Why did Paul leave Trophimus, a 7-year companion, sick and not heal him?

If the apostle Paul still had the power to heal why would he leave a friend and companion sick?

In Philippians 2:27 Epaphroditus was sick to the point of death?

Timothy was encouraged to use a little wine for his stomach and frequent ailments. (1Timothy 5:23)?

2 Timothy 4:20

ESV - 20 Erastus remained at Corinth, and I left Trophimus, who was ill, at Miletus.

we are to pray for the sick that they may be healed. sometimes that may be a spiritual healing , but they will be healed. the most complete healing is when we are taken home. jesus also was moved with compassion many times.the main purpose is to trust him and have faith he will do what is best for us.
