Signs That the Surgery is Working!

Sunday, August 30, 2009


I'm so thankful to report that there are finally signs that the surgery may be successful! It has rained two days in a row and I didn't get vertigo or nausea! That is what we were hoping for! The change in pressure does not seem to be affecting my body in the same way as before the surgery!

I even worked the last couple of days of the week, but was totally exhausted by the end of the day. (I admit I pushed myself too hard and probably should have waited til next week.) I will not see the doctor for post-op exam until September 9th. In the meantime, I expect to get a little better each day. I even walked without the cane most of the time during the last couple days. Balance, of course, remains a problem and there's nothing to be done about that.

God is working in His time and I thank each of you who lifted a prayer for me. It's the most wonderful gift for someone to speak to God on my behalf!

Thank you, my friends, and brothers and sisters in Christ.

    Dear Marlene,
    It is easy to lift someone in prayer that is so kind and considerate of others. I am so hopeful that all will work out, in God's timing, and let us pray that is soon, for you and your health issues.
    It is awful when we don't have our balance but then so is vertigo and you were experiencing some things I had never heard of. We will have to talk later about that!!
    I have been watching how you are doing but didn't have the time to send a note your way and I am so sorry about that. Traveling is already exhausting for me, but 1 month down, 2 more to go; depending on how I am feeling.
    I am hoping to feel as good as what you are doing soon then we can both celebrate big time!!
    I can't wait to have that "perfect" body; but, then I think of what I would miss out here on earth and I don't want to leave my friends and family quite yet!! Am I correct?
    Our life is so short here on earth when you think of eternity with Him!! Amen!!
    Well, I can't top that so I will close for now, my friend.
    Peace, love and blessings as you recover,

    Precious friend, Marlene, it was with great joy that I read your posting. How wonderful the news that you are experiencing concrete evidences of our Abba’s healing hand on your body! Please allow Him time to complete the healing process before you jump into the demands of your daily life.

    I am rejoicing with your family & you, Marlene! Actually I am sitting here with tears of pure joy welling up as I think of our Abba’s goodness to you all through the process that led to the recent surgery & now in the healing process. He is so very good to us!

    May we never forget His love, mercy, grace, & blessing as they have touched our lives! All glory to our Abba Father!

    Thank you for keeping us updated. I hope you continue to heal at such a good rate and with time the cane will no longer be needed either. I continue to say prayers also.

    Praise God, Marlene!

    Our God truly is an awesome God, & he's soooo good! I'm so very happy that you're seeing results. I know what a super terrific blessing it was to not have that nasty ol' vertigo!

    But don't keep pushing yourself so hard, girl - you don't want to have any type of relapse! Yes, God will take care of you, but He expects us to care for His temple too (let's ignore the reason we're all here for now & concentrate on the one issue). That means NO MARATHONS - YET! lol

    Have a blessed SONday, & keep us posted.
