You made my day!
I was sick over the
weekend, but the one good thing that came out of it was reading only a
few Dove letters on Saturday, leaving some for Sunday!
kind of person who literally doesn't know when to 'shut up'. I don't
know how many times I've been rambling on the phone only to have it
ring in my ear cuz my sis or kid was calling me back from a dropped
call! I'm always like, 'how long did I talk without you there!?' heh.
I am jotting this note and really have to get some work done, I'll take
the opportunity to ask for prayer for my health. I'm the kind of person
who will squeal like a stuck pig over a hang nail, but whenever it's
something really big, I play ostrich. :(
I've had my (more than)
fair share of health problems. I know when it's time to call the doc
for my kidney stones. I know when I have to get to my surgeon for my
neck. But when it comes to *whispers* (sorry brothers)....as my
daughter goofily says, "Lady Bidness"....If I'm not in pain...meh. The
problem is, I'm not stupid. I've lost family to cancer, my younger
cousin, whom I BABYSAT, died in her early 30s from ovarian cancer (the
only reason she had any time with her 2 young daughters is because is
spread immediately to her lung and she thought she was getting
Anyway. I've had to get my kidney stones 'blasted'
(please avoid this at all costs!), and I know the signs that things are
getting bad in there...well, those signs are back, plus the 'lady
bidness' on top of things. *ugh* Talk about avoidance and wishing I had
my own private sandbox to stick my head in!!
To illustrate just
how bad things have gotten, I called my GYN (he delivered all 3 of my
kids), and he's got a 6 mo. waiting list...I was put on hold after
explaining exactly what was going on. After a minute, one of his staff
who's husband worked with my husband when they both started at the
Sheriff's Dept 30 years ago, came on and asked again, with more
detailed questions what was happening. I'm not sure if I passed or
flunked this quiz....but, she said he'd see me tomorrow!! *eep*
the other doc, and set up that appt too. It doesn't worry me as
much...although I remember the pain of passing all that 'blasted stone'
(and yes, I'm using blasted in the literal and in my grandpa's form of
cussing sense there!) for almost 2 months afterward. *pass the smelling
Okay...I know this was TMI. But, as family, you gotta take all the nuts on your branches of the tree, so, there it is.
keep me prayer. I'm figuring it's what the washed out, gray haired,
soon to be 53 yr. old woman in my mirror figures it is. AGE. But just
in case. Ya know? I seriously want to do some flyin'!! I feel, being
born when I was, coming to Christ as I did, all the markers and time
checks tell us it is SOON, I do NOT want to miss out because I wasn't
paying attention to my health! :/
Yes, I know I'll see my Lord one way or another, I am a Child of God, I'm just one of the spoiled ones! :)
