Scary moment this am

I woke up at 5am to go to the bathroom this morning and ended up in the floor. As soon as I stood up it was like my legs gave way underneath me. So I ended up waking up John as I bounced of the wall into the floor. It was definitely one of the most scary things I have ever experienced. It took me a good 60 to 90 seconds to feel like I could stand up again. It hasn’t happened since but I was sure to get up slowly when I got up for the day. I’m wondering if it was just a fluke or something to be concerned with. I mean last night I took all of my prescribed meds & vitamins at once (like usual just with the addition of the prednison and vicodin) so I’m not sure if it was a bad combo or maybe I slept funny. I know the drug info sheet that came with the prednisone said to alert doctor of muscle weakness so I’m not sure whether to call or just wait it out. I always feel stupid talking to my neuro anyway so I really don’t want to call if its not necessary. Oh, I’m not capable of making decisions this morning!

Nothing Without You

This completely sums up my day:

Nothing Without You by Bebo Norman

Take these hands and lift them up
For I have not the strength to praise You near enough
For I have nothing, I have nothing without You

Take my voice and pour it out
Let it sing the songs of mercy I have found
For I have nothing,
I have nothing without You

Chorus: All my soul needs
Is all Your love to cover me
So all the world will see
That I have nothing without You

Take my body and build it up
May it be broken as an offering of love
For I have nothing,
I have nothing without You

All my soul needs
Is all Your love to cover me
So all the world will see

But I love You
With all my heart
With all my soul
With all my mind
And all the strength I can find

All my soul needs
Is all Your love to cover me
So all the world will see I have nothing

Take my time here on earth
And let it glorify all that You are worth
For I am nothing, I am nothing,
I am nothing without You

Dear God–I am nothing without You. Let me become less so that You can become greater in my life. You are everything I need and long for. In Jesus’ name–Amen.
