Small Victories

Well, this weekend was busy and good! I didn't have a lot going on, I just got out of the house five days in a row!! My friend had surgery so I got to hang out with her everyday, which was great! On Sunday I was pretty wiped out. I still went to church though. I was debating staying home because I didn't feel good. I'm so glad I went! I know I go to church a lot for selfish reasons, so I love when God brings us to church and the lesson is just what we needed. The lesson in class was about sharing our story with people. It was a great lesson!
One of the key things I have learned is to look for small victories that God has gotten me through. Getting out of the house doesn't sound like a big deal for most people. But God blessed me with five days of feeling okay so that I could be there for my friend! Life would seem so much worse if we didn't look at the small victories. No I'm not physically well, but I got to leave my house for five days in a row!!
Today I was supposed to see my pain management team at the hospital, but they cancelled it. We've had to reschedule it several times since I had the flu so we are ready to see them.
On Thursday I go to the sleep specialist. We've rescheduled that appointment several times too. Hopefully I will be able to go!
Another strange thing that has happened is that my PICC line hole is still there.. my nurse said that it might never close in all the way. It's a little weird!
I haven't been sleeping well so I've been more worn out. I also have a cold right now..
Today I am thankful for the the medical knowledge that we do have.

"Even though the fig trees have no blossoms,
and there are no grapes on the vines;
even though the olive crop fails,
and the fields lie empty and barren;
even though the flocks die in the fields,
and the cattle barns are empty,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord!
I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!
The Sovereign Lord is my strength!
He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights."
Habakkuk 3:17-19
