It sure to a looong time getting out of there yesterday...At one point Jeff and I were sitting on the edge of the bed watching most of the other patients on the floor leaving one after another...Jeff said it looked like a parade and I wasn't in it!
I woke up early as usual, showered, got dressed, turned down the offer for the shot to keep you from getting a blood clot from lying in bed too much (I never needed it in the first place...on the 3rd which was Monday, I rearranged my room...when the nurses seen it they said to go ahead, it was my room and if I wanted to switch the bed around they would help!)
I told the nurse to call the doctor as soon as she took my morning temp 97.6 degrees, ordered my breakfast and waited for Jeff.
So when I finally got home Buddy did his usual circle dance around me...all sniff and lick, and ears and tail everywhere...Sasha ran up to me as I was coming towards the front door, and then she gleefully jumped into her favorite snow bank and started to talk...But as soon as I went into the house she tugged on my pant leg with her teeth! I never seen her do that before!
I am so blessed by my online friends who are my prayer warriors and cheerleaders. I hope you all don't mind that I bragged about you to my nurses :)
One of the nurses came into my room and caught me teary eyed...I told her not to worry, I was crying happy tears from reading your comments...I told her my friends are all praying for me.
Before I left I tried to get a picture of the dry erase board so you could all see what one of my sweet nurses wrote me...I wrote -God Bless & Thanks for the great care!-Lisa
I think of them all as angels.
I spoke with the hospital Chaplin and told them about my journey through 'The Rooms' He liked that. It was nice to pray with him. Turns out we have some friends in common.
Well, today is another day to walk through another of those rooms.
After my shower this morning, my hair began to really fall out. Not in huge clumps, but it was non-ending.
So I took matters into my own hands and cut it all off!
& you know what...It felt good!
I put on some make-up, got dressed in some bright cheery Valentine's Day colors, and when I put my wig on it felt nice on my head. (unlike when I tried wearing it over my hair).
That second picture is of me today.
Now, I want to tell you what happened to me last night...
I had a horrible nightmare that can only be described as an attack from the enemy...Without going into too many gory details...
Jeff was carrying me...I had been severely wounded...He needed to go somewhere so he handed me to a kind old man and asked him to please feed me, the man said "of course".....I lay slumped against the old man, too weak to move, but conscious....As soon as Jeff turned his back...the old man said I will feed her and began to eat me.
Because of some of the things the old man said to me in the dream, I know it was a spiritual attack...I rebuked it in Jesus' name and said:
Greater is He that is within me than he that is in the world!
So then I woke Jeff up, told him the dream, and then asked him to pray....I grabbed my Bible while Jeff hugged me and read many scriptures...And before turning out the light I read the little card that is tucked into my lampshade. (Thanks again, Chelle!)
Be strong and courageous; DO NOT BE AFRAID OR TERRIFIED, for the LORD your GOD goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
~Blessings & Love~
and remember, we are...
