Revisiting the Marina's Kitchen Table Archives - #7
I'm sharing those first writings again, as we make another move, and I anticipate my time at the computer to be more focused on getting the work done on that handbook on Missionary Care.
I hope that you enjoy these entries as much as I do. I have NO idea where this journey will go, as I was as irregular a writer then as I am now! :) Some things never change!
Today I needed to know that. I have been dealing with an ongoing nuisance health problem. I use that term because it is not something that everyone can see, and it doesn't APPEAR to be life threatening, and my personal physician thinks it's just the effects of a previous
problem that has already been solved, like scar tissue. In my heart of hearts, I have felt (since last May) that there is something more going on. It's not ugly. It's not incredibly painful, just
uncomfortable. It just bugs me.
Today was THE DAY. I saw a new Dr., a SPECIALIST, and he confirmed that this probably had nothing to do with the other problem (that has since been resolved). Although he isn't sure WHAT it is, he knows what steps to take to identify the problem, and will have options to
correct it/deal with it. With his words, I cried. Not sad tears, but tears of relief! Confirmation!
Now, nothing horrible happened today. I had some blood work done in preparation for a CAT scan (Fri) and I will not know those results until next week. Even that will be a "painless procedure" and I have nothing to fear. Yet there is this level of suspense that looms in my
heart. Not quite fear, maybe anticipation. Like preparing for a journey, and not knowing what to expect on the trip.
