And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall make your path straight.

- Proverbs 3:5-6

Just when I thought it was safe to go back in the water...

My title is the catch phrase used for promoting the sequel to "Jaws". Music in a minor chord, threat from below, dark danger. My digestive system. Yep, just when we were all breathing a sigh of relief and I had gained enough energy to do two and, sometimes, three things in a day, I have developed some very frustrating painful issue in my stomach and intestines. Waiting didn't make it go away. Herbs, either. Acupuncture helps for awhile. Painkillers just make me even more useless than I already am. But, that's what I've devolved to. Crud. On Monday I go back to the hospital for appointments (the one to see if I'm ready for surgery will, no doubt, be a waste of time) and for making one appointment for a scope. Pretty soon there will be almost as many pictures of the inside of me as the outside. Ones you won't be seeing on Facebook.

Why, yes, this is disheartening. But God is taking care of me and this is all just clouds.
