A Prayer Answered

If I could walk, you would see me walking with a noticeable spring to my steps, like a child who has just gotten a new toy. It is not because I slept 14 hours straight from 8.30pm last night. I took some medicine to clear the phlegm in my throat and felt groggy and went to bed. I am now well rested which is a good thing. The bad is that I did not perform the scheduled intermittent catheterisations as I should. Hopefully last night was an exception.

In between my wooziness after the second dose of the medicine, I received an SMS from Wuan. It was some good news that we had been longing for for a while now. I could not rejoice with her over the phone for long last night. The medicine really knocked me out. When I woke up this morning, the extent of last night?s conversation struck me. The moment I opened my eyes, there was so much joy flowing from me that it actually drowned out all the sorrows of the past week. Congrats Wuan! You deserved it. Praise God for He had answered our prayers.
