Right now I could shake this computer. It isn’t giving me a new post when I want to write. So now, I am using the Quick Draft. I am old-fashioned. I just like to write, when I set out to write. Why the delays? I have no idea.
I saved the Quick Draft, and now I will continue writing. I don’t like this slowness that is happening on Word Press. I hope someone from there will have pity on this writer. I need to write daily. This week has been a rough one.
Monday was spent getting ready to go to the hospital for surgery. I packed, and cleaned the house. Then I went with Ed to the church. He did some things on the computer, and I went into the sanctuary, and began praying about what was going to happen, Tuesday. We were scheduled to come early…like 6:30 A.M.
Surgery happened the next day. We were on time, but the hospital wasn’t. We waited in the room for a while. Then they came to get me. I had to put on a gown, and I climbed up on the bed. Ed came to see me, and we talked.
I have a new pacemaker, and they took out a lead wire from the other pacemaker when they took the old one out. I was out for a while, and when they brought me back, I was not ready to go home. Ed said I would stay the night. He stayed with me for a while. He walked out after saying good-bye, and got some rest. One other person came to see me. They walked out together.
The next day I was dismissed. I had been up all night, and made a million trips to the bathroom. The nurses, and staff were wonderful, and now I am recovering.
I have been itching, so we went to the emergency room to get this tested . We went yesterday, which was our Anniversary. We have been married 45 years. I thought it was necessary to celebrate this one in style. Ed took Isaac, and me to a restaurant after I went to the emergency room to check out my places. I have a rash, several places. All the rash on my chest is red, and looks ugly. The staff took a scraping to test it in the lab . My blood work was wonderful.
Last year about Fall, I had a ,new, lead wire put in, and surgery was at one of the local hospitals. I wound up itching, and the doctor had to go back into the sight, and take out the staph infection. It was easy to find.
I have broken out. I may be allergic to the glue at the surgery sight.I have some salve to put on all those little, bumps. Now I am itching again.This is the fifth, day from the surgery. I was careful to put salve on the bumps. I will know soon about what this is. I also have a doctor’s appointment next week.
I came on Word Press, thinking that I could quickly write something, and go tend to my itching. I couldn’t get an empty, new post to appear. It did appear, and there was red above the form, saying that an error had occurred.
The form disappeared, so I went to the second, best, thing. I saved the rough draft, and it was small. Then I called it back by its title, and I have typed since.
Many times in life I find that we go through things that try our patience. This has tried my patience, and frankly, the whole week has been a hard one for me. I am thankful to be alive, and to know that I am getting better. If you know the Lord, please say a prayer for me. I need to be about His business, but I may not make it for a week or two. In the meantime, I am reading, and writing.
You might read 2 Kings 4: 18-31. It is with the same courage that I write today. I hope you have a blessed day, and I will write more because I have this new pacemaker!
