Florida's Foreverly Shores
So many wonderful prayers, thoughts and replies~
Thank you all DEARLY for your continued vigil of prayer for me~
On Thursday, July 10, my son and daughter will be taking me up to Shands Hospital in Gainesville, FL, a short 90 miles from our home here in DeLand~
I will see Maher A. Baz, MD
Department of Medicine, Division of Pulmonary Medicine and Critical Care Medicine~
Dr. Baz served his residency in Internal Medicine at Duke University Medical Center, and his Fellowship in Pulmonary/Critical Care, at Duke University~
He is considered one of the best in the country and I am looking forward to having him consult with us and review my medical history as it relates to what all has already been done by my wonderful team of doctors locally~
A fresh set of medical eyes ... and he makes the LUCKY 13th physician that I'll be seeing~
Thirteen is my lucky number, 'M', as in Marge, is the 13th letter of the alphabet~
I feel that I'm getting stronger each day, weight is up to a little over 90 pounds ... (had one rough day this past weekend that had me scrambling to put the weight back on~
Between the Wendy's Frostie's and the Haagan-Daz Strawberry ice cream, and lots of high protein meals ... I'm really feeling so much better~
Hey ... how's this for a gal that less than a month ago was critically ill, following her third surgical procedure, in Isolation ICU ????
Today I walked 1.5 miles ... yes I did !!!
I've been slowly building up my endurance ... and today I pushed it to meet my goal !!!
****AND TODAY, I added another 1.2 miles to my walking trips***
Yahooie for me !!
I feel that all of the petals of prayer sent forth from friends have blossomed and I'm convinced that I'm on my way back to the pathway that The-Lord-of-my-Knowing would have me walk~
God bless each and every one of you ... your friendship and earnest prayers have kept me going~
Thank you ... thank you~
I will update after the consultation with Dr. Baz and until then ... keep the light on ... cause I'm coming HOME to PiP~
