I thank + praise You again for providing yet another miracle in my life. I'll never be able to understand the depth of Your love, but I pray You will help me to value it deeply enough.
TY that the most recent labs showed an overall improvement. I am beyond grateful. The calcium was a little elevated but that was from taking too much antacid d/t the reflux that plagues me. I will have to stick to NaHCo3 as opposed to TUMS.
The surgery was brutal + the recovery will be difficult, but surprisingly, the first transplant was much harder on me. I expected this one to be worse since I'm nearly 10 years older. TY for that, as well.
I cont. to pray that all the extra fluid/blood in my abdomen will be reabsorbed w/o difficulty + the hematoma as well. TY that this has improved already I am sure, based on the reduction in distention.
I pray that this kidney will last the rest of my life + perform well. Help me to do all I can on my end to take the best possible care of it + of myself.
I TY for the wonderful help I have had as I recover. I want to cont. to serve You + pray that I will be as receptive to Your Spirit's promptings as my friend Dee is. I am sure You have many crowns waiting for her.
Bless B. Help her to lose 60 lbs. + control her diabetes better. Keep her mentally stable + independent. Protect us both from the familial tendency to develop dementia later in life. TY that it tends to occur after age 80, although since we both have chronic diseases, the risk may be greater at an earlier age.
In Your precious name, amen.
