting a toe sleeve to put over the toe that receives the most pressure to stop the painful callus that continually formed. Neither of us could have known I would be allergic to the material causing a break down in the skin, and that the two "married" toes were so close together, a blister also formed between them. Walking is far too painful so I must put more weight on the crutches. I had to make two visits to him this week, but it seemed important that he know the full extent of what I am going through. I also needed his help. An infection would spell disaster at this point!

Back to the knee. Guess who must go through PT before I can have a synvistic shot? I have purposed to do my part and feel God has given me another chance to strengthen my very weak legs. With a marvelous, creative PT in charge, it is easier to do. She's holding me accountable yet she realizes my limitations and when I can't do something one way, she comes up with another. I also am on medication now to hopefully stop the stiffening episodes this exercise sparks.

God has been showing me how importaant it is for me to stay and practice His Word until He's ready for me to move on. In the Living Bible Romans 12:2 it says: "Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do and think. Then you will learn from your own experience how his ways will really satisfy you." Thus not suing the doctor as the world would do. That doctor, I'm sure, has the opportunity to learn some things.

He also has me in Phillipians 4:4-8. Just 4-7; "Always be full of joy in the Lord; I say it again, rejoice! Let everyone see that you are unselfish and considerate in all you do. Remember that the Lord is coming soon. Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything, tell God your needs, and don't forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus." The first thing God brought to my mind was the fact that I denied worrying. He nailed me on that one. I've had opportunity to practice and have failed at times, but I'm not discouraged. I'm learning. I've always had a problem identifying my needs so I'm working on that. There is nothing better than the peace God provides and the loss of it is a definite warning sign.

It's Saturday and I haven't done my exercises so I must cease and get to it while I am thinking about it!    



Mood: cheerful
