I am sorry it has been several days since I last posted. There has been more than “a lot” going on in my family. I have been trying to nurse my dog back to health from his foot surgery. He is doing very well and I received the wonderful news that my baby boy is cancer free. There was nothing detected in the mass that was removed from his paw.
I have also been taking care of my husband who has been sick for over a month. I had him back in the emergency room all night Thursday night. He was finally diagnosed with a different diagnosis from what he has been diagnosed with all month. I held out hope that he would start to feel better until a Saturday night when he felt terrible and I thought we were heading back to the emergency room. Thankfully he did not, but all day yesterday I remained on pins and needles not knowing if we would be going back and as we go into today, I have no assurance we still will not be back. All I can do is pray he does not and his body begins to heal.
If this was not enough, there was worrying about my daughter who has struggled with a two-week migraine. When she went to bed last night she was so happy to be pain-free, that she wanted to enjoy it because when she woke up this morning, there was no guarantee she would remain pain-free. She also struggled with the pain of a sinus infection, which I am happy to report is gone as well. She is still inflamed, but for her, this is normal. We are just relieved to know the infection is gone.
I have been so consumed by all of this going on and the instability of my family’s health, that I lost my ability to provide encouraging and thought-provoking words to share here. I have been seriously struggling with forming any clarity of thought in order to even put any of my words together.
I am praying this week will bring some much-needed stability back into our lives and home and that I will find my clarity of thought to provide you with words of encouragement again.
I am going to leave you with this thought. Are you struggling with a difficult situation as well? It may not look anything like what I am going through, it may be something entirely different, but what matters the most is that you are not “alone” while you experience your difficulty. Please be assured that although I may be preoccupied with my own difficulties, that I am here if you need an ear to talk to. Feel free to leave a comment below and know I will see it. If you wish to keep your comment private, I can honor that wish in my end as well.
Please do not stay trapped in the darkness of your situation. I know from experience how lonely it is to be there. Talk to someone. Release your emotions before they consume you.
Lastly, Remember This Truth…
