Good morning! I didn’t post anything yesterday because didn’t have the energy and used what energy I had with Nat as he helped me work with the rehab facility to go home today!
I am now fully able to function independently, although still lack energy. Not only did this sickness steal my strength, it altered my body’s chemical situation so that I react differently to my medications. The biggest challenge has been in my inability to sleep. However, the Lord guided me in asking the right questions and an adjustment was made that resolved my sleeplessness. How wonderful to sleep again and get a little surge of strength!
I must say that my every response in this process has not been one of praise; the Lord has been uncovering my impatience, my love of having control in my life and my dislike of being told what to do right down to what to eat and wear. Hmmm, amazing how I can hide my natural desire to be independent.
Well, I am thankful for God’s gracious patience, kind firmness and persistent working in my life. And for Nat’s being here now to help with the transition home and care for Barbara. It will be a big adjustment for us all as I move home today, so would appreciate your prayers. Warmly, Steve
