I haven't written a blog post in two weeks, so I thought it was high time I wrote one! :D
I don't really have anything particular to write about, but I have a few things in mind that I'd like to share with you all.
I have collected a lot of prayer requests for several different people.
Jackie: she is a young adult and has developed Lymphoma. She needs a lot of prayer to have the strength to get through this.
Elliot Ray: he is having surgery on Tuesday to go have some gallstones removed, and if I'm correct his gallbladder as well. So I can imagine that he needs some serious prayer!
Lauren: She is having some joint problems and such. She is in a lot of pain all the time, but she is a strong minded girl and doesn't hardly ever let her friends know that she is in pain. And she has what sounds like Bronchitis. :(
Aiden: He has Leukemia. He is four-years-old and his mom is only twenty-four. They are having a particular hard time.
Rachelle: my best friend has, well, nobody really knows what. She has been sick since this past Wednesday and she needs prayer.
Last, but not least, myself. I honestly don't know what is wrong with me. My doctors are still trying to figure it out. Basically, for all of you who don't know, I started out back in July of 2011 with my right hip swelling. It was just ever so slight, but then my leg started to swell. Then I began to have leg pains quite frequently. I had a couple of bone scans, x-rays, and CT scans. All of which revealed that nothing was wrong with my bones. I went to a few specialists, and was diagnosed with Bursitis. I was then assigned physical therapy, and an anti-inflammatory drug. This was all just a trial run to see if the Bursitis had developed on it's own or if there was an underlying problem. The medicine and physical therapy did nothing, except cause me to have bad side effects and irritate my leg. Just this past week I have been having terrible leg pains and slight seizures. I am scheduled to have an MRI on Tuesday. I'm nervous about the whole thing, as I have never had one before and I'm also nervous as to what the doctors might find. So, if you all could just pray that I would have total peace with resting in Jesus' arms and giving Him the whole situation to do with as he pleases, that would be super!! And don't forget the afore said people. :D
