Great News....

Dear Family and Friends:
No hospital admittance today. YIPPPEEEEEEE!!!

I went and saw my weight loss Dr., he looked at the xrays from yest. Ruled out pneumonia. Ordered a CT scan, which I did today at Baylor Downtown. My weight loss Dr. wants me to see my lung specialist, that I had when I was in the hospital previously. Unfortunately (for me), he's on vacation until Mon.

So, until then..... it's me and Vicodin for the pain. I'm just thankful that I'm not spending tonight in the hospital. My Dr. said he does not think this fluid on/around the lung with require admittance to the hospital, but rather "tapping the lung" which evidently involves numbing the area and pulling the fluid out with a needle. I'll take that over surgery ANY DAY.

God sent me several angels today. One in the form of a security officer who drove me to my car and gave me a free parking voucher, after they scheduled my procedure at the wrong building. It was 101F today and walking from building to building w/fluid on your lung wasn't an option.

Then, upon arrival at my weight loss Dr's. office I was blessed with Angel Laverne who prayed with me for today's situation. She is a strong believer and was such an encouragement to me.

Thanks for everyone who has prayed for me and who called or texted me. I love you all. For now, we'll just hang tight and leave it up to GOD.

Praise the Lord Heather! Glory! I agree with what Amber commented yesterday! You have been healed by the stripes of Jesus. Proclaim it! Don't even entertain any fear or thoughts that don't line up with the Word of God. His Word is His will for you! All of His promises are yes and Amen!

Love ya,
Michele
