Where To Start?
Wow, I haven't posted for two weeks--it's been a tough couple of weeks for me. I have been sick for nearly 3 weeks, and, thankfully, we've finally figured everything out--I think. Since I last posted, I have had a ton of blood work, a cat scan, an endoscopy, and an urinalysis. I have had an elevated temp (99.5-99.9) for nearly two weeks--that has really bothered me for some reason. Anyway, I went from thinking I was going to have to have my gall bladder out to having acid reflux and a possible urinary tract infection--I say possible because one doctor said I did and today another said I didn't and that she wouldn't have even given me an antibiotic --WHATEVER. I had a little reaction to the antibiotic they gave me Friday so when I went in today the new doctor said I had taken it long enough and could just stop taking it without getting a new one. I feel a little insecure about that, but I will trust her. So, it boils down to this--I'm on ne*xium for acid reflux, and I just semi-finished an antibiotic for a urinary tract infection that may or may not have been there. I'm just glad to be feeling better, because these past couple weeks have really done a number on me. I won't even go into how Satan has messed with my mind--the lies he told nearly drove me CRAZY!! I have worked very hard to stand on the Truth--I didn't always do so well though :) I'm glad that all I have to wait for now is the results of routine biopsies from my endoscopy (down the throat with a camera). I am working hard to relax and deal with these little problems that can come when a person reaches 40--growing older has its challenges.
We had such sad news Saturday night. My cousin's twenty year old daughter was tragically killed in a car accident. She drove off a steep embankment and her car landed upside down in water. It's so sad. B. is out of town this week, but the kids and I plan to head to St Louis tomorrow for the funeral. I am dreading the long drive, but I just feel so bad for my cousin and her family. Please say a prayer if you think to. And I miss my husband, so a prayer that the week would go quickly for me would be nice too!!! One of my cousins may be coming back with me from Missouri to spend the weekend--that will be so very lovely!
The kids went back to school today--they had a really nice spring break. It would have been a ton better if I hadn't been sick and it hadn't been filled with tests for me!!! The weather was extremely nice, and they enjoyed the relaxation time. They will have to miss school tomorrow and Wednesday to go to St Louis--then they have a four day weekend for Easter. They should feel like they've had a nice long break. Only 8 weeks of school after this one. The kids are excited about summer.
I cannot believe it is already Easter. I'm so thankful for the cross and what our Savior did for us. A blessed Easter weekend to all of you...

So sorry to hear about your cousin's daughter; how devastating that must be for the family. Will keep them in my prayers. Also prayers for safe travels for you.

So sad about your cousin. I'm so sorry.

I am also glad you're feeling better. I find it a very hard balance ... medicine, doctors, health in general... now that we have stepped out and are believing for Izzy I feel like I have to believe for me too when I'm sick or it's defeat. I just don't know how to deal with it? How do you?

So sorry to hear of your cousin's daughter. How tragic. We suffered the sudden loss of my BIL last week and it has shook us up as well. I will pray for all of you. Have a safe trip and know that we're all thinking of you.
