Thank you all so much for the prayers for this recent glitch in my otherwise uneventful life. I've been on a roll for the past month or so talking about cholesterol and my throat -NOT INTERESTING! But since you've been so sweet to pray, I'll update you on the latest.
The last Dr. I saw, also an ENT guy changed all the meds the first dr. had me on-this has been a wonderful improvement! These meds are much easier on the tummy and seem to be helping more than the 12 other ones I was on-go figure. The swelling is 20% down (good) and the cause of the swelling is still to be determined, or not determined I don't know if they know why or not. Follow up in a few weeks. Still rocking it as a liquitarian which by the way is the best weight loss system I've EVER seen! It's not very interesting, but super effective. I'm drinking smoothies like God is going to take the fruit off the Earth pretty soon. And I recently added protein powder to my amazing smoothies that in turn make them taste like vanilla paint chips-ewwwww.
Since this isn't boring enough I will also say-
I've missed going to the gym. I've tried twice this week and made it about 30 minutes before I felt like I was going to pass out. Apparently smoothies don't give you much stamina! But it felt good to go back anyway and I think next week I'll try for 3 days.
I hesitate to really call this a fast because I absolutley, 100% did not plan, pray or prepare for such a situation in ANY way, but I will say it has been neat to see God use it for good anyway. It's amazing how much of our time and lives are wrapped up in food. I've missed spending time with friends over meals for sure, but for the most part it has been really good. I've had more time on my hands, have spent quality time with the Lord and have seen him work in amazing ways in recent days not just in my life but in the lives of those around me. I did not even kinda pick it, but I wouldn't change it. JUST like God to bring something good out of something frustrating.
Seriously, thanks for praying. I've been totally blessed by your concern, love and prayers.
I go through phases where I don't touch my copy of The Message Bible and others where I can't put it down. These verses in 1 Corinthians in The Message have been wonderful comfort to me lately. Enjoy!
7-9Just think—you don't need a thing, you've got it all! All God's gifts are right in front of you as you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale. And not only that, but God himself is right alongside to keep you steady and on track until things are all wrapped up by Jesus. God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure, shares with us the life of his Son and our Master Jesus. He will never give up on you. Never forget that.
