It's been a difficult day because the pain is pretty severe. I called the helpline this evening, and though there isn't a solution to the problem, the doctor said that because it's the fourth treatment, the pain is building up. Therefore, I'm glad it's my last treatment. The Tylenol 3 isn't really taking the pain away because my body is building an intolerance to the pain-killers and the pain is really a nerve pain, not a pain that responds well to pain-killers. All in all, I just have to keep remembering this is the last of the pain. Please pray that I can sleep in peace and have patience to bear the pain. I know there is an end to this - hopefully sooner than later. Meanwhile, I keep taking the pain medication so I'm not up to doing very much at all. I'll just keep on enjoying that lounge chair on the deck.
My neighbour read Psalm 18 to me this evening. "As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect." (Psalm 18:30-32)
Strengthened in Him,
