26th October: Doors open – Doors Close

 ‘Faith opens the door to God’s promises for you; and patience keeps it open until that promise is fulfilled’

Following my last post I have continued to struggle physically, however was able to organise & hold a successful work event called ‘Transition’ on the 14th Of October for students leaving College at the end of this year and preparing to enter into world what ever that involves.  The event included free budget advice, free legal advise,  how to make cheap & yummy meals & loads more- thanks to wonderful support of others & use of my wheelchair on the day!

Phew I did it!

In the midst of the last few weeks I had my application to tel aviv accepted, however a week later after discovering more information eg. The increased cost, being an outpatient for most of the time, having the potential date given to someone else (doors closing) I decided to pull out.

However later that day while meeting with my neurologist (with my dad ), she did her neurology  examination, which showed significant deterioration on my right side, she concluded that I HAD RECENTLY EXPERIENCED A RELAPSE!!!

So an URGENT MRI scan referal was sent to radiology. However due to the backlog they are experiencing the first appointment available wouldn’t be until the first week of December.

The MRI scan will be of my brain to confirm that I did have a relapse. If so, which we are expecting the results would show this & they would be sent to St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney – Potentially back to the original & best option!

This week I will be investigating having a MRI scan done privately to speed the process up, especially as we are aware that things will be closing down for the Christmas/New year period.

I have been  reminded of this following saying:

While I wait I have been reflecting on the following scripture: Psalm 62:5-8

‘My soul, wait silently for God alone,
For my expectation is from Him.
He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my defense;
I shall not be moved.
In God is my salvation and my glory;
The rock of my strength,
And my refuge, is in God.
Trust in Him at all times, you people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us’
