Bring the Rain

Flowers are so beautiful! It's been rainy and chilly ever since I had surgery so it's great to have flowers that are so cheerful! I'm very thankful for the flowers, encouragement, and mostly prayers.



Such pretty flowers!
You can kind of see the bandage on the side of my neck. The ChloraPrep that I'm allergic to is on my face, chest, and my shoulders and the top my arms. They said they don't wash it off because it continues to fight bacteria for 48 hours.

You can see spots of the ChloraPrep on my arms and back. They also left those white stickers on me. I had them on my chest, stomach, and shoulders. They were used to monitor me.


My PICC line is out!! That arm has had a rash for 7 months from the PICC line. I'm ready for it to clear up! You can see the hole from the line in the middle of my arm. It is just a hole..very weird!

These are my incisions. Don't worry, they're covered up with bandages so you don't have to see them! The one on my chest is 2 inches long. I'm not sure about the one on my neck. I found out that the tube that runs between them is right under my skin. I can follow it with my finger. It's so weird!! It goes on top of my collar bone up to the incision in my neck. I'm still trying to get used to the port. I can feel it when I move or breathe..which is pretty much all the time since I'm usually always breathing. The port sticks up from under the skin and it is a circle.
You can also see how red and swollen my neck and chest are. Usually you can really see my collar bone and all the other bones. This was before the hives and swelling got really bad.

Thankfully the hives are getting better! My neck is still swollen from the incision though.

Bring the Rain by Mercy Me
I can count a million times
People asking me how I
Can praise You with all that I've gone through
The question just amazes me
Can circumstances possibly
Change who I forever am in You
Maybe since my life was changed
Long before these rainy days
It's never really ever crossed my mind
To turn my back on you oh Lord
My only shelter from the storms
But instead I draw closer through these times
So I pray
Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know they'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You
Jesus Bring the Rain
I am Yours regardless of
The dark clouds that may loom above
Because You are much greater than my pain
You who made a way for me
By suffering Your destiny
So tell me what's a little rain
So I pray
Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know they'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You
Jesus Bring the Rain
Holy, Holy, Holy
Is the Lord God Almighty"
"But as for me, I will always have hope;
I will praise you more and more." Psalm 71:14
I hope you have a great week!
