This past week has been very interesting to say the least. Mrs. G is recovering from a complete hip replacement and having a difficult time. We have been replacing bandages regularly and it seemed as if the leaking would not stop from the surgery. The local nurse suggested we go back to see our surgeon which we did. He took a couple of staples out and it gushed from a pocket of fluid. We came home and it seemed to bring a little relief, but it started all over again.
We went back to the doctor on Monday and he is putting her in the hospital this morning to do surgery on her hip. He is going to clean out the infection and keep her for a few days. She is a little discouraged and yet we are hopeful this will take care of the infection. She has a dormant staphylococcus and always had a fear of it returning. We do not think this is the case, but why pray when you can worry! Ha!
I have made dozens of trips to the pharmacy to purchase bandages and gauze. One morning as I was entering Walgreens a man was standing outside and I greeted him and he told me his name was Richard. When I was leaving he was still there. I asked if he was OK and he said he had a prescription he needed filled, but had no money. He was waiting for a sister to come, but she never showed up. I took him inside and purchased his prescription for him and while we were waiting I had the privilege of leading him to Christ. He wept and thanked me. GOTTA LOVE SOUL WINNING!
