Although I came home from the hospital on November 5, my ten-day stay weakened me so much that I am just beginning to regain my ability to type. My diagnosis was initially anemia and malnutrition, but during my stay I developed a blood infection. I returned home with a Hickman port, which allows visiting nurses to give me daily IV antibiotics.
But let’s not make this article another update on my health, okay? I do appreciate your prayers during my absence, and I want to assure you that I am doing better. At the same time, I prefer to focus this post on something the Lord taught me while I was in that hospital bed.

Tomorrow morning I’ll return to Milton Hospital for extensive testing. My legs are terribly swollen (I’m turning into an elephant), all my food tastes so metallic that I don’t eat much, and my red blood cell count keeps dropping. Queasiness separates me from eating supper each evening. I’m physically exhausted, and frequently fall asleep at my desk.
Spiritually, I’m not doing well. Sometimes I question my salvation because of my anger and frustration. Praise God, He always brings me back to trusting Him for my salvation!
Some of you have generously sent Kindle books and PayPal gifts. I’m deeply grateful for your love and support. At this point, however, I need to ask that you not send anything further until I’ve returned home. Unlike most people, I can’t operate a smart phone or a tablet, meaning that I have no way of handling digital gifts until I’m back on my computer. Additionally, I won’t be able to moderate comments on this blog.
Thank you for your support and understanding. I look forward to recovering and writing articles that will serve you.
