Today is waiting day 6.

Today I went to Sylvester in Deerfield Beach, to have my catheter lines flushed and for a dressing change. All was very normal according to my Nurse, Lahoma. I’m good to go until Friday for the catheter lines to be flushed again, and until Wednesday next week for another dressing change. Hopefully, that one will be at Sylvester in Miami, because that would mean that the transplant process will have started.

In the meantime, I’ve started collecting things in my ‘crash bag’ that I do not wish to forget to bring for my stay in Miami.

I received a wonderful comment from Scott on my About page wishing me well and having complete confidence that God will provide all the ‘extra assistance’ leading to a result of complete healing. While I’m thinking about it, when Jesus heals in the Gospel accounts, he asks the person in need of healing to do something, “Come here” or “Go and wash…”. In my case then, it must be, “Go and have your transplant, and I’ll do the rest.” That still, small voice has been saying for a while now, “You have nothing to fear in having a transplant.” I really am at peace with moving forward in this process.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for my healing.

Amen.
