After Dr. Morris told us on Monday that he felt we were going to loose the new implanted graft and it would have to be removed. . That night, Harriet had fever at bedtime so we gave her some Tylenol and she finally got to sleep. I checked on her about 1 AM and her fever seemed to be going down. At 4 AM she was sleeping soundly and her fever was gone. At 6 AM she said “I believe my arm is healing! It felt like the Lord just sent some angels down here and they worked on my arm all night!” Sure enough, when we changed the bandage there was not nearly as much redness and the swelling was going down.
Now, I don’t know what’s going unseen, but I’ve been convinced while praying about it this morning that our Lord stepped back last week to give the antibiotics a chance to do the healing -which they did not. Now He is going to do it so we will know that HE is the Great Physician and we’ll have more to brag on HIM about! Someone wrote that “Harriet may be under the doctor’s care but she is in the GREAT PHYSICIAN’s hands”! And we say a confident AMEN to that.
Wednesday, Dr. Morris looked at her arm and said “I think we’ll probably be able to save this thing after all! Let’s add this new antibiotic and give it another week.”
What can we say except “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2Cointhians 4:18
