….to have so many wonderful sisters (and brothers, Ron!) in Christ who are praying for me and leaving such wonderful notes of encouragement for me. I sat at the computer and cried this morning as I read all of the precious comments. I was encouraged and lifted up to know that so many people are praying for me. The Body of Christ is especially beautiful to me right now. And since we’ve just left our church of nine years, this has spoken to me so clearly of how the Body is not confined to one group of people or one building.
I saw my doctor this morning and feel encouraged that he is taking measures to find out what is going on. He said that the elevated dopamine levels could be from something else, but a tumor is definitely a possibility and we need to check on that right away. His nurse is setting up referrals and appointments for me for a CAT scan of my entire torso, and to see an endocrinologist and gastro-intestinal specialist. I will also go in tomorrow morning before I eat and have some more blood drawn to test levels that are specific to the endocrine system.
I am hoping and praying that it won’t take long to get the necessary referrals from my insurance company and to get the appointments set up. The waiting and wondering is the worst. I’ll feel better emotionally when I know exactly what we’re dealing with and have a plan in place to start fixing things.
On a happier note, Kevin and I are going out tonight to the movies to see Firewall and celebrate our 11th anniversary. It’s actually tomorrow, but our little town only has one theater and tomorrow Ice Age 2 will start and we’ll wait and see that one with the kids – who will appreciate it more.
Thank you again for being such a blessing in my life! I never imagined when I started this blog that God would use the people who read it to build me up and challenge me and to be true friends.
