What an interesting couple days.
My mom has gotten better.
Like, miraculously better.
The catheder placed in her chest that she has been using for dialysis since April caused an infection in her body. The infection in turn was slowly killing her.
The doctors removed the catheder and cleaned up her new fissula so that she can get her dialysis in her arm.
I quoted Colossians 3:17 today in my facebook update – “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
I also brought up the fact that although I give glory to God for healing her, I ask for forgiveness for my unbelief.
I’m so glad for Jesus. I know I can’t do this on my own.
The Marilyn Monroe quote sums up my mother from my perspective. She’s a good woman, and is seriously getting better as she ages. It was (and still is) just not easy to deal with her at her worst.
Maybe there’s another meme in there – comparing my mother to an aging wine.
