This has been an absolutely crazy week! Since I last blogged, I have worked at Operations Christmas Child which is an absolute blessing that I encourage everyone to participate in! OCC works to provide a Christmas for thousands upon thousands kids around the world who may never get another gift. By someone taking the time to fill one shoebox with toys and hygienece items (which is what $10?), they are making such a difference in one child’s life. I was so touched when I left. I have felt led to commitment to filling the shoe box every time I buy a pair of shoes. Not only will it be budget friendly (if I can’t afford to fill the box, I can’t buy the shoes) but I know that God’s love will be shown to shown to a child.
In addition to that the semester is finally OVER! Woo-hoo! :::happy dance::: Finals weren’t too bad but I’m just glad its done. I’m not 2/3 of the way through! Graduation is in sight! :::happy dance some more:::
On not such a positive note, John landed in the ER this morning. He went to his parents as his grandmother (who’s 88) had surgery yesterday (she made it through beautiful–praise God!) but this morning he woke up with either food poisoning or a serious virus. He was throwing up every 10 minutes and being diabetic that can cause some major issues. So he ended up dehydrated and had to go to ER for fluids. But he is now safely back at his parents resting. I feel horrible that I am not there with him. But at least I now he is getting good care! Hopefully he should be home tomorrow!
I also got my second opinion and saw a new rheumotologist and it was great. He confirmed my fibromyalgia diagnosis but that’s not the good part. The good part was that he actually listened and made me feel so comfortable. He welcomed my questions and just gave me hope for living a fulfilling life with fibro. So I feel like pain-free days may be on the horizon!
