Tuesday, I had a follow up heart consult. The plan is to measure the aorta again and see if it has grown any. If it stays the same, we’ll just keep monitoring it for change. Another part of the news is the bigger section of my aorta is the bottom. The way I understood him was the top part can fail easier. A lot better outlook than initially given in April.
I received my final vaccine and accompanying shots this morning. Someone asked if I could tell any difference. I can’t, but that doesn’t mean it is or is not working, as since there isn’t any active disease for it to affect. It’s a plan and action now in case the disease returns. The research into how it works and what they learn from it is beyond me. The hope is that it will help others in the future. My last biopsy results are back, just haven’t been reviewed yet- maybe by next week.
Our bodies are tough and yet fragile at the same time. They can rebound from really bad injuries or health complications. Yet, a small thorn into a finger can bring blood flow. Both a broken bone and a paper cut can bring you to your knees. We are designed to rebound, to bounce back and keep going.
God designed the body to fight back. It actually begins fighting back before we know anything about it. Think about that, we don’t have to tell it to fight or try and decide whether we should or not. Keeping it fit so it can fight well is a good idea. Keeping ourselves spirituality fit and prepared to fight is also a great idea.
Just as we don’t intentionally create cuts in our skin to allow germs into our bodies, don’t intentionally open yourself to sin. Eat healthy to keep your body healthy, feed yourself a good spiritual diet also, to stay spirituality healthy. It takes time to heal physically and sometimes it takes time to work through forgiveness and allow grace to let you live again.
