Yesterday was Mom's monthly visit to the transplant doctors. Overall the visit was good. However, she is now doing an at home heart monitor. She has been having some palpitations. No big deal....repeat...no big deal. I would be banned from ever updating you on her, if she ever thought I was making her out to be sick for crying out loud:) lol! You who know my Mom will understand. So, help me out here and don't make a fuss about the palp's and heart monitor. K. She really appreciates your prayers, as do I, we just have to keep up a certain persona that involves making out like she really has all healthy organs. Whatever works..right? And it has now for 2 years! I'm really not making light of the situation nor making fun, it's just how we cope.
But...what I heard from her voice yesterday was that of a woman who is sick and tired of being sick and tired. Again....mums the word. She confirmed that she would not give up. She just had to ask some questions, to which Dr. P replied, "you will get a heart if it's meant to be, if not, you won't. We have people like you (antibody issue) that have been on the waiting list as high as two years and finally got one."
Don't you just love doctor talk. They are honest and to the point. Sometimes we just need reassuring, or reminded of how things are. So, one month with the heart monitor and they have ordered another echo for next month. Both are routine. No alarming news.
To which we are so very thankful to God! He is the giver of life. He has been her sustainer for these last couple of years and will be from now on. That is comforting to me and I know to her too. Our flesh is weak. He knows this. That's where, when it seems we can't take another step, He scoops us up and tucks us under His wings!
Wanna leave Mom an encouraging word....please leave a comment...I'll pass them on to her. Thanks for all your love and prayers!
To God be the glory,
