A Small Fear
I had the first set of three sets of shots last Friday. Â I had the first Hep A and B and Yellow Fever. The Yellow Fever caused my legs to ache something awful for about 3 days. Â I have to get the second Hep A and B and Thyphoid this week. Â Then in two weeks I will get the third Hep A and B and Meningococcal Meningitis. Â My prayer request is that these subsequent shots won’t make me sick.
I thought Meningitis was like the Chickenpox, if you have had it you are more immune to it. Â Well this is not true, in some cases you are more susceptible to getting Meningitis again if you have already had it. Â I had Meningitis in college and I’d really like to NOT get it again. I realize this shot is to protect from that, but please pray with me for God’s protection over this. Â It’s not a huge fear but it’s been in the back of my mind since I found this out on Friday.
And I’m still on the fundraising trail. Â It seems like cost keep popping up that I wasn’t expecting when I said I would go – like the cost of prescriptions that I must take with me.
Then again, if I’m truly honest about this, had I known every cost involved before I said yes to God, I might have said no. Â You know, come to think about it, He already knew this about me and that’s why I’m just now finding out some of the costs. Â So we are back to God’s whisper “Are you going to believe me or not?”
Sometimes I have to laugh (to keep from getting frustrated) at the number of times I tell my 3 year old to do something before he gets it. Â God must be having a good chuckle right now at my expense.
I do appreciate your prayers and your willingness to take this journey with me. Â Much love!
