THAT THE BATTLE BELONGS TO THE LORD………..
I had the second Echocardiogram which I shared before that I was going to have and the Medical Technician who preformed it told me when I asked about my Heart that it was functioning normally but that my Valve was very small, she didn’t say it was closing or that I could die at any time as I had been told before so I felt reassured that I was not in acute danger.
But my Doctor phoned me after he received the report from the Cardiologist who had requested this second Echocardiogram when I shared why I felt it may be needed. He said that now my Heart was also not functioning as it should be and advised that I needed to have Open Heart Surgery.
But with having been warned that I could die having this Operation I was not really looking forward to it but than I remembered that like all of His Redeemed Children my Life was in my Abba Father’s Hands and that the years Allotted to me on earth would be fulfilled and if needed extended as it had happened before in my past more than once and also with knowing as Christians we have a lot to look forward to in Eternity, I was no longer fearful and waited patiently to hear from The Prince Charles Hospital.
The following Wednesday a Woman from the Hospital phoned me and said they wanted me to come in the next day at 12am to be prepared to have my Operation on Friday the day after.
There was not much time left to do what was needed and because Ron was going on his yearly Golf trip with his Brother the following week and couldn’t look after Mo-Joe and Mickey Moo for me as we had previously arranged when the time came for me to have the Operation for my Heart.
So Ron suggested that I asked Nick his Grandson if he would look after them and even with such short notice Nick agreed. I’m very Thankful for Nick, he is a very Caring young Man, Respectful and Trustworthy and always willing to Help if needed. Nick comes and shares Lunch with me every Tuesday and sometimes with my other friends too and also when needed Mows my Lawn and removes rubbish too.
.Nick came over later that day and I showed him where things were and what was needed to care for the M and M’s during my time in Hospital and than I stayed up most of the night organizing what I needed to take to Hospital with me and than I cleaned up the second Bedroom which I mainly use for my Craft and Storage and after I finished making the bed for Nick, I prepared the meals for Mo-Joe and Mickey Moo for the next 3 weeks and yes I was exhausted but after a few hours sleep I felt much better.
But I remembered later when I was having Breakfast that Mo-Joe and Mickey Moo hadn’t had their yearly Vaccinations or their Heart Worm injections. I had recently been trying to find a good Vet closer to home so they could have them. But now with not knowing how long I would be in Hospital or how long it would be before I would be able to organize for them to have their Injections, I was very concerned and phoned Ron who reassured me he would come much earlier than we had arranged for him to take me to Prince Charles Hospital and he would take Mo-Joe and Mickey Moo to the Vet that I had phoned in the next Suburb. I was Thankful that the new Vet was caring and they were well looked after, yes it was all a bit of a rush but it worked out well.
When we got home from the Vets and we were just about to leave to go to the Prince Charles Hospital I had a Phone call from them and they said they were now over booked and my Operation would have to be put off for another couple of weeks, I was upset but nothing could be done, Hospitals have Emergencies and they have Priority.
Than as if I hadn’t been through enough physically and emotionally on Sunday coming home from Church my Mobility Scooter hit a ledge and overturned on top of me as it had done before. Accidents do happen to everybody in Life and so does Chance as confirmed in Scripture but also confirmed as God’s Truth below is that as His Redeemed Children we don’t go through hardship alone and we are helped to endure when needed.
Isaiah 43:1-3 …. Do not be afraid for I have ransomed you. I have called you by Name you are Mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I Am The Lord, your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”
Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the Thoughts that I think toward you, saith The Lord, Thoughts of Peace and Not of evil, to give you an Expected End.
Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth Not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.
But with now having had this Accident I was trapped and in acute Pain from the impact of my left side hitting the concrete. People who saw the accident happen and heard my crying stopped to help me including a young Couple coming home from their Church Service, the young Woman bent down and spoke softly to me and than held my hand and prayed and I felt a lot Calmer.
The Ambulance arrived and took me to Caboolture Hospital, the Paramedics were once again very Caring and made sure I was in no danger and amazingly the ECG that they did on the way to the Hospital showed my Heart was still functioning normally, no wonder I get confused.
When I arrived at the Hospital the Emergency Staff and their Nurses and Doctors were also very Caring and Efficient. Thankfully I had no head injuries or Tendon damage this time and there were no bones broken but I’m very bruised on my left side of my body and it’s sore to touch and to sleep on but it could have been a lot worse.
A Man from the Pet Barn just up the road from where the accident happened looked after my Scooter until Ron’s Daughter Carolyn kindly came and drove it home for me both of which I’m very Thankful for and except for one Mirror that was broken when the Scooter hit the concrete there was no other noticeable damage but it is going to be checked just in case there is with the Suspension problems etc.
Yes I am indeed Thanking God for His intervention when needed …. Oh how He Loves you and Me!
Matthew 11:28 -30 Come unto Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me for I am meek and lowly in Heart and ye shall find Rest unto your Souls. For My Yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Thank you all again for your Faithfulness to Pray for me during this Storm and for all those who need your Prayer Support. God Hears and Answers our Heartfelt Prayers according to His Good Will for us and for those we Pray for.
Ephesians 6:17-19 And take the Helmet of Salvation and the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God: Praying always with all Prayer and Supplication in the Spirit and watching thereunto with all Perseverance and Supplication for all Saints;
