The Healing Process – #30

My next doctor’s appointment was 2 weeks after my release from the hospital. I had to make that 140-mile ride to and from the hospital. I went to the doctor on October 24th, to have my staples and drainage bag removed. I made the ride fine, the nurse removed some of my staples and the drainage bag was left in. I was scheduled to return in another five days. So, we made the trip again five days later. My remaining staples and drainage bag were both removed 21 days after surgery. By now I have moved from the massage chair to the sofa recliner. I was still a little sore for the hole in my side from the drainage tube. They did not put stitches in when they removed the tube, I personally thought a couple of stitches would have been helpful. Thank God, I’m on my way to recovery. Before I left the doctor’s office, I was scheduled to have surgery for the placement of a vascular access port. This was a surgery that I did not know I was having. It was explained to me what it was for before I left the doctor’s office. The vascular access port is for my chemo infusion. Jeremiah 33:6, Behold, I will bring it health and cure and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth. Now I just need to take it easy and walk as much as possible. I have a walking path around the inside of the house. My faithful companion (Diamond) made each step with me. I have asked the LORD to give me peace and endurance since the beginning of my journey. I would spend most of my day and night looking up scriptures (and watching TV). As I was recording the scriptures, I knew something was wrong. I called the doctor’s office and went in for another doctor’s appointment on November 2nd.
