I'm still here...

Thank you for your sweet words of concern!

I'm still here and kicking. It's been a rough week. I started feeling sick on Mother's Day and spent much of the week huddled on the couch with a fever and chills.

I went to the doctor Thursday and he said I had an upper respiratory infection and sinusitus. Two for one!

But don't worry, all was not lost. I had a fun day out on first mammogram!
Being 40 is such a blast, not sure why I didn't try it sooner.

As I write this, I am recovering from a very rough night. On top of everything else, I seem to have a pinched nerve which causes my hands to go numb (and yet be in great pain at the same time) everytime I lay down.
The only thing that seems to eliviate the pain is standing up and walking around, which gets a little exhausting all night long.

It did give me opportunity to pray, so I did plenty of that. I included all of you and your marriages- so I am looking forward to some great testimonies!

I found such comfort in Him, even though the pain did not subside. I know He is my rock, He is my shelter and He is faithful!

Psalms 61:1-4

Hear my cry, O God;listen to my prayer.
2 From the ends of the earth I call to You, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
4 I long to dwell in Your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah

So that is why I have not spent much time on the computer this week. I plan to get to my chiropractor soon and I'm sure things will be much better after that.

So sorry to hear you've had such a rough week. And a smashogram on top of it all! (I posted about mine in April!)

Hang in there!

I was being to wonder what happen.

You know my prayers are with you. Hope you are feeling back to yourself very soon. Consider yourself hugged.

Sometimes I wonder why God uses pain/illness to keep me vigilant in prayer through the night. I mean, couldn't He just ask me to stay up late and chat with HIM?! Or maybe I would say...see you in the morning?

I'm praying that you'll feel better soon...and that you'll feel His Peace in the meantime.

Sorry you were sick. But thank you for praying for all of our marriages.

I'm sorry to hear you've been sick, Sue. And I pray that pain will go away. I was not feeling well on Mother's Day and am taking medicine for an infection. Try to take it easy.

Oh Sue, I am so sorry to hear that you have not been well! YES...get to your Chiropractor immediately. We go EVERY week (the entire family) for preventative maintenance (I am 100% serious).

At least you got to wait until you were 40 for your first mammo...I had one at 26, one at 28, one 6 months ago, and now I just found out I HAVE to have them annually and I am only 36...what's up with that?!?!?!

Just checking in and hoping that you're feeling better!

Praying that you have some relief from you pain. What a week girl.

Dionna said...

I'm so sorry about your pinched nerve/disc! I do hope it eases up or goes away soon! I can imagine that it is terribly uncomfortable.
On another note, I had my first mammogram this year as well. Not fun but better than I was anticipating.
