I was feeling frustrated.
My vision is not as good as it should be because of cataracts and I am on the waiting list for cataract surgery at the Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton, Somerset. The wait has dragged on and on making life a little difficult at times as I depend on my vision for almost everything that I do from running Christian House Sitters through driving, preaching and even on to handling the finances as church treasurer.
Eventually I was contacted and told the operation would take place on the 12th of May. I was delighted but then got a call to say “sorry it has to be postponed” Grrrr
Then another call saying it was re booked for the 23rd of May. Phew relief.
A few days before the due date another phone call “sorry we have to cancel the appointment due to unforeseen circumstances but we will re book you asap”
The frustration began.
Every morning I watched for the postman and waited for a phone call.
So far nothing.
Every day I moaned at God “Why did you let then cancel my appointment you know I need it?”
Today I read the local newspaper and saw the following article.
Cataract patients suffer complications after private firm’s operations at Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton
9:00am Thursday 29th May 2014
A PRIVATE firm hired to perform routine eye surgery at Taunton’s Musgrove Park Hospital had its contract terminated after dozens of patients suffered mystery complications. More than half the 62 patients who had cataracts removed earlier this month experienced blurred vision and swollen corneas – normally one in 400 have such side effects, according to Musgrove.
Patients, who were treated under local anaesthetic in a mobile unit beside the day surgery unit, have been recalled and given treatment to ease the problem, but some may need further surgery in the future……..
His timing is perfect.
His delays are for our good.
I am reminded that I need to trust Him and stop my complaining.
God bless you,
