Week 5

Well, I'm at a bit of a weird spot in the recovery process. (I promise I'll try not to bore you, my rapt audience, with too much about my "illness"; however, it's kind of where I'm living right now.) I'm at that strange place where I think I should be doing better than I am. Last week I was able to spend hours at IHC hugging necks and giving updates, but the prospect of just doing normal work this week overwhelms me. I think adrenaline is a beautiful thing, and I'm sure that had much to do with my stamina. I'm dying to get back to a regular schedule, but the thought of that terrifies me right now. The fact that I ran out of pain meds isn't helping my outlook at the moment. Don't worry, I have a call in to get more. :) Anyway, I need help finding the balance between being a pathetic "sickly" individual who should just buck up and get to work and a workaholic who will drive myself into a physical setback by not paying attention to my body. So, if you could spare a prayer, send it this way. I really am doing well. I have nothing to complain about. I just need help with balance right now. I find myself to be quite human with a great need to avail myself of the rest of the Body. Thanks for being part of it! Your presence is a comfort.

You are entitled to these feelings. Maybe keep a little brown bag available. Panic attacks are bound to be in order! Is there a time better than others for me to call you?? I'd really like to talk and catch up; I think I have your cell#. Is that your preference?
Praying for you DAILY.

Sounds good. Any time is fine. If I can't talk, we can work out another time. The cell is good. Bless you!

Please keep us updated on your"health issues", it helps me know how to pray and it keeps me updated on your life, so don't hessitate to share. Also, we are getting to the age that we talk a lot about our health, I've found myself talking a lot lately about herbal remedies and a wonderful new discovery called dieter's tea. (trust me, it has nothing to do with dieting.) :) Love you friend!

Have you ever considered trying THE MOST AMAZING HERBS ON EARTH? I know a lady who knows a man who had a heart transplant and then he started taking THE MOST AMAZING HERBS ON EARTH and now his heart works just fine.

I just wanted to say I was watching the Hobe Sound service online a few days ago and Pastor Peirpoint asked everyone to come forward with their burdens and pray. I saw your dear mother walk to the front, sit on the front pew and pray and I have an idea who she's was praying for. We are all praying for you. Believe me...God is using you in this trial to bring Glory to Him and that's what it's all about.
