Random Act of Kindness

The Lord has truly blessed me with a very kind, caring husband. (You're going to wonder where I'm going with this, but just bear with me.)

On Tuesday of this week I had another injection in my right eye for my macular degeneration. I've been getting injections of Avastin on a monthly basis for the last several months. I initially had significant improvement, but the last few injections have not given progressive improvement. So Tuesday he changed to Lucentis, which is the other drug that can be used.

I usually experience some discomfort and scratchiness for a day or two after the injection. And I put antibiotic drops in my eye 3 times a day for 3 days. However, since Wedneday, my eye has continued to feel very irritated. ( Also, I started rubbing my eye, which didn't help matters).

Friday at work I began to be worried about it. Some of the nurses said it was red and swollen. Then this morning, Saturday, I was really depressed; I was thinking I may need to make an appointment and try to get off work to go have Dr. Walker check it. So, the bottom line is, I was kind of having a pity party this morning.

I was sitting in my recliner about mid-morning working on some things on my computer, when Lynn came in and sat a vase of really pretty flowers on my end table. He knew I was feeling bad and wanted to cheer me up. I so much appreciate his love and concern and he is very good about doing random acts of kindness at various times when I seem to need them most.

I am back on track now, and just trusting the Lord to heal this eye, if that is His will. And if not, I
will continue to trust Him to allow me to have good enough vision to continue working, at least until September.

Psalm 18: 30 As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him.

Psalm 91:1-2 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.
