Join us as we continue reading with Holly, In Faithfulness, He Afflicted Me, by Lynnette Kraft.
I was glad to see that God gave Lynnette a longer pregnancy. Praying that it would help the child. I was also glad that God had gave her a easy delivery. With any child I know that the easy delivery the better for everyone but especially one that is already having complications. I can relate so much to the idea of eating healthy during pregnancy. This past pregnancy I was 44 & my doctor of course did the great sugar test which I failed both times. So she put me on a diet & a daily pill. I had to check my sugar all the time. I remember being so upset but at the same time I knew it was only to help the child. After 2 weeks of following the diet & the pill, I was getting the shakes so bad & she took me off the pill. I finished the rest of my pregnancy w/ only following the diet. I had lost 2 children before so I wanted to do everything I could to keep this one healthy.
Have you incorporated any healthier living into your family ?
Yes , I'm a big health nut as my hubby would say. I don't buy alot of junk food. My kids drink Kool-Aid but sugar free. I buy Sun chips & Baked Chips. They eat alot of crackers & Granola Bars & etc..... Yes my kids eat candy but not lots. We eat alot of Turkey Breast & my kids love salad well my older 2. Jennifer is 5 & still picky. I fix healthy foods to now since I'm home all the time I make alot better meals not all that fast stuff. I still like fast stuff but not like I used to. That's why when I was put on the diet from the Dr it didn't change things much for me. But as far as drinking green juice I don't think I could do that.
The Dr that was so rude to Lynnette brought back alot of unpleasant memories for me. I do not understand how someone so rude could work in a hospital where your job is to care for people.
Have you encountered any Doctors like this ?
As much as I dislike saying this but yes I have. When I went to the E.R. not knowing I was pregnant with my son. The Dr on call that nite in O.B. was so rude to me. Of course I got him up at midnight but that's what on call is. After I delievered my son & so much I was trying to soak in not knowing myself I was pregnant & had just gave birth. He came back & gave me the third degree for as he called it putting on a show & risking a child's life. As soon as he left the room I cried , I just wanted to runaway & take my son & not look back. The nurse that held my hand while I delivered stayed with me & told me he is like that & just doesn't understand. It wasn't right, if I had known things would have been done so different for one thing I would have seen a Dr. I'm not like that. He made me feel terrible & I couldn't wait to get out of the hospital. I never wanted to see him again.
