Stay Cool! God Bless

{September 2, 2016}   A little spill about me. ;-)

This year started out wonderful.  With the winter season, I felt as fit as any healthy human being.  I didn’t have to use a nebulizer machine at all.  The machine is something I have to use to take breathing treatments, which are medicines that my doctor wants me to inhale with air.  The air causes painful gases sometimes.  I was glad I didn’t need to use the machine during this time.

Then spring set in.  Oh my gosh!  With out warning, my body took a dive.  I was struggling to interact with others verbally and physically.  During our VBS week, I was limited in my abilities.  I was able to run the sound system, video, and mics.  I couldn’t sing and dance, so the organizers gave me a few helpers.  I was very appreciative of their help.  For those of you who are wondering what VBS stands for, it is an acronym for Vacation Bible School.

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, June 14, my body went down.  No movement!  I didn’t have the strength to hold my body up.  Oh that wasn’t the end, my vocal cords weren’t producing a sound, not even a whisper.  I didn’t have enough oxygen in my body.  I was put on oxygen.  In time, I was able to come off of it, but today, Sept 2, I find myself back on it.  Basically caught a cold and my body was struggling.  The oxygen helps the muscles to get the oxygen it needs and my lungs can relax.  I have been on antibiotics now for 5 days.  I think it worked.  I hope I am at the end of this cold.  I wish I could say my severe lung disease was over, but they say this condition will remain the rest of my life.  YUCK!  NOT Happy about that.  BUT What CAN I DO about it except keep praying asking God to heal me.

I feel like Paul, when God tells him, in his weakness, I am strong.  I feel like God tells me that His strength is sufficient and through my weakness, He will prevail.  I can only hope my life brings the Lord the glory He deserves.  I don’t like, not being allowed to work in my field of study.  A few weeks ago, I had a follow up with one of my three specialist, the lungs, and She said to hold off on returning just yet.  To wait until the Xolair gets into my system, to see if that will help improve my body.  Well one month later and 3 shots of Xolair, I have not seen or felt much improvement.  It  could be this summer and rain weather.  All I know, I now have been sent by three doctors to physical therapy rehab at the hospital.  I will be evaluated to determine course of action to regain strength in my body.  Which I think is ironic.  Why ironic?  Because when I was 13 ish, I began working out with aerobics and my first weight system was a DP, red seats and silver metal bars.  I haven’t seen one of those since my early teens.  I have new equipment sitting around, because as my body got weak, I couldn’t use them.  Now, I am being sent to a rehab facility to use their equipment and have guidance.  To teach me how not to over do it.  Because if I work out and over do it, I beat the purpose of stabilizing my lung disease.

Anyway, I have found NEW interests.  Sewing, painting, drawing, crafting, wood working, screen painting , airbrushing, quilting, designing, re-upholstery, and an old, old favorite, audio/video production.  I guess you could say, I am re-finding myself.  I will take you guys with me on my journey.

If you would follow me, I’d appreciate it.  Please comment.  I will do my best to reply promptly.

For now, I will finish here.  I look forward to your encouraging words.
