Day 2 post surgery… few steps forward, one step back. I had a little smear in my diaper, they have let me drink some Pedialite.. getting less morphine and now oxycodone for pain management… about to get a glycerine suppository to help me have a bm. Bad stuff is that I do have some fluid in/around the cells of my left lung and that is worse than yesterday (but thankfully I still am only on half a liter of oxygen) also still have the fluid in the site where my organs had moved up – that may take a few days to reabsorb. Please pray that the fluid in places where it should be goes away.. I’d like to feel better. I wish these larger humans could figure out how to make me feel better. Mama is saying lots of prayers to Abba Father to heal me and praying Phillipians 4:4….
Psalm 23: A Psalm of David
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need.
2 He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams.
3 He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.
4 Even when I walk through the darkest valley,[a] I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.
5 You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.
6 Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
5:40 PM After I prayed this Psalm and told God to help me because I was feeling weary and scared and feeling the worry creep back in…. the Doctor came in and said she spoke with the Surgeon Fellow about the fluid and he is not worried about it at all. This is to be expected given where they were fixing her. They won’t do an Xray for a few more days again since it should just reabsorb. Thank God for being a God that hears our cries and answers them. Thank you for giving me strength and lifting me back up.
