I was amazed to get home and find that I had a message from my VA neurologisgt. She said that I will have a follow up with a Dr. in Iowa City coming up. She said that the Sroke specialists are in Iowa City and she would just feel better if she knows that they have done everything the can for me.
I called her back and spoke to her receptionist. I had a real good chat with the receptionist. She said that she has never met me, but cannot wait to meet me. She said that my story has affected many lives of people in Des Moines VA. When you think about my situation, it does seem that God divinely reached down and protected me. For instance, if the church still had the old house, I would probably would not have gone home when I did. The old house had a main floor and everything else (indluding the only bathroom) was on the 2nd floor. The house we have now, everything is on the main floor, which allowed me (I think) to go home early. Also, Dr. Benjamin was not SUPPOSED to be in my room when she was. She just HAPPENED to be outside my door. When she saw what kind of shape I was in, she ordered another CT Scan at the VA. Not only that, but Dr. Piper, who did my surgery, usually does not like to take VA patients. But, that day he was took me. Why? Other than God was looking down on me, I don't know. My recovery was expected by everyone to be at least 6 months. I was back at work in 4 weeks! Truly God hass been good to me. Now, He may choose to be silent in your case. That does not diminish what He can do, but in my case (as I have often said to my wife) God still would have been good regardless of what happened to me, but boy am I glad that thing worked out for me.
