Someone Call a Doctor!

Well, actually, someone already did, several times.  January 2018, I went to St V hospital in Anderson to have my right hip replaced.  I had been trying for about two years to successfully have the surgery.  Around two years ago, it was scheduled for July  26, 2016.  On July 25, my father passed away.  I cancelled the surgery.  I tried again a few months later, but, due to stress from Dad’s death and my sister’s diagnosis with cancer, I became ill with gastro paresis.  This persisted until, actually, July of 2017, when my doctor and I finally figured it out (I will let him have some of the credit.  I did all the research and he agreed).  With the monthly session of V and D (sick at both ends) gone, I got my sugar back down to a strong 6.8 (below 8.0 for surgery) and we tried setting it up again.  In the midst of this I managed to badly burn my hand and had to deal with that.  On my last appointment with a GP doctor, for a final check, he reran an A1C and it came out to 8.3.  Surgery was postponed again.  This time, just for about a month.  I had to see a diabetic specialist and we discussed my diet and possible medical solutions.

Now, I am not a person who swallows pills very well.  I had several incidents with food and such when I was younger and it just doesn’t work for me.  So, one of the new medications wasn’t going to work. The other was almost $350 a month.  I worked with the company to get coupons for that medicine.  Finally, the specialist approved my blood readings and diet and we were on for surgery.  Then, the diabetic specialist decided I should go on insulin for a couple of weeks before the surgery and after until my sugar was back to normal.  The insulin was a long-acting and a one-for-each-meal type.  The long-acting was about $600 a a month and the short-acting was around $150.  I ended up buying 1/2 Rx for each and using it before, then after for about 1 week.

What I have noticed is that my sugar levels are higher now than when I was on insulin than when I was on the older medicines.  I will attribute some to pain, but I am just wondering…

So, my temp solution is to remain as it is until the pain stops, reschedule the return appointment until after I am allowed to drive, so I can go to Planet Fitness and exercise for a couple of weeks and see what that does.  Am I being ridiculous?

I ask you…

Namaste,

God and Manifestation are both Wonderful!!!

Of course, I know that God handles manifestation.  I simply believe He gives us rules to follow in order to take full advantage of our humanness.  Manifestation is a way in which God can bring into our lives those things we ask for and concentrate on.  That’s my story for tonight.

This is actually Friday early morning.  It’s about 1:45am.  I was heading to bed and decided to get the mail in case the library had put any books in my collection box and it decided to rain (as it has for weeks).  I pulled out the mail and was disappointed to find two extra doctor bills from my hip surgery in April.  The hospital has been going over my financial statements to see if I qualify for a reduction in the nearly $1200 bill.  I don’t mind paying it.  It has been a true Godsend to have the ability to walk and bend again.  My other hip will be scheduled for next April.

Anyway, the other two bills amounted to about $31.00.  I will pay them.  I just know those types of bills will continue coming for months…a bit here and there.  So, I decided to perk up and just be happy I could pay them…on time even!  Then, I got to the last bill – a letter, actually, from the hospital, St Vincent’s in Anderson.  The letter said (I tried not to read ahead and ruin anything) they were happy that because of my financial status and the generous donations from others and patients who could really afford to pay, they were able to FORGIVE MY ENTIRE BILL!  I almost cried.  I had hoped dearly for a 20% reduction.  This brought all my finances back into order.  I only had to pay the little bills and the surgeon who was 50% paid off now.

I just had to pass this on as I had manifested $100 dollars this month and already received that, so this was on top of it all.  I always leave myself open to more abundance.  Bless all the people who made it possible.

And, Mollie, here is another wonderful example of manifesting and letting it go to the universe.

Namaste,

Scott
