Health Update

One or two folk have been asking how I’m doing physically as I reach the middle of my walk4andy.

Well, I’m pleased to report that all is well.  My feet in particular are completely blister-free thanks to great boots and a lot of prayer!

On Day Three my legs were very stiff and I worried that I wouldn’t be able to manage the walk but that morning I received a text from a friend praying for healing and after about half an hour the stiffness wore off and I’ve been fine since.

The diabetes is not such a good story.  It’s been a bit like the terrain here in the middle part of the Wall – very up and down!  Although my Freestyle Libre scanner means I can check blood sugar levels very easily, it means I tend to respond too quickly I think and so it starts to ping pong.  Interestingly the problems have been worse after the day’s walking rather than during.

But if you are the praying kind, I would very much value prayer for better control over the last few days as the massive fluctuations can be exhausting.

The friend who texted sent me this verse from Habakkuk:

‘God, the Lord, is my strength, he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, and makes me tread upon the heights.’

I’m not quite a gazelle leaping gracefully along the Wall, but I do know that I am finding healing here as I walk and not just physically.  Thank you again for all your prayers and support.
