    There are a myriad of health issues going on, and none of them are very simple. I'm very thankful to now have a husband who is very caring and attentive. He keeps me going to my appointments, which is probably half the battle as on my own, I would give up and just not go.

    I'd appreciate prayer for these issues. Here are the top three concerns:

    1. I was hospitalized for 4 or 5 days in the cardiac ward, admitted through the ER. During this they found I have an enlarged heart. Cause unknown. I just had a stress test, but the results aren't in yet.

    2. Thyroid: I have a mass, that's not news, but now I've been referred to a surgeon. That appointment is coming up soon. My previous experience with getting medical work done by military staff was mostly with "newbies" who kinda just closed their eyes and aimed with the needles (hehehe) but the appointment is with someone who has been in for a loooong time and that's good. Still, I hate laying down and baring my neck to strangers who are holding sharp objects. It goes against my gut instincts of safe ways to behave.

    3. Chronic pain levels. I have nerve damage that can make some days very very miserable as opposed to just plain miserable. Usually I can do okay, especiall if I continually remind myself that pain isn't scary, it's just the body's way of saying something isn't right. Still, I know it makes me a lot more short-tempered than comes naturally to me and much less tolerant of...well, humans. I have to fight the tendency to just crawl into an empty boot and hide in the toe section where nobody can see or talk to me or need me for anything. That's really not a good thing when five kids are looking at you to be an example of holy Christian living and the model of Mommyosiousness, let alone the daily example to others that we're required to be as Christians.

    Thank you. Pain level right this moment is, on a scale of 1-10, the number OUCH.

    It's very quiet this time of morning though. Maybe it's a sign that I should stay up at night and sleep during the day. hmmm

    Thank you dear friends, for prayers that go up for me!

    Just an update.

    1. Heart: Looks like something was misplaced, so still no answer!

    2. Thyroid: Surgeon asked if I wanted it done this week or next. It's scheduled for early next month. I'm VERY thankful that he will remove only half of it. In another state, I refused surgery because they wanted to remove all of it and put me on pills for the rest of my life. This way, no pills. Whoo-hoo!

    3. Pain. Ugh. Still there, but I'm getting breaks and taking less medication than I was. Yay!

    There was an extra punch in the stomach today that I'm not comfortable going into detail on right this second, but will when I can. Thank you, on behalf of myself and my husband, for our brothers and sisters in Christ intervening in prayer for these health issues.

    Thyroid surgery is over, am at home recovering. For the less queasy, the story is on my blog, along with a pic...I'll update it every day if possible as I heal.
    I know I went searching for pics to see what I was gonna face, so if anyone wants a day by day of how it looks and heals, there ya go!

    e pain, swelling, and hardness. Actually, a lot so I'm in the ER. They have me on dilotid, zofran, and an Iv drip. They may or may not admit me. Will post most recent photo on blog when I get home.

    Thank you so much. The infection went down rather quickly and tomorrow I'm going to go to work for half a day to see how it goes. I'm still tiring very rapidly, but the meds keep the swelling down to a very tolerable level. Now it's basically just more annoying than anything, and that will lessen since I started remembering they told me to stretch those muscles to keep the tightness to a minimum. I'm such a scatterbrain!

    Now I did attempt to sing this morning and my husband came rushing in to see what was wrong with me. :laugh: Can ya believe that?! He asked what I was whining for! ROFL
