But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2Peter 1:5-8

A Little Guessing Game
I want to share with you the gifts I was given by our friend Anne.
I suffered a setback in pain this weekend. Starting Friday the headaches got severe again. I had to take the full dose of medication again all weekend. I had a very bad day on Sunday. I had a break down of sorts. Just cried and cried in pain. Brian took me, no, he insisted on the emergency room. They did the ct scan, which my family doctor had said we would do as the next step. I have no problems there. I am glad to have gotten another doctor's opinion. He wrote out a referral to a neurologist for me. He wrote a prescription for yet another, different pain pill. He feels the neurologist would be the next step if the headaches don't start receding in one week. The neurologist can decide what tests need to be done. He doesn't feel I need to get that temporal artery biopsy that both my pain management doctor and family doctor suggested, just yet. That is something the neurologist can decide. Fine by me. I would be sedated for that. They slice open your temples and take samples of your arteries to see if they are inflamed. o_O
This is how I felt this weekend.
Friends, I know you come here for stitching. I hope you come here for friendship too. Can I just ask, no, beg you to please once again, please? pray for me? Thank you. I appreciate you.♥
Stitching and praying,
