Health Update

Had an appointment with the Orthopedic surgeon today. He feels that the numbness in my feet is from nerve deteriation. Usually people with this problem have diabetes. He is glad I will be seeing a neurologist next Wed. Will have to schedule an appointment to have a diabetes test ran again.
Will be having an MRI ran on my right knee as am having problems with it now. My left knee, which is the one that had been operated on before is acting up as well. Will be having cartalige injections in both knees once he sees if I need surgery on the right knee or not. This is all from Rhuematoid arthritis tearing up the miniscus in there.
Still holding onto faith. I know only God can take all this away. It's scary in a sense to think about the possibility of losing my feet. This has been known to happen if I have diabetes and the nerves are dead. The numbness is getting worse. Usually when this happens, most have their lower limbs to thier knees amputated. :{
At least now I have an idea of why all the pain and some numbness off and on through out my body. I have no reflexes in my knees and very little in the right ankle. The left ankle has none. I keep reminding myself that there are others in much worse condition. I have grandchildren to enjoy and do things with. Am not going to let this get the best of me.
Little sis was down Monday and spent the night and talked about how she has learned to live with the pain the best she can and keep going, as often times, we don't have a choice. I so agree. There are times when we can't keep going and have to rest.
So I send out a prayer for all those hurting, in the same conditions, worse, or perhaps not as bad.

Father God, You are so precious to us. You are the Almighty. Without you life is not good. We love you Father. We long for the day when we come home to You. Thank you Father for all the goodness You place in our lives. Thank You for the lessons You continue to teach us. Thank You for protecting us from evil. Father, You are the awesome Alpha and the Omega.
Father God, there are many out there going through their trials and tribulations through some type of pain in various stages. Those facing cancer treatments. Those whose bodies are riddled with arthritis, lupus, MD, MS etc. Those who are losing or have lost limbs. Those who are war torn. Of course You know all who are suffering, all who need Your healing hands. Daddy, I pray you lay Your healing hands upon each one and let them know Your mightiness. Let them feel Your loving presence. For those who have not come to You yet, let them know and feel that You are there and are the only One that can heal them. Lead them to you.
Father, we all need you in order to continue to do as You wish for us to do. We want to be good, obedient servants of You. We know You send us trials and tribulations for a reason, often times for testemonials to help others going through the same things. Thank You for that gift! How I love you so Father. Your presence is strong and so wanted. Thank you Father God. Thank You seems so small of words for all the greatness You provide. A thousands praises go up to You! In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.

While going through all this lately, I've come across some good health information. Therefore will be sharing much of it with you all or giving you the information of where to obtain it all. I pray this finds you all healthy and doing well. May the presence of the Lord fill your hearts and souls. Blessings prayed for each and everyone of you. God Bless.

By the way, I apologize for not having been on much and visiting at all. I don't know what is going on, but I've been so tired and have a very hard time staying away. :{ Hoping this all passes real soon.

Psalm 91 NLT

1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
3 For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.

9 If you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”

Don't worry, rest well and take care of you...allow Him to take care of you and be okay with it. He is faithful, Amen?!

Love to you, sweet one!! Big love.

I'll be lifting you up through the days.

Thank you RCUBEs! You are so sweet. Love and Blessings to you.

Tami, you are so remarkable and so caring. I love you my dear friend and sister. Thank you for your kind uplifting words. It's knowing that others are out there in worse situations that makes it easy to pray for others. I love people, our brothers and sisters and care. When we hurt, we are reminded of others and the prayers just come natural. Much love to you and many, many blessings. Thanks for the hugs. ;)

Thank you Denise, Love you too.

Thank you Veronica. Loving those hugs. ;) Love and blessings to you.

Thank you Laura! So loving all the hugs.

Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and love and especially those hugs. :)
May the Lord shower you all with His many blessings and His love. Much love to you all!

I'm thinking it's no surprise that you're tired, given all you've been through. You have such a beautiful spirit to be praying for others, even amidst your own pain. May the Lord touch you and heal you, in Jesus' name.

P.S. In case you haven't already heard, take the April Rose button off your sidebar. Unbelievable as it sounds, that whole blog turned out to be one big hoax.

Hi! I'm Grace said...

You are a good example to us, Tammy. You made the name of God more glorious by the way you display your faith.
Your faith has made you whole.

Meggie said...

So sorry to hear of the condition of your lower limbs. Hoping your further tests show good results. Perhaps the neurologist will have some suggestions. Good luck! I hope you can feel the prayers.

Lori Lynn said...

Dear Tammy - thank you for the nice comments left on my Blog Anniversary. Thoughts and prayers are with you for a healthy outcome.

Toia said...

I come in agreement with your prayers. And you don't have anything to apologize for. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Omah's Helping Hands said...

Great-Granny, thank you so much.
I removed the button too, thank you for letting me know. That is so sad.

Thanks Grace. All the Glory belongs to God. :)

Thank you Meggie. Yes, I do feel the prayers and am believing in good results.

Thank you Lori Lynn. You have an awesome blog!

Thank you Toia! I really appreciate it.

Thank you all for the great understanding. Just a couple more days and I'll see the neurologist. Hoping for good news, no believing in good news. Love to you all!
