Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

I won't share details (you're welcome) but I've been trying to vomit for eons.  I think my stomach muscles are too weak.  I also did too much today; in fact I've really been in bed since 5.  Tomorrow my niece will be here and I'll have to stay away, which has the one good effect of keeping me in bed resting.  I'll call the dr's office of course.  I  took Zofran, which Dr. Body gives me so that I don't get dehydrated.  Hopefully it will stop the nausea.  Gagging with a belly full of stitches is not recommended in case you were wondering.

4 more weeks.....

Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. Don't be afraid. You're healing even though you can't see it and probably don't feel it. BUT to have this on top of it is really nasty. I'm so sorry to hear this and pray you'll soon be completely well. Think how much better you're doing than the last surgery!

Monday I learned that my eye only has a little white spot remaining in the concerning area where the retina tore, bled and caused tons of floaters. The floaters have almost completely resolved. I still have a little flash of "lightning" on one side so something's causing a bit of pressure but it's looking good. I still should avoid jarring and jostling but I can do all other things as usual. I don't have to go for my fifth check for 5-6 weeks.

The doctor said I "dodged a bullet" but I said many people have been praying for me. He replied "well, it worked."

Believing for your healing, too.

We've had about two months without measureable rainfall in Washington state, longer on the east side of the Cascade mountains. My son just moved to the Chelan/Wenatchee area over there which is still suffering from a 52,000 acre fire only 30% contained. Even his girlfriend's 5 year old daughter is wearing a mask. People are now supposed to stay inside. I heard on the news that schools were closed. AWFUL! Hope my son is doing o.k. trying to establish his new gym but I've only heard a few short texts from his girlfriend.

This is 365 Promises. This scripture has been so important to me since I got the worst MS symptoms (optic) when my son was newborn. (BTW, this recent eye problem really brought back powerful unwanted feelings, scared, sad...)

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 WEB

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort; who comforts us in all our affliction, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, through the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

Promise #268: I will always be close when you need My comfort.

We all need comfort. As children, when we scraped our knee playing in the backyard, we needed the comfort of a mother or a father to simply hold us and reassure us that everything was going to be okay. When we experience extreme disappointment or the loss of a loved one, words fail... What we need is comfort.

In today's Bible passage from 2 Corinthians, the Apostle Paul tells us that God is the Father of mercies (compassion) and the God of ALL comfort. Our God and Father is the source of ALL comfort and He wants us to be comfortable coming to Him to receive comfort whenever we need it.

Since we were created to receive comfort, we will seek it out somewhere. If we don't receive it from God, we will receive it from other things... Food, material things, false comforts, etc. God wants each and every one of us to run into His arms every time we need to be comforted! As we receive the comfort from His loving arms, we will then be able to be an expression of that same comfort to other people when they need a comforting shoulder to cry on.

I pray you'll feel God's comfort and continue your ministry of compassion to others.

Love, Michal
