P.S. A personal update. During this past week, I had to begin I injecting myself with medication. My previous medications were not working they way they should and this was the next step. To say I was freaked out would be a huge understatement. Scary because of the thought of having to give myself a shot. Scary because I thought we would get a couple of years of relief from the first medications. Scary because there are some long-term side effects. It has made me unhappy, bitter, and very angry. Sparing you all the details of my downward spiral, today, things are much better. I have an amazing group of supportive family and friends who are constantly lifting me up in prayer. Their prayers have bolstered me and kept a small glimmer of hope alive. And thankfully, God is still here, dragging me along. The shot was not as bad as I built it up to be in my over-active imagination. And to see improvement with 24 hours has put a very large smile back on my face! By the next morning, the large lump on my left wrist was gone. By the weekend, I had feet, toes, and ankles again. There is still pain and fatigue. But it has reached a point of being tolerable. Once again, I can think about maybe living a normal life again, with some modifications. This brings a favorite Bible verse to mind, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13. Without Him, without faith, without hope, my life is bleak. Even worse than I could imagine. But if I trust in Him (and with that His plan and my doctors) I can do this.
