About My Doctor Visit


Hello my friends, thanks for all of your prayers. I can really feel them, they keep me going. I love and appreciate all of you. It was not a good visit, much dissappointment. The doctor told me that my diabetes is eventually going to kill me, that my kidneys are going to get worse, and my heart, if my blood sugars do not get under control. They are running in the 400's again, he said they need to at least get in the 100's. The damage that it is doing to not only my eyes, but my entire body is aweful. I told him how bad the pain in my eyes is, after checking them, he said it was due to severe dryness, and very high pressure in both eyes. He said, I need to get that cataract out of my left eye, and have the right eye lasered. The scar tissue in my right eye is really bad, and getting worse. The problem is that with such high pressure in both eyes, due to my high blood sugars, he cannot due any procedures on me right now. It would be extremely too dangerous. So, I have to wait until June 5, then go back to see him, if my blood sugars are better, then he will be able to do some procedures on me. Eddie is very upset, he hates to see me suffer with this pain. He wants me to be helped now, not later. I understand how he feels, but it is all in Gods time, not our time. I just have to rest in my Fathers arms, as He teaches me more patience. Please continue to pray.

You are in my continuing prayers. I pray that you will be able to be strong, do what the doctors suggest and that the Holy Spirit will bring your blood sugars under control. I pray God will give you the patience you need to wait and you will have his peace.

Sweet Denise--I am so sorry that your visit with dr. was not good. I am praying for you daily. God is stretching the faith of His children---I see that clearly today as I've not seen before. He is faithful to not put more on us than we can bear though. I pray for strength of your body and healing in every ailing part of your body. You have so much going on, but don't be discouraged---God is able to do that and more ----the Bible says "exceedingly abundantly more than we can ask or imagine!" I can imagine a lot! So He can do more than that!
I will continue in prayer for you!

I know ALL things are possible with God. I am praying and asking God to lower your blood sugar level to 100 and to keep it there, and I am asking God to protect every organ and to heal your eyes. Mighty God just as the woman with the issue of blood touched the hem of your garment we are reaching out and touching you and asking for a miracle! We praise you and thank you that you have heard our prayers! In Jesus Name, Amen!

I know it must be hard on Eddie, but hopefully Eddie will lay his pain in GOD's hands too. We are all still praying for you and will never cease praying for you. You are a strong and GODLY Woman and I know GOD will take care of you. He has great things in store for you. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

I Love You and Hugs to you,
