Health Update: Patient Goals
God bless you for all your many intercessions, especially during the last 10 days I’ve been hospitalized. I’m still battling pneumonia, but we are closer to an overall diagnosis. My chest pain and breathing problems seem to be due to my long-term quadriplegia. I am unable to breathe efficiently (exchanging CO2 for O2), and with that, exacerbated by sleep apnea, it’s no wonder I’ve been saying for the last six months or so, “Oh my goodness, I just can’t get a good breath!”
My condition will be treated medically. And by the way, the doctors believe radiation is not the cause for all this… It’s been building over time.
All this has made me astounded at how fearfully and wonderfully God has made us!!! My spirits are bright and optimistic, and I’m so thankful to Jesus for carrying me through all this :-). Just like He says in Isaiah 46:4 “I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”
Thank you for again praying! One more thing: Please note my patient goals for the day :-).
It has been Joni’s prayer that this new cancer challenge becomes a platform for showcasing how amazing God is. Stay up to date on Joni’s health and progress on the Joni and Friends blog.
