Friday Wrap Up
It has been a week of lurking--yes, I have visited each of your blogs this week but have not left comments. After being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis fifteen years ago, I am having my first flare up. Who would have thought that typing could be so painful! I saw my Doctor yesterday, and he prescribed a dose of Prednisone and I will begin taking an arthritis medication next week. Apparently, Prednisone is a fast acting inflamation reducing med and he guaranteed I should be feeling some relief by this afternoon. Greater than the pain in my hands is the extreme fatigue I have been feeling. I look forward to the return of my energy....whereby, I will once again vacuum....and typing "HI!" when I visit your blogs! Well, vacuuming-maybe; but de-lurking...FOR SURE!
The weather in Minnesota is delightful! I do believe Spring has sprung! We are expecting a much needed rain this weekend--let the green spring forth!
I awoke this morning realizing that I had been praying in my sleep for Heather! Yesterday, Heather had brain surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester to remove a brain tumor. I checked her blog several times yesterday, as many of you did, and appreciated every update! Heather's faith enriches my life and is such a testimony to the hundreds, yes, even the thousands who are following her struggle. She is living the words she types my blogging friends! What an inspiration.
My 'MIP' is having a good week. His back is healing and he continues to do twice-weekly physical therapy and chiropractic care. He also is making great progress as he sees his new Psychologist and attends a weekly support group. He and his Dad have scheduled another appointment to meet with the Psychologist next week and have scheduled an appointment for a joint meeting with Psychologist, patient, parents, and Psychiatrist to determine the right medications. To this point, he has been treated for Bi-polar disorder, however, this Psychologist does not believe he is Bi-polar; he believes he suffers with a 'severe spectrum' of ADHD. Mental health is not a quick diagnosis which is a bit frustrating but we are focusing on the hope of finding just the right treatment that will give him the best shot of moving forward. We are giving this process over to God and know that He will direct--we see His handiwork even in the midst of changing circumstances. Heather is so right....."God is good....ALL the time!"
Thanks for your visits this week....I will try to be a better-blogging-friend!
Have a great weekend!
