Jean, I am glad you have come to the acceptance of your LE and realizing it is doable and not cancer. That is a great place to be.
Hershey, thank you for giving Heather some good advice. I hope she has found this thread again. I remember when I first found it when I tried to find it again it wasn't so easy.
Wheatfields, it really is important to get those scopes. I have had GI issues for years and when I changed to a new gastroenterologist years ago he immediately wanted both scopes done. I was not thrilled BUT if I hadn't got them it could have been bad news down the line. They discovered a precancerous polyp in my colon and polyps in my stomach which I think is unusual. They do a twilight kind of sedation where you won't remember any of it when it is done. I was able to have both done at the same time which makes it much more convenient as you have to have a driver for these procedures. If they find polyps in the colon they simply remove them while you are in your twilight sleep.
Carol, we should compare notes on the insomnia. I may try a new cocktail of supplements starting tonight. I have found that my system sort of gets used to certain meds and then becomes ineffective. So we'll see. Looking forward to your next blog post. I volunteered at an assisted living facility for 8 yrs and the last few years of that my ministry partner and I were on the "lockdown" floor with dementia patients. We would have a time of singing the old hymns. I would get so teary eyed and emotional that I had to stop singing. Some of the residents who who hardly spoke would sing and light up still remembering the old hymns. Great Is Thy Faithfulness is such a great reminder of the goodness of God. Thanks for sharing that.
GB. I am glad to hear work is going okay. Your orthodontics hopefully will be a good thing once they can get them adjusted. As someone who never had braces but now probably need them (not happening though at my age) I don't have a lot of experience with that other than my night guard I wear at night for TMJ but hopefully the discomfort of them will pay off in the end. Your bluebirds sound wonderful. I am watching two baby bunnies on my patio. One came right up to my patio door looking inside. It would have been a beautiful cute pic but I was too tired to get up and take one. I ordered some things to create a hummingbird fountain. I can't wait for the the last of the set up to come on Friday.
Chris. OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't want to say I can't believe it because I have prayed for this for years for you and still pray for that. Wow and wow and wow are my words for the moment. Now my prayer is that your body will adjust to the new med so you won't have so many side effects. That must be one powerful med that God has led the oncologist to use for you. I can't even imagine what you are feeling right now. I am SO happy for you. That just made my day!!!!!
Thank you for all for welcoming Heather. I do hope she will post again and let us know how she is doing.
Thank you for your prayers for me in my Covid recuperation. I am doing much, much better but I am still having some fatigue. I FINALLY got my master bathroom completely clean. Just finished cleaning the tub this afternoon. That felt like climbing Mt Everest just a week or so ago even thinking about doing that. I did resume my walking on Saturday and had planned on going to church yesterday but had another night of insomnia so stayed home and was pretty tired the whole day. Today feeling much better.
Have a great week dear sisters. It is always so uplifting to hear some great news.
