Post edited to say: Dad’s appointment has been postponed as the weather is too bad for him to get out as when it’s this cold it goes straight to his lungs and makes his breathing even more difficult. I’ve also left a comment in the combox of this post.
May i please beg your prayers ?
Both Dad and i have some health concerns which we will both be seeing someone about this week, Dad has had a recurring chest infection that hasn’t responded to the 3 courses of both very strong antibiotics and steroids he has been prescribed for about the last 6 -8 weeks now. Dad had to have a chest x-ray etc, a couple of weeks ago and has recieved a letter asking him to see his G.P on Thursday, about the results. Dad has had lung problems for many years now, he has both C.O.P.D and asthma… he has only 40% of his lungs working on a good day, so you can imagine how hard it hits him to get a chest infection, especially one like this. Of course, we are praying for a good outcome from the xray and spit test, but we are all understandably concerned for his health. Please, dear friends, pray for him.
For myself… due to unforseen developments in the NHS appointment schedule, i now have an appointment to see the neurologist on Tuesday. I am glad to have an earlier than expected appointment, but anxious too as the last appointment was so distressing and bought about no relief of my symptoms nor pain. I’m terrified that the appointment will go badly again and i am afraid too, that i will be forgetful…that i will not make myself very well understood and that i will leave important things out that need to be mentioned.
Pray please that both Dad and I might continue to place our care into God’s hands and that His will be done.
Know, my friends, that I remember you all in my prayers and pray regularly for your intentions.
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayers.
