It’s like a new day

Today I accidentally sneezed.  When I did this a few days ago, I was in agony. Out of fear, I would try to stop myself from sneezing. It was different this time. The sneeze seemed to push the back of my throat into place. Although my throat still feels a little raw, I was able to speak more clearly.

It had been a few days since I ventured outside of the house. The last time was to have breakfast with my son and husband, but the trip to the restaurant left me dizzy and nauseated.

I thought that since my throat was a little better today, I might be well enough to go for a drive so I went with my son to his eye appointment. He had his appointment, we picked out some glasses for him, had an early dinner, then I went to the movies with my husband afterwards.

I feel like I had been through a long bad storm but now the clouds are starting to clear. I think about the words in 1 Peter 5:10, “…after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you…” (NLT).

For a while I thought my pain would never end, but it did. I thought I wouldn’t be able to eat, but I have. I didn’t lose 15 pounds like others have done following the operation, but I had more than liquids to eat.

It has been ten days since I’ve had my tonsillectomy and I am down to taking only one pill a day of the medication. I know now that God had helped me through it all. Thank you, God!
