***Warning...Explicit Details of My Current Condition***

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Yesterday, when I arrived at work, I felt fine. Arrived with my grande White Chocolate Mocha coffee, had a banana, grape protein smoothie prior,and was prepared for benchmark testing...It hit me like a Mack truck. A sharp pain launched itself inside my abdominal area. I hunched over during testing. I tried to play it off, leaned over as if it was nothing.

Fast forward a few hours later... emoticon
I had 3 bowel movements in a 4 hour time span...NOT GOOD!
Talk about light brown, stinky, stick-to-the-toilet...icky!

I explained to a dear, friend & colleague,"It hurts so bad!" with tears emoticon slowly trickling along the side of my cheek. I barely trudged down the hall after leaving my students in the cafeteria. My colleague told me, "That's it, Sonya. You're going to the hospital. Call your husband and I'll tell (insert principal's name)."

Just LOVE her. she's a true "ride or die" chick! I knew I was in good hands from that moment on.

Moments later, I arrived at the hospital. I was finally seen and treated 2 hours later with a CT scan and given morphine prior to manage the pain. I was instructed to eat soft foods, stay hydrated, and rest. So today I remained home, until filling my Rx emoticon
and scheduled an appointment with a reputable GI. Drowsiness is the side effect...NO driving!
My diagnosis (in my opinion)has to do with past small intestinal issues and blockage from a benign grapefruit-sized tumor which had been removed after 6 months of suffering and being mis-diagnosed as having Crohns disease. This was about 11 years ago.
Let's just say I went from a size 12 to a size 2, hardly able to digest Ensure. Yeah, I was in BAD shape.

I planned to be more explicit, but decided to give just enough details so you get the picture without "getting the picture" if you know what I mean...

Keep me in your prayers! I pray also for an immediate, accurate diagnosis.

    As a fellow teacher, I'm glad someone told you to go and drove you to the hospital. Teachers think that the world stops when we leave, but it does keep turning.

I hope you recovery quickly! Hopefully, it's something that is easily treated and remedied. Prayers are coming.

Dear Father It's Not Your Will For Your Children To Suffer As My Sister Sonya. I Pray For An Immediate ACCURATE Diagnosis In Agreement With Sonya. I Pray For Your Wisdom To Guide The Physician To The REAL Problem. I Thank You Father That YOU Are The TRUE Healer And I Pray That You Manifest Your Healing Power In Sonya's Body Removing ALL Pain And Sickness From Her Body In Jesus' Name. She IS Redeemed From The Curse Of The Law And Is In The Kingdom And I Thank You Lord For Your Healing Mercies! Thank YOU Father That You Heard Me. You Said To Pray One for Another That We May Be Healed. I Believe I Receive In Jesus' Name!
May You Rest Comfortably And Peacefully As You Sleep Sonya!

What a time of it you've had! Cannot imagine what you have gone through, but glad to hear that you had a sharp colleague there helping with the very necessary arrangments of getting you to the hospital. Dealing with pain is one thing .... dealing with pain alone or without knowing what is happening is a totally different circumstance.
Hoping your prognosis is one that comes with a safe, speedy and simply cure. I'm thinking it will. emoticon

Marriage: A Dance, Not A Debate

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Ed Young made this very clear in today's message.
God is the choreographer.
He referenced Ephesians 5:18-22 as for the wife's job description.
"And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord."

Additionally, 1 Peter 3:1; 4-6

Message: Wives...
Live a Christian life.
Let the INSIDE of your life speak.
Trust your husband.
Be feminine (taste, class, dignity).
Have a gentle, quiet spirit.
Intelligence.
Likes to have fun.
Make husbands feel BIG/ important.

These are the wives' job descriptions according to the Word.


Ed Young is the pastor of "The Winning Walk" - televised program.


Dance in step with your spouses for supernatural and physical harmony!

    Girl, say it. I love that the word is clear about how we as wives should conduct ourselves. What the word doesn't say is if your husband isn't treating you the way God says you can then treat him any old kind of way. I like that God's word doesn't give us an excuse to act in a way contrary to God.
