Last night Carol and I were suppose to have dinner with Carol's kin but I re-injured myself and I had to have Carol take me to ER at the hospital. I was in such intense pain that I had to go to see a doctor to make sure nothing serious was wrong with me. Remember a week ago I fell over a chair and bruised a rib on my left lower back. Last night I was reaching down for a CD and immediately felt a pain that almost knocked me out. I was in terrible pain and I immediately knew this was it, that I better go to the hospital. So Carol canceled our dinner engagement and we drove to ER hospital. To make a long sad painful story nothing is broken but I have a bruised rib that is absolutely killing me with PAIN! I can't lay down but only sit in a position of partly sitting up. I tried to sleep last night in our recliner chair in our living room. Every time I get up to walk I am excruciating pain. There is nothing the doctor could prescribe for my pain but Ibuprofen to be taken every six hours/make sure you take these pills on a full stomach/after eating.
So last night when we got home from the ER hospital I sat in pain. Carol went to bed early since she had been up since 3 o'clock AM. I sat in pain and read late into the night from a book titled, 'Allen Ginsberg Iron Curtain Journals January-May 1965' Edited By Michael Schumacher. I also read yesterday from the novel, 'Paris In The Present Tense' by Mark Helprin. I took with us to the hospital the novel 'Paris In The Present Tense' as we waiting to be seen in Holland Hospital ER. We were in ER for three hours/Carol saw several people she works with. Carol works in ER and on other floors in the hospital. Carol is a Rapid Response Nurse so goes wherever she is needed.
So this is a report on the state of my health. I am constantly praying for healing. If I had belonged to a visible church I would have called for our church Elders to come to our house and lay hands on me and pray for God The Healer to heal my bruised left side. All I can do is go in prayer to The Chief Elder the Lord Jesus Christ The Great Physician and plead for healing.
I will close. Keep the Faith.
