So, I have been struggling, a little bit, this last week.
I have been sick. Started with a sore throat and progressively got worse. Then Sunday, I realized, that I had pneumonia. Stayed home from church and made plans to go the the doctor on Monday.
By Monday morning, I was in pretty bad shape. So, my husband stayed home with me and I called the doctor. My doctor was on vacation. The office called me back and told me that another doctor would see me. I was more than a little grateful.
The doctor had x-rays done and sure enough...pneumonia. He gave me some of those super antibiotics. And sent me on my way. Had the prescription filled. I was in such a hurry to get this medicine in me, I took the pill in the car.
I have had pneumonia many times and know that when that first pill takes effect, I will not be in any more pain. So, I was excited to swallow that first pill.
A half an hour later...My head is getting hot. Then hives. Huge hives. I called the pharmacy and was told "GET TO THE HOSPITAL QUICK AND GET A SHOT". Well, ok. So, off we went.
Now, I have a lot of allergies. Life has been weird to me in this area. I can be allergic to something and then not allergic to it another. I coded on iodine years ago. Anyway...I am pretty could at telling how I am doing. So, I sat in the hospital parking lot for a while. Not wanting to waste theirs nor my time. But, my husband was more incident. He said he would not be able to rest for fear I would stop breathing. So, I gave in and went inside.
Now, I am a terror in a hospital. I figure they work for me and I have a big say in what they do and do not do. I am allergic to the preservatives in injectable drugs. NO SHOTS. Which I kinda like...because I hate shots.
After a wait, I was taken care of by pills and given new antibiotics for my lungs and treatment for the allergic reaction.
Not my best day. But, God is good. As I look back on it, I love to watch God's hand at work and how He orchestrates our entire day.
NO SATAN YOU CAN NOT KILL ME.
I have an ordained time to die and God knows when that is and your schemes will not hold up. When I am done...then I am done.
I love my God and I love to watch Satan's armor get dented now and then by his inept attempts at destruction.
