Healing Begins

Thursday, August 20, 2009

Wow! Spark people are the most faithful, encouraging people on the planet! I am overwhelmed by the love and support I have received. I thank every one of you for your prayers.

I'm still in a good bit of pain--like my heart is throbbing in my ear; but even worse is the myriad of weird noises I am hearing. Of course, that's part of the healing process, but boy, is it strange!

One minute I'm hearing a buzzing noise, then a metallic clack like you'd hear in a manufacturing plant, then a clock ticking, etc. Right in the middle of all that will be the usual tinnitus tone that I get--much like the old "this is a test, " tone on the tv. Thank goodness for medication or I think I'd go completely crazy between the pain, throbbing and the weird noises. Of course I can't hear anything that's rea l, such as conversation. LOL

I'm feeling so hopeful now that maybe this really WILL work! Imagine! I could have a somewhat normal life again after a year and a half of misery! God is so good to me--I know without a shadow of a doubt that he led me to this doctor and this hospital. If I had done this surgery locally, no doubt I would have been sent home afterward and possibly died in my sleep, due to the problems with the anestethesia. Thank the Lord for teaching hospitals, good doctors, and a dedicated nurse who made everyone within shouting distance check me out for the breathing issues.

Even with the pain, fatigue, etc., I feel so incredibly blessed and hopeful for the first time in a long while. My God is so good and I give Him the glory and praise He deserves!

Thanks again, my friends, for being my advocate with the Great Healer!

    Oh WOW - what a trip. I'm sorry I wasn't here for most of it. emoticon I'm so thankful you came through it all and will soon be all well and good again. God is definitely good and was right there with you for the entire ride. PTL

    I have to let you know though - I now have a new grand daughter - born July 29th almost a month early due to preeclamsia and such. All are fine and doing well. So you see my attention was diverted for a good reason. Though no excuse is a good excuse. emoticon

    My prayers are still with you - and have been all along -- even if I didn't know what was happening -- for complete healing.

    Good Morning, Marlene!

    I thought you might find comfort in knowing that our Abba is putting you on the hearts & minds of your siblings-in-Christ. I was gently awakened this morning at 4:30 & as is my norm, with such early morning "wake up calls", I went to our Abba's Throne & rejoiced in spending time with Him. Holy Spirit put your sweet self before me - so, on your behalf, I petitioned God for His continued will to unfold in your healing process.

    Be blessed!

    I felt hopeless that I wasn't able to be there for you and help you before your surgery. i was directed to ou by an angel. i read your blogs and I felt guilty because you and I ahd not discussed this and you directed me to the vertigo team. I am so happy now that you are on the mend and getting better. Keep me posted and feel free to write anytime.

    Hey, Marlene! I, too, rejoice with you! Praise God for His love & concern - I agree that He led you to your new doctor & hospital - & yes, to that great nurse! (Of course I had to put in a good word for a good nurse! lol)

    As the saying goes, "This, too, shall pass....." Soon you'll be saying "what pain? what discomfort?" But you already know that, because you know The Great Physician & Healer!

    Enjoy your time off while you can (as much as you can) - & enjoy those drugs! You won't be able to take advantage of them much longer!
    emoticon Of course, you won't need them, either! Ain't God good?

    Keep your sense of humor, gal, it looks so good on you - I'll be watching for more updates.
